    Instate - reach
    OOS - slim to none

    If you are instate look into WWU and WSU. You would be competitive at each of those schools.

    I have really similiar stats. (low GPA/alright test scores) I don't know much about whether or not you will get in, but good luck and hope to see you there next year (ie: I hope we both get in!)

    it's not like they don't look at grades anymore. They look at not only the grades but also your course selection, AP exams, SATs and many other less important factors. With a 2.8 in your junior year (widely seen as the most important), it's unlikely that you'll get into UW, though you might be pleasantly surprised. I agree with the last poster, look into WSU or WWU.
