philstudent1991 Posted September 7, 2013 Share Posted September 7, 2013 My major GPA is a 4.0 and my GRE verbal is 99th percentile. My letters will say I am one of the best out of the department in years, and my sample, I think, will be pretty solid. Yet, I wonder if I can get in to any Leiter T 20 program. This is because I go to a school that does not have a PhD program, and is not a SLAC or Dartmouth or anything of the sort. It's not a community college or anything either, but it does not have an overwhelming academic reputation. I would be curious to hear from those that got into top schools with less that outstanding pedigree as to whether this weakness is damning to an otherwise exceptional application. (And yes, I know I should apply to some MAs). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
