Hey, everyone! Thanks for sharing your stats and guidance on this thread. I'd love any feedback on my stats or background!
Program/Concentration: TIEGRE Score: V 155, Q 158, AWA: 5.0GPA: 3.33/4.00 undergrad (GPA in the last 2 years was 3.82/4.00). Studied engineering.Work Experience: 1 year in operational consulting at a bank, 2.5 years in management consulting with extra curricular experience for over 3 years in education-related initiatives (through a non-profit board). Undergrad/Grad Institution (Public, Private, Ivy, etc..): Top 20 schools in the world, #1 school in my country Research Experience: 3 summers on 3 different projects (2 human factors, 1 data analytics) LoR/SoP: 1 from professor I did research with, 1 from senior manager at work, 1 from a senior leader in the non-profit board (who can speak to my education-related initiatives). SoP focused on STEAM education for under-represented communities and the importance of critical-thinking and tech skills. What Other Schools Are You Applying To: Just HGSE
I am nervous about (a) my limited direct experience in the education sector, even though I was involved in promoting STEAM education throughout my entire college career (b) GRE scores (wrote it in early Dec to meet HGSE's timeline, prepped for less than 2 weeks). Did a campus visit and loved the vibe at HGSE, so really hoping for the best.
Would love to hear your feedback.
Best of luck, all!
