Do you think i should bother applying for college?
Am i wasting my time? Trying to get good grades?
Assuming that it is only your grades that are holding you back, college is still a possibility. You should probably start out by doing a two year degree program at a communitee college and then plan to transfer to a four year college later.
If you choose to do that than check on the general education requirements for the University that you plan to transfer to so that you can get as many of those classes out of the way as you can. There is a good chance that you will be able to enter the University as a Junior after two years at the community college.
In any case, it is a good idea to think about why your grades are low and what, if anything, you can change to ensure that you do better in college before you make your decision.
Teachers wouldn’t let you into AP classes with your current GPA, you have to have a high GPA to be able to succeed in those classes.
If you get straight A’s it may be possible to have a good gpa.
YOU ARE NOT WASTING YOUR TIME
obviously you are smart from those scores, just bring the grades up.
I definitely think you should apply for college. State colleges will usually let in more people then private ones, but i really think you should apply. You can’t get in if you don’t send out the forms. Good luck.
You can take a break, and look into self paced on line programs, classes at an adult education center, or local community college/ Vo-tech.
There is always more than one way to obtain an education, you do not have to follow the traditional route.
It’s absolutely not out of the question! Keep trying. If you want to go, you can do it.
