Tom Ato Posted January 28, 2011 Share Posted January 28, 2011 It's very simple. I am applying to graduate schools literally just to apply. An acceptance will allow me to extend my stay in a foreign country overseas (Saudi Arabia if you're wondering) and continue to live and visit there as a dependent under my family; the laws there are complex and dictate once a person grows up, they must get a job in the country to continue living there UNLESS they are attending school anywhere in the world... essentially. I am a recent engineering graduate. Unfortunately I have a LOW GPA (2.2 ish) from a very difficult engineering program. This is the only setback....I plan to take the GRE in the coming weeks. Upside? I will apply for ANYTHING (music, nursing, art, whatever) just to get an acceptance letter. Looking for a program w/ a late app deadline preferably so I can assemble all the materials. I doubt that anyone has been through such a unique experience like this...but does anyone have any offers or tips of advice where and what to try applying to? Anything that'll let me in? Trust me I'm not dumb as my gpa looks and I can write good personal statements, etc. Fire away please!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
