Looks like you just saved yourself at least ten application fees.

yep. OP needs at least 160 to get even a slight chance at most of those schools.

if you're considering just full time admission options then penn state would be your only realistic shot at acceptance since medians for last year's incoming class were 158, 3.58. but after taking a look at admission decisions for this cycle it looks like admission to penn state has become more competitive. it really looks like if you have below their median gpa, you'd need a 160 at least to have a realistic shot. so you have to start over with a collection of schools with less competitive admission standards. start by looking at public schools in your state ranked 80-100 (or lower) and then look at comparable schools located in other states.
