    PhD chances for an international student

    I guess your GPA and standard test results are good enough to pass the preliminary review of graduate school. However, the department admission committee, especially for anthropology, value the statement of purpose, writing sample, recommendation letters, field/research experiences, publication record and etc. If your target POIs are archaeologists actively involved in Chinese Archaeology such as Li Feng, Lothar Von Falkenhausen, Li Min or Henry Wright, maybe things will be a little bit different. As for the classical archaeology program, I really think you are just donating your application fee to Berkeley.... By the way, the University of Arizona does treat your friend differently because they don't require GRE score from international students like Berkeley. 90th percentile is a recommended score for domestic students.
