APHI224 Posted January 1, 2010 Share Posted January 1, 2010 Hi, I am a senior at a small, prestigious private liberal arts college Sociology major, applying to Sociology MA programs for Fall 2010 Overall GPA: 3.10 Last 2 years: 3.01 Major GPA: 3.37 GRE: 1200 3.5AW (I don't know what happened with the writing, I know I'm a very good writer, am submitting writing samples) I am conducting my own independent study research project and fielding a survey at school I know I will have good recommendations from my professors I have applied to UVA, UMD, American, Brandeis, UDEL, GW, Penn State, UNC Charlotte, UNC Wilmington and BU I'm worried because of my low GPA and AW score they won't even consider me and I don't stand a chance at any of the places I'm already applying to so I've started to panic and looking for other schools with lesser requirements My schools is known for grade deflation and they do send a letter with all transcripts stating that grades from here are typically lower than normal universities, but I'm not sure how much that will really matter I just don't want to be left in a few months with only rejections, I need to get in somewhere, what do you think I should do? I'm going to end up spending thousands on like 20 applications if I don't figure this out Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
