What's your cumulative GPA?
It will depend on how I finish out undergrad. I'm at my third school. My first school was 2.16, second school was 2.47, and I'm on track to get at least a 3.5+ at my third school (where I will finish the degree). The first two schools I will be writing GPA addendums. So, I'm looking at a cumulative of 2.7-2.85. The first school will have been 11 years since I dropped out when I apply to law school and about 9 years since dropping for the second. I know that the GPA and related issues will limit school choice as well be a hurdle to gaining acceptance anywhere.
I think someone, somewhere has links to GPA calculators (Maybe LDAS?). It all depends on how many credits fall where. If the majority of your credits were in the 3.5 range (3rd school), you're probably sitting good. But, by and by, if you can pull a 170+, you'll get accepted somewhere cool. You'd be a lock for UIC-U and Notre Dame. NU, who knows, but a real chance anyways. I wouldn't even count U CHI out at this point.
