As an international student, it will be difficult to get need-based aid except at schools that meet 100% of need for all students–and those might be difficult with your GPA. You could also look at the “work colleges” that guarantee on-campus jobs and lower prices (Berea is the first to come to mind). There are also a few schools with scholarships specifically for international applicants–look up the collegevine article about it, tons of awesome information.

What do you think your class rank is? That will help put your GPA in context.
