I think I should also say hi to everyone and thank you for all the updates ! I am currently a policy track student at Columbia University. I applied two social work program and one public administration program. I have a BA in international relations (GPA 3.9). GRE: verbal :155, quantitative: 170 (I took it two years ago). I have no post-master work experience (which I am extremely worried about). I only did part-time research works for several government agencies and a tons of volunteer works. My research interests are urban poverty and urbanization issues. I haven't heard anything back. Good luck to everyone!!!
