I started college full time when I graduated from high school in 2010. My GPA is currently 3.57 overall (I have no clue what my cumulative GPA is or how to figure that up) The current school I am at declined my admission b/c my GPA was not high enough. Then I went and took the TEAS V exam. not really that hard except the science part it was all about earth science that section KILLED me. I got an overall score of 68% not that great but higher than the average. I did really well on the math, reading, and English part. Anyways back to my original point! I am taking Chemistry this semester, as well as Spanish, a lifespan course and a psychology course. the other school I am applying to requires Spanish, Chemistry, and Lifespan. So far I have an A- in Chemistry we've only had 1 test so far. I have an A- in Spanish , and an A in Lifespan. I feel like no matter how hard I try it is never good enough. I use to think a 3.57 GPA was great now I am starting to think 3.8 is great 3.57 is a failure. I am getting really bummed out. Any of you all have any tips to help boost my GPA out a little? If I do not get accepted this time (I should know in June) I am going to take the TEAS V over.
I have a B in A&P 1&2 , a B- in microbiology , and an A- in prob & stats. (did I mention I really HATE minuses next to grades!! I was 4 points from a B in micro and seriously 2 point from an A in prob and stats. the prob and stats one really ticked me off! I had a 97 before the final in prob & stats and got a 86 on the final I needed an 88. GRR anyways
If anyone has any ideas on how to help me or any schools to apply for I would greatly appreciate the thought. I want a 4year school so I can get my BSN work for a few years then go back to school and try for Nurse anesthetist program (as that is what i really want to do)
I live in the Tennessee Area. My school is ETSU (east Tennessee state university), the school I really want into is King College as they have smaller classes and I think that will work to my advantage.

- Feb 29, '12 by SopranoKrisDoes your school have an online student portal? You should be able to see your cumulative GPA by viewing your transcripts online. It will be at the bottom of your transcript. If you don't have an online transcript option, then you can request an unofficial transcript (paper copy) or you can simply make an appointment with an academic advisor to determine your current GPA.
Your high school courses are not a part of your GPA, only your college courses (even though you took them concurrently).
- Feb 29, '12 by grpmanI think you need to find out exactly what the schools you want to get into require for entrance. Some schools weigh the sciences heavy and will look past a lower gpa in other areas. Where I go, your overall gpa is weighed, your prereq sciences (micro, a and p 1-2) is weighed, and then your entrance test is weighed with the emphasis on the sciences. But what really counts is knowing how each school "you" want to get into ranks their students. Advice without knowing that would just be guessing.
