Gatretsokaz8 Posted September 18, 2010 Share Posted September 18, 2010 Hi! I am currently a senior undergrad applying for Masters programs in international Development. My top choices are the MS in Foreign Service at Georgetown, the MA in International Development at SAIS Johns Hopkins, and the MAID Program at the Fletcher School at Tufts University. Do I have any chance of getting in with the below credentials?: Pepperdine University: 3.95 GPA - Double Major: International Studies, Economics, - Conflict Management Certificate, German Minor GRE: 650 V 770 Q 5.0 AW Experience: Research Assistant: Executive Office of the President - Office of National Drug Control Policy - Summer 2010Intern: World Vision United States Washington DC Summer 2010Study Abroad: Heidelberg, Germany Fall 2008 - Spring 2009Resident AdvisorOn campus jobs all four yearsNumerous service trips to Mexico, GuatemalaLed Spring Break service trips to Seattle to work with the homeless Languages: high proficiency in both German and French Can anyone speak to whether I might be competitive now, or wasting my time? I understand I don't necessarily have the work experience these schools are looking for but might my academic qualifications outweigh this? Are there additional programs in International Development I should explore? Thanks everyone! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
