  1. Test Scores: 167 Quant (92%) / 162 Verbal (91%) / 3.5 Writing (42%) Undegrad GPA: 3.67 Major in Finance, Cum Laude, Honors College, pretty involved on campus, I've done about 4 math classes in college with Calc I and then 3 levels of statistics (1 of those was at the graduate level) Graduate GPA: 3.63 Finance, with a concentration in Financial and Risk Management, done as a dual degree so I got my Masters of Science in Finance at the same time as I got my Bachelor's Research Experience: I did a thesis for my masters which focused on machine learning compared to technical analysis, it was fun but nothing groundbreaking Teaching Experience: I did R program workshops and excel workshops so I had to pick up on some minor teaching experience, but nothing major Work Experience: I had an internship with a newspaper (highschool), a courthouse, one with a wealth management firm, and then for about 3 years while I was in school I worked at a computer lab on campus helping out with basic software support Concentration Applying to: Finance Schools applying to: Imperial College University of Mannheim Columbia University of Reading URI Drexel Newcastle University NYU If you guys have any advice at all for me about whether I should be aiming for lower schools or anything like that, please let me know!

  2. Hi there! I was wondering if I could get some advice about what kind of chance I stand with Ph.D. Admissions. GPA Undergrad and Grad: 3.6 GRE: 167Q/162V/3.5A I have recommendations from my thesis advisor from my MS in Finance and from the finance department chair who I spent a lot of time with setting up my dual degree program so that I could graduate with both a BBA and Masters in Finance. As for math classes and the like, I've taken Calc, and then 3 different levels of statistics, the last of which was grad level statistics. I'm extremely stressed because you look at the admissions numbers and they're like "Yeah we get 5000 applicants but we only like to admit about 2" so I have no idea if I'm applying to schools where I have a chance or not! The schools where I'm applying are: Imperial College University of Mannheim Columbia University of Reading University of Rhode Island Drexel University Newcastle University NYU Are these reasonable schools for me? Or am I aiming too high? I'm so stressed, please help me.
