My GPA in high school (20 yrs ago) was really nothing. I quit in the 11th grade to have my daughter, married, moved to N.C. and went back to finish 11th and 12th grade in 12 weeks of severe studying thru an Adult High School Diploma program.
Then, 7 yrs ago, I was accepted in to the Nursing Program at Ohio State University, ended up pregnant (again), so I dropped out with out telling anyone or officially quitting the program. I just quit going.
And just a little over a year ago, I dropped out of Indiana University East because I was failing Sociology and Algebra. I didn't go and take my finals...
Now, I am in college again. This time I am all grown up, inside and out, and I am a nursing student. I will not quit, because I know I can do it! And my GPA is 3.5.
Now, I know if after the mess I made out of my life for so long can be straightened out... then I have faith that anyone can do it! The key is to keep your chin up, have much faith and tons of prayer. A good support team sure doesn't hurt either!
