Hi all! I live in Florida, will be graduating from the Univ. of Florida this December '04 with a Bachelor's in Political Science (unfortunately my GPA is pretty low!). I am interested in Urban Planning and have taken a few undergrad classes in Urban Planning and focused on Policy within in my major. I know that having a Master's is pretty much industry standard, so I have researched the Master's programs in the state, as staying in state would be cheapest. I still have yet to take the GRE and was wondering:
1) Has anyone on the site attended and/or graduated from a Master's Program in the state (UF, FSU, or FAU) and how was your experience with admissions, the program and life after graduation.
2) Does anyone have any advice for a graduating undergrad with a low GPA (o.k. I'll go ahead and broadcast it - 2.2), besides acing the GRE.
Please, don't hold back!!!
