I'll be frank here. I was not a good college student at all. I was undisciplined, lazy, and didn't have a very good sense of how important it really was. I've moved all over the country in the last 5 years for various reasons, taken classes at several community colleges in a desperate attempt to raise a GPA so maybe I can get back into a university and get a Bachelor's. My transcripts are a confusing mess and they've been building for years. I'm almost 28 now (although I haven't been taking classes the whole time) and am tired of not having a degree. Worse off is that I can't really get into any universities because of my low GPA and it would be insanely easier, and worth the financial hit, to just start over and apply as a freshman although I don't think that's allowed by any schools. Coming out of high school I was able to get into the schools I applied to because I met freshman admission requirements, but of course because of a low GPA I won't meet transfer requirements now. Obviously I wish I could go back in time and handle things better knowing what I know now, but I'm just wondering if there's any way to improve my situation that is NOT taking a bunch of community college classes while adding to my confusing stack of transcripts.
