What are my Chances of getting into NYU's Graduate IR/Journalism program
So I took the GRE back in December and got a very unimpressive 1220 w/ a 4.5 writing score. I got a cumulative 3.35 from Florida International University, and graduated with 2 BA's in journalism and lit. I've worked at MTV Latinamerica, reported from the International AIDS Conference in Mexico City for the Global Youth Coalition Against AIDS and MTV, been published in Editor and Publisher Magazine, worked at a Scripps Newspaper up in Stuart FL, and written for my school newspaper. I was also co-producer for an online documentary on HIV/AIDS in South Florida which featured in The Miami Herald's website. I am currently an Americorps:Public Allies volunteer and will be working with the Media and Communication subcommittee for the up and coming International AIDS Conference in VIenna this summer. I am fluent in Spanish, English, and Italian.
Front runners are: NYU, Columbia, American University, George Washington University and the LSE. Any recommendations for schools in Europe are welcome for Programs in the International Relations/Public Health/Journalism department
A few things I am very curious/concerned about: Can my resume make up for my unimpresive GPA? Should I ever disclose that the reason I have a 3.3 was because of an unfortunate outbreak of seizures my freshman year in college and the subsequent stress of overmedication which lasted 2 years 1/2? What are my odds right now? I really don't want to take the GRE again. Thanks all!:s
