What can I do to help me get into college?
Answered

I am a senior and up until recently I never had an interest in going to college, as a result my grades suffered severely. What can I do as a senior that can raise my chances of getting admitted into college?

While it is a little too late to improve your grades, you can improve your ec's by volunteering or joining school clubs. Furthermore, you can consider community college, which isn't a bad choice because you save a lot of money and then can transfer to a good 4-year university. My final advice is not to stress out too much because there are options for you!

You are very close to being out of time. If your GPA is super bad and you know 100% you won't get into any colleges, attend your local community college, go there for a year, then transfer if you want.
