turambar Posted December 21, 2010 Share Posted December 21, 2010 (edited) Hi, I'm an international Asian student with a 1400 GRE (770Q; 630V). I'm doing my MA in Political Science from a well known MA program in the east coast, with my undergrad from a big Asian university. I'm wondering whether it's even worth applying with a mediocre grad GPA? I have a 3.22 grad GPA after one semester of grad school. I have a A- and two grades in the B category. I guess I screwed up the final term papers since my class performance was pretty good. The letters of recommendation would be solid (two of them from my current university professors who taught the courses), so would be the SOP. I'm applying across the board to some Top 20 schools and schools outside Top 50 but mostly in the Top 40-50 range. I thought I'd have a better GPA but I'm feeling pretty down and disappointed right now. Guess my 'target' schools (think Wisconsin, UPenn etc.) are now totally out of the reach. What do you guys think? Do I stand a chance even at the marginal Top 50 ranked places? Edited December 21, 2010 by turambar Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
