Can my 3.2 become a 3.5?

I am a rising senior and originally had a 3.7 gpa before Covid however during this virtual year my grades took a drastic drop from mainly high A's to

low C's and B's. I know that it is probably not possible to get it back to a 3.7 by the time college applications are due but is there a way that I could at least get it back to a 3.5 by that time( which is a semester). I will be taking 3 AP classes(possibly 4) 1 honors class and and 3 regular classes.

I am in the same situation and the best thing to do now is to either improve your other stuff such as extracurriculars, essays, recommendation of letters, as well as your standardized test scores. As of now, I have a 3.5 GPA and dropped from a 3.8 or 3.9, which is pretty bad lol. As long as other elements of college admissions are par or better, you shall do fine.

Only you can figure that out based on how your school weights AP and honors classes.
