Try to raise your GPA as much as you can before admissions roll around. You can also try some online resources to help raise your ACT score. Outside of that, make sure you have strong essays and extracurriculars. For ECs, try to find something that you are passionate about or something that relates to your major. Bonus points if you start or are in charge of a club. Also, if you are a stellar athlete, you could use that to help you get in as well, especially at D1 schools. GPA isn't everything!
