Am I able to get into a Phd Program in US? [#permalink] New post 28 Jan 2012, 23:46
My profile goes like this:
Male 22 Chinese
undergraduate in Chinese top 10 university: Sun Yat-sen University
GPA:4.0 rank:3/164
GMAT:760 Q:51 V:40
Internship in Deloitte
Has been in a project with tuitor about development economics
Has been awarded with national scholarship twice and the first class scholarship in SYSU twice.

My goal is to go to top university and study as a finance or economics Phd. Do i need to take the GRE exam? What kind of program should i focus on? I mean the rank of school.

Thx!

You would not have to take the GRE but I do believe you need to take the TOEFL. As far as your chances I believe you do have a good chance to get in a top program.

THX SO MUCH!
I am going to take my TOFEL before May. I am wondering whether there will be some promising working opportunities after the graduation of Phd? It seems that Phd might be over qualified to some companies right?

If you get into one of the top Phd programmes and perform well in your phd, you will have a promising career opportunities in academia. However, if you intend to go back to the industry - there is no point in getting a Phd.

How are your phd apps going? Have you shortlisted any schools? I am also aiming to apply for phd programs for fall 2013.
