    You posted this SAME question 3 days ago on here... Did you honestly think you would get a different answer? To be blunt, stop posting the same question expecting a different answer and start working on improving you GPA.

    Off the top IMO GPA needs a bump up. You will find most here that are successful at the scholarships are either strait A students. and there will be a few with some B's sprinkled in occasionally. Make sure you are really preparing for the SAT or ACT or better yet BOTH, as often as you can.
