I’m sure this has been asked many times before and I know the only people who can give a solid answer are the ones who decide to accept/reject your application but thought I’d get some feedback from you all anyways.
I have a poor undergrad GPA and I’ve beaten myself over it for years and continue to because I regret listening to my parents when they said college was useless and a waste of time so it shouldn’t be a priority. I started taking basic introductory science classes just to test the waters since I was always scared of not being able to do well in science courses. I currently have a 3.9 with those classes so I’ve proven to myself I am capable.
Assuming I do well in a post bacc program (let’s say 3.8-4.0), my cumulative GPA will only be a 3.0. I need to be realistic with my chances of being accepted. Do I continue or just give up at this point because my cgpa would be low even though my science GPA would likely be very high. I’m a 30 yr old career changer feeling overwhelmed because I don’t want to have done all this for nothing at the end of the day.
Call me crazy but I really don’t believe the “we view the application hostically” spiel. It could just be my anxiety believing that.
