I am looking at AU and Sciences Po for their Masters in International Development. If I were to attend AU I would want to do the combined Peace Corps International Masters Program. I also want to do a regional concentration on Latin America.
Am just wondering am I shooting to high? If so could you recommend some schools more in my range...
Undergrad Double Major: Communications and Modern Languages from a small liberal arts school in Florida, Eckerd College.
-Modern languages meant I learned French as my primary language and Italian as my secondary. I also informally learned Spanish in Latin America and speak it at an advanced level.
- Graduated with Honors and a 3.66 GPA
-GRE: V163 QUANT152 Writing:4.5
I started my undergrad at The American University of Paris, later did a semester abroad at a French university.
Since college I lived and taught TEFL in Argentina, and started my own social enterprise travel agency that worked with NGOs in Latin America to send volunteers from the US to them. I have 2 years experience doing that.
I've independently taken Microeconomics and Statistics and took Macro as an undergrad.
I'm just worried because I don't have any direct experience in the development world. What are your thoughts on my chances?
