  1. Program Applied To (MPA, MPP, IR, etc.): MPP Schools Applied To: University of Michigan, Georgetown, UCB, Mills, NYU (I didn't submit this one until early March) Schools Admitted To: University of Michigan ($), Georgetown ($), UCB Schools Rejected From: None yet Still Waiting: Mills, NYU (don't except to hear from NYU until much later) Undergraduate Institution: UCSD Undergraduate GPA: 3.8 Undergraduate Major: Management Science GRE Quantitative/Verbal/AW Scores: 160 (73rd) / 158 (80th) / 3.0 (15th...oooooof) Years Out of Undergrad (if applicable): 8 Years of Work Experience: 6 (0 relevant -- I was a pastry cook and then I spent 1 year as an administrative analyst for a local company) Describe Relevant Work Experience: n/a Strength of SOP (be honest, describe the process, etc): Strong. I worked with a writing coach on this because writing has never been my strong point. I honestly had no idea what to write and she asked me a lot of questions to point me in the right direction and help me organize my thoughts. Strength of LOR's (be honest, describe the process, etc): Eh. I waived my right to read them, but I'm not sure they were particularly strong. I've spent the last 1.5 years re-taking courses at my local community college so I asked my professors from these classes and also a former pastry coworker. I sent them a document about why I wanted to go to graduate school and what I wanted to do with my career, but I'm not sure how much of that they included in their letters. Other: I just wanted to share my results and experience to show that people who don't have any relevant experience can still have hope! I had many quantitative courses and high grades in undergrad so that along with my SOP probably helped my application quite a bit, since other aspects of my application were weak compared to many others here. I was hoping just to get accepted into one school and wasn't expecting to get into my top choice (UCB) at all, so I am extremely grateful and excited for that. If you have any questions or want to talk/connect, feel free to DM. Good luck and congrats to all current and future applicants!!
  2. Just got accepted via email!! No funding, but in-state tuition makes this the most affordable option for me.
