Hi, Just signed up for this forum. I am currently a senior in my undergrad, I finish in the Summer 2021. My current cumulative gpa is 3.09 which is very low and for my science courses these are the grades I have made: General Chem 1 & 2: B Biology 1 : B Biology 2: C Orgo 1: C Orgo 2: F(first time), C (2nd time) Physics 1 & 2: A Genetics: B- Microbiology: D, I am going to retake. I am taking Biochemistry 1 this spring 2021 and other upper-division biology courses where I hope to make As in. I would like advice on what I should do to increase my gpa. Should I enroll in a post-bacc program while getting PCE (through volunteering/shadowing or getting a job at an urgent care or hospital) or should retake the classes I received a C or below in, then start prepping to take the GRE and going through the application process. Any advice would be helpful. Thank you.
I am currently about to finish my undergraduate degree (B.S. General Biology). I have 16 more units left and then Im done. I have a 2.969 cGPA and 3.02 sGPA. I recently decided that I want to become a PA and I am realizing that I will need to retake courses to increase my GPA sadly my 0.03 points if I am lucky. I have a lot of research experience, 1 publication pending (second author) and 1 I am currently in the process of writing (1st author). I am 23 years old and have over 5,000 hours of research experience (medical chemistry and regenerative medicine). Sadly, I know that this probably does not account for much when applying to PA school. I still need to work on my healthcare experience and in the mean time I know that I should probably work on the grades 1st. So normally when you retake courses in your undergrad, the letter grade is replaced therefore helping your GPA. However I have been told that once you graduate and decide to retake courses, the letter grade is not replaced and instead added onto your GPA. Is this true? Please help, I really want to get into a PA program and I want to know the truth about my situation.
