cGPA ~ 3.0 /4.0
Conventions of language 3.0
Problem solving 2.5
I've got A's in my Organic & Inorganic Chemistry classes, and considerable volunteering in a hospital.

It probably wouldn't hurt to apply; however, that composite and GPA are below the usual average of what has been accepted in the past. If you have solid extracurriculars, personal essay skills, good references, and relevant pharmacy experience then it might be enough to get an interview. But that's just my two cents.
