Hi!
I am seriously wondering whether i should retake Gre or not due to the verbal score. I will apply next year for 2020 admission. Although i have enough time to prepare for Gre, I was so stressful to pour my efforts only for better Gre score.
I hope someone here can help me making a decision on GRE and evaluate my profile for my target schools. Thank you.

Concentration Applying to:
Marketing Quant (focusing my research interest into structural modelling)


Target Schools: Yale, Michigan, Wharton, UCLA, U Toronto

I have a question as to which courses may be helpful for structural modelling. As far as I know, Empirical IO is the most fundamental course for structural modelling and hot issue in Marketing. what else courses are fundamental, necessary, complementary or helpful? I come up with some courses like Game theory, Information economics but do not have an idea on what extent these courses is helpful.
