When I first started off my very first semester a million zillion years ago I went to USD and had a car accident the night before finals. I was a passenger in the car. I ended up with a 1.69 GPA
I went back for another year and barely got my GPA to a 2.0. Fast forward 10 years.... went back to USD got my GPA to a 2.3
I didn't want to be in school anymore. I felt like I was wasting my time and money. I had previously worked in healthcare and decided I wasn't happy with my 125k/yr job that had me chained to a desk and electronic devices. I had previously worked in healthcare and decided I would go back to something similar... fast forward again... I fell back in love with healthcare and wanted to go back for nursing.... who knew EVERYONE had decided the same. 10 yrs before hospitals were PAYING people to go to school.... at this point the cruel struggle and race was one for everyone. My GPA was not even at the MIN for applying to community colleges so I went to National figuring it was my best bet. I made sure I got straight A's in my sciences! Even with that I STILL wasn't at a cumm of 2.75 ... freaking frack....
So I went to my closest community college and took transfer units for transfer to a state school. My plan was to get a Bach then do a 2nd degree program. To my surprise I had gotten A's in everything which brought up my cum GPA to a 2.97!! The BSN programs in my area just look at the last 60 which I had 3.7!
I was juzt accepted into the
Cal State San Marcos Gen program!
SO .... you can raise your GPA. I took community college online courses.... some 2 at a time to bring it up. Or you can just finish your current program and do an ABSN 2nd degree program. It is possible and there is hope!
I know you wanted to hear if you should start over.... but if your sciences are good why would you? Those evil grades of mine (btw) were originally from 1994..... YUP almost 20 years ago
!!!! So no they don't go away BUT your sciences have a shelf life at most schools. Good luck! You can do this ! Just do anything you can for points!
