Hello,
So I currently have a 3.01 gpa which is low for physical therapy schools. I am in the process of retaking a class in the summer and will retake another one during fall quarter. If I follow through I can obtain a 3.2 gpa by the time SOME schools see my application, depending on the deadlines I choose. However, this may still not be high enough. I took around 20 community college courses while attending high school and got all A's (tells you how much easier community college is). So I was wondering, would my 3.01 gpa go up once PTCAS calculates my overall gpa since I have to send transcripts and coursework for all college classes? This could be such a blessing.

Ptcas counts the GPA from all classes you have ever taken (including classes you retoke and have disappeared from local institutions) if 3.01 is your local GPA with no retake then you can add all of the community college classes to this

That's not very nice. How would you feel if someone said, "It looks like you can only get an A if your in an environment where your Mom holds your hand"...You need to slow your role young buck.

I was not saying that that was the reason I got an A. In all honesty, it would be ridiculous to say that all schools are the same in difficulty. i was simply saying that the UC is more challenging, not that I have not succeeded in the long run.

And before you start arguing you should learn how to use the word "your"

At this point in time, I think we should all be through with scolding each other or making someone feel stupid. I picked this career knowing that I would be a part of a respectable community of professionals (regardless of age or where we received our education).
