I'm new to this forum and I would love any insight provided. I am graduating in May with a BA in Film Studies from a state school. However, due to a variety of factors, I want to pursue a Masters in Public Relations/Strategic Communication. I will admit I don't have a ton of experience but I am applying for summer internships (fingers crossed....). I'm wondering if I may be a competitive applicant for the following schools: Georgetown John Hopkins American University Lasalle University (Philadelphia) Ball State University Syracuse (Newhouse) My credentials are as follows: GPA (Major): 4.0; overall: 3.961 Publications: book review in peer-reviewed journal Teaching experience: 2 official teaching assistantships; 3 tutoring positions in freshman English courses Presentations: paper presented at undergraduate conference (Society for Cinema and Media Studies) Research experience: conducted research for a book my professor wrote - my work appears in the appendix of the book Employment: writing consultant/clerical assistant at campus Writing Center GRE: pending scores This is not an exhaustive list but merely an overview of my accomplishments.
