The truth is admissions is generally competitive no matter where you apply; GPA will always be a factor in the decision to accept or reject. Apply to a wide variety of schools (if you can afford it), or spend an extra year or two raising your GPA if it is that concerning to you.
Thanks for your reply. Raising my GPA is not possible as it was my last semester of coursework and my school doesn't give you any option to improve it. So, yeah, stuck with it for the rest of my life.
Also, now visiting the above list after nearly a month, I notice that I listed some high reach universities like Wisconsin-Madison, Queens, Ohio State, Minnesota twin cities, UIC etc. So, I guess I'll add a few other universities....that'll hopefully be not that out of reach. I guess Louisiana State, and as another user stated Kansas State, Arizona State, South Carolina etc.
