  1. Thanks for your response. It was mentioned on the Harvard website that if you do not have an undergrad degree in humanities, you should take some courses related to the program you want to apply for. There are some courses offered on Edx by Harvard university related to religion, do you think taking these courses will improve my chances? Also, as I don't have any related experience, how shall I structure my SOP. Shall I only talk about my interest in comparative religion? Plus, shall I take my Letters of Recommendations from teachers who taught me Humanities related subjects in Engineering or can I ask my manager at work too? And can you please guide me on important points that I should cover in my SOP and LORs. Also, does Harvard or other good universities offer any scholarship for these programs? As I am from Pakistan, I would need assistance not only for paying tuition fee but also for living and other expenses. There is a Full Bright program in my country to which I can apply but I think it will be harder for me to be considered for that in my situation..
  2. Hi All, I have done my bachelors in Electrical Engineering from one of the top Engineering Institutions of Pakistan. My CGPA was 3.5. Now I want to apply for MTS Comparative Religion at Hardvard Divinity School. I have job experience in my field but not anything related to religion. I tried looking for organizations working on inter faith harmony to work as in intern with them but here in Pakistan, there are a very few and I couldn't find their correct contacts. I am mainly interested in comparative religion because I began to question my faith at a young age and I want to study other religions to have a comparative idea and promote inter faith harmony. Also, I read some related literature, a book by one of the greatest writers of Urdu language namely 'River of Fire' which talks about centuries old philosophical traditions of India in detail which got me really interested in Hinduism. I am also currently reading Karen Armstrong's A History of God which focuses on Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Can anyone please guide me what steps I shall follow to get into my desired program with an irrelevant degree?
