Just wondering, what schools reward reinvention? I see that phrase a lot on the WAMC forum, it would be nice if some one could list them out. Also does a 3.6 for a semester count as an upward trend, considering for example your gpa was like a 3.0?

Paging @Goro for the reinvention list. As to the second question, no; there needs to be a longer period of sustained academic performance for it to be an upward trend.

I understand that a trend needs to be for a sustained period of time, but would a 3.6 over 3 semester be considered a trend? One of my friends is in that situation and was wondering if that would be considered a noticeable upwards trend.

My rule of thumb is 3.7+. You need to be aceing things, not Beesing them.
