Robyn1030 Posted January 5, 2014 Share Posted January 5, 2014 (edited) Hello, I am looking for some honest opinions. I am applying to a PhD program in Social Policy. Below is my profile: Undergrad: 3.65 GPA. Major - Social Work, Minor - Psychology. Dean's list 7 out of 8 semesters. 2 honors societies. Graduated Magna Cum Laude. Law School: 2.81 GPA - I know, not great. However, my law school has a horrible grading curve (2.7!). For what it's worth, I made Dean's List 2 of the 3 years. I also had 2 great internships and did a year-long clinic. GRE: V - 1.59 (81%); Q - 149 (37%) (I know, I suck at math!); AW - 4.5 (78%).Work experience: Over 5 years experience as an attorney working in law and policy. Currently working for federal government. Research experience: Conducted 2 independent studies (1 with funding) in undergrad. Recently authored 445-page policy report that has gained international attention. Also authored several articles for professional journals. LORs: 3 LORs - former social work professor, former law school professor, current supervisor. SOP: I think it's pretty good Do I have a chance???
