  3. Re: 2015 PhD Business Administration Admissions/Waiting/Sweating thread

    You can add us to that list if we weren't there already. We frequently stick with only one or two students when not all of our first-round offers are accepted.
  4. Re: 2015 PhD Business Administration Admissions/Waiting/Sweating thread

    To clarify, this is not the view of everyone here. I, in fact, disagree with about everything levycyrus wrote.

    Re: my experience with finance interviews

    I'm not sure if I would count a detailed question about a paper you have written a "technical question." When I think of a technical question, I think of something like, "What is the definition of a...

    Re: What I can do now

    Be patient. Being on 3 waitlists signals that you're around the dish. Unfortunately, the market doesn't clear until the middle of April. Good luck.

    Re: Profile evaluation for Finance PhD in US

    It seems like you have a good background. But you're unlikely to get many people to tell you where you would be a good fit. You'll have to do this research yourself. There are more than a few...

    Re: Chicago Booth Finance vs Yale Econ

    Maybe to your grandma, but not to anyone in finance academia.. Booth has been, and will continue to be the show. You can't turn down that offer.

    A hearty congrats and best of luck!
  11. Re: Scheduled a campus visit which is no longer necessary

    I'm pretty sure they won't pay for your ticket if you don't go on the visit. If I were the program director, I would be fairly insulted if someone asked me to reimburse them. I also had a visit...

    Re: Technical questions during PhD interviews

    I can see if you are undergrad finance major, knowing about efficient markets, M&M and the CAPM, but I'm not sure many undergrads get exposure to the Black-Scholes model. To questions like this, I...
