-graduating ug this year; took about 8 yrs off and on
-steady, decent public service work experience
-lots of w's/d'/c's on transcript - some semesters are 4.0, others are 2.5 - def have a grade addendum
where should i aim? any idea how my transcript will play out?
would love to remain on the east, but no further than the midwest.
With that combination, you should blanket the t-14, even schools that are farther west than you would like to travel. To be fair, if you haven't gotten your application package together yet (personal/diversity statements, letters of rec, transcripts, etc.) it may be difficult to get apps out before xmas break. With that in mind, it may behoove you to wait until next cycle so you are not scrambling to turn in an application that may come out less than perfect. However, if you can submit this soon during this cycle (like before xmas soon) then by all means cast a wide net.
