Have you considered retaking any classes at community college? I'm not saying it's easier...but you'll likely find smaller science classes and professors with more time to sit with you and explain things you're not understanding (that's been my experience). An A is an A, no matter where you earn it.
Yeah, I'm considering retaking my Gen Chemistry class at a community college. If that still doesn't get me in, then I'll also retake AP1 or AP2 at the cc as well. BUT! If I take Gen Chem at UTA, I'd have enough overall UTA credits to get another consideration. I don't exactly know how much the considerations matter, though.

Have you actually been denied from every program you've applied to? Or do you just assume you will be denied?
I've applied this semester for Fall '18, so I'm still bashing around being hopeful and worried. I do have a tendency to assume the worst, so I'm trying to weigh all my options and figure out what to do next rather than waiting a whole semester for the outcome. You know?

I go to nursing school at UTA! One of my good friends was accepted with a 3.0 science GPA. I don't know what her overall GPA was but she had 2 considerations. So yes, it is possible to still be accepted here. The spring semester isn't as competitive as the fall, so you may have better luck applying then. She was denied when she applied for Fall entry (and I was waitlisted), but we were both accepted in the Spring. I wouldn't worry about retaking classes until you've received acceptance/rejection. Even then, you may still be accepted in the Spring semester with the same GPA.
Congratulations to you and your friend!
May I ask if you were accepted this past Spring? What were your stats? Also, I know you have to be enrolled when submitting your application, but do you have to be enrolled in classes at UTA the semester that you're waiting to see whether or not you're accepted? Sorry for bombarding you with the questions.
Thank you for your responses!
