I’d say go for it! There’s plenty of people on here with worse stats than you! You don’t have anything to lose, besides the money you spend on your applications. Worst case scenario is you don’t get an interview, or you interview and don’t get in. This will be my 3rd year applying, every year that I don’t get in, I go see the OT advisor and ask how to make my application more competitive, I suggest you do the same. Good luck!!

When did you submit your application and receive the verification email back?
Yah, I actually turned my application back in the middle of September and it got verified in a week.
