Yes, I would encourage you to still apply, however, it is important to structure your resume such that the recruiter focuses on something other than your GPA. If you have any applicable experience, either through internships on in school, emphasize this on your resume and on your cover letter. Or if you have been extensively involved in community or similar activities, that should be emphasized. You must show that recruiter that although your GPA is a little low, there is something else that you bring to the table that will off set that.
