Sorry, the iPad has already been invented. However, this article below provides some useful ideas on how you can compensate for your low GPA.
Your high school grades matter and your grade point average is one consideration colleges use when weighing your application. A low GPA can present an obstacle, but given that it isn’t the only criteria that colleges use, there are other areas of your schooling that just might tip things in your favor.
1. College entrance exams. Many colleges and universities require students to take an SAT or ACT test, which can provide a good indicator on how students will perform academically in college. Take a college test prep course to help you get ready. If your scores come in lower than you like, then study again and retake the test. Your GPA may be low, but your SAT or ACT scores could advance your case for application.
2. Beef up your extracurricular activities. It should be no secret to you that colleges are looking for a well-rounded student. Your GPA may be low, but if you’ve involved yourself in activities other than your classwork, your participation can make a difference too. Marching band, athletics and clubs are some of the school activities that can help you out. Volunteer work at your church is another plus as is working part-time to help raise money for college.
