Soc stopped going and never formally withdrew resulting in an F (I know stupid me). Fastforward to 2005; got outta the Navy and moved to CT and started taking pre nursing classes at a local CC. All A's thus far (3.97 GPA w/ 24credits).
My wife,whos active duty, is transfering back to Va. So I called and spoke with a counselor at Tidewater. She informed me that they would not transfer in my grades from my current community college; just the credits. My GPA would only be based on what I took/take at Tidewater. That blows my mind. It drops me from being competitive to struggling to meet the minimum reqs. I have a starting GPA of ~1.xx something.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
