Scholarship student & Chance to be accepted [#permalink] New post 29 Oct 2004, 08:44
I get a full scholarship from university in my country and commit to return to be instructor after graduation. Since I recieve both of my bachelor and master degree out of US, some of my friends said that the opportunity for me to be admitted by university in US is quite rare. I have searched the profile of PhD student in Finance at various university and found that most of them get their master degree in US. If you have any idea on the following question, please let me know.

1. According to my friends' comment, is it true?
2. On be half scholarship student and being instructor in the future, do I have more chance to be accepted?

Just to be sure I understand, do you have a guaranteed teaching position after you finish the doctoral program?

Thanks for your reply..Hjort. Yep...It's a condition of scholarship that I have to return to be instructor at the university granting scholarship to me. The university will pay all costs during my studying.

I'm waiting for your idea. :-)

Maybe, you are also Thai :-) Belows are the answer for your questions.

GPA : 3.90 (MBA from Chulalongkorn University)
TOEFL : 263 ( CBT)
GMAT : just 600 :-(

Waiting for your reply..Mr. Siamman. This is my e-mail becoolja@hotmail.com, just in case that you would like to reply directly to me. Will you start PhD in fall 2005?

Hi [#permalink] New post 22 Nov 2004, 03:02
Hi my friend, I am also Thai!
Maybe I am in the wrong page naa..
I expected to the MS Finance program, not PhD.

I got B.Engineering (GPA 2.3) from Chula,
and another, MBA (3.4) Toefl243 and GMAT650.
BTW, I think I will retake GMAT.

Based on my current GMAT score, I have to think about my target school again. Maybe, just any school in US is fine with me :-)

I think the PhD Finance at Texas A&M is interesting na krab.
It's in the top20 B school, but the PhD program is not
very competitive. I remember that the avg GMAT of PhD there
is about 650. The others that are quite good in Finance are
U of Illinois - Chicago which require minimum 600 (but avg GMAT
there is 680) and U of Denver. However, maybe you already know
and know more than me naa..

BTW, you will apply for the 2005, right?
