    I was wondering how strict LSE's GPA requirements are. I am thinking of applying to the LSE-PKU program and IR. My stats are as follows:

    Undergrad: BA in History from Yale University
    GPA: 3.37 (3.6 in History and IR)
    Work Experience: 2 years at Education technology firm in Beijing
    Language Skills: Advanced Mandarin

    Do I have a shot? Know of anyone with similar stats? Any help would be appreciated. Would taking the GRE/GMAT strengthen my application even though neither is required?

    The main problem is that you're fairly late in the application cycle. The LSE-PKU deadline has already gone (31 Jan), and IR is one of the programmes that closes the soonest.
