    Spondee got a reaction from amf18 in Dude I need help   
    Every school I applied to (15, all over the country) took my postbacc as part of my GPA, and I wasn't degree seeking. If you want a second bachelors, and you need that much of a boost, go for it, but most schools just look at last 60 credits, and CSD GPA, which OF COURSE includes postbacc. You can do it. Take the classes, work hard, apply smart.

    Woah, it'll be okay. I had a few Cs, and a D. And a lot of Bs. YES. Don't let the 4.0s scare you. Its totally possible.

    Hey! I got in with just slightly higher stats, so I'll level with you. It's going to be harder for you than it is for most people. Accept that, agree to work hard. You need to apply all over the country, and not to programs like Vanderbilt that just clearly aren't going to happen. Use Edfind, but also research schools, and apply to schools that fit your strengths. If you can, apply to schools that hold interviews. Work your butt off on the GRE, because a school needs numbers that are good in order to justify looking at the rest of your app closely. Then, the rest of your app needs to be perfect. Write your SOP, then have three people smarter than you edit it. Don't give up, it's possible, it's just hard.

    You need to know the information in order to get through grad school. Like  @Crimson Wife said, there are extended programs, but there are a lot of downfalls to those. Take a year, do your postbacc. You won't get through grad school if you're going in blind.

    Hey it's gonna be fine. Your stats are good, just apply to places that make sense for what you have to offer, qualitatively. I got in with way less.

    A Skilled Nursing Facility. Rehab center, basically. PSLF is easier in schools because they all qualify as public service, if they're public schools. Few hospitals are public/not for profit.

    Yeah! I got into a few schools, the first year I applied. Just apply really smart, all over the country, and work for a good GRE score. Schools need a number to justify reading the rest of your application.

    Spondee got a reaction from glialstar in Low GPA, but decent GRE Scores???   
    Ayyo. I got into a handful of schools with a low GPA. Even my last 60 weren't great. I'm gonna level with you - your GRE isn't stellar. It's okay, but in my experience, you have to make up for your low GPA in some numerical regard, not just by being a standout human being with lots of experience. I'd retake the GRE, but study your butt off to ensure some numbers go up. This is an easier number to boost than your GPA, for obvious reasons, like your GPA has 100+ credits factoring in. Adding a handful of As won't necessarily help. 
    Another tip, and probably the best advice I got during the process, is apply smart. Don't apply to Iowa or Vanderbilt. Look at edfind, find schools (all over the country. don't get picky) that take lower GPAs, look at places that legitimately share your interests, and apply to a bunch. I applied to 15. I do not think this was too many. 
    Of course, with a low GPA, the rest of your application has to be near perfect. That's okay. Get good recommendations, write your LOR, then have 5 people smarter than you edit it. When you mention your low GPA, do so, but briefly. Then explain that you're on an upward trajectory, and you're even more motivated to kill it. Don't focus on the bad. 
    Good luck, let me know if I can help more.

    Spondee got a reaction from Keim8542 in 2nd BA Low GPA (online programs?)   
    Do you have  to do the 2nd BA? Could you just do a traditional post-bac program? I think I've heard that ENMU doesn't have a GPA requirement for theirs.
