What made you want to pursue a PhD?
Born in China, lived in South Korea and the US. As a 1st gen immigrant working in corporate America, I feel very restricted and find it so hard to be a high skilled immigrant worker who wants to contribute. Very passionate about the topic of engagement of high skilled immigrant workers in the developing world, acculturation process; also the digital nomad trend among the current generation
crave for intellectual challenge and freedom to learn on a daily basis
need freedom to learn rather than a set schedule
Questions or concerns you have about your profile?
low undergrad GPA
low GMAT IR Section score, does that matter?
I have a low score in my statistics class in my undergrad in 2012, will the adcom look at individual class scores?
Any additional specific questions you may have:
I have strong interest in European schools, but want to work in the US after graduation, do schools like IESE and INSEAD get good recognition in the US job market?
Is there a community for OB specific applicants for 2019? especially intl students in the US?
