I am currently applying to the Master of Science in Human Services (General Human Services Specialization) program of Capella University. But my chances of being accepted have been trimmed down because my undergraduate degree Grade Point Average (GPA) was so low, only 2.0. With this regard, I would like to request your good office to please kindly consider my case.
My undergraduate GPA was so low because of very adverse events. I was having a lot of family problems back then. My child’s mother was on drugs, specifically crack Cocaine, and she was maltreating our child. I decided to take legal actions, so I filed a child abuse case against her in court. I fought to get legal rights to our child. I was under a lot of mental stress, and I still had to work two full time jobs to financially support my studies and to make ends meet for me and my family.
Please understand that I need to get a master’s degree to make life better for my child and me. After I graduate, I plan to work with children with problems and handle child abuse cases. I want to help children who suffer what my child had suffered, and parents who undergo what I have undergone. I want to be of social service to my fellowmen, especially those in need. Moreover, I have taken graduate classes at Troy University, and my GPA there was 2.8. So I believe I would do very well in Capella University; I pledge I would do very well. I also believe that Capella University would not deny me admission to high value master’s degree to make the most of my potentials.
