I'm looking to apply to PhD programs in accounting this fall, and one of my professors in my MAcc program is confident that my 750 GMAT is good enough to be applying to the very best schools, despite being young, inexperienced, and having an undergrad GPA (3.63) that doesn't particularly shine compared to other grad school applicants.

I was happy to hear this, but didn't think to ask him about the disparity between my verbal and quantitative scores. I got a 47 on both, which is 99th percentile for verbal and currently only 65th for quantitative. So I'm just wondering if that is going to impact my chances at an upper level school, since it seems that schools tend to favor the quantitative score.


Thanks in advance

I am in the same bucket as you - 96 verbal, 59 quant, 91 overall (710), 3.91 GPA, 9 years of prestigious accounting experience. Last year I applied to Virginia Tech, UNC, GWU, Duke and UMUC. I was offered admission in Virginia Tech. Phone interview with GWU, during which they pushed hard inquiring into my hard math background, which is insignificant. No other progress with GWU. UNC, Duke and UMUC - dead silence until April where I got an email to check my application status online....I received an invitation to apply from Harvard based on my overall score. I contacted them and they said they prefer 80th percentile on each section, but look at the whole application. I heard that Columbia simply throws away all applications where one of the sections is below 90th percentile. I believe another factor for success is the application pool in a particular year. E.g., if a lot of NW/Wharton MBAs with balanced 780s did not get the job of their dreams or got laid off this year and decided to go for a PhD in business instread, your chances will go down substantially.
