    Just a FYI but, you will get a hoard of flames and acerbic responses that will accuse you of posting in another person's name when you are describing your own situation (i.e. "my girlfriend" is you).

    However, no she is definitely not in out of the running, it's her first year in college, and if there's any year that can be "screwed up" it will be your first year. As long as she shows marked improvement and can bring up her cumulative GPA over the years, she should be ok although she may need to explain briefly in her personal statement.
