What are my chances? 2020

Hello all,
I am am looking for some honest answers about my chances of getting into vet school. My overall GPA is below a 3.0 (this, quite literally, keeps me up at night) but I have 5+ years of veterinary hospital experience, 1 year research experience, 1 year pet store experience, and many years of volunteer experience with small animals, wildlife, and horses. I also studied abroad in Europe where I studied animal production and genetics. I have not taken the GRE yet but I am anticipating a high score.
I understand some schools require a 3.0 minimum GPA so I am not qualified for those schools.
Any sort of honest assessment of my chances would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
