    Re: A PSA for Applicants and Academics

    It is a serious grind. I ended up doing counseling and some other things. You really need to focus a little on self care during the program.

    Re: Background for Finance PhD

    You probably need to take Calc 1-3, linear algebra, mathematical statistics, and probability theory before entering any of the programs you mention. I would try to take those through any local...

  6. Re: Profile evaluation - PhD accounting / finance

    Re: Another Profile Evaluation

    I think that a GMAT boost won't make a difference for most schools, but 750+ is probably necessary for your dream schools.

    Are you currently in the US? Community college courses in math are sufficient to show that you are working on picking up the needed skills.

    Re: Accounting PhD - Advice Needed
