    My GPA is trash. What to do now?

    Not sure what I have been dismissive of. I'm open to all options. Thanks for the advice.

    My GPA is trash. What to do now?

    Many of the classes are classes that I just never finished. English, History, etc. So they would go towards my core classes. I did eventually retake them and pass them. I do have 2 computer classes with an F but they have nothing to do with my degree. And I didn't actually fail any of them. They were strictly do to me be an idiot and dropping out without withdrawing. And this is what I want and I'll do whatever I have to do. I'm working my tail off, doing what I should have done years ago. I hope I can get this corrected. I will try and speak with an adviser on Monday. I was just looking for any outside advice / piece of mind to get me through the weekend. Thanks a bunch for all the replies folks. I really appreciate it.

    My GPA is trash. What to do now?

    I'm in Georgia. I was just talking to a friend about it. I was under the assumption that they would take my GPA from all 4 school, add them together then divide by 4, giving my overall GPA. That would be bad because it wouldn't allow me to raise my GPA high enough at my current institution. I'm already at 3.86 and a 4.0 wouldn't get me high enough. He said they would take all of my attempted classes with a formula including the grade for each class, credits hours attempted. So that would actually allow my GPA to rise steadily over the next year. Is this correct?

    I'm assuming I should take some classes over at the previous school that has the terrible GPA? As of right now, I will be a Sophomore at the end of this year but my GPA at my current school can only go so high. If I finished with a 4.0 it still wouldn't get me to where I need to be GPA wise. Also, will they just take the GPA from each school and get the average GPA like that? I have some computer classes that contributed to that GPA but have nothing to do with my degree. Would they still include those? I would imagine it's different from school to school. Sorry for so many questions, I'm just really worried. Either way, I WILL get in to nursing school. Even if I'm 50 before I do. It's all I have really ever wanted to do. Life just took me down a different road to get here.

    What about a 2 year RN degree? Would that be better than the LPN? Provided I could get in. And I'm not sure about the LPN GPA. I do know that the Rad Tech program is 2.5 at the school I want to attend.
  7. So, after many years of being in school, then dropping out due to personal reasons, I'm now back in school and taking it very serious. It's been a long hard road in my adult years and I just haven't been able to stick my a dream of being a nurse. Until now. The problem is my GPA at a previous school. I had to drop out 3 different times, and didn't do it the proper way. So now I have a bunch of Fs since I wasn't smart enough to withdraw. My collective GPA is 2.5 but my GPA at my current school is 3.86. I need a minimum of 2.8 to even be considered for nursing school in my area. I'm lost at what I should do. I'm really working hard now, putting in 19 hour days with full-time work and school 5 days a week. Making As, on the Honor Council, but it looks like it won't be enough. Feels like I will always be punished for the transgression of my youth. I'm almost 43 now and I don't want to be going to school for nothing. There isn't ANYTHING I would rather do than be a nurse. Please help with any advice. TIA.
