Re: Evaluation or Suggestion for Schools to Apply to Accounting PhD (backgroun incl)
A 750 GMAT, decent GPA, and CPA with 4 years experience will get you admitted somewhere decent. The GMAT quant will be a problem at some schools. I can't really say which ones, besides top 10 or so.

Experimental research does require less math because you can make assumptions that do away with some tough problems, but I wouldn't choose it just because of that factor. 3. It's fine to be open to experiments and financial. Plenty of schools do both.
I'm assuming you are planning on applying this season. The best thing you can do is look through all of the programs you can find and apply to the ones that seem interesting. I will help get you started with some good schools that do experiments and archival work:
I'm sure there are more. Look at the BYU rankings for overlap between the methodologies.
