I graduated in May, and have been working as a Business Analyst since, but have realized that I would really like to go back to school for a PhD in Economics. Here is what I have: 3.01 Overall GPA BS in Mathematics from Penn State BS in Economics from Penn State Minor in Statistics from Penn State Will be taking the GRE soon, but am confident in a high score as I scored 217 and 2190 on PSAT and SAT respectively Can obtain 2 strong letters of rec, 1 decent I know that trying to get in with a GPA this low is tough, but I was hoping that it would be somewhat offset by my extensive math coursework. Also, I've heard that having a year of real life work experience is beneficial. So, do I stand a chance of getting into any PhD programs (they don't have to be top programs, but not online programs either)? If so, any ideas on what/where I should be looking at? Thanks in advance
