Profile Evaluation: Marketing (CB) Phd: Which colleges do you suggest.
Dear All fellow members,
I have been following this forum for past four years, was waiting for the right moment to post something kije wahat i am posting right now.
I will be applying for a marketing Phd in 2013. I have done everything that i read was important to make my profile attractive, Though i missed on a great GMAT score, but heard a lot, that 10-20 points here there may not affect too much...anyways here is my profile
My profile -
GMAT- 690 (Quant 51(98%ile) Verbal 33(65%ile))
Post Grad:MBA Marketing- From one of the better colleges in India (it is not IIMs, but say may come in top 30 college)
Undergraduate: Bachelor in commerce with a GPA of 3.2
Research experience/Publication: Have 2 International publications and one national publication as of yet. Few papers are in process and will most probably get published in reputed journals by the end of the year. Have been doing research since past 3 years. Initially was working as a research analyst in Deloitte for 6 Months. There on working as a part time research assistant to a professor at IIM.
Conference Attended: One Academic conference in IIM Banglore attended
Work Experience: 1. Currently working in an MBA college as an Assistant Professor in Marketing. College is listed in top 30 colleges in Asia. I am working here from past 2.5 years
2. Worked at ACC Ltd as a Marketing Manager for one year (corporate job)
3. Worked as Research analyst at Deloitte Touchmatsu for Six months
LORs: 1. From a reputed Professor, from where I have done my MBA. Very Strong letter of recommendation
2. One from IIM Professor in Marketing, Well known and very strong too
3. From the director of the institute I am currently teaching and researching, Very strong letter
Interest Areas: I have an affinity towards Consumer behavior. I dont want to pin point on any particular topic, as i believe that my interest may evolve once i get into a program. Few areas i am interested are: Consumer Decision Making, Values and consumer behavior, Consumer Information Processing
Statistics & Research Subjects: I have been teaching Statistics in the college as a replacement faculty for a professor, so i have a very good command in SPSS & other research/statistics related tools & Softwares (SPSS etc)
SOP: It is a well written SOP. One professor from IIM helped me in framing the same.
Weaknesses I Know: 1. GMAT a tad lower side, Now i can give a retake on the exam, but i dont want to mess up my Quanta score. My Verbal should have been better, But thats the way it is
2. Low Undergrad GPA
Which colleges to apply??? I am looking for colleges in USA & Canada. I have few colleges in my Mind. But want some senior members to help me in guiding 12-15 colleges.
A Phd is compulsary for Me, I have to get into a Program, So I would like to have few college, which have a higher chance of selecting me. ;-)
I Hope i have furnished all the necessary details regarding the profile. Help is highly anticipated...Thank You all in Advance...
