I've lost this battle but maybe not the war

As you know I have been pursuing my MBA, today I was academically disqualified from the program as my GPA has not achieved the required 3.0 (it is 2.96) :( I will have to wait 6 months to be able to reapply and appeal :( I know that most people think I had taken on too much, but I had hoped that I could make it work :( Today I feel defeated . . .

Over the last week or so I have been looking into my options for a business and there are a few classes I will need to take but I think I may have a good idea. My 9-5 began layoffs in my absence and figuring out what I maybe able to do has become very necessary. I had wondered when I'd find the time to take the classes, I guess my dance card just opened up. I may win this war yet :)

I wish you a 'good luck'. I have been following your blog for a long time, and am amazed @all you accomplish with your family, work & school. You will not lose the war, I am sure of it. GOD BLESS!

Thanks ladies. I plan to reapply after the 6 months and finish the last 2 classes I need to graduate. They will likely make me take the 3 I was exempt from but that can only help to bring my GPA up at this point. I am disappointed but I should have dropped the class before this when I went to the hospital instead of listening to my advisors. Live and learn :(

I am sad to hear about the postponement. I am trying to apply for student aid to finish my degree. *sighs* We shall wait together!
