Hypothetically you could go to the local community college for an associates in physics.
Then transfer to a 4 year school.. Then you would have a super high GPA.
So if you want a super high gpa. First go to a community college for all undergraduate work, and then transfer at the last minute to a 4 years school.
To further boost your gpa, choose a community college in an urban area , where the teachers are easier. Then transfer to an easy 4 year college.

A low GPA can be offset by great GRE scores/good letters of recommendation from your professors, at least that's what I was told. This will surely vary from institution to institution, however.
