    Fulbright 2020-21

    I've decided to do it. When I look at all the Pickering and Rangel fellows with Fulbright in their bios, it's clear that I have to at least try. Peace Corps is a good first step, but I need a little more to have a shot of getting funding/getting in.

    Fulbright 2020-21

    I'm thinking about applying but honestly I'm not sure if I will or not. I'm a current Peace Corps Volunteer in Eastern Europe and I'd like to stay in the area to keep practicing my Russian. I just don't know if I can do another 9-10 months abroad or if I'll be able to afford it money-wise. I'm angling for one of the difficult to get international relations fellowships in grad school and I need to make up for not being able to afford to do anything in undergrad or move to DC for a 30k/year job after undergrad. I wish I had someone to talk to about all this stuff!

    The 'Am I competitive' thread - READ ME BEFORE POSTING

    I figured I would just ask here instead of starting a whole new thread. I will be applying for Fall 2020 and I'll be applying to at least SIPA, SAIS, GU, GWU, and AU for ID programs. My problem is that I am truly, 100% terrible at quantitative courses. I hate them. I haven't taken a math class since my senior year of high school. In college I only took microeconomics (got a C+, so no good) and a game theory class. I took a logic class to get out of the quantitative requirement for my major. How imperative is it that I retake/take micro/macroeconomics before applying? I haven't taken the GRE yet and I'm currently a Peace Corps volunteer, so I don't have access to my local CC. I had a contract position as an analyst after graduation but it only lasted 3 months, so it's not any sort of impressive analyst work that would make up for a lack of quantitative courses in college.
