  1. Hello all, I'm new to the site, and wanted to get people's opinions on a question. I was admitted to SHU's Whitehead School but was rejected from Elliot, SIS, and presumably will not get into SFS. I am thinking about deferment for a year so that I could improve my application but first I wanted to get opinions on why I didn't get admitted to the school in the first place. The easy answer would be my low undergraduate GPA, but when I brought that issue up with the advisors, they said that since I was a science major, they would look primarily at my non-science courses/courses that would be more relevant to the graduate program. I'm hoping that other people here will be able to shed some light on the matter, and hopefully give me some good ideas for how to improve my application package. stats: GRE: 690V, 720Q, 5.5 AW GPA: 2.81 (Neuroscience) but non-science courses were all A's. Also took 2 Econ (micro/macro) and 1 IR class at local JC's, w/ all A's. 1 year of medical school, but withdrew (didn't like it) Work experience - undergraduate science research for 2 years at UCLA. Spent a year studying in the Caribbeans. 2 months in Shanghai interning at a law firm and taking intensive mandarin classes. Basic mandarin skills, hoping to improve them to conversational in grad school. Currently tutoring SAT's/GRE's/general school subjects Thank you!
