What should I work on for next year...? My GPA isn't the best, and I have a fair amount of W's. I was also in an accident, which forced me to drop out of a school a semester and I had a grade 3 concussion. I also had/have/was diagnosed and hospitalized.. for anorexia. Which affected my school immensly. And I've been trying to work my butt off to get back on track, but it's hard, because of all the medication I'm taking to be able to study like I was, something still isn't right inside of me. I thought I did more then enough explaining in my applications, that maybe they could look passed that. I guess not. I am a horrible standarized test taker. I get nervous, and I can't concentrate, yes i do have and am being treated for ADHD. I paid a fair amount of money for a tutor, and raised my Q by 100 points. I don't know if I could do that again. BTW ~ 1100 As for experiance, I work for a vet who does everything. Cows, horses, goats, chickens, dogs, cats, sheeps. Does that count as well rounded experiance? I've also shown, volunteered and owned my own horses for over 13 years, all that experiance rounded out to about 10,000 hours. Breeding dogs- about 100 hours. I'm making exscuses instead of doing, I honestly don't have time to get more animal experiance, I love my job, and don't want to quit just so I can get some "different" experiance. I am still showing my horses which is my passion, and I can't give that up. I do want to take the GRE again but honestly I'm sure it's not gonna move a great amount. My GPA isn't gonna budge unless I take 47 more credits. I was wondering if re-taking those so-so classes would make a difference? And they are pre-req's. Or should I just skip them and work my butt off in higher level classes? So I guess the point of my post is what do you guys think I should do realistically?
