Last year (freshman year) i got a 2.7GPA first sem and a 2.5 2nd sem. and as of right now my gpa is a 2.68 (this is really bad). it now 2nd semester and i am trying to do good and maybe get around a 3.5 (mostly B's). i play sports but i am not the captian of any of them and im just on the team. i currently dont have a job this year but i am planning on getting one next year. i volunteer at a hospital and will prob have 150+ hours done by senior year.
