    I think Drew would be a match for you. I'm saying this on the basis that I applied for fall 2011 and I got in with a 3.7 GPA, 1850 SAT score and International Dean and 20k/yr scholarship.

    Granted, I am an international student and the admission process for domestic students and int'ls are different. Notwithstanding, I think your stats are fine fore Drew, just perfect your application essays.

    I think Drew would be a safety for you, definitely will recieve a nice scholarship. My D was just accepted with lower stats than you and received some money.
