thdus82 Posted February 21, 2014 Share Posted February 21, 2014 (edited) I will be applying this fall and am hoping to start a PhD in higher ed in Fall 2015. -Undergrad: UCLA, Economics, GPA 3.36 -Grad: Johns Hopkins, Urban Education, GPA 4.0 -Professional experience: Accounting (2 years), urban middle school math teacher (2 years through TFA) -Research experience: RA in grad school. Conducted large-scale research on financial aid and college access. -Letters of recommendation: Grad school professors, principal at the school I worked at -GRE: Will take this summer -Research interests: financial aid, college access and completion rates, measurement/evaluation, quantitative research -Schools of interest: USC, UCLA, Harvard, Stanford, TC, Hopkins, UPenn, Berkeley With a fairly low undergrad GPA, I want to learn how I can boost my chance of getting into a funded doctorate program. I plan to visit a few schools this summer to meet with the professors I want to work with to see the fit. Any tips and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
