You'll be able to find somewhere to go I'm sure, but if you are graduating in three years with a 3.0 GPA it's going to look like you rushed yourself. That's what it looks like to me, anyway.

I attended an unranked (100+ ranking in physics) grad program. The average GPA of incoming students is 3.5 - 3.7. It's a small program with some good professors but not a top reputation, and still only takes about 15% of applicants. A GPA of 3.0 isn't going to help you much at all; it's the minimum requirement, and they can ask for a lot more.
