  1. Hi all, I was quite unmotivated in my undergraduate degree studies in Political Science. I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life or degree, and didn't take University very seriously, so my GPA suffered as a result (3.0/4.0) with a severe downward trend. After I graduated I taught English overseas, and really enjoyed it so I came back to the US and enrolled in a post-baccalaureate teaching program. I was highly motivated and received a 4.0/4.0 in this program, and two scholarships for academic and teaching excellence. It's been two years since that time, and I'm thinking about getting a Master's degree in Admin/Educational Leadership. I know I can most probably get into several programs, but I'd like to try my hand at some more selective schools like Harvard, Columbia, Stanford, etc. I have done research on these schools, but it's hard to really know whether or not my undergraduate GPA will tank my application. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks!
  2. That makes total sense. Thanks very much for taking the time to answer my question.
  3. Ah. Thanks for the insight. Can you please tell me if this is true for non-profit distance schools as well? I'm also considering Lamar University and Arizona State for masters degrees. My teaching license is in a brick and mortar school, but I will have left the country by the time I complete my degree. Thanks.
  4. Hi, I will be finishing my graduate post-bacc teacher license in December of next year and because I will not be staying in the country long enough to complete my masters degree, I am considering online options. The school that interests me the most is the American College of Education. Does anyone have any experience with this school? I know they are a for profit, online school...but they appear to be regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, and they are actually cheaper than several brick and mortar universities in my area. I'm not planning on ever teaching in a public school, so the purpose of the degree would be for a bigger pay scale in international private schools. Thanks!
