Chances at Accounting PHD? [#permalink] New post 27 Apr 2011, 14:26
I am graduating this May from Duke.
Here are my current stats.

UGPA: 2.9 [lousy freshman year.. ~2.0, strong upward trend], graduating with a degree in Math.
Accounting GPA: 4.0 [my college doesn't offer many accounting classes though, hence why I am getting the masters to even take the CPA exam.]

GMAT: 710 [50Q, 35V, 6.0 AWA]

I got into a few masters of accounting programs and decided on the Rutgers MBA-PA program.
Would doing well in the Masters program help me out with getting a PHD??
I have the opportunity to take on my own research project while I am at Rutgers.


This is based on the assumption that I want to focus on audit research upon grad school.
Would this be a good list of schools to apply to?

Which schools should I add?
Which schools should I take off?
Would boosting my GMAT to ~740 help? I know I can bring Verbal up.
I know that a strong graduate GPA would only help a little bit and a bad one would hurt a lot but would working as a research assistant help at all?
