Im 135 pounds and was wondering if this was enough to gain weight?
Big bowl of froot loops in the morning + fruits = 400 calories
Protein bar/Snacks during/between classes = 200 extra calories
Lunch after classes(2 quarter pound beef burgers with tomatoes and salad + 230 calorie bag of barbecue chips + 200 calories in soda/powerade) = 1200 calories
Another snack = 200 calories
Dinner(sandwiches + milk) = 500 calories

Can 2500 calories make me gain a pound a week?

If your metabolism and workout burn 2,000 calories a day, then yes, 2,500 would get you about a pound a week...... It's about surplus, not a start number....."Democracy is when 2 wolves and a lamb vote for what to put on the dinner table; Liberty is when the lamb is well-armed."
The natural tendency is for rights to be whittled away bit-by-bit. Rights are never restored bit-by-bit. Once lost, they are gone until the next revolution.

Firstly, giving us your food plan with the specific names of each food you eat doesn't really matter. It'd be much more helpful if you post how many calories you eat per day (which you've done), as well as how many grams of protein, carbohydrates and fats you eat as well. That's just a tip for the future though.
Is 2,500kcal enough for you to gain a pound a week? Only time will tell I'm afraid. Monitor your weight (weigh yourself roughly at the same time each day for accurate measurements) and see how much the scale shifts each week. If there's no/little change, up your calories slightly. If you're gaining weight too fast, scale back on your calories.c0ntender's training log: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=143937031
