We're all going through the same journey so I figured it can't hurt to ask for some advice.
I am almost 27 and decided to go back to school to finish what I started. Despite the many careers I've thought off it always has come back to nursing so I am going to do it this time. Obviously, with the age difference I'm taking college much more serious with more focus then before BUT I have a lot
of fixing to do.
I signed up for college when I finished HS because it was the right thing to do... I had NO focus and ended up leaving and working full time for the next 7 years. I left school with a 1.36 GPA.
Horrible, I know but I promise I am by no means stupid...I just seriously didn't apply myself and eventually stopped going.
The problem is I now have to work my ...ahhhemm...off to get it fixed. I've tried multiple GPA calculators to get an idea of what I can realistically get and I am a bit disappointed. The requirement to get in is 2.5 but realistically people who get in have 3.5 and higher.
I know I can get A's NOW but how can I fix it when I only have a couple of classes to do...I have a glimmer of hope and was told by a counselor that for example if I retake ENC1101 and get an A my D in the past will be removed? Is this true?
What do you guys know about this and what advice can you give me. I plan to put my all into every class even if it takes longer but if I could retake classes that I previously got a F in *because I didn't go enough* then will those grades be removed?
