mwallace04 Posted March 26, 2009 Share Posted March 26, 2009 Hello all out there! I'm seeking the help of some educated individuals to help me make some decisions. I'm a graduating senior at the university of tampa. I'm finishing my undergrad in 3 years (not necessarily intentionally..), and will be walking at graduation in May, though i will be finishing up my final 6 credits with a study abroad in Tanzania this summer. I wasn't sure that i was definitely going to graduate early until November-December, so as a result, I had very little time to get grad school applications together / take the GRE / meet deadlines. So far, I've only applied to NYU-Wagner (my cum.gpa is 3.88, so i didn't take the GRE / didn't have time). There are other places I wanted to apply for for the fall, but obviously missed the deadlines (I think my GPA is high enough to not need to take the GRE, but a lot of schools said you need to take the GRE for scholarship purposes so I still want to take it). I haven't heard from NYU yet and I'm sort of basing my next moves on whether or not I get in. Part of me wants to move back home, work and either: A. apply to more grad schools for the spring semester (time to make some money and take the GRE) B. work for a whole year, study for the LSATS, and go to law school. My lifelong goal is to work for the united nations and lofty as it may sound, i hope to become the secretary general one day. So I guess my main question is, is grad school enough? Do I need the law degree for the UN? Should I still apply to grad schools and then apply to their law programs after a year (and pursue a joint degree)? this is all so new to me and i just wish i had more time to think all of this through! Any advice or suggestions are more than welcome and certainly appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
