Before I go into detail about my dilemma and myself, I would first like to say that all I want is a realistic response. I don't need sugar coating . Be as brutally honest as possible, PLEASE. I just want to know if I will have a realistic chance at making it into a nursing school.
- 19 yr.
- Graduated Highschool : 2011
- Went to Saint Mary's College of CA (Freshman): 2011-2012
- GPA from SMC: 1:375
- Currently at DVC: 2012- ~
- GPA from DVC: IN PROGRESS
- I guess I should do some background on how I got my GPA. Well, I basically flunked out of my freshman year of college due to immaturity to recognize I needed help and b/c of a mental illness.
- I did average my Freshman Fall Semester. I withdrew from my Chemistry class. I got a C+ in my English course. I got a A- in Seminar class. I got a C in my Calculus 13 class.
- In Spring (2012), I failed all my courses.
- If you ask how and why? I basically just mentally gave up and was too immature/unmotivated(symptom of illness).
- Saint Mary's kicked me out. I repealed the college decision with a medical excuse, but got denied.
- I applied to a C.C. and now I am currently here.
- I have my illness under control and have matured ALOT since flunking out.
- Currently, I am getting an A in Psych 101, B Statistics, A in Nutrition, and B History while working part time.
- Next Semester, I am taking Anatomy, Developmental Psych, and Chemistry 108.
- Other Info: I have volunteer work from various places. I have volunteered at a hospital during highschool.
My school counselors for my community college keep telling me I need good grades like a 3.75 and higher. But what they won't answer is if I even have a shot at nursing school with my current gap which is 1.375. I know this is a really bad GPA. I do understand that it is VERY competitive getting into nursing school. Should I just cut my loses and choose another career path?
