I was in a master’s program. I completed one year completed, but got expelled due to my GPA dropping below what was needed. I was put on probation and was given one semester to pull up my average by getting an A in all three classes I was taking, but I only got an A in two of them.

I have the option to apply for re-admittance and will do so, but just in case I want to apply to other programs, perhaps as a transfer. If needed, I’d apply fresh and start over.

In my new applications, should I explain my situation (life changes, job loss), or would it be better to not dwell too much on it?

    Generally if you are willing to pay for your degree it is exceedingly possible to find a school willing to accept your money.

  • Vote to close as "unclear what you're asking". Please respond to @Nat's comment. You completed one year. What was your GPA of your first semester?

    @Nat - I think I understood what OP was asking and have edited the question to make it clearer. Also, I tried to focus the question. Jan 17, 2018 at 10:49
