    So I graduated with a 3.16 a year ago (biology)

    I went to a community college then transferred after 50 credits to a local university. 133 credits total. I'm confused as to what is the best option at the moment given these grades.

    Gen Bio 1-c
    Gen Bio 2-c
    Gen Chem 1-c
    Orgo 2 lecture-c
    phys 1 Lec-c

    I have a strong upward trend in my gpa, which includes upper level chemistry courses. I'm thinking about retaking these courses along with adding new science courses in the mix.

    given the amount of credits i have, should I retake these courses or just take new classes? I feel it is most fruitful to retake to bounce the gpa up to 3.45, but I'm not sure how adcom will view this ( I will be retaking these courses at a cc btw if that matters)

    Personally, I'd retake the chemistry and physics courses first. Then retake the bios if time permits.

    I would for sure, if you make all A's your gpa would be right around the average 3.4..
