My Target Scores

Found 13 results

  1. Hi, I am from Pakistan. I have recently completed MS Industrial-Organizational Psychology. I seek evaluation and advice on how should I proceed with my PhD application for US. Previous Educational Track: BS (4 year) Psychology MS (2 Year) Industrial-Organizational Psychology Test Scores: GRE: V= 151 (51th percentile), Q =151 (41th percentile), AWA =3 (14th percentile) I wrote the GRE last year and I know these scores are not competitive. I am preparing for a GRE take again to improve these scores especially AWA score. Retake was delayed due to my research work and PhD applications in other countries. IELTS: Overall: 8 Band (Writing= 7, Speaking= 7.5, Listening = 8, Reading 8.5) Undergrad GPA: 3.51/4.00 Graduate GPA: 3.23/4.00 Research Experience: I have both qualitative and quantitative research experience, studied psychology (with a specific focus on industrial-organizational psychology) during my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, steered several research projects as part of degrees requirement as well as internships. More, I also performed in diverse work roles at various public-private organizations and extensively advised undergraduates in their research projects. Currently, one of my paper (based on MS thesis) is accepted for publication and two others are in the peer review process and I am hopeful regarding their acceptance. The targeted journals are well recognized locally. Quantitative analysis are my strongest points. I am proficient in complex quantitative analysis and statistical tools (e.g., Multilevel Regression, Multivariate and Path Analysis) Teaching Experience: No teaching experience so far Work Experience: I served in public sector before pursuing MS. I did two internships in HR (as HR Intern) and one in management consulting (as research intern) during my MS Concentration Applying to: Organizational Behavior (micro) Number of programs planned to apply to: Max 3 to 4 – Because I only want to work with those professors whose interests are relevant to mine. Dream Schools: Wharton (a Longshot with the scores I have) Beside that I will target only those universities where I can relate my work to advisor’s goals and efforts. Other Questions: What made you want to pursue a PhD? I am looking forward to advance my research in knowledge workers engagement and knowledge teams’ creativity (Yes, I am mentioning two of these interest areas but I am more inclined towards the later). I am not only interested in antecedent to these favorable outcomes but also the variables governing these processes. I consider PhD as the next step for my academic journey. I will surely move forward in academia after this because I like research work. Questions or concerns you have about your profile? I am lacking on the numbers side. GRE is not good so far and I need this whole month to at least move the needle on this test. Especially on Quant. AWA is ready and I expect to achieve 4.5 or above now. Other concerns are the GPA. They are not stellar by any means. I seek advice on what areas can I improve? Is retaking the GRE essential? Or should I spend more time on reading the work of professors whose work interest me and contact them with relevant material? (Because this take time) Your time and advice are highly valuable to me
  2. Hey everyone! I am applying for a master program that might potential help me transit into econ. I did psychology for my undergraduate but became more and more disenchanted about empirical studies in psych. I understand that it won't be possible for me to get into any prestigious econ program unless I can somehow prove my mathematical abilities with a Master degree. I am wondering if there is any Master program that is willing to take students with weak mathematical background but have strong Econ PhD outcome. I understand these two criteria are conflicting but any feedback will be greatly appreciated. I have been applying for a few applied stats program but I doubt that will be enough for a econ PhD. Type of Undergrad: 2 years in Top 10 University in China and 2 years in Top 15 in UK Undergrad GPA: 3.80/4.00 Type of Grad: BSc Psychology GRE: 169Q - 163V - 4.0W Math Courses: Calc Ⅰ,Ⅱ, Linear Algebra, Probability Theory, Introduction to Statistics, Regression Analysis, Structural Equation Model Computational Courses: C++, Matlab, R Research Experience: field study that estimates effects of different education intervention/polices on academic outcomes; Research Interests: Behav Econ, Labor Econ, Econometrics
  3. After I graduated with my bachelors, I have now worked for a few years doing research and writing outside of academia. I wrote a bestselling book on a niche industry, but most of my work has been published as white papers or in major media outlets. I'm trying to get a few journal papers published in time for PhD applications. My GRE scores are 165 V, 168 Q and I can get very positive LORs from my academic colleagues. I have a GPA of 3.8 with a psychology degree from a top-tier liberal arts college. However, I know my background is quite unconventional, and I didn't do anything remarkable during my undergraduate studies other than some volunteer RA work in psychology. What would a b-school think of this unorthodox background for a management/strategy/OB program? Is it important that I do something like an RA position with a b-school professor to improve my academic credentials?
