I'm just beginning my senior year at a state research university. It's by no means prestigious, but I've got a 3.78 GPA and I'm certain I can secure a good GRE score (~150-165) because of strong test-taking skills. I'll be getting my BA w/honors in International Studies in May, but I want to take some time off to work before pursuing an MA in Global Affairs, and I've decided Yale is the institution I want to attend.
My work plans so far are Peace Corps (just received my invitation!), but I'm wondering if you all would have suggestions on how to strengthen my resume before applying. What should I do in the next 5 years to better my chances of acceptance?
