canesfan2011 Posted September 11, 2010 Share Posted September 11, 2010 Hey guys, I'm applying for an MPA/MPP at the DC area schools (GW, GTown, AU, UMD) and am applying to HKS as my reach. I know they place a heavy emphasis on work experience and say on the website very few people get in straight from undergrad. On top of that I'm graduating a year early so I'll be 21 when I enter grad school. I was wondering if you guys could tell me how little of a shot I actually have...
