Ok, what do you think of my situation? I posted this in another thread but that was for last year. Maybe this one is more appropriate. I've been taking courses part time the last 3 years at HCC, the same courses for the BHSN program. Have all but Micro, Pub. Speaking, and Child Psych left (taking Micro & P.S. this semester, Child Psych in the spring). I got A's in both A&P 1+2, A's or A-'s in other courses. Got a 91 on the TEAS. Went to school 20 years ago for a science but did not graduate.
Here's my situation: in 2006 I divorced. Badly. Started dating a girl in 2007. Was taking 3 courses: Micro, Pub. Speaking, and Child Psych (while working full time on the night shift). She dumped me w/out warning. There were 2 or 3 other family issues at that same time, all while I was working nights, which makes everything twice as sucky. I do the tailspin thing for a month (in retrospect, I wasn't really ready to date). I was still paying off old student loans, and didn't withdraw because I wanted them to remain in deferment. Thing was, I bombed all 3 courses royally.
Now my 3.8 or 3.9 is a 2.7... I know that when you repeat classes that the higher of two grades will be used for computing the GPA. I'm counting on A's for the 3 courses (well, maybe a B in Micro). I'll be able to bring the GPA back up to 3.8 or 3.9. Question is, how do you think this will look on a transcript? I am planning on applying this Jan for 2011, hoping for A's in 2/3 of the courses by the time they decide(the Child Psy. will have to wait for the Spring).
