  1. I feel supremely unqualified and also feel like I waited too late to begin this application, but life has gotten in the way every time I've started it. Finally have asked for LoR's, started the essays...luckily my life is entering a calmer period as I wait for a grant project to begin. Anyone else feel the same way?
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
