    I just finished my first semester of one year post bac program and waiting to update my grade. I haven't got any interviews yet and I have feeling that schools are waiting to see my fall grade ( ~ 3.7 - 3.8/ 4.0)

    I am afraid this will be too late for me because I heard D schools fill up their places almost 80% before Jan. My undergrad GPA is around 3.2 and I have decent DAT scores (20 across).

    Do you think I still have chance?
    I have applied - BU, NYU, NOVA, COLUMBIA AND TUFTS.

    I'd forget about Columbia :(

    NYU is prob your best bet. It's comparatively rare for it to be a #1 pick so there's a good chance you get in on the roll.

    I don't know how accurate your stats are but you seemed to have answered your own question - 80% accepted before Jan. So 20% aftewards.
