I go to Iowa State University, which is a decent college for engineering, not great. My GPA is not good right now (3.3, about to be 3.6ish after finals next week). I will try to ace every single college class for my next 2.5-3 years in college. I will tackle heavy courseloads, and still work in a research lab, play ultimate frisbee, and join clubs if I have time. Unfortunately, your GPA is Mandatory for basically everything from REUs, scholarships, to grad school. Judging by my GPA and the fact that I'm an international student, it's clear that I'm in no shape to apply for anything remotely competitive at this time. I'm tired of getting rejected. I want to really change my resume so that I can get the positions I want and the money I Need. What can you tell me that will help me? Please be as specific as you like. Examples and stories would be great as well.
