Hello everyone. If you please read and PLEASE respond to this, I PROMISE you I will never bug you again with such a trite subject. Promise. First and foremost I feel the need to apologize for a subject line (and content, for that matter) that you veterans are probably tired of seeing. Before you tell me to read another thread please read this. I am a 21 year old undergrad student at UCONN. I am technically in my 3rd semester right now. I know, I'm an old sophomore. There is a reason for this. I was always a hyper kid, wanting to do everything but NEVER finish anything. Jack of all trades, master of none, as the old adage goes. At the end of high school I found it painfully impossible to concentrate, but in 99 I began college. I saw a number of professionals and they determined I was suffering from ADHD and depression. Now before I get flamed for claiming to be inflicted by two rather ambigiously defined ailments, please hear me out. The diagnosis was true. After trying a multitude of medications (over a few years...) I found one that worked for me, and continues to. To add to the mental problems I had a full time retail management job to help pay for full time school and the car that had to take me to my COMMUTER branch of UCONN. To add to the pile, I recieved mediocre grades my first semester and withdrew my second semester. This cycle continued... I withdrew for two spring semesters and recieved below-par grades in the others. I have a GPA of 1.96 right now with a very erratic past faithfully recorded on my transcript. Now the good-ish news. I am doing really well, living on campus finally, became an EMT, my grades are A's this semester and I plan to retake and FULLY replace (as per my school's policy) the W's and 2 F's of my horrible past. This winter I am taking a class to obtain the next level EMT cert while working at the hospital as an ER tech (job waiting for me) and this summer I am signed up to go to India as a volunteer to learn about their medical processes and teach English. Now I ask you, if I bring up my grades to about a 3.4, which I can and WILL damnit by my senior year, MCATs aside how much do you think my transcript will hurt me? Do I go for the gusto or give it up? I REALLY want to do it but I want to know from you all what you think about my chances with such an erratic and lackluster transcript for 2 years. If you knowledgable people think I have a real chance, you'll give me the support I could not thank you enough for. Thank you in advance for your help.
