Thank you so much for your response. It's nice to see someone respond who's in the same boat as I am and doesn't talk down to me like I am such 2 year old playing with blocks! Hahahaha.
I have come to the same conclusions as you have regarding the schools I've listed. Regarding my own personal situation, I do have an MPA from NYU but have been working in law firms in public finance securities (i.e. tender option bonds) for the last five to six years. My school loan debt is already fairly high from both undergrad and NYU so costs will become a major factor. Therefore, I think FIU is the front runner for me in Florida since the in-state tuition is incredibly low and I can live at home with the parents (that should be interesting).
I am still waiting on the following schools:
3 more T3's: Loyola-New Orleans, Akron, Arkansas-Little Rock
2 more T4's: Duquesne and New England
1 more T2: Louisville
Oh yes, my numbers are 147/3.30. I wrote a great statement about my historically low standardized test scores and how they've not predicted low academic performance. Some schools have bought it, others have not.
What are your numbers and where else are you applying?
