Hi,

I am seriously contemplating applying to a management phd program. At my age, I need to pick the right path. The admission stats at my dream programs (u of c and northwestern) are discouraging. Unless I can get into a top 20 program, I am hesitant to go. Can you help me gauge my chances?

Goal: phd in management and organizations

Work experience: Former senior manager from big 4 accounting firm
Education: MA in social sciences field 10 plus years ago, program is ranked 11, gpa 3.9, thesis but no publications
BA social sciences, liberal arts college, gpa 3.8
Test scores: tbd, aiming for 710-720
Concerns: I have heard that the phd programs don't value work experience. Is that true? My research experience was more than 10 years ago. How will that read?
