riverguide Posted August 4, 2012 Share Posted August 4, 2012 (edited) I would welcome any advice on the best Middle East Studies graduate programs and on the competitiveness of my profile. I am currently considering SAIS, Georgetown, UT Austin and Harvard programs. I am interested in their Middle Eastern studies graduate programs with a contempory ME perspective. My career goal is to work for the Federal Government. I'm taking an intense GRE prep course in DC now. My existing stats are: University of Kentucky International Relations (MENA concentration)/Arabic Languages double major with an Islamic Studies minor (3.82 GPA) Boren Scholar in the Middle East; Islamic Scholar in my program with Scholarship; Two years abroad in the ME at Middlebury Alexandria, AMIDEAST Cairo, AUB, Saifi (Beirut/Urban Arabic), Yarmouk/CET (Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan); Two summer sessions at The London School of Economics; Middlebury College 8 week Summer Intensive Arabic Program at Mills; Paid staffer for US Senator (DC) (Harvard grad who will write my LOR) in the summer (Intern coordinator and Military/Foreign Affairs); OPI Advanced in Arabic (Egyptian Arabic, Lebanese Arabic, Jordanian Arabic, Urban Arabic, MSA); University Academic Excellence Award in French. Any advice would be very much appreciated. Edited August 4, 2012 by riverguide Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
