The China trip isn't for leisure, I'll be taking two courses there, and possibly a stats class online from a comm college here in the States. I'm basically done with undergrad, aside from taking Algebra next semester and an elective to raise my major GPA at my university. The courses I'm taking in addition to those are related to the aforementioned grad program I'm interested in (I have a "in" with the program at my university), and I'm taking those at a local comm college. My problem is that I got serious about my future a little too late, and now have to mire through the mess I made in years past. It sucks.
Someone said you were a URM if you are disregard the following advice.
If you aren't a URM, then I'd apply to Georgetown and Cornell as super reaches. Then I'd apply to as many schools from WUSTL to the end of the T1, as you can. Make sure to include Illinois and Indiana, because they love splitters. Indiana will almost without a doubt take you with a 166+.
But you'll have to work your ass off. You'll need to be top of the class to get good job placement out of those schools.
