Hello I applied to these schools for OT. Boston University, UNC Chapel-Hill, University of Pittsburgh and NYU. Can you guys let me know if I am a competitive applicant, my undergraduate gpa so far is a 3.8, but my cumulative gpa from OTCAS is a 3.04 it should go up this semester. I am a research assistant and have 30 hours of volunteer experience. I have 1 LOR from an OT, two from my professors and one from the department of my major. It has been really hard to do volunteer hours because of COVOID, and all the schools I applied for the GRE is waived. I am also afraid that my GPA is to low to qualify for scholarships. I am from North Carolina so, I would have to pay out of state tuition. My EFC is extremely low I cannot afford that.

Thank you ! I think OTCAS also includes retaking a class , most colleges and universities do grade replacement.
