Is a 2.0 GPA bad?

To be quite direct, a 2.0 grade point average is not good, but that does not necessarily mean that you will not get into a college that suits your needs and desires. As already mentioned, SAT/ACT scores are equally important, and they may demonstrate intelligence that is not reflected in your GPA. Naturally, many things can factor into a not-so-great GPA: personal issues, medical issues, family situations, or just a poor work ethic that a student is looking to rectify once he/she gets into college.

Nonetheless, your GPA and SAT/ACT scores are merely the quantitative aspects of your application. The qualitative aspects can be just as important. Some schools may want an army of 4.3 GPA, 1550 SAT automatons accounting for the composite of the campus; however, other schools, especially liberal arts colleges, look for what you can bring to the collegiate table that is unqiue, creative, different. Essays are the best place to shine when it comes to this. Also important is extra-curricular activity. Undergraduate study is not suppose to be merely for geniuses who wish to make scholarly pursuits their life-long occupation. If you have anxiety over your GPA, funnel that energy into areas that will improve the qualitative portion of your application.

Most importantly, have fun with the application, and make the most of your college experience, wherever you go.

Is a 3.34 GPA and a weighted 4.17 GPA a bad GPA. i took no AP classes or honors classes either. my weighted GPA is based on college prep courses. is that bad?

College prep courses are not weighted, so your gpa, both weighted and unweighted, is a 3.34. The only way to get above a 4.0 is to take either honors or AP classes. If its bad or not depends on what kind of school you want to go to, and remember, colleges don't only look at gpa, they also look at standardized test scores (SAT and ACT) and extracurriculars.

Is a 3.083 good or bad GPA?

Considering that a GPA of 4.0 would be the equivalent of 100%, having a GPA of approximately 3.0 as yours is would be similar to having an average of 80% in all courses via the GPA scale. So it is decent and is acceptable. So whether it is "Good or Bad" is subject to your discretion depending on your personal values in excelling.
