Good afternoon everyone,
Hope everyone is doing well. I’ve been on here for about a month or so, just reading threads and haven’t come across an answer I’ve been searching for, so figured I’d just ask myself.
Quick back story; started college 12 years, basically did poorly or failed all my classes that first year, wasn’t into school at the time. Joined the army, been active duty ever since.
When I left that school 12 years ago, I had a 1.1 gpa. Fast forward, at my current school I have a 3.4 cGPA and a 3.2 sGPA. I was recently made aware that I have to submit all grades when applying, and the 10 yr rule only applies in Texas. That would bring my cGPA down to a 2.5, but my sGPA would stay the same since I never took science class at the first school.
I have 5 classes left until I’m done with my degree, and even if I got all A’s, it would only bring my cGPA to a 2.7 and my sGPA 3.5(for all my math nazis, yes I’ve done the math correctly, they are accurate to the tenth) but from the threads I’ve read I’m seeing that some schools filter out applications below a cGPA of 3.0 .
My question. Does it make sense to get another bachelors to raise my overall GPA, since the focus isn’t with my science pre-reqs? Or does a special masters program and post-baccs need to be what I’m looking at?
Thanks to anyone that can help!
