Helpplease123 Posted December 1, 2011 Share Posted December 1, 2011 Hi, I just took the revised GRE test today and pretty pleased with my results , especially as I bombed the GMAT about a month ago. I want to start an MPA program in the fall but I am not sure based on my stats what would be good safety schools, although I've picked out schools I really want to go to, don't want to be left with nothing! Stats are: 25/F from England Undergrad 3.5 GPA in Psychology and quite a bit of charity work etc while at Uni. GRE: Q159 (old scoring 750) - 82nd percentile, V165 (old scoring 690) - 96th percentile) 6 months travelling in central america, 6 months at a language school in Austria (studying German) 1 year working in events 2 years working in retail (1 year in management in a department store, 1 year in buying for the companies website), then left to start studying Right now am taking online classes in calculus and statistics and volunteering at an elderly persons home, from January enrolling in community college to take classes in micro/macro economics, finance and maybe some poli sci as didn't take any of these things as part of my undergrad and think I will find the MPA too difficult with no prior knowledge. I would like to apply to USC, NYU and Columbia but was wondering if based on my stats I have any chances of getting in and what other schools I should consider as safer options. Looking forward to getting your opinions/suggestions! Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
