    There is more to your application than just your GPA. You don't mention your SAT or ACT scores. These may help to offset a low GPA. You may also want to take a look at the US News and World Report college ranking web site. They have a list of schools with the highest acceptance rates. Many accept 92-100% of applicants. I'm sure you can find a school that might be a fit. Good Luck

    Go to CollegeBoard's website and look for schools.

    I put in that 50% of the students had between and 2.0-3.00, and that the SAT scores were 1000 (500M, 500CR), and around 30 pages of schools came up.
