I have a friend who has taken the GRE twice, and is curious about PhD programs in History (Renaissance or Medieval).
On the first GRE he got a 490 V and a 710 Q.
The second time, he got a 590 V and a 750 Q on the GRE
He goes to a small liberal arts college with no stellar reputation.
My friend is a double major in History and Mathematics, with a minor in Art History. His GPA is a 3.9/4.0, with approx. a 3.95 GPA in History. He is a member of the History National Honor Society, Math National Honor Society, Art National Honor Society, and Jesuit National Honor Society. He has studied Latin, French, Italian, and Spanish in college as well. He participates in various activities on campus, and the letters of rec with be great.
What are the chances of getting into the following History PhD programs?
CUNY (Graduate Center)
U of Chicago
