    Where has your university placed in the past? I am pretty sure I had someone in my accounting cohort from your same Uni, so there is probably history.

    Overall, it looks like you have all of the basic boxes checked, but there is a lot of noise in the process, so I would apply widely in the top 50.

    Regarding Finance Phd, I've seen top 50-ish placements directly from BA or MA here. The ones who took Masters from top US schools have placed in some decent schools in US and UK. Anyways thank you for your advice! (and sorry for the late reply)
