Research/Teaching : I have been teaching (mathematics and statistics to business students) in my home country since undergraduate.Worked on data analysis with a research institute..Was TA for Undergrad Micro and Macro at my MA institution.
Concerns : There was a considerable gap between my Undergrad and MA (about 7 years).The work I did back home didn't entail much of research experience.Also, don't have perfect gpa at phd level courses.
Looking for : Absolutely hardcore honest opinion where I have a chance, given the tough adcom cycles and my choppy profile and lack of research.
Thanks so much to all of you
