Markita, I got accepted to SBU about two weeks ago. The secret is to apply early. I esubmitted ptcas in august and sent my GRE scores out right after it. If you're worried about getting into a program because of a 3.09CGPA, you should apply to more than 4 schools. But you should hear back from SBU.
Oh BTW, I have a 3.02CGPA, and a 3.0 science GPA (this is getting old-maybe I should set up a signature setting slimy stats will show up everytime I post something.
