OCTOBER 2020 EXAMHello Is there anyone that has registered to sit the October exam? Is there anyone who will be flying to the US from other countries, particularly the UK? How is everyone feeling due to the COVID19 situation, do you think they will cancel the exam? I would love to buddy up with someone to study or just to discuss and offer advice/help during this time!
Profile Evaluation: PhD in Finance
TreetopTom posted a topic in PhD in BusinessHi new friends! First, thank you for taking the time to review my profile and hopefully give me some actionable insights. I appreciate having this new community! Test Scores (GMAT/GRE): GMAT 730. Q47 (61 percentile), V42 (96 percentile). I know that the score is great, but I am worried that my quant score may be a strike against me. Undegrad GPA: 4.0 at Arkansas State University, with a major in Finance and Marketing Analytics. Again, I know that the 4.0 will help me, but my school's pedigree isn't going to knock anyone over. Graduate GPA: No graduate degree. I'm in my senior year of undergrad and hoping to go straight in. Research Experience: I am working on my undergraduate thesis now, on evaluating the impact of FDIC-assisted acquisitions on bank performance. Teaching Experience: As part of my extracurricular involvement, I was essentially a teaching assistant for a handful of classes at Arkansas State designed to help our first year students acclimate to college. It is not very relevant to my field, and most of what I did was managing and mentoring my students, not teaching per se. Work Experience: I spent my junior year as a bank teller. I interned as a bank examiner trainee for the FDIC before my senior year, and I have a job offer from the FDIC, which is currently serving as my back-up plan if this doesn't work out like I want it to. Concentration Applying to: Finance, Banking Number of programs planned to apply to: 10-15. Dream Schools: Columbia, Indiana, Ohio State, North Carolina. Other Questions: I am generally unsure how my application stacks up, and I am not sure what schools I should target. I would ideally like to get an idea of what a reach, target, and safety school range looks like. What made you want to pursue a PhD? I love learning, and even more than that, I love teaching. I love having the chance to mentor younger student and watch them develop and grow, and helping people learn new things is exciting for me. I am also deeply interested in business and banking, and I would love to make a contribution to the field. Questions or concerns you have about your profile? How much does my quant score and lack of graduate/work experience hurt me? What can I do to shore up those sides of my application? Any additional specific questions you may have: No comments, I just appreciate you folks! Any feedback or tips would be tremendously helpful. I am probably not interested in applying to any top-10 programs, but I would like to go somewhere solid and respectable. I am also happy to talk about it more with anyone!
Happy Valentine's Day
