Hi everyone! This is my first post so be forgiving if I don't have proper forum etiquette lol. So I am extremely nervous to apply this cycle, 2021-2022, because I feel as though my application is not going to be that strong. Here's what I have (keep in mind that I am a junior in college, so I have some more classes to take):
sGPA: right now I have a 3.1, but after this semester I am thinking that it will be around a 3.3
HCEs: over 2,000 as a CNA
I haven't asked for LORs yet, but I am sure that those I ask will highly recommend me (crossing my fingers!).
I don't have as many volunteer hours as I would like, around 50, but I am currently working on them.
I am also involved on campus as an Orientation Leader, I am the President of Nature Club, the treasurer of a History club, and I am also apart of many other clubs, I am just not holding any positions in them. I don't know if this is relevant or not but I also take juijistu classes off campus.
I did have some mishaps happen throughout college, I earned a C- in human A&P, and I had to retake biochemistry. I'm not sure if I should retake human A&P to raise my grade and GPA or let it go. I am going to apply this cycle to programs that do not have a minimum letter grade, but I am honestly so worried that these schools won't even look at my application because of my GPA and my A&P grade.
Any and all recommendations are welcome, thank you!