  4. Hello, everyone. This is my first post on this forum, so I'm pretty new to a lot of things here. I currently live in South Korea and just recently made up my mind to apply for Graduate programs abroad. I'm currently thinking of applying for University of Toronto. Type of Undergrad: Seoul National University (South Korea) (Current) Undergrad GPA: 4.2/4.3 (Roughly translates to 98/100) (2 or 3 more semesters left until graduation) GRE, IELTS, TOEFL: (Currently Preparing) (Did take TEPS in 2016, 947 out of 990) Math Courses: Calculus for Humanities and Social Sciences 1 (A+) Mathematics for Economics (A+) Introductory Statistics for Economics (A+) Econ Courses: Principles of Economics 1 (A+) Principles of Economics 2 (A+) Macroeconomics (A0) Mathematics for Economics (A+) Introductory Statistics for Economics (A+) Microeconomics (A+) Introduction to Market Economy (Pass) Behavioral Economics (A+) Economic History (B+) (Currently attending Economics in Practice) (Planning on applying for Environmental Economics and Game Theory) Other Courses: I'm an Economics student and also studying two other majors. - Double Major in Business Management Principles in Accounting (A+) Principles in Management (A0) Management Information System (A0) Fundamentals of Economics for Management (A+) Organizational Behavior (A+) Human Resource Management (A+) (Currently attending Operations Management) (Planning on applying for Marketing Strategies, Management Forecasting, and Financial Management) - Minor in Psychology Psychology of Understanding Human Minds (A+) Social Psychology and Lab Experiments (A0) Introduction to Psychology (A+) Abnormal Psychology (A+) Organizational Psychology (A+) (Currently attending Perception of Self and Mind) (Planning on applying for Personality Psychology and Counseling Psychology) Letters of Recommendation: (Currently Contacting Professors) Other: - Was the club leader of an Economics Education Volunteer Program. Taught Middle School/ High School students economics and business strategies. (2 years) - Attended Peer Counselor Program. (1 semester) - Was a mentor in the School Mentoring Program for Foreigners. (1 semester) - Taught Mathematics at a Night School. (1 semester) Since it was a very recent decision to prepare for a Masters or PhD abroad, I'm pretty much lost in what to prepare first. I know I'm behind in Math courses, but in my school strangely enough Math courses outside of Economics weren't mandatory for graduation so I didn't feel the need to attend any more than needed. I also need to prepare for GRE(Goal of 165-165-5.5), IELTS(Goal of Average over 8), and/or iBT TOEFL(Goal of Total over 100). I want to further my studies in Behavioral Economics in my Graduate program. Assuming that my GPA will stay the same until graduation and I attend all of the mentioned courses, will I be able to apply for University of Toronto? Is there any other programs that I would be able to apply for? I'm really in need of urgent advice on what should be my priority before I graduate. Also I don't have any friends or seniors who I know that applied for a graduate program in America or Canada. I'm basically a blank slate so any kind of help would be appreciated. Thank you so much for reading this long post. Please tell me if I missed anything.
  5. Profile evaluation for Accounting PHD Fall 2018 Seeking advice on a proper range of schools for me. Thank you for reviewing my profile. Test Scores (GMAT/GRE): GMAT 720 TOEFL 105 Undegrad GPA: Accounting major in a university in China, 82/100 Graduate GPA: Master of Applied Psychology at Top2 University in China, GPA:B+(85-89/100) LOR: 1st, accounting professor, from my undergraduate study, doesn’t involve much in the academic research. 2, Psychology professor from my graduate school. 3, Social science professor from my graduate school. I took some of his research oriented PHD courses in social science and higher statistics courses. I want to use his LOR to prove that I have very strong statistical and programming background. Research Experience: Master’s dissertation about organizational behaviors. RA for the psychology professor about workplace stress and creativity research. Some PHD research seminar courses in management, social science and psychology. Some individual and group research projects about decision making and management. Courses: Maths and statistics: 2 Calculus course, 1 Linear Algebra, 1 probability theory and 1 statistics during undergraduate study. Higher statistics, data analytics, some data science and programming courses in R and Python at Graduate school. Work Experience: I have four years working experience as an accountant. My job included preparing the financial report and annual budget and general financial management such as internal control, management of fixed assets and internal audit. Concentration Applying to: Behavioral/Experimental Accounting I am interested in Behavioral/Experimental Accounting research, which draws not only on the accounting literature for both theory and methods, but also on the broader applied and social psychology literature. I think my background in psychology and accounting fits well in this research area. Dream Schools: Maybe...... University of Massachusetts Amherst Emory University Queens ........ I am not sure what range of schools I should target. Questions or concerns you have about your profile? 1st, I don't have research experience in accounting. My research experience is all about psychology and management. 2nd, Combination of Accounting and Psychology is a little wield background. Is my educational background proper for the PHD accounting program? 3rd, Since I don't have educational experience in US, I don't think I can target high. But there are not too many behavioral accounting phd programs and it is very difficult to select school. 4, Seeking advice on a proper range of schools for me. Thanks!
