    It depends on the university. Your SATs are good, but your GPA is low, and that's going to be their primary concern. Still, there are plenty of colleges out there that you could look at.

    If there are mitigating factors to your GPA, that might help. For example, if your GPA started very low in freshman year but has been on the rise since.

    If I knew where you wanted to go to school re: region, I could suggest some possible schools, but in general, just to get you thinking, I might have you look at: Curry College, Youngstown State U, U Texas El Paso, King College, Dean College, West Coast U, Western Kentucky U, U Toledo, U Alaska, U Maine Augusta, U Maine Fort Kent, Albertus Magnus, Anna Maria College, U Montana, Paul Smith's College, SUNY Maritime, Alfred U, U Rhode Island, U New England, U Southern Maine, and lots more.

    there are quite a few colleges that accept all high school grads.
    according the college board, the number of 4 year places that accept all high school grads is 297..soo you have at least those places that would take those scores

    You should get into some PA state schools like Kutztwon, East Stroudsburg and the like
  • yoitzzjasonnyoitzzjasonn Registered User Posts: 351 Member
    How about any CUNYS? (Hunter or Queens??) or St.Johns??
  • diontechristmasdiontechristmas Registered User Posts: 2,891 Senior Member
    Yeah, a 2.0 won't get you into Temple. Pretty sure the minimum is a 2.6 for D-I athletes, so nowhere close for students...
  • BrownBear1BrownBear1 - Posts: 264 Junior Member
    Temple is a match especially with 1800+
  • diontechristmasdiontechristmas Registered User Posts: 2,891 Senior Member
    I think I'd know better than you would; a 2.02 will not get you into Temple. I dont care that they have an 1800+ on the SATs. That's not even a big deal at Temple.
  • wutangfinancialwutangfinancial Registered User Posts: 808 Member
    go to McGill
  • Claire1016Claire1016 Registered User Posts: 1,088 Senior Member
    A 2.0 probably won't get you into temple. I know a lot of people with higher gpa's and 1600+ SAT scores who were turned down, but I guess it could be worth applying to as a reach.

    Other PA schools that might take you:

    Kutztown
    ESU
    Bloomsburg
    West Chester
    IUP
    Clarion
    Shippensburg

    BU college of general studies.

    Or basically any prestigious community college equivalent.
  • diontechristmasdiontechristmas Registered User Posts: 2,891 Senior Member
    I dont think a 2.0 gets you into West Chester.
