Want to know what a low GPA is? try a 2.3 (on 4.0 scale)

I am a big drama student (vice pres of school drama board) i do millions of things outside of school, on a bunch of class council things. I am pretty sure i had really good recomendations and i think my essay was pretty good. How often do good colleges take chance on a kid who is really smart (i do computer programming and stuff) but could never get good grades.

If you mean the Ivies - I don't think you're going anywhere. Unless of course, you won some incredible honors, or your parents can donate a new library.

Try Kenyon. They have a good drama dept. Paul Newman went there. Very good English/writing dept too. If you're looking for a LAC, you might like it.
