Would you repeat some classes just to have a higher GPA?

    I am on a waiting list for a LPN-BSN program and I am far down on the waiting list. The suggestion was made that I repeat some of my classes to have a more competitive GPA like the other applicants? Would you repeat classes? I already have repeated A/P I and II, can CLEP out of Human Growth and Dev, due to going to a vocational school where Community colleges and universities would not accept my credits due to the accreditation level - don't get me started on that one. Anyway would you repeat classes?

    If it meant being more likely to get into the program. May as well use your time waiting to improve your chances! I repeated several classes and got in last July. Now I'm graduating in 2 days and I don't regret the extra classes one bit!

    Before you repeat a class, be sure to check on what the standard operating procedures are, in the program you are applying to. Some programs only allow you to repeat 1 or 2 classes. Also, some programs say that you may be less competitive if you have had to repeat courses.
