    I wholeheartedly agree! Just to echo what you said... save yourself the heartache, money, and time, and apply to schools that you can get work done at. Alternatively, you'll have to really tailor and make it seem like you are fit for their uni. The latter option doesn't really sound good to me (since isn't the point of all this not just to get an acceptance, but to get work you enjoy doing done?) The rejections I have received really make sense to me (seems like an issue w/fit though this is not to belittle other factors at play)

    3.7 GPA or lower acceptances

    I don't know whether what I have to say counts for anything, but I have talked to lots of different grad admissions and I think that they really try and look at the application holistically. If they are really excited about you, and the type of person/philosopher you present yourself to be through your application, then I don't think your 3.5 really matters all that much. My GRE scores are absurdly low and I have already had some luck with my acceptances. So, I really don't think you should be focused on the 'low point' of your application. As someone once told me (and this really stuck with me), all applications have them. Focus on showing them why they should accept you regardless of that 3.5

    I just heard back- was told that while they were impressed with my application they still don't have a decision for me. I'm gonna take this as good news lol....
