I am applying to Oxford's Master of Public Policy.
I would like to ask your opinion about my application:
***BA Social Sciences from top french "Grande Ecole" with a major in Euro-Asian studies. equivalent of 1st class honours
Quantitative 159/82% (750 on old GRE)
Verbal 163/94% (650 on old GRE)
***8 month volunteering experience in education/development NGO
***year long internship in a top think-tank specialized in international relations
***Grew up in Senegal, studied in France and China
***Bilingual in French, English, Wolof, intermediate level in Spanish and Chinese
My questions are the following:
----while my grades in my Bachelor are equivalent to a 1st class honours when converted, I failed two minor subjects during my last term in university. All my other grades are A and A- except these two. Do you think it is worth applying, or will they not even consider my application?
---do you think my profile is anywhere near to getting an offer with scholarship from Oxford?
---would my chances to earn a scholarship increase with more work experience?