  6. John List and Anya Samek’s team at the University of Chicago / University of Southern California have several internships available this summer for outstanding undergraduate students in economics and related fields (all levels). Internships come with a small stipend. Internship location may be at the University of Chicago in Chicago, IL or the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, CA. The ideal student should be interested in behavioral economics and experimental methods, and will have a background in economics or a related field, such as psychology or public policy. The student should have excellent organizational skills and communication skills. Students who spend the summer with us will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic research team to carry out field experiments, including interacting with full time research staff and faculty at the center. Students will learn how to conduct field experiments, including subject recruitment, IRB approval, data collection and analysis. Broad areas of study that students may be involved in as part of this internship include health economics, economics of education and charitable giving. Most of your time will be spent “in the field,” for example, going door to door to raise money for charity and recording responses. Hence, ability and experience interacting with people in dynamic environments is a must. If you are interested, please contact David Jimenez-Gomez at bee2017internship@gmail.com. Please send a statement of interest and your CV. We have not finalized the location for our summer field experiments, therefore, we are currently recruiting assuming we may place you in either location (Chicago, IL or Los Angeles, CA). In your statement of interest, please indicate whether you have a preference for one city or the other, and whether you are willing to come to either city. Please also indicate whether you will have a car (students with cars will receive additional compensation for gas/mileage for driving to/from study sites).
  7. Just finished taking the GRE: 155v-——148q. I was a biology major, though I'm excited to be switching over to psychology for graduate school. I was wondering if anyone knew any good sources to study, seeing that most books are outdated due to the DSM V being released in 2013. The next edition by Kaplan is being released in June and the other publishers have bad ratings... Thanks in advance!
  8. Hi guys... I am interested in applying for business phd in marketing (CB) in future and just hoped to see if I can get some advice on choosing a masters program to apply for. I have relevant research experience in CB but to boost my profile (low undergraduate gpa), I'm considering doing masters first. I'm looking at LSE's MSc programs and am wondering which MSc program will be most beneficial... It seems MSc in Social Research Methods, MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology, MSc in Organizational and Social Psychology (and mayyyyyybe Msc in Health, Community, and Development) are potential matches.... And I'm leaning towards Social Research Methods because 1) I really feel like I've had good exposure to social and cultural psychology already and 2) I haven't learned these data analysis techniques, etc. that I'll learn through the Social Research Methods program. Alternatively, I'm also considering Organizational and Social Psychology since I don't know anything about org psych and think it'll be interesting... I think I'm pretty sure that I want to do Consumer Behavior rather than Organizational Behavior though, so I'm not sure if doing this program will be helpful. Curriculum wise, w/ Social Research Methods, students take 3 courses on research methods (quantitative analysis, qualitative research methods, fundamentals of social science research design) plus one elective (in psychology, etc) + dissertation, and w/ the other psychology MSc, students take two psychology classes plus one research methods class + dissertation... Would really appreciate your advice.... thank you!
  9. Newbie poster here. Two and a half years out of my undergrad, I feel slightly undereducated and am looking to further my education. Early stages here, but I'm wondering if I should set my sights on some kind of MBA or if an MS/PhD is worth looking into. I've reached out to former professors for advice to no avail (?!). Anyway I'm in a bit over my head with all the acronyms, abbrev., and so forth on this forum, so go easy on me, dear reader. Here are my stats: Undergrad: University of Wisconsin, BBA in marketing and international business. 3.83 overall GPA. Spring 2011. Haven't yet taken GMAT or GRE but I test well. Since finishing school, I've been working in entertainment (TV production) and, at present, tech (a start-up digital agency; I design and manage mobile web projects and the people who build them). My passion in school was branding because of the way it merged sociology and psych with marketing. For the past year I've been absorbing pretty much anything in that vein that I can get my hands on (Social Psych coursera classes, How We Decide, Nudge, The Social Animal, a bunch of published papers) and have generally become very interested in studying/working in the intersection between behavioral econ, marketing, and social psychology. An MBA doesn't appeal to me tons because I lack an employer who would pay for it and already took a boatload of business classes while getting my undergrad anyway. If I had to take managerial accounting again I don't know what I'd do. Some also say that MBA programs are just forums for business networking--that's not what I'm looking for. I want to dig in. Then again, I feel I lack the research experience and academic background (esp. quantitative--I took basic stats and business-kid Calc at Wisconsin) to get in to a PhD or Master's program. Any advice for a motivated but confused 24 year old? Thanks to any kind soul who made it to the bottom of this.
