What to do?

Asked 6 months ago by Guest (120 points)

I'm in my 4th year at York University in Toronto.  I goof'd up big time / suffered a union strike for 6+ weeks in my first year, and therefore have an abnormally low Science GPA (~2.7). Otherwise, my overall GPA upon graduation will be around 3.5. I think my chances of acceptance in Canada are non-existent, but I'm wondering if anyone can help me realize my chances in the USA? I have hundreds of hours of EC's and shadowing, reference letter from an O-chem prof + more to come, and a work-study position on campus under a different professor.  I'll be writing the DAT this summer and hope/plan to score very highly.  Can i do it?

All input and advice is highly appreciated. Thanks very much in advance.

It doesn't hurt to try, but I would connect with admissions officers at US institutions to get a sense of which schools would be more inclined to accepting non-US students and then their academic preferences among applicants.
