Is a GPA of 2.89 good?

Is a 2.9 GPA good? A 2.9 GPA means that you’ve earned mainly Bs in all of your classes. This GPA is slightly below the 3.0 national average GPA for high school students, so it will limit the range of colleges where you can expect to be accepted. You have a low chance of getting into with a 2.9 GPA.
