Hmm... well... junior year is drawing to a close (I'm 17 btw), doesn't look like I broke into a 3.0 with my GPA... My grade is in the low 80s as of now and likely stayed that way, so, wow, I'm really depressed, there's just no hope, is there? My only hope is that they acknowledge that, with the school I'm in, my B- is equivalent to a B+ most places, maybe higher. My other good point is that I did relatively well on my first SAT without studying (1840), but, other than that. What is there to do at this point?

My sister got into college and got scholarships with a GPA of 2.7. And no we're not very poor or anything. Schools honestly oversell things like GPA and test scores. You can still get into college and get scholarships with average grades. They call it average for a reason, it not awful nor is it amazing.
I know of people who got an 1850 on their sats and got into Berkeley.
And if your feeling that bad try really hard next year. Maybe get a tutor over the summer to help clarify things you didn't do well on or to make you a little ahead before the incoming year.
But seriously calm down. I stressed way too much about school and it's not that big if a deal0
