Hi guys, I am applying this year cycle, currently just graduated from my university. I have seen a lot of posts about the chances topics, either with good GPA or tons of hours. Unfortunately, I have neither of the above. My situation is simple and complicated. I just immigrate to the US since 2016, and decide to go to veterinary school in 2017. I believe everyone knows how hard to find someplace to gain veterinary experience by ourselves, and wit the language barrier and maybe I'm not smart enough, I end up got a 3.11 GPA, and around 300 hours animal experience, both with veterinarian and without. Except Equine experience I don't have any, I have mostly small animal experience and few large animals and exotics. I do have some research experience. During the following year I decide to go to graduate school in Colorado State Univ, (not vet school but the Master Degree program in their vet school). I hope that will give me a backup plan if I keep being rejected in the future. But I do want to have a try this year. My lowest grade is C- in biochem, therefore before I retake biochem in the future, all the schools i can apply are accepting C- as the lowest grade, not a lot, but some.
This is all what I have for now, I'm posting to ask do I still have chances? Or is there anything I can do before I submit my application?
Thank you very much!

Thank you very much!

It would be helpful to provide more details in the format listed above.

I applied with a GPA just a bit lower than yours. I was accepted to one school and rejected from many others. I'll be honest: it's going to be very difficult to have your application looked at with a low GPA. Please tell us more about your application so we can provide more detailed advice :)
