    I am currently in my senior year of biology, undergraduate studies and due to a few unforeseen circumstances in my first two years, my undergraduate GPA is completely shot.
    Currently: 2.7 GPA (roughly)

    My passion has been health sciences since I was young, of course then, I was adamant on being a doctor. I know that it’s near impossible to reach that goal – and I’m not trying to be pessimistic. I work 30-40 hours a week (to pay tuition), in a patient care facility. I know what I want to do, and I know I’m not stupid. I just made a few stupid mistakes and I’m paying the price for it now. My GPA in my last year of university was excellent. With that being said, what are my options now?

    I don’t if i should:
    1)retake courses at my current university
    2)apply for a post-bac program
    3)re-do just the prerequisites needed, at another institution, and use solely these marks to apply elsewhere (I know some educational institutions will accept based on just the necessary prereqs)

    I apologize for being long-winded with the post, but any help would be very appreciated. Thank you.
