Hello PF, I'm currently an undergrad electrical engineering student at a large state university. I am hoping very much to go to graduate school, either for further development of my EE skills, or for something different such as economics. My situation is this: I will be a fifth-year senior this fall. I have a 3.08 GPA after having a 2.6 freshman year as a journalism major (partied far too much), and junior year I had a very poor fall in my first semester taking basic circuits, diffeq, etc. (2.5 semester GPA; I was distracted). I have since undergone much maturation and I've applied myself to the tune of a 3.3 last fall and a 3.9 in the spring in upper-level ECE courses. I am very confident that I will score in >= 90th percentile on the GRE, both quantitative and verbal. I am currently working on an internship, and I'm hoping to parlay my experience into a research position this fall. I'm worried that I will not be able to gain admission to a good-quality graduate program with my resume. I would greatly appreciate advice from those experienced in graduate education or with anecdotal advice from a friend or colleague.
