yoyo Posted December 7, 2009 Share Posted December 7, 2009 A couple of weeks back I was a pretty confident applicant..but I messed up my GRE and since then have been going through hell. My stats are. 1. History Major ('09)..from top 10 liberal arts colleges in India. I dont know my GPA..but I did decently well..top 20-25 in a class of 60. 2. Two good internships during college..one as a research assistant for a Member of the Parliament. The other was public policy research during which I wrote two primary research papers. 3. Currently working for a small public health org. in an Indian city. 4. GRE:570V 560Q (horrible time management) 5. 1 very strong reco from my employer..2 pretty good recos from college professors Before my GRE disaster I was looking at the usual.. SIPA,Fletcher,Michigan(ford school),Cornell,American, Univ of Washington..(looking at colleges with an international outlook and that allows considerable focus/research on South Asia) I dont even have time to retake the GRE since deadlines are in jan and I cant bear the thought of going through prep books again. I have never been too comfortable with math..though I did decently in high school and college level economics, but after these quant scores..I dont think i should look at Quant heavy programs..so that rules out SIPA and Ford school for me right? What I really need advice about is the GRE... am i making a mistake by not retaking the GRE? thereby reducing my already slim chances since I have just a yr of work ex? Advice on other schools that I should consider..will be really helpful! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
