Heartiest congratulations on this achievement. Truly a monumental victory. Which schools are you targeting for Phd or MSFin?

@Alchemist
I'm also interested in Phd though MBA kinda allures me more. Just torn between the two at the moment. Which area are you planning to do your Phd in ?

Well, how much time are your looking at for this kind of improvement because frankly speaking this goal is very ambitious. Shifting from 25 to 35 might be achievable but from 25 to 40-45 is very difficulty over 1-2 months.

I agree . A target of 37-40 though seems a bit more achievable in a span of 1-2 months.

I'm not sure that whether a target of 37-40 is actually achievable within 1-2 months. I have been studying for the GMAT for the last 4 months and on the last CAT I had taken lately, I ended up getting a 34 on Verbal which is not impressive at all. Don't know how to improve further. :(

I think that 34 is not a bad score at all. What is more important than the score at the moment is that you analyze your performance on the test.I'm sure that you'd be able to take your score higher by at least 3-4 points on Verbal if you analyze rigorously.

Sorry friends...I was out of this forum so couldn’t reply to many of you

On verbal -

I got greatly benefited by Powerscore and Aristotle..I think my reading habits must have helped as well...I was initially struggling with grammar but in the end a lot of practice helped
I think improvement from 35 to 40-42 is possible but from 30...38-40 is more reasonable target

On PHD/MiF
I’m only applying for LBS MiF and Oxford MFE...might apply to Princeton and MIT as well
In ideal scenario...PHD will happen only after 8-10 years

Yeah, LBS has the most reputed Ms Finance program; don't know about Oxford MFE. MFE is heavily quant oriented and in a lot of schools is taught in collabaration with the engineering school of that university. I had a friend who had applied for MFE and had an admit from Michigan last year. Keep us updated about your application. Btw, what do you mean by "PHD will happen only after 8-10 years" . Couldn't understand that.

I meant that I’m not very keen on an academic PHD per se...I surely want to do research but that will more as a practitioner...plus I’m in no hurry...see a reasonable 10 years of hard core corporate life ahead...and then can co-opt for corporate and research

He's one of the celebrated people in his area. I didn't know much about him until one of my friends, who's crazy about maths, stock market and never used to get tired of using phrases like "Random variables and Stochiastic processes"(whatever that means :-D ), applied for Ms in Financial Engineering. He used to almost idiolize Emanuel Derman
