That ratio frightens me. I'm a terrible procrastinator, and I already struggle with getting things done last minute, and staying on-task while studying is difficult. However, I've become a bit obsessive (and competitive) with my grades this year, so I plan on spending more time on homework. A 2.8 GPA is pretty good for the amount of time you spent, I'd imagine. Somehow I scraped through last semester with a 3.7, despite the fact that I never study and suck at homework. I think it's a pretty decent GPA though, because AP classes are hard. XD
