Update: I didn't get in anywhere. Time to figure out how best to improve my GMAT score and apply again in the fall.

Some adcoms I've been in contact with stated they would be willing to let less-than-satisfactory undergrad grades slide by if the applicant had outstanding GRE/GMAT scores. Of course, I think gheffo's GRE scores are amazing... but then again, maybe some adcoms wanted somebody who was outstanding in both GPA and GRE/GMAT.

what would one consider "hard quant"? im taking as part of my masters the calculus sequence, linear algebra, intro stat, regression, multivariate, probability thoery, as well as the usual research methods and a couple of marketing classes.

ugh, sorry, been busy trying to finish my thesis.

Yeah, all those classes would be good hard quant courses that adcoms will like.

Econ and Accounting BA
18 months experience in IT
4.5 years in Corporate

Will send in apps for accounting Ph.D programs.
Prelim list (might expand to more schools in the coming months):

PhD:

UT Austin
U Michigan
U Chicago
Wharton
U Washington
MSU
HBS

Since I did much better on the GMAT, I will also apply to MBA programs:

Thanks for the feedback.

This isn't a "I'll do anything", rather "doing better on the GMAT has potentially opened more opportunities". At first I was only considering PhD programs, but now that I broke 700, I see potential in both programs.

I spoke to an alum from U Chicago (MBA) and he mentioned that admission committees for the respective programs are mutually exclusive.

That being said, I don't think (as far as I've given thought) that my goals between the programs would diverge. The outcome would hopefully be in the same direction. The MBA would be a more business oriented approach, while the PhD would be more governance/academic.

Thanks again for the expanded feedback.

I'm going to sleep on that some more. I might just stick to a few of MBA programs (Wharton, HBS, Michigan) and then focus the rest on PhD apps, only over lapping on Michigan with both apps (PhD: UT Austin, Chicago, MSU, Michigan, Washington).
