BrianHey Posted November 15, 2010 Share Posted November 15, 2010 So, I am a junior at The University of Georgia, I am double majoring in Philosophy and Women's Studies, I participate in the honors program, I have taken three graduate courses and received As in all three (I plan on taking at least three more before the application season next fall), and I am working on an undergraduate thesis within queer theory. I expect to apply to graduate school with an overall GPA of 3.8. I haven't taken the GRE yet. I have two concerns, or areas of inquiry, rather: 1) I spent my first year of college at a small joke of a school; although I left with a 4.0, I am wondering if this will hurt me? 2) Do you believe that taking graduate courses would bolster my chances significantly? That is what I'm hoping for in taking them, obviously, hah! (Of course the experience is great, too). I really want to shoot high-- Columbia (English PhD), Berkeley (PhD) Rhetoric, U Chicago (English Phd), NYU (Comp Lit or English PhD), or The New School (Philosophy PhD). I feel like I'm dying as an undergrad right now with my load of classes. Am I being unrealistic or am I right on track? PS: Writing this at 3 AM rather than working on a seminar paper...so just excuse run-ons, incoherency, etc. BrianHey 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
