  1. If I managed to get a minor in statistics and had primarily A's in those 4 or 5 classes and scored high on the quant section of the GRE do you think that will make up for my low mark, or is getting into a top 50 PhD program straight out of undergrad implausible now? Since I am a 19 year old junior, I may just stay in undergrad for another year to beef up my foreign language and quant skills if that would drastically improve my chances. I honestly just figured the quicker I got out of undergrad the stronger applicant I would be.
  2. What would be some math courses you would recommend for me to take in order to improve?
  3. I have already failed it, so there is no preventing it at this point. I am not bad at math and feel I could go well on the GRE, but honestly math just really bores me and it has been tough to stay focused and motivated in my math courses. And I primarily want to do research on the role of religion in international politics.
  4. I am currently a junior double majoring in international affairs and economics. I currently have a 3.5 gpa (which has been pretty steady throughout my college career), am writing an honors thesis, and plan on taking the GRE this summer. I plan on applying for Political Science PhD programs and a few masters, with my anticipated subfields being international relations and comparative government. I want to do research on either the development of communist states or religious conflict. My problem is that my math classes are not that strong. I clepped College Algebra, received a C in Pre-Calc, re
