    Re: Backup Universities for 2020 in US

    I think we'd need more info about where you applied, what department(s) etc. before we could provide constructive input. Rankings are quite subjective, but of course there's a lot of competition at...
  2. Re: Concurrent PhDs in 2 countries and 2 universities

    There's no way this will turn out well. Doing one PhD is hard enough. Pour those extra hours (if there are any) into 1) self-care 2) research. Better to do one high quality thesis with some an...

    Re: Profile Eval [Engineering Undergrad, MBA]

    I did engineering undergrad (but never used it because I joined the military after graduation). Then I did an MBA and worked in marketing for three years before joining a PhD program. Take this...
  4. Re: Profile Evaluation: Organizational Behavior/ Human Resource Management

    The GMAT score is going to be on the low side but not completely insurmountable. Even schools outside the top 20-30 have average GMATs in the 720ish range. More than anything, a compelling story...
  5. Re: 1st year Econ phd student in her early 30s looking to move to strategy programs

    Quite a few schools have Econ PhDs on the strategy faculty. One example: Strategic Management & Entrepreneurship Department | Carlson School of Management
  6. Re: Reject PhD offers and re-apply in this December?

    The schools you were accepted to are not bad schools. There are "better" schools, yes, but how much impact will a year's worth of RA work have on your applications? I can't answer that question for...
  7. Re: How are those of you with no business background preparing to start your PhD?

    I worked for 10 years (at associate, manager and director levels) before the PhD. Being successful in the PhD doesn't require practical business knowledge (though it helps). Most "business" books...

    Re: please advice! Which PhD program to attend?

    Criteria like exams and first year/second year papers shouldn't really make a difference. The PhD is really hard, wherever you go. You'll rise to the occasion wherever you are.

    Re: Anyone applying to UNC?

    I applied last year. They were on a bit of a later schedule than most schools but they moved quickly. I got an invite for an interview in Mid-March and an offer a couple days later.

    Re: Profile Evaluation: PhD in Marketing

    I scored 166V/164Q and got into Michigan, got to phone/skype interviews at Harvard and Cornell (but ultimately didn't get offers). GRE isn't everything. With your unique background, if you write a...

    Re: Profile Evaluation: PhD in Marketing

    Re 2: I applied to about 12 schools. Something like 4 in top 10, about 4 in top 30, 3 in top 50, 1 in top 100. Bit of a shotgun approach but it worked for me. I was a bit of a nontraditional...

    Re: Profile Evaluation 2019

    Without going into too much detail, I had about 10 years work experience but not really in a related field. Accepted to Michigan, Minnesota, GT, UNC and a few others. Rejected from Wharton, MIT,...

    Re: Profile Evaluation 2019

    Your GRE quant score should be enough to get you in the door, but you could try to retake. My list was similar to yours and I had the same GRE score. Got into two of those schools, rejected by...
  14. Re: Profile Evaluation PhD in Strategy (700 GMAT)

    Can't speak for every school, but most seem to be pretty math heavy the first few years (stats, econ, etc). If you're shooting for a T50 program, I think you should definitely work to get the quant...

    Re: Profile evaluation: PhD in Marketing (CB)

    What you've shared puts you in the zone for top 10 schools, should get you to the Skype interview round if you have a good statement of purpose.
