I would like to hear your opinion about my chances of being accepted to Chicago GSB or Kellog.
About myself. I'm Russian female, self-motivated, very determined. Always have been a leader. During my studing at an univeristy I was a chief of a scientific committee. In Russia at my former place of work I was a senior-researcher, had people under my supervision. Additionally, I lectured special courses for graduate students at Tumen State University.
I have total 8+ years of experiences. 7 years in research (theoretical physics) in Russia+1 year research in USA (Northewestern University, department of engineering and applied mathematics). I have 18 scientific works published in well-known international magazines. Participated in International conferences. I can get good referencies from well-known scientists.
Furthermore, I owned a small business in Russia. I was a CEO. I came to the USA in summer of 2000, because my husband got a job offer.
When I came to the US I was not able to communicate and went right away to ESL for a year. In a year I graduated all 6 levels of the course. Then, I volunteered to help a manager of an appartment complex where I used to live. I was an interpreter. After that I got a job in Northwestern, where I worked for about a year as a researcher. But then the project was not financed anymore, because it was necessarily to find a specialist in viruses. The project was to develop a method of killing viruses via chemical surfactants. I was responsible for modeling of physical processes(multiphase flow) inside thin tubes with elastic boundaries (blood vessels). I've done some job and have a material for an article. But I didn't work on it, since I decided to persue a business career (finance).
PhD in physics and mathematics.
GPA 4.0, graduated with honor. A fellow of Russian acoustic society, have special awards for academic performance and for the best dissertation.
My GMAT score is Q51, V21, total 600. I know that I can improve Verbal, but is any chance to get admitted with my current score?
Thanks in advance.
P.S. I'm planning to write an additional essay addressing how I'm going to improve my low Verbal.
