    Hi Guys,
    I got dismissed after my first year of college (GPA was horrendous). I was going through a rough patch (my aunt passed away, and family problems plus more). However, I got myself straight. I currently finished my sophomore year at a two-year community college and am transferring to a four year... I also ended off with a 3.4 GPA with some of the transferred grades from my previous college. I want to know how to go about this in my application. Does this count as institutional action? I also dont have proof of my aunts passing since it was back home. Besides this, I currently am getting my clinical experience and volunteering down. The only thing I haven't done yet is research. Also, I'm a psychology major, and so far I've only taken Bio 1. How should I plan out my timeline? HELP!!! I would really appreciate it.
    It's an academic IA, and different from one if the behavioral IAs.

    You can easily overcome this. Read my post on reinvention for premeds
