levee343 Posted March 13, 2017 Share Posted March 13, 2017 (edited) Hey all, I am thinking about applying to an MPP program. Experience Internships: Merrill Lynch, Gov. Affairs firm, foreign affairs non profit organization 1 Year has fundraising consultant 2.5 years on Capitol Hill (intern 6 months, staff assistant 2 years) 1 Year as a regulatory Analyst in the private sector GWU undergrad low GPA: 2.92 GRE: 161 V 155 Q 4 W You guys think I have a shot at a top 10 program? I realize that my GPA is low, I had a bit too much fun in college (additionally dealt with a very difficult time within my family my Sophomore and Junior year- illness and death in the immediate family). I'm seeing a lot of intern experience here from Capitol Hill but not too much staff experience. Staff Assistant is a broad term, I was very hands on in my office from a policy standpoint. I played a substantial role in formulating a response and generating policy initiatives surrounding a nationally known disaster that occurred in my bosses district, which I plan elaborate on in my essay. I received an offer from a well known firm last fall in the private sector and couldn't say no. I would consider myself a policy "wonk." I'm a hell of a networker.
