  1. Hi - I am wondering if universities have a preference for GRE v/s GMAT for a PhD application in Management / Organizational Behavior. Most universities say they accept either, while some universities explicitly say they prefer the GRE. However, most of the folks on these forums seem to have answered the GMAT. Any thoughts on this?
  2. I'm a master's student in economics in Brazil and I intend to apply for some PhD programs in economics this year. I did TOEFL and GRE. On the GRE my grades were good, I got 170 in the quant, 163 in the verbal, and 4.5 in the Analytical writing. However, on the TOEFL, I had a problem in the writing (I got 19, I think my arguments in the independent text were contradictory), but I did pretty good in the other parts (30 in the reading and listening and 24 in the speaking). So, my overall was 103, which is above the 100 that the greatest universities generally require. Moreover, I am only intending to apply for universities in which the TOEFL requirement is an overall score (like Berkeley that the minimum requirement is 90, Columbia that the minimum requirement is 100 or UCSD that the minimum requirement is 80). Do you think that I need to retake the TOEFL just because of my grade in the writing? I would not like to take it again because it is an extremely expensive exam here in Brazil and it's extremely stressful.
  3. Hello Everybody I plan to apply for a PhD in Economics at LSE, UCL, Oxford and Cambridge. My grades are pretty good (top 5% of my class) but I am a bit worried regarding the GRE. I recently did the GRE but I had a bad day and didn't score as high as I wanted. To be precise I had the following score: Quant 165 Verbal 154 AWA 4.0 I know that US Universities are very strict about the GRE and that many top Universities will filter your application out if you have a Quant GRE lower than 166 or 167. Does anyone know hows the situation at the British Universities (especially LSE, UCL and Oxbridge)? Do you guys think I should retake the GRE and aim for a higher quant score (maybe also Verbal and AWA)? Or are the GRE scores for a PhD in England not that important? Thank you so much for your help!

  7. Hi Friends, I could not make it to my dream universities during the current year. I would like to know your choice of Universities which are considered good but not great. Universities near New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Washington DC would be good for me. But feel free to suggest your choice of Universities. Only Universtied which provide Funding. Thank you.
  8. I received a few admissions offers for PhD in management. I have rejected all but two (so I have 2 in hand offers). It's a tough choice: one school has better location and stipend, the other has a better ranking and shorter program. I am considering whether it might make sense to enrol in both, rather than choose. In a sense they are complementary. In terms of coursework, there are synergies - both have similar required curriculum, so there won't be a ton of extra work that I'd need to put in. In terms of the actual research output, based on my ongoing work, I feel confident that I should be able to produce 2 separate, different and competent pieces of PhD theses. Any thoughts/perspectives on this idea? Is this legal? Esp. in terms of immigration rules. Any thoughts on what the universities may say about this? (I don't want to bring this up with either, if it means I would piss them off and get my offer rescinded) Possibly relevant details: Both are in Europe (one in EU), and I am a third country national. The funding at both is via so-called assistantship "jobs" (which are taxed as such), not true stipends. The locations of the universities/countries are such that it is practical, at least financially to attend both for the coursework...even if that means round trips every week.
  9. Hello, I have 2 offers from University of Alberta and Texas A&M University and both universities are my top choices. However, in choosing one of these universities I have a couple of reservations in my mind and I will be very glad if you could provide some insights. 1. Considering the Job Market after completing the PhD, does the ranking of the institution where you get your PhD from matters? If yes, in what degree? 2. Again considering the Job Market, PhD in Canada vs. PhD in US? In other words, do the universities in the US have a tendency to hire applicants having PhD’s from American institutions? 3. How do you consider Univ. of Alberta in terms of its prestige in the US vs. Texas A&M? Although it’s in top 5 universities in Canada, how it is known in the US? 4. Am I even asking the right questions? I am aware of the fact that almost all will depend on how I will improve myself, what I will do in my PhD studies, dissertation, publications etc. rather than the “prestige” of the institution. However, assuming I will have a similar portfolio when I will complete my PhD, I am trying to understand the differences of these schools. Thank you!
  10. Can anyone tell me which EU universities offer masters in economics with scholarships that cover tuition and living expenses? I do not want to apply to Britain universities and I know about Bonn, CEMEFI, Carlos, BI, and Tinbergen. I applied them all.
  11. Hello, At some places I read that if one doesn't get an interview offer till the mid-February the rejection is on the way. I have also heard of tales of students getting accepted without an interview. Also I have read on websites of good number of universities that an interview is not required to be considered for the PhD position. I searched this forum for this topic, with a variation of keywords, but I couldn't find a thread pertaining to this concern, so I created this thread. If anyone has seen a thread about this, it would be great if you could share it with us. I had contacted some professors in the late 2018, and they had said some positive stuff. Thus, I was optimistic about my chances this time, but it has been very silent so far. :( Is it a common practice to get positive responses from professors? If anyone is in the same boat as me, it would be great to connect and sail together. Does it help to send follow up emails to the department or professors of the universities in which we are interested in? Or is it better to just wait? Also, it would be nice to hear from you about the chances of acceptance if we have not received any interview invitations till now. Best of luck to everyone for this season. :)

