    Hi, guys.
    So I have been reading on on all about importance of GPA and everything but what are my chances if my SLHS GPA is barely above 3 but overall GPA is 3.5?
    I feel like I should have good chances because I have a unique interest in the field, I was involved with international hearing aid manufacturers and clinics, so I have great insight into Audiology as a profession. I also have an international educational background from Russia, England and USA, some Ivy league research involvement, volunteering and fund raising for children with cochlear implants but my professor (who is a chair of the committee and the director of graduate studies at top 15 AuD school) let me know that low GPA in my major will probably get me nowhere.
    So my question is has anyone been accepted with a low major GPA at all?
    I doubt my GRE score will be lower than 300, recommendation letters are probably strong,
    Please help!
    Forgot to mention, I am an international student, would that be a problem? Does anyone know international students studying AuD?
    Plus, I am only applying to schools in urban settings, any insight for me, guys?
    Thank you !
