Good Enough for any Top 20 B-School? [#permalink] New post 09 Feb 2005, 04:05
(This is actually a repost my original post at forum.)

Hi Guys!

I would really appreciate if you could give me some pointers on my application process. I hope to apply for Fall'06. As I have sometime in my hand, I could be able to "repackage" different aspects of my application.

Age: 28
Nationality: Bangladesh
GPA: Undergraduate (3.54, top 10%); Graduate (3.56, top 5%)
Major: Finance
GMAT: 690 (Q48, V36)
Work Experience:
From 2000 - now: working as a Director in our family's Stock Brokerage Business
From 2003 - now: Simultaneously worked as a Full-time Faculty member in one of the nation's top business schools

I am about to take a serious decision now. I always planned to do pursue a PhD degree in Finance. I think my CGPA and GMAT is not enough to get into any of the top 20 B-School PhD programs in the US. I have got some research experience as well as some consultancy experience in both financial and non-financial sectors. Would it be able to offset my shortcomings in GPA and GMAT? Given my credentials which schools should I target?

Given age and experience, you can target almost all Univs. However, as I think I have said innumerable times, admits for PhD (and even tougher for Finance) are tough for international applicants with low GMAT. So that is where I will put my energies on. Rest is actually pretty impressive, you should not have problems except perhaps on GMAT.
