  1. Thanks a lot for your reply! A pre-phd program is similar to a research-oriented master. Students in a pre-phd program can choose phd-level courses more freely and they usually want to apply for phd afterwards.
  2. I have a general question. When it comes to quantative marketing track, it seems that a lot of marketing departments prefer candidates with a math degree or computer science degree. If I don't have one, does it mean that I am less likely to be admitted? Is there any quantative marketing Ph.d. in Emory who has a different background? To be more specific, my undergraduate major is marketing, and I am currently in a pre-phd program. I have taken many of the phd-level statistics and econometric courses. Will this kind of technical training (not a degree in math related area) considered when you make the decision? or you just pick up those who have a statistics or operation management degree. Thanks a lot for your time!
  3. Thanks! I really don't want take GMAT again. :tup:
  4. Hi, everyone, My GMAT score is 760+4.5, I am not very satisfied with my writing score. Is the low score of writing part a problem in applying Ph.D. in top schools? thanks!
  5. Thanks, Behavioral. As this is my first year in the program and I still have some time to think about my application, your advice help me a lot to plan my next step. I took Calc I-III, LA and probability theory when I was an undergraduate. Although I got nearly full marks in those three, I don't think it's enough. I am seriously considering a economic master now. In addition, I am applying an exchange to Tilburg University (in the Netherlands), and ideally, I may take a lot of courses in economics major there. Hope this could help. I really I don't want to spend another 2 years in a master program. :(
  6. Hi, everyone. I really love this forum because everyone here is nice and a lot of people are dedicated to helping new members. I am here to seek advice on my problems. I want to do modeling in marketing, but the problem is that I don't have a solid mathematic background. My undergraduate major is marketing and I am currently in a pre-PHD program that is also in marketing department. Since I don't want to do CB just because I want to get admitted by a top B-school, I am considering attending more math-related courses such as advanced econometrics, to make up for my weakness. Will this kind of strategy work? What else can I do? Is it possible for applicants who have similar backgrounds to be admitted as marketing modeling PHD in top B-schools? Thanks for any suggestion!
