    I think there MIGHT be a chance...just go for it...the worst thing is you don't get in, but reapply early next year. GOOD LUCK!

    if you have the money, then I would say go for it also, but if not, it could be pretty expensive...
    One other neg. is the time frame, aadsas can be a little slow sometimes, so it might be like playing the lottery there, usually you can expect to wait about 4-5 weeks for the application to begin to get to the schools.
    best of luck!

    Hi,
    If I were you, I would just give me a chance to try. So called "average GPA" means someone got higher score, but someone doesn't (doesn't it?). According to my friend's experence, you should have good chance"S" to get some interviews. Just express you motivation and strong interests in this field to the committe.

    Good Luck!
