    UPDATE: In at USC Price with a full scholarship! A bit shocked, to say the least.

    Program Applied To: MPP, MPAff (LBJ), MIA (UCSD) Schools Applied To: UMichigan (Ford), UChicago (Harris), UT Austin (LBJ), Georgetown (McCourt), USC (Sol), UCLA (Luskin), GWU (Trachtenberg), UCSD (GPS) Schools Admitted To: UChicago (Harris) $$, UT Austin (LBJ) with $$$, Georgetown (McCourt) $ Schools Rejected From: N/A Still Waiting: UMichigan, USC, UCLA, GWU, UCSD Undergraduate institution: University of Michigan Undergraduate GPA: 3.73 Last 60 hours of Undergraduate GPA (if applicable): 3.62 Undergraduate Major: Public Policy BA 157 GRE Quantitative Score: 157 GRE Verbal Score: 161 5.5 GRE AW Score: 5.5 Years Out of Undergrad (if applicable): 0 (graduating in May!) Years of Work Experience: 0 Describe Relevant Work Experience: 3.5 years of research experience specializing in how political leaders use Twitter -- I've been a co-author on three publications, and just got a first-authorship comparing the tweets of Trump, Modi, Wilders, and Farage in a peer-reviewed journal last year. Two four month internships with the Mayor of a major city, freshman summer and junior summer, in addition to a policy internship at that city's Regional Chamber of Commerce completed sophomore summer. Strength of SOP (be honest, describe the process, etc): I sought to talk about what my BA program in Public Policy was missing, primarily as it concerned to quantitative analytical skills. I sought to also discuss my academic curriculum and my research to an extent, and how the interests motivating those two have led me to pursue an MPP, as I seek to expand my skillset. Strength of LOR's (be honest, describe the process, etc): I had four letters of recommendation. The first was from my research advisor, who oversaw the four publications (including the first-authorship) I was part of, and for whom I've worked since October of my freshman year. The second was a professor, with whom I took a class both first semester freshman year, and second semester junior year (this second class was mixed with a lot of Master's/PhD students on urban development in South Asia). The third was an intern advisor from the Mayor's Office (both times), who I worked exclusively for the second go-around on policy issues. The fourth was a professor whose class I took last year in the PP curriculum. I think the strength of the first three were that they've all seen me grow throughout my undergraduate years, given the timespans that I interacted with them in. Other: Straight out of Undergrad! Shocked by some of the funding offers though (the fact that I got funding!).
