I think being open and honest during your application process is pretty important. They will more than likely ask you what happened. Were you working during this time? Were you busy with extra curriculars? I would really focus on having a really good personal statement that conveys some depth and emotional maturity with why you want to be a PA. It might not hurt to retake Bio 1 and Gen Chem II if you have time during the spring. Depends what else you have going on.
