Pre-Health (Field Undecided)
Hi I'm currently enrolled in a Respiratory Therapy program at a local CC. I had a couple of questions on what would be the best path to medical school. I recently just finished talking to the pre-med advisor at the university i initially attended to discuss different paths for med school and what my chances because of my lack of focus in the first years of college.

First University GPA: 1.99
CC (current): 2.7 (Aiming for a 3.5 recently stopped working starting getting all A's)

My question is since my GPA is so low would it be more wise to transfer to a different university for a better university GPA? Or should attend the initial university i started at? After speaking to the counselor she told me in BEST case scenario i would get a 3.48 (thats with all A's and a couple courses retaken for the better grade.) I am aware that med schools receive all transcripts. So I'm a little lost in the best to what would be better.

Thank You!

You could save yourself the future hassle by just returning to your original university. This way you still only have 2 transcripts.
