    I'm an AS200 and I was put on academic probation my first semester due to horrible grades (I flunked most of my classes). I retook the classes and I'm predicting my GPA to be around 3.4-3.5.

    My question is how that probation on my record would affect my chances of an EA. I'm in honor guard and my PFA score is a 95. I'm a Computer Science major. I raised my GPA up from, I believe, a 1.00, but that probation is still on my record. I'm not saying I would have had a good chance even without the probation (I heard less than 20% in my Det get an EA), but does it completely eliminate my chances of getting one?

    Stay positive and keep working hard, but when submitting your package for an Enrollment Allocation all of your credits (including your flunked classes) will be part of the package. Do you know your cumulative GPA? I believe you need at least a cumulative of 2.5 (maybe 2.0 not 100% someone will have to confirm) before they can even submit your package.

    My university (I'm a crosstown) replaces old grades with the new grades. So, not including those flunked classes, I'll have a 3.4 - 3.5.

    Including the flunked classes, I should have a 2.7 - 2.8.

    The school may not count the failed classes but the AF will count them all, keep working to raise your GPA the rest of this semester and next.

    Jcleppe is correct AFROTC will count all of the grades. Sit down with your CoC and find out if he is going to support you for SFT. As others have said just keep studying and improving your grades.
