recommend a grad school in Indiana?
I had a double major degree in Telecommunications (video production) and English (Creative Writing) My GPA was like 3.1 My average grades in Creative Writing were like C+. TCOM grades were like B+. I went to Ball State but I think that if a school like Ball State who takes in people with low GPAs must have really low quality graduate school programs. I'm thinking of maybe going into grad school for Urban Planning. Much to my ultimate horror Ball State is the only university in Indiana with such a program. My parents are not very supportive of the idea of grad school at all due to expenses so they will probably only make the exception for a school near Indianapolis like IUPUI or something like that. I have extremely sucky social skills which prevent me from getting normal jobs. I am mostly wanting to do grad school for more internship experience. Recommend me any school and/or program. Perhaps a program where an average grade student with fine arts experience would be interested in. Seeing that pursuing careers in video making and writing are all for nought. Nickname: I graduated with a BA in Creative Writing and Telecommunications. I have no interest in pursuing grad degrees in these areas since I've come to learn (only after graduating) that no one succeeds in getting careers in these areas (no one like me anyway). I'm looking for programs where I am guaranteed a good job. Urban Planning sounded like one that catered to my interests and seems good paying but I am worried as to whether or not I am skilled enough to survive this program. Though for quite a while I have been considering IU Bloomington's Tcom grad program (because Ball State only has one tcom program that doesnt cater to my interests or is helpful in finding a job).

Google your major and then find out which programs nationally or in the midwest offer your discipline. You may find then that certain ones also fund their graduate students. That's how I went to grad school.

If, as you have already found, Ball State is the only grad school in Indiana that offers Urban Planning, then that doesn't give you any choices. If you choose to change your grad major, then Indiana University and Purdue University might have appropriate programs. University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN, is a... More
