I would suggest applying to your in-state schools (since tuition is lower for in-state students) and other colleges that would be affordable for you. Also, apply for a bunch of scholarships that don't consider grades. There are many scholarships for women, bipoc, lgbtq+, specific majors, and just random ones that don't rely on grades. Some sites I use to find scholarships are Scholarships360, College Board, and Bold.org.

I hope this helped!
