Dear,

Anyone wanna pursue PhD in finance? I just found this web site last week so I am quite new at here. Anyway, there are a lot of useful information for improving my GMAT score Right now, my GMAT is just 650 and TOEFL is 263 . I think that only 2nd tier is enough for me....

Any suggestion? I'm now writing my statement of purpose and I am quite blank about what I should include. Since my TOEFL and GMAT scores are not so excellent, Statement of purpose may be another factor that I should concentrate. Should anyone has a sample of statement of purpose or know any websites, please let me know. If it's pertinent to PhD in finance, it would be great!!

Thank you krub

Welcome to GMATClub, Becoolja.

PhD in Finance is a most sought after discipline. Believe me, you are against the toughest competition.

SOP is personal, so I cannot comment on it, moreover I do not even know your background to give any pointers. For a PhD in finance, Toefl scores are relatively unimportant but GMAT is. I would sincerely advice you to concentrate on improving your score to a minimum of 720+, without which internationals have very little scope to get selected, unless the rest of the app is extraordinary (like climbed Mt Everest or starred with Meryl Streep in a couple of films....I am joking.. but you get the gist).

Also, if you have prior RA/TA or research experience, put that in SOP/ app.

Let us have some more data to comment on.

Dear Anupag,

Thank you very much for your quick reply to my query. You know? After a short time of my scanning through each topic, I feel that all people here are so broad-minded and willing to healp one another. It's my luck to find this web site in time. I would take your suggestion into consideration when drafting my SOP krub. Right now, I should focus on GMAT and hope that I can improve it eventually. Then, I will ask you and other friends here for comment on my SOP.

Nice to know everone here krub.

Ciao
