My freshman year I struggled really bad with depression, Causing my GPA to end in a 2.4. This year I have improved a lot, Ending the first quarter with a 3.6 GPA. I am graduating high school a year early, I want to go into nursing. Do I have a chance still?
Of course you have a chance! It would be one thing if you didn't raise your GPA, but a jump from 2.4 to 3.6 is incredible and shows your resilience and persistence (which are both necessary traits for nurses). Definitely explain on your application, but I think it's a point in your favor that you went through a challenge and came out stronger.Good luck!
Yes! Your improvement in GPA demonstrates resilience and dedication, which are valuable qualities. When applying to nursing programs, many applications have a section where you can provide additional information or context about your academic journey. Use this space to explain the challenges you faced during your freshman year and highlighting the significant improvement you've made since then. Good luck with your application!
