I don't want to go into great detail on here. I am beating myself up enough. Would rather not be told by y'all that I screwed up too. I just need to talk to someone that had a low GPA and pulled it up. I have a lot of questions and could use some advice before I give up. I have cried all the tears I have. I just need advice. Please PM me and I can explain more of what has happened.

Other people that have had low GPA's and pulled them up will not be able to help you. Everyone's circumstance is different. What will help you is to evaluate why your GPA is low, what caused you to do poorly in the classes, and determine what you can do differently in order to fix the problem. A low GPA is fixable, by determining where you went wrong the first time and then re-taking the class and not making those same mistakes again.

I know where I went wrong. My divorce caused me to get F's in all the classes. I have retook my classes and worked my butt off but GPA is barely moving up. I was told the more credits you have the harder it is to fix GPA. I am debating starting over and letting the past grades be the past grades and start fresh.

I was told the more credits you have the harder it is to fix GPA. I am debating starting over and letting the past grades be the past grades and start fresh.

And this may be the best option for you, if you have a lot of credits and many of them are bad and/or below passing. I did it. I went to a large university right out of highshool years ago, and was young and immature. I left with a GPA that was in the 1.0 range. Years later, I'm almost 30 and no longer than immature teenager. I enrolled into a local community college this year for their ADN program. Their requirements for admission are only your pre-req GPA for the classes you take there for admission, and your HESI score. Leaving my past behind and starting fresh was the best option, and I currently have a very high GPA since starting over, and I'll be applying for my program in just a few weeks for fall admission.

So, with that said, I agree that if re-taking the classes isn't helping your GPA (which happens once you get so many credits), and your GPA is not high enough to get into a program, starting over at a reputable community college that looks at just pre-req GPA for their required classes and going for your ADN sounds like a very good option to consider.

When I first went back to school many years ago I did awful. I didn't take it seriously, I was out partying at night and I failed all of my classes. I went back a few years later retook the classes I failed and got straight A's. Whatever the problem is, figure out how to fix it and try again. Nobody is perfect and every day is another opportunity to try again. Good Luck.

I didn't have a really bad GPA, but it was not good enough for nursing. My current cum. GPA is a 3.1 and that will never get me into any BSN program near me because of how competitive they are, which is a bit depressing. So I am going to go the ADN route where only my prereqs count. Only 9 classes are taken into consideration with my ADN admissions, which really helps a lot. My prereq GPA is a 3.6 with the 5 classes that count. Unfortunately, I have to wait a year before I start school again because of just moving to a different state and not being able to afford the out of state tuition so I will just drive myself crazy with thinking about going back to school in the meantime haha. Look at ADN programs in your area and only retake the classes you want to bring up for that because it is so much easier than taking all those other courses again just because you didn't give it your all.
