Ok, so here's my story... I started college about 8 years ago with plans of pursuing a career in medicine. Right after I began school my wife was killed in a car accident, leaving me to raise our newborn daughter by myself. I struggled through undergraduate school and finally graduated in 2006 with a poor GPA of 2.1 I was working full-time, going to school full-time, and raising our daughter alone. School was not always my top priority as you can tell by my GPA. Anyway, I finally met someone else and 2 years ago I started working on a Master's degree in Education. I also began taking my medical pre-requisites again. I am about to finish graduate school now with a 4.0. Needless to say being older (I'm 29 now) has proven to help when it comes to handling multiple responsibilities. As a graduate student I also served as the President of a student organization, volunteered in the community, and shadowed a doctor. I have also worked in a hospital in the past. My question is... will my extremely poor undergraduate GPA hurt me taking into consideration all that I have accomplished as a graduate student? Any ideas?
