Hello everyone, I'm looking at doing a Marketing PhD in the behavioral track. My profile is as below: GMAT (2015): 770 (Verbal 44, Quant 50) | TOEFL: 116 Undergrad: Aerospace Engineering with 5 semesters of Maths (incl. Statistics, Probability, Calculus) GPA 9.15/10 Grad: MBA from a Top-3 Indian B-school (with 2 semesters of Probability & Statistics, apart from basic Consumer Research Methodology and Introduction to Consumer Behavior/Psychology) GPA: 3.24 / 4.33 (Exchange term in the US, GPA 3.8) Relevant Work Experience: 2.5 years in marketing at India-based online retailer, with exposure to offline & online marketing and consumer research Academic Research Experience: Limited to course projects as part of the MBA I have a few questions, could someone please help me with this? I realise that I might be too late to build a good application for 2018. What can I do now to make a worthy application for 2019? I'm concerned that my lack of research experience is a drawback. Does my work experience give any weight to my application? Do I have a realistic chance of getting into the top 20 / 50 schools in UTD rankings? I've been told that before applying, I must ask the Professors I'm viewing as potential advisers whether they're taking any PhD students that year or not. On the other hand, some people say you don't choose your advisers until later in the program, so it doesn't matter right now. How does this really work? Thanks you so much! :)
