Hello! I recently completed my undergraduate studies and was going to apply to Msc programs at LSE as well as other development programs in London (SOAS, UCL). Here's some of my academic background:

Undergraduate major: Economics and Spanish
GPA: 3.79 (3.85+ in the last two years)
GRE: Yet to take, but am studying right now. I will only submit if I score 90%+

Work experience
:
- 1 year internship with an NGO, based on social justice in El Salvador
- 1 year internship with a youth-based organization (focused on increasing awareness of international issues, making work-shops and creating programs for young leaders)
- 3 months mentoring/tutoring refugees
- 6 months research assistant to a professor at my undergraduate institution (research topics: wealth inequality, credit market in the US)
- I will also be volunteering at a non-profit in Nepal, focusing on women's rights and economic empowerment for a few months.

The specific programs I am interested in the UK are:
- LSE MSc Political Economy of Late Development
- LSE MSc Social Policy and Development
- SOAS MSc Development Studies

Any feedback/help is appreciated!
