    Re: Finance Ph.D Profile Evaluation

    Your profile seems to be strong, so I think you are ok with the top 50. But, as usual, rankings are far from being the only factor (or the best one) to choose schools to apply. If there are schools...
  2. Re: Should I emphasize location pref. in response to the question "why this program?"

    schools want to make sure students will finish the program and that a local student (all else being equal)

    The assumption of "all else being equal" is a risky one here. Someone here at my school...
  3. Re: Profile Eval - Finance PhD - Prof Says Don't Worry about 160 Quant GRE?

    "If a school's deadline is January 1st, will they have reviewed every application by February 1st?"

    Not necessarily so, but they should be very advanced in the process, since things start to heat...
  4. Re: Profile Eval - Finance PhD - Prof Says Don't Worry about 160 Quant GRE?

    Schools may accept scores after the deadline (hard to be sure if they will, of course). But they should get the scores before they review the applications. February/March is too late for that.

    If...
  5. Re: Profile Eval - Finance PhD - Prof Says Don't Worry about 160 Quant GRE?

    ... continuing our conversation from Reddit... lol

    Yeah, your GRE score is kinda low, especially for Finance. I recommend you to really prepare for the GRE, then retake the exam. And/or try the...

    Re: CV Format

    I don't think the CV is the place for that. My professional experience also defined my research interests. But my Statement of Purpose explained it, not my CV.

    When I see the CV of my professors,...

    Re: CV Format

    You wrote that your "professional experience is more relevant". Why is that more relevant? Is it that relevant for your application, or for the school? Maybe you're trying to make your professional...

    Re: GMAT 730, should I retake?

    I don't think it's worth retaking the GMAT. As long as it's still valid, you should be ok (I remember GMAT scores have a validity of 5 years, I don't remember if they should still be valid by the...
  10. Re: When should I expect Finance PhD result to come out

    By acceptance, I mean an applicant accepting an offer he/she received. So, 55% had already received an offer, and also had already confirmed that they accepted the offer.

    Offers usually start...
  11. Re: When should I expect Finance PhD result to come out

    I don't remember anymore. I applied to 20 schools, and my guess is that approximately half of them gave me a definitive answer by March 1-2.

    There is a first wave of rejections, because...
  12. Re: When should I expect Finance PhD result to come out

    Interviews start to heat up mid-February, but they can happen much later too. And getting an interview doesn't mean getting an offer right after that, you usually have to wait a little.

    I think...
  13. Re: Application Advice for Non-traditional Applicant

    Ok, I will not tell you clearly and exactly what the reason was, as that involve other people too.

    But it's something like this. Let's say that we have the same research interests, ok? That's...
  14. Re: Application Advice for Non-traditional Applicant

    All right, then you don't need more letters.

    At least in Marketing, I don't think having prior research experience in Marketing would be considered a classic route. The diversity of backgrounds...
  15. Re: Application Advice for Non-traditional Applicant

    First Question:
    You wrote you love to do marketing, and I think that's ok. Given tour profile, I think both Quantitative Marketing and Marketing Strategy would work for you.

    I'm in Quantitative...
