Personally, I didn't have the best grades my freshman - junior years in high school, but was involved in many extra curricular activities and had loads of volunteer hours. I was also able to make straight A's my senior year, - in upper level classes - which showed that I had gotten my 'shit' together.
There are many things that make up a well-rounded student/individual. If you are concerned about not meeting the requirements for admittance, you should talk to an advisor at the school you're looking at and ask them what you can do to make yourself more appealing to the university in order to up your chances of getting in.
I wrote a great essay and I had done many things during high school that were service related. I was accepted to many colleges but after touring the campus, this was my top choice.
