      Those grades are not the most competitive in the applicant pool for any school. That doesn't mean you CAN'T get in, it will just be tough. How are your science grades? What kind of medical experience do you have? IMHO, with those grades, you MUST have some great medical experience. ER Tech, EMT, paramedic, nurse, RT, whatever.
      Good Luck,
      Pat

        Your GPA of 3.1 isn't really bad, but it isn't really great either. If you have any Cs, Ds, or Fs in any pre-requisite course you should retake those courses and Ace them. Strong patient care experience will be helpful (If you have no patient care experience EMT certification is a really good start), shadowing a PA will be helpful, and strong letters of recommendation preferably from atleast one PA will help you. Knowing what a PA does and their unique place in healthcare if and when you are interviewed will really help you out.
