    What to do with my GPA? Have so many units it is vertually impossible to change my GPA.

    Grades from classes over ten years ago are haunting me. I really want to get into a PA program, but I have this horrible 2.54 GPA. I am a different person now, I know what I want, but I can't seem to get there because of this GPA thing...Help!

    What is a PA program? As for this 2.54 GPA of yours, can't you take the classes over again, in which you did the worst, at the same college you took them at before, of course. But then again, college costs money doesn't it? At least over here in America it does.

    Does PA stand for public administration? What kinds of classes did the most to get you that 2.54?

    PA stands for Physician's Assistant. As for taking the classes again you are not allowed to repeat classes you get a C in, some of the other classes don't exist anymore and I live over 3000 miles away from the school that I got these grades in. I don't have a bunch of F classes I have three from when I had my daughter and missed my finals cause I was in the hospital. I have a three D's and then a bunch of C's. I need to get my GPA up to at least a 3.0 and I have well over 160 semester units. So can you see my averaging delema taking one class and getting an A barely changes my GPA and all my classes have to be taken at a university level cause I am maxed out on units at the Junior College level.  Hope that helps explain my situation better.

    The quantity of credits you have received for every single class needs to be multiplied through the grade point equivalent. One example is, in case you have obtained an A (we've previously stated it equates to 4.0) in a unique class and that course is awarded with three, then the result can be 12. Then you definitely have got to sum up all the products once you perform the many computations..