  17. [h=1]What universities do you recommend me for applying for PhD in management (probably marketing)[/h] Wadup, fam? So here's my profile: BS electronics engineering in Guatemala, 3.1 GPA. Master in Management Tulane, 3.8 GPA. GRE 152V 158Q. Relevant experience 3 years (1 year working in Microsoft as trainee and now Mrktn Manager for 13 countries in Microsoft). I got my master's thesis submitted for publication and I've been teaching assistant before. I know this falls short for MIT, but which universities you reckon would give me a serious chance? Thanks
  18. Hi I wouldn't ask a general question without doing any research. I have selected about 8 universities matching with my profile and would want all of you to kindly advice me whether I am on the right track or whether I am missing some places or if I am overconfident with some. I am in the final year of Undergrad in Economics from University of London (International Program) from an affiliate center (of Uof london) in India and I have completed some introductory and intermediate coursework in economics as well as completing advanced coursework in math and economics Firstly, I want to pursue a Masters in Economics simply in order to grab the full story. By that I mean, after learning Econometrics and Macroeconomics, I am very inclined towards real econometric theory with applications of linear algebra and real macroeconomic theory with math. This is the reason why I am choosing institutes which are not money-making ones, for e.g. LSE, no offence to LSE but I judge it as a money maker including all other institutes in UK. When I go to graduate school to do economics, I want it to be more of investment of time and less of money (I am aware that masters students don't receive full funding but I do see tuition fees as a major constraint when looking at institutes) . I want to apply Masters to non-academic areas like economic research (like consulting agencies), official institutions (banks, funds). So overall, at the moment, I am not committed to a PhD, I feel that actually spending a year in graduate school will make me realize if I am capable enough or not. So I want to use Masters in Economics as a terminal degree for job market, particularly research institutions. Please look at my profile and choice of institutes and give me any input or advice, I highly appreciate your time and advice. PROFILE Type of undergrad: Bachelor of Science, Economics Undergrad GPA: Upper Second Class (UK) (Expected in 2015) (Prediction based on current sem grades) If I convert on random online websites, I get 3.61 but don't know how accurate that is , any legitimate websites?

Reputation of Undergrad degree: The course can be pursued anywhere in world as University of London has recognised teaching centers throughout the world, it is also mentioned on LSE's website as it has been designed by LSE University of London International Programmes with academic direction provided by LSE. - University of London International Programmes - Study - Home. I am not sure if this course will be a downside when applying to USA and Canada and Europe. Based on books I mentioned being followed, what do you guys think? One Uni in switzerland told me that where university doesnt have a seat in your country, then the degree is not recognized. I didn't face any other problems, not sure if this is a disadvantage. 2. No Research Experience: There is no requirement other than completion of coursework and my institute being a teaching center of a much larger institute (Uni of london) there is no research work that goes on here. Hence that part of the window is shut and on top of that, finding research assistant opportunities in my city paid no dividends as undergrads aren't given much importance. I don't know how I could fill this gap in my application, any ideas? I thought of writing an independent thesis and get one of the teachers to supervise my work but not sure if that would be of any value. Any ideas? Having no research experience will be a major disadvantage in my SOP where I am forced to base the statement heavily on my interests, inspirations and upcoming work rather than relating it to any particular work or contribution I have made in the past. Please advice 3. Calculation of GPA for UK Grades: Our final exam papers go to LSE and are marked there according to UK grade classification and I don't know how to convert these into letter grades, any help ? I used the following: Percentage Grade 70-100 A 65-69 A- 60-64 B+ 55-59 B 50-54 C+ 45-49 C- 40-44 C Can anyone provide any legitimate source for conversion? I have eleven grades above 60, out of which eight are above 65,of which one is above 70; and the rest of three below 65 but greater than 60. I didn't count subjects not related to econ (finance and business) in gpa, is it acceptable to do that? I think failure in finance would significantly lower my cumulative gpa, kind of unfair. I can't find more than 2 good universities (under decent budget) in USA : Wisconsin-Madison (any input on this, they just started a masters) and Tufts (why is this not ranked anywhere? also cant find any discussion threads on this) I am not considering the money makers Boston, Duke, New York, Columbia, Texas Austin, Michigan, Minnesota and Cornell, is any of them worth giving a shot? How about the lower ranked ones like Houston, Colorado-Denver and Florida State? Also as per advice by professor, not considering anything apart from UBC in Canada, like toronto, waterloo, york, queens, mcgill etc, what do you guys think? Plus any other unis outside of usa and canada? Whoa, I asked a whole lot of questions, I am really sorry But Extremely pleased about this forum and quality of people here and really appreciate your advice on my issue!!!

  20. Hi, I have score a score of 1270 in my gre (Quant -780 , Verbal 490 ) which i wrote on 22.June.2011 .I would like to do my Phd in Machine Learning /Artifical Intelligence.I am currently working for R&d at a reputed Company.The work that we do is allied with Machine learning and Data Mining.

Further during my college days I have participated and won prizes in IBM great mind challenge(national level code contest),Sun Code for freedom contest,Sun Microsystems,India (Open Source development- shortlisted in first 25 projects allover India) and JavaFX code contest by Sun Microsystems,India.

Should i consider enrolling for MS since my score in gre is less and after that pursue my PHD or apply straight to Phd? If for Phd which universities I might get an admit ( Some suggestions would really help me out).Please suggest me or point out me to some other threads. (After reading certain forums on PHD enrollment i could see my gre score will be a real drawback.However I think my resume and accomplishments would support me in that case. ) I really appreciate your time on reading this and would be so grateful if you could reply back Thanks and Regards Sree Visu.
