    its hard to say without seeing ur actual OAT scores and GPA. these grades are average but if you do very well on the OAT and if your GPA is pretty good, you have a good chance. but if you are applying this cycle, you need to do so asap cause its getting late in the cycle

      I agree with what's already been said, but ICO, PCO ,NECO, puerto rico and any of the non accredited new schools are going to be easier than say Berkley or SUNY. That being said if you have a 3.0 GPA and get like a 360 on the OAT you could go anywhere.

        what schools do you think I can have a shot at??

        we still cant really say without your stats. it all depends on what you get on OAT and GPA. if they are good, ur fine. if they are not so good, then u have a better chance getting in if you apply early or apply to a less competitive school. Berkeley and SUNY are the most competitive

          have you looked at the entering class profiles?

          http://www.opted.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3449

          if you are really concerned, call each school, let them know what your gpa is and they should be able to help explain what kind of OAT score and extracurriculars they are looking for in their applicants.

          have you filled out the optomcas application yet? every day that passes lowers your chances at getting in with "less than competitive" scores, so I would definitely get on it if you havent already.
           
          oh yeah, and im sorry if i sound rude asking for your gpa and stuff. if its personal, just go to that site and check out the stats for each school to see where you may fit in

          its all good. i actually dont know which is why i just wrote my grades. i went to a presitigous school freshman year communtiy college soph year and back to the same presitgious school junior year (now) so i swtiched form quarter to sem to quarter, so its all ****ed up :D
