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?

I am little apprehensive about my PhD Prospects. Recently, I have begun to think seriously about an MBA. But I have already have a 1-year MBA. If I decide to pursue, would the previous MBA go against me? Would my research experience be useful in applying for MBA?

I know it has become a lengthy, boring post. But I would really appreciate if anyone could give me some advice.

I don't advise on PhD admissions so I am afraid I can't help you there. I can tell you that some schools will not consider applications from applicants who already have an MBA, some schools will consider if the MBA is simply the fourth year of post-secondary application, and some schools will consider any second MBA application, but expect you to make a compelling case for why you need the second MBA. You need to check with the schools that interest you on an individual basis.

Good luck!
