I would suggest you go back and retake the prereq courses. And find school that don't require a high overall gpa.
You can't do this in CA. They have this insane system and every time you repeat a class it counts against you. So if you got a C at one school and then an A at another school they take the first grade which is the C and take away points for retaking it. Any Ws count as Fs and the new system makes NO sense.
So for one school I had B, B, B, C, C and a W in the science prereqs. My last 60 units had a GPA of 3.5. I was told with B, B, B, C, C, W and if I had a 4.0 in my last 60 units I would have a 68% in this strange system where the formula is incomprehensible. You need 75% before you can even apply to the program.
Someone please explain to me how 60 units at a 4.0 plus 3 Bs, 2 Cs, and a W equate to 68%.
THIS IS INSANE.
By the way the W was from dropping Micro after 4 weeks when it was my first class after receiving my Bachelors 8 years ago. We had not had any exams and I had no grade in the class but I couldn't get help as there were no tutors so I dropped the class. Why would that count as an F.
I community colleges here have over 500 applicants after they weed out people like me and since the budget cuts schools are accepting 20 students.
Sorry for the rant but I feel like I have just wasted the past 3 years. I am beyond frustrated right now.
