Michander125 Posted August 22, 2013 Share Posted August 22, 2013 Hi guys, I am looking for ways to make myself more competitive for possible re- application next year ( I didnt get rejected but if at all interested in why ill put it at the bottom) Anyway my question is whether to retake classes at a comm college or to go through a 1 year public health program at a 4 year university (UAMS). There were a few classes which I did poorly in but none of them are prerequisites. My total gpa took hits from four years of french and business electives which is a real shame for me. So in my shoes would you retake non science classes to boost gpa or take higher level bio classes, or maybe a little of both? I am asking this because after submitting my CASPA my undergrad gpa (3.3 total, 3.65 science) somehow fell to a 2.85 total and a 3.1 science. Although I have excellent letters of rec, personal statement and 5000+ hours as a ER scribe, EMT and phlebotomist, unforutnately I am preparing for the worst as at least one of the schools applied to requires a 3.0 total and the other strongly reccomends it. Not counting myself out this year, just getting prepared in case. Ps. Sorry if I broke any forum rules! First time posting although ive been using this forum for quite some time.
