Hey guys! So I originally had planned to apply this cycle. I was beginning to do so with low confidence in my stats. With a lot of emotional power, I decided to be smarter and take a year off and apply for the next cycle. I was wondering what you guys suggest I do with my time off before I apply next year to increase my chances of getting in. Here are some of my plans for the next year and some of my stats: Stats Cumulative GPA: 3.418 Exercise Science GPA: 3.558 C's in Anatomy, Phys, Physics 2, Bio 1 A's and B's in everything (more B's than A's) 500+ hours as an outpatient physical therapy aide Continue working at a LTAC hospital Plans Retake Anatomy, Physiology, Physics 2, and Biology 1 - I received C's in all of the classes. Anatomy and Phys will be retaken at a 4-year institution I would retake a few more classes that I got B's in but I heard it doesn't look good if you have to retake so many classes Study and take the GRE Probably get a few more observation hours at different settings I'm from VA, and my ultimate dream would be to get into VCU, but I'm not sure of its likelihood. I'll probably apply to the main VA schools, GW, and a few more schools out of state. To be honest, I'd just love to get into school as soon as possible haha. Sorry, this post was super long! I'd appreciate any input! I've emailed various programs about it but they are very vague in their suggestions. Thanks!
