Re: Profile evaluation PhD OB / Behavioral Science / Management
As someone applying now to mostly OB programs (though from a Sociological perspective), I can say that you have a very strong profile. You might have already applied, so it doesn't really matter
At any rate, education is a journey of personal development - it led you to a related masters. If you showed this you're good.
You're GRE is great - as a non-native speaker myself, a 5.5 AW is amazing (I got a 4.5). You're research experience is awesome as well. But I'm sure you know this
I'll tell you what I was told by a professor from a top program - they get about 200 applicants for OB and can accept 3. Out of these 50 are great. Maybe 15 are amazing. There are a bunch of factors that you can control (e.g., faculty fit, SOP strength) and some you can't (e.g., luck, they want to give students to younger faculty). So we need to do what we can, apply to enough schools, and hope for the best. Xanthus said that top10 schools are always a crap-shoot.
Regarding adding schools - the consensus here on the forums is that you should only add schools that if accepted to them and only them, you still will be excited to go. That should be your consideration. The effort and expense it takes to apply to two more schools if marginal.
Good luck! Maybe we will see each other in the end
