The first thing you need to do is change the way you're looking at it. It's never too late.Originally posted by Inactive UserI don't know what to do anymore
I'm a Junior in high school closing in on my 2nd semester and I have a 2.7 GPA overall (3 years)
I've been getting all 90's with the exception of one class this semester but I feel its too late to do anything anymore. How much can I increase my GPA senior year? Do colleges even look at senior year? What should I do to maximize my chances of getting into a good college?

Senior year take challenging courses, AP, or Honors.
As far as electives go, find ones that interest you, but could possibly be GPA booster-type classes
Get involved in clubs at your school
Get involved in volunteer work in your area
Study your ass off for the SAT's, and yes, you can study for them, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
If it comes down to it take the ACTs as well
Write well thought out college essays, if your GPA doesn't improve, you can explain to them the reasoning behind your not so hot grades, but don't make excuses.
Follow up on colleges, meaning, take visits, keep in contact with the schools you are applying to, because yes, they do keep track of what do you involving the school itself, and how it may reflect how interested you are in going there.
Don't let anyone tell you colleges don't look at your senior year grades, because they do, and if they see improvement it can help you.
Don't be a douche-bag and get "senioritis", work your ass on the last year, all of it counts.
