    Hi, I have a 3.29oGPA and 3.29 BCP, and a 3.034 sGPA. Thats what it most likely is going to be because my semester isn't too bad.

    With a 22 DAT, 180 hours shadowing/ Volunteering, and lots of leadership and strong letters of Rec.

    Im applying early June, and I'm just nervous my GPA is too low.

    Im applying to 19 schools, mostly private and very broadly but I'm scared my GPA is just gonna throw my application out... Should i post my school list?

    I'd really appreciate any help!! Thank you!

      What are the rest of your DAT section scores? School list would help along with residency

          So go with what i got pretty much and pray for the best? I feel like i picked schools that i should have a chance at.. and other than my gpa i think the rest of my application is super well rounded?
          If you feel like your application is uber well rounded, your DAT will offset your GPA a tad bit.
          I do know that most schools screen your application for academic values first because once you get an interview, a lot of them mention that "you have the grades to get in", now they are just trying to figure out your personality and see if you fit into their program.
          None of the interviews I've been in asked about grades.
