afas103 Posted May 9, 2020 Share Posted May 9, 2020 Hey sorry to be the newbie, asking about their stats. I have been preparing my application for the next cycle early because of all the virus stuff. I was hoping some one may have some general advice for me. Here are my stats. Public School top 50ish, BA Political Science (3.85) BS Physics(3.2) 3.6 GPA special coures: calc 3, diff eq, honors quantum, honors electro magnetism, two r/stats political methodology classes, three other stats classes NSF Fellowship leading to a co authorship on a paper in resilience decision making will soon be published in a pretty decent journal, helped a professor program a R/mathematica Bootstrap monte Carol simulation, and helped with some black transnationalism research. GRE 159V, 165Q 4.0 AWS Coached and did Debate through college, have programmed a couple apps and websites Studied Chinese at a university in China for a semester after college had to flee though because of the coronavirus. I'm somewhere between hsk 4 and hsk 5 right now. I have a writing sample I could go with, but I am thinking about writing a new one because I have the time and so its more relevant to what I want to study. Should I maybe retake the GRE? I wanted a 167 on the Quant would that be worth it? Also the writing section was pretty low. I only have one great letter from the NSF, one good letter from another professor at the NSF project, and one just from a professor I took a couple of classes with. Any advice or anything else i could do in the next seven months to prepare for the applications? What do my chances look like for top 10, top 5, top 3 programs. I don't know too much about the process. I would appreciate any feedback anyone could give me Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
