tippetta Posted September 26, 2017 Share Posted September 26, 2017 Hi, I'm applying this cycle for grad schools in Political Science and wanted to know what you guys thought about my GRE scores and potentially my profile more generally. I just graduated from a top 10 LAC and am currently doing a 1 year masters program in Political Science in the UK (okay school, top 10 in politics. I received a full scholarship though). I took the GRE this summer and was hoping for 160+ on the Quant but fell short. Do you guys have any advice? GPA (Top 10 LAC in the US): 3.6 overall, 3.87 in Political Science/IR GRE: 170 Verbal (99th Percentile) / 159 Quantitative (73rd Percentile) / 4.5 AW (82nd Percentile) LOR: 3 very strong letters. One from professor who truly adores me, one from undergrad thesis adviser and one from professor I did research with in addition to taking courses with. Research Experience: Senior Thesis (received distinction), Summer spent as RA for prof, Seminar papers, will finish Dissertation over the course of Masters program here. Topic of Interest: IR, specifically looking at norms regulating the use of force and state behaviors within those normative regimes Schools of interest (Probably will end up being a smaller list): Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Stanford, Michigan, Columbia, UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, Cornell, Wisconsin, U Chicago, George Washington Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
