Decided to change plans..


Recommended Posts

I am a public policy student and applied to a number of schools that were pretty much on par with my GPA and other stats. Personal and family circumstances persuaded me to stay at my local state U to complete my Masters in public policy and administration. Luckily this may go in my favor... here is why

1. Bumped my GPA up substantially from a 3.6 to 3.753 (Magna Cum laude)

2. Accepted into the political science Honor society

3. Awarded a prestigious commendation from the state legislature for my public service and work to further diabetes related causes

4. Gained some awesome rec letters

So even though I had to basically fall back to plan D, it might actually end up being better in the end. May get a shot at UT Austin, OSU, Duke of even berkeley for my doctoral studies.

Here's hoping!

Bonus - local state U is a heck of a lot cheaper!