  10. Hi all! Here is some info on me: B.A. in Psychology and Spanish expected in May 2013 Honors in the Psychology Major GPA of 3.916 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (3.917 Psych) GRE: Verbal-166 (96%), Quantitative-154 (60%), AW 4.5 (73%) Total-320 Psych GRE results come out on Monday :dejected: Research experience in the Developmental field since January 2011 Currently finishing up my Senior Honors Thesis for which I had a $3000 grant Member of Psi Chi (National Honorary Society in Psych), Phi Kappa Phi, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and Phi Beta Kappa Applying to: Penn State, the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, Northwestern University, Northern Illinois University, Loyola University of Chicago, the University of Maryland, the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Thanks in advance for your help! :)
  11. I'm new to forums, so if this is in the wrong sections, I apologize! I've managed to graduate undergrad, with a Bachelor's in Psychology at age 19. My cumulative GPA was a 3.78, and I was a member of my college's National Honor's Society, Psi Chi National Honor's Society, and other various clubs on campus. I completed an internship, and also, studied abroad for a semester... ...unfortunately, the GRE attacks me. I cannot seem to perform impressively. I took the GRE when I was 18, and scored: Verbal: 340 (18%) Quant: 440 (16%) Analytical: 4.0 (48%) ...YUCK! :wallbash: These scores have deterred me from applying to graduate schools, until I could re-take the test. I studied for a couple months, and my "study," I mean, I spent HOURS studying for WEEKS. So, I just took it again this past Wednesday, and received: Verbal: 152 (56%) Quant: 148 (44%) Analytical: N/A, yet Needless to say, even though the test has been revised, according to my percentile score, I drastically improved...? Unfortunately, my scores are STILL not impressive. My question is, I suppose, is it worth the time and money to enroll in a class, and take the GRE for the THIRD time? Or - should I just settle with my current scores, and start applying to graduate schools. My dream is to one day obtain a PhD in Clinical Psychology, but this field is extremely competitive, and I feel like graduate schools will have a look at my GRE scores, and toss my application, without considering my academic performance. Also, I don't know if it will look bad to have three GRE scores, even if the third one improves? I intend on applying to both PhD programs and Master's programs. Does anyone have any suggestions, experiences, information....anything? I appreciate it SO much. I am insanely passionate about my education and schooling, and I'd really like to achieve my goals. Thank you!
  12. Hello everybody, I am thinking of seriously pursuing a masters in behavioral economics in Europe. There are almost no programs of this nature here in the USA. However due to some health issues and also partying to much my profile is academically weak. I have a 2.8 but did double major in cognitive science and geography. I however did poorly c in a basic economics class I took. Similarly I got a c+ in calculus. I attend UCLA which is a good school however so hopefully that helps. I have not taken the GRE but scored 2220 on my SAT though that probably doesn't matter. My resume however is very strong for the work world, I have international internships with the worlds best clinical research org quintiles, asia's best HR consulting firm Hewitt, and Indias biggest IT consulting firm Tata consultancy services. I also started a charity and a fraternity. I currently do research at USCs grad school of engineering and have researched at UCLAs anderson grad school of business. I don't know if any of this matters. Do I have any chance of getting into a European program in behavioral econ? I am extremely passionate about it and believe I am more than intelligent enough to master the material. I just was distracted and screwed around to much in college and my grades are not great. Thank you so much! Mac
  13. I'm weighing where to spend my time between now and December applications: the best general GRE score I can get, or a decent GRE score plus the subject test. I'm leaning towards the former because my subject test would be in psych. Looking at these forums, there are tons of posts in some areas (e.g. bio, CS) and hardly one post per year in psychology. Am I right in thinking that though the psych subject test can't hurt and can only help if the score's good, I'm not being suicidal by not taking it? (Whereas with bio or CS, I'd really be harming my chances). Only one of my preferred schools actually states that it prefers the subject test, and I could just drop that one from my list.
