Pre-Health (Field Undecided)
I am going into my last semester as an undergrad at a cal state university.
My major is Health Science, and my cum GPA is 3.45, while my major is 3.7

My dream school is UCLA and I want to get an MPH in Health Policy and Management.

I've done a research internship for the city of orange (5 months), in the leadership team in the Health Scholar intership (6 months and counting). Done over 300 hours of volunteering as a Health Scholar (and counting), did a public health internship for city of LA (4 months), served as a Jumpstart Corps member for a year, and on track to do another public health internship next summer 2017.

What I'm most concerned about is my GPA. I calculated it, and even if i get all A's this coming semester, I'll only be at a 3.5 flat. I checked the average GPA for upcoming grad students and its 3.57.

I haven't taken the GRE yet.

Do you think I'll still have a chance getting in?

Take the GRE and then get back to us. We can't tell you anything without the whole puzzle.
