NYU SCPS Information and chances please!
Hello everyone, I am currently a senior majoring in Political Science at Marist College in upstate NY and I am looking to go to graduate school to get a Masters in International Relations.. Here is my problem.. Today I took my GRE and did not do so well in them (148 Verb, 146- Qual), I really can not work under time pressure and I have been going through a lot of personal stress lately so that also affected my state of mind today. However, that is not the point.. I have been researching schools that do not require the GRE, and found that the NYU SCPS (School of Continuing and Professional Studies) does not require the GRE, unless your application is weak, then they may ask to look at it, Well my question is does anyone know of this school? How is it? I want to get an MS in Global Studies with a focus on Intenraional relations (I believe this is very close to what I want to study). Here is some information about me.. Do you think I have a chance to get into this school?
