MegMill Posted December 2, 2010 Share Posted December 2, 2010 I am applying to PhD History programs. I went to a crazy bible school (Bob Jones University) and graduated with a 3.65 in history. I went to a small regional law school and graduated with honors (not spectacular honors, tho). I passed the NC bar in July 2009. My GRE sucked: Verbal: 620 Quantative: 640 Analytical Writing: 5 Diversity/Intangibles: Raised by a single, drug-addicted parent. Said parent died of overdose my last semester of undergrad. I forsook the teachings of Bob Jones University and became an open lesbian (this was not in my personal statement). I wrote my Third Year law school thesis on Same-Sex Marriage (this is in my personal statement). A week after the NC Bar Exam, I lost all feeling in my body and was diagnosed after an emergency brain and spinal scan with Multiple Sclerosis. Everything is in my personal statement except the lesbian part. I thought that might be a little much in your faceness since I already told them I grew up in a home full of drugs and abuse and that I was diagnosed with MS. Schools: Harvard UVA Univ of Illinois UNC Duke University of Chicago UPENN WashU Vanderbilt NYU Columbia University of South Carolina Georgetown University of Michigan University of Maryland Boston College Do I have a chance with any of these? Please, please be honest. I can't bear false hope! gradschoolwhat and Bukharan 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
