Hello gals/guys, I'm a non-traditional student, a rather old one I might add, hoping to switch careers from Chemical Engineering to Physical Therapy. Before I continue embarking on the many challenges this endeavor will elicit, I'm hoping some of you can clear up a few unawnsered questions! My college GPA maybe borderline acceptable depending on how PTCAS calculates their GPAs . It was above average for engineering, but due to unexpected circumstances I dropped 2 classes. After thoroughly reviewing the PTCAS website, I'm still unable to ascertain whether the dropped course credits are factored into the cumulative GPA calculation. For instance, the information provided on the PTCAS websites states: 1. If credits OR grades are missing, courses are excluded from GPAs. 2. If you withdrew, received an incomplete, or did not earn credit for the course for any reason other than failing, enter the attempted credits. 3. Enter the number of credit hours earned, as posted on your transcript. When calculating the GPA value my transcript does not include credits or a grade for the dropped course, but the course was repeated for credit. According to item number 1 above, a dropped (withdrawn) course would not be included in the final GPA calculation; however, item number 2 then states: to add the attemped credits. How is a dropped course used in the calculation of a GPA? If dropped course credits are factored into the overall GPA it's essentially saying I failed? Any insight or experience would be greatly appreicated! Thanks so much!
