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:
Lasalle University (Philadelphia)
Ball State University
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.
