Interests: Security Studies, East Asian Policy Undergrad Institution: UNC-CH Undergraduate Major: Peace, War, and Defense (a relatively department unique to my school)
Undergraduate GPA: 3.0 (Major: 3.4) - I had a rough 1st semester.
GRE: Q153 V165 Writing: Hasn't been released yet.
Years of Work Experience: 3
Work Experience: Currently, I am in my 3rd year of teaching at an international school in Shanghai. While in college, I interned for my Congressman and at the Executive Branch's office in my home state.
Language: I've taken two years of Chinese tutoring while abroad. Hopefully, I will be intermediate-level by the time I matriculate
LORs: Two professors whose classes I did well in, but I didn't keep up relations with.
Concerns: My undergraduate GPA is low for top tier programs. However, it's not reflective of the high scores that I received in many of my major classes. I have very little quantitative background which is a concern.
Any feedback would be great.
