I know it can be a bit difficult to figure out if you are eligible to apply for a certain university/country, considering you have some backlogs. European universities particularly have a high acceptance rate.

You can look at other universities with a relatively high acceptance rate like - 

1. University of Illinois

2. Arizona State University

3. University of Delaware

4. Michigan State University

5. Texas A&M University

While this is just a general list, you can definitely get more universities that have a higher acceptance rate.

What you also need to keep in mind is that these universities have various other judging parameters like extracurricular achievements, work experience, entrance exam scores etc. which help them figure out if you are the right fit for their university. I know that the bachelor grade requirement is also set but if you have all these other factors in your profile, it would surely give you an edge.

Why don't you tell me more about your profile? Maybe then I would be able to check if your overall profile matches the requirements of these universities or any other universities that you wish to target for that matter.

Backlogs in your academic record can be a concern when applying to European universities, but they don't automatically disqualify you from being admitted into a good program. It's crucial to address these backlogs transparently in your application while highlighting aspects that reflect your potential and strengths.
When preparing your application, focus on elements that can counterbalance your academic weaknesses. For instance, strong GRE scores, relevant work experience, research projects, and professional certifications can all play a significant role in enhancing your profile. Additionally, your personal statement and letters of recommendation should reflect your academic resilience and personal growth.
Many European universities take a holistic approach to admissions, evaluating the entire application to understand the candidate's journey. Be honest about your academic challenges and articulate clearly how you have worked to overcome them and how you plan to ensure academic success in the future.
Furthermore, consider applying to universities that might be more flexible in their admission criteria and don't solely focus on academic performance. Schools in countries like Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands often offer programs with diverse admission criteria that might be more forgiving to students with complex academic histories.
