Chances for admission for soon to be law school grad applying to NYU Wagner for MPA?
-3.3 college GPA from Ivy League (top one, HYP)
-2-3 years of nonprofit, public sector experience in various capacities (Congress, national nonprofits, etc.).
-Currently finishing law school at top 20 law school, 3.4 GPA
I recently became interested in getting an MPA in NYC, but I am simply too busy with last year of law school right now to take GRE. For NYU Wagner school it is not required I'm told so I'm wondering based on this background if I still have a good shot. Again I don't plan on applying to other MPA programs.
So my basic question is how important is the GRE based on this? Will the fact that I have finished law school debunk any idea based on lack of GRE that I cannot handle the work? Thoughts?
