Njhasty Posted August 30, 2012 Share Posted August 30, 2012 I am applying to political science doctoral programs for the Fall 2013 semester. I want to get some insight into what schools to which I should apply based on my qualifications listed below. Currently I am taking a year off to work and pay off student loans. I still have a few months of time before admissions are due, so I have been working on applications to schools while studying to retest on the GRE. I would much appreciate recommendations and advice. Graduated with BA in Poli Sci from a solid publi state school Undergrad GPA: 3.78 (major gpa is 3.90) GRE: 152V 141Q 4.5AW Research Experience: two independent research courses about globalization Teaching Experience: undergraduate TA for three different classes Conferences: delegate representative at two undergraduate international foreign policy conferences at U.S. military academies Volunteer: service-learning in Costa Rica and Belize LoRs; one from notable tenured professor, one from young tenure track professor, one from tenured professor who was my academic advisor Special Coursework: IR grad proseminar Research interests: international security, international conflict, foreign policy decision-making- these are very flexible Keep in mind I am retesting on the GRE to attain a higher score. I project a score in the 70th to 90th percentile the next time I retest. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
