I will be starting my Junior year this week. I currently have a (very horrible) 2.6 GPA, with 67 credits taken so far (I had one very horrible semester due to a family issue and that cause my very average GPA to tumble down to a horrible level; I did retake some of these classes but they haven't been replaced yet, so my GPA will be close to a 3.0 once that happens, but for the sake of this question I'm not thinking about that boost as of right now). I still have this upcoming year and next year worth of classes (about 40 credits left to take towards my major). Assuming I do good from this point on how much can my GPA possibly rise by the time I graduate? I'm just trying to find a little motivation before the semester starts, because I feel pretty bad at this point and I don't want my motivation to go down before the semester even starts. I know I'm probably jumping to far ahead and I should just focus on now, but I just want to know how far I can raise a 2.6 GPA in 2 years. Also, any tips on anything extra I could do? Aside from doing really well in my remaining courses towards my major, should I take a few easy/enjoyable non-science courses that I could guarantee an A in just for a little extra, or would those extra credits work against me in the calculation of my GPA? I'm not even asking this question thinking about med school admission, as I'm sure that dream will remain just that, but just in terms of my GPA at the end of my undergraduate studies. Please help with any advice possible!
