My grade point average for the last 90 quarter credits was slightly less than a 3.0. Should I apply anyway, or is it a waste of time?

The program is sometimes able to offer a provisional slot to a student who has a slightly lower grade point average, if they show strong potential for success in other ways, such as their score on the GRE or MAT, compelling reasons for their low GPA (such as illness), and a strong commitment to the field.
