Repairing a GPA before reapplying to college?
I'm trying to lend a hand to a friend who's trying to put her life back together after going through some issues, and one of those is finally feeling ready to go back to college. However, she ended up flunking out of school the first time, and is trying to figure if there's anyway she can repair her GPA from that time, or otherwise prove that she's turned things around and would be a good candidate for applying school and financial aid.
Is there anyway to go about rebuilding an academic standing (community college classes?) so that previous failure doesn't weigh as heavily?
