If a student has a certain low GPA (2.7), can scoring high on the ACT keep him/her going to a Division 1 school? If so, how high would they have to score to go D1?

Yes. As we discuss in this article about NCAA GPA and SAT/ACT scores, NCAA uses a sliding scale for Division I eligibility. If a student has a 2.7 GPA in his/her core courses, he/she would qualify for Division I with an ACT sum of 61. This means that the student's English, Math, Reading, and Science Scores would all have to add up to 61; if the scores were roughly evenly distributed among the sections, that comes out to a 15/15/15/16, or a composite ACT score of 15.
