With the job market the way it is, I've been thinking about going back to grad school sooner than previously anticipated. I'd always liked Urban Planning and constantly kept an eye on construction and development in the cities I've lived in, so I am pretty sure that is where I'd like to go with a career. I'd like to concentrate on Environmental or Transportation planning (probably Environmental).
Anyway, I went to UW-Madison, graduated with a degree in History, although I took calc, stats, finite math, and four economics courses. I took the GRE after my junior year and did badly - 720Q/480V/4.5 despite never getting below 650V on any of my Kaplan or official practice tests (and despite being constantly praised for my writing throughout college). My GPA was a 3.3, with a 3.5 in major. I have no experience and very little way of proving I am interested in urban planning.
Thanks for any info! I want to know what to shoot for. I am thinking the CU-Denver, UC-Irvine, etc type school since I am not exactly Type A anyway.
