Sbrail2 Posted October 13, 2015 Share Posted October 13, 2015 Hey all, I'm a current graduating senior and I'm looking to apply straight to PhD programs and I'm wondering if it looks like I have any real chance or if I should focus on MA programs first. I'm looking to apply to Ohio State, Georgetown, WashU and GWU. My biggest concern is mostly that my school is nowhere near what you'd consider top tier, I think its ranked 129. I haven't taken my GRE yet and I know that makes it a bit more difficult to judge based on that, but I'm taking it the 30th of this month. PROFILE:Type of Undergrad Institution: Large State UniversityMajor(s): Political Science - American Government concentrationUndergrad GPA: 3.9 cumulative, 4.0 in majorType of Grad: N/AGrad GPA: N/A GRE: Taking it the 30th but I'm hoping for 155+ Letters of Recommendation: I have three very strong LORs, one from the department chair of the Political Science department here who does have many connections. Research Experience: Only what I've done via my classes Teaching Experience: N/ASubfield/Research Interests: American Government, Political TheoryOther: 4 years of military experience, strong work resume, great academic performance.
