I withdrawal from courses, I felt will not do well and took a different course to be sufficient for my Associates of Science degree.

So, I have retaken several courses to improve my GPA and have a better chance of getting accepted to a University so I am able to pursue my nursing degree. I have worked extremely hard to improve my cumulative GPA of 2.70 and science perquisites of 3.03.
