    I'm a student from the U.S. looking to move to London in Sept. 2017 for a postgraduate program. I've been really stuck in terms of which universities I should be considering. My U.S. GPA is 3.27 right now, and I'm expecting to graduate in two months with a GPA of 3.35. Any advice on which universities I should apply to with the GPA I have?

    Have a look at Kings College London and SOAS

    LSE is probably the best but I think you'd need a higher GPA and it's ridiculously competitive.

    Have you got any work experience etc?

    Thanks for the advice. I have interned at a refugee non-profit organization for four months but that's about it. I'm looking into doing one more internship in D.C. this Spring. Do you think this would help?

    Also, I've been told since I did not attend a top-notch uni here in the U.S. - just a generally "good" university - my GPA of 3.35 would probably not suffice for getting into LSE or King's College. Do you know any other universities I should consider?

    Definitely, the more experience the better as it will show a passion for the subject.

    Out of interest, where do you attend?

    I still think you should apply to Kings just to see. If you did get admission that would be great.

    You could also look at:
    - City University London
    - Royal Holloway
    - Queen Mary

    I attend University of Texas at Arlington. It's not the easiest university to get into but also not a top uni here.

    I appreciate your advice! I really do hope so.

    Look outside London.

    Consider Bristol, Sussex and Manchester.
