I graduated high school in 1999 and entered college that same year. I struggled a great deal and ended up with a 2.3 overall gpa, mainly because I lacked direction and suffered from depression. I attended 3 different schools until I called it quits in 2003. I started school again (Depaul U) last summer and have already taken 7 courses and have a 3.9 GPA (All A's and 1 A-). How much will my past affect my chances at getting into a good graduate school? I am currently studying for the GRE and I'm sure I'll do pretty well. The thing is I only have about 2 or maybe 3 trimesters left. Is that enough to prove to the universities that I'm capable? I plan on obtaining a masters in Sociology. In terms of work experience, I practiced real estate in the state of New York for about 4 years before I called it quits at the end of 2008.
