I am 42 applying for phd with an MBA from a Top global university in India after 20 years..is it likely that i will be considered favorably for admissions based on my quant capabilities, i expect to repeat a 750-800 on the GMAT (Q59, V 43 IR 10 AWA 6) but recommendations will be from contacts of 20 years ago, with last 5 years in self study and financial analysis business experiments

Undergraduate education is from one of the original IITs

Well, I don't know of anyone that will fund your application process other than yourself. Although sometimes schools do offer discounts for fees if you can show need.

Hmmmm, I'm not sure if this is the best goal for you. What is your idea behind getting a PhD? You know the main thing about PhD to be successful is to start early. IT takes 3 (absolute minimum) to finish, but in reality five... plus then you have to work in academia for a few years to prove yourself, get some post doc work, etc. If your goal is to make tenure, it's probably already a bit late... but if you want the knowledge for other reasons, then it might be a good idea.

What are your ideas? What are your goals?
