Hi, this GPA stuff really is crazy the older you get. the more classes you have the less your 4.0 matters. If the AP I and II and Micro don't count after 5 years, why does ever class you ever took count in yur GPA? not fair and more importantly, not an accurate representaion of what kind of student you are NOW.
I was wondering if anyone has ever tried to have an F changed to a W?
I have a previous A.A.S. degree and after I got the degree I took a few extra advanced classes. The next semester I thought it would be fun to take photography. Well it was much more advanced than I realized so I stopped going and bottom line is that I didn't withdraw correctly. that was in 2002.
I didn't realize until this year when I got my transcript to apply to nursing school that I had gotten an F in that class which dropped my GPA from 3.83 to 3.66 - just sickening. I have all A's the last 4 pre-req classes but still barely not even back to a 3.7. I figured out it would take 21 staight A's to regain my 3.83! someone up there is laughing!
anyway, i don't think it would effecy my admission, becasue they can see what it is, but I found out that I may have a chance at a scholarship
(worth a lot of money) if I have 3.7 or certainly 3.8 and want to see if anyone thinks I have ANY chance of the school helping me by replacing that F with a W, especially since I graduated with highest honors from their school and this was obviously a mistake.
I would take the class over to replace the grade, but there is no time before the application deadline.
