honestly as an out-of-stater, you have NO chance at UW
also Columbia and UPenn are a stretch with an average gpa and DAT, no offense

U still got a year to go.. so your GPA isn't set yet. It's hard to tell with the 1 year uncertainty. U're on a good track tho. Study hard on the DAT and you should have a good shot. Nothing is guaranteed. We can't ensure you that you'll get in... good shot is all I can say. Tufts, NYU, BU, UMDNJ :thumbup:
