Hi everyone,

I am CIS country citizen and plan to apply for PhD in USA. I have an undergraduate degree in World Economy from top university in my country (GPA 4.0) and a graduate degree in Accounting and Finance in top 10 (some rankings: top 5) UK universities (GPA 3.0-3.33, but thesis grade - 4.0, which is 1/3 of credits received).

Moreover, during bachelors i had 2 internships ( Ministry and major telecommunication company) during 2nd year of BSc studies. During last 2 years of bachelors I worked as a part-time tax consultant at one of the Big4 companies. After my master's degree, I changed the direction, switching to audit department at another Big4 company. I got promotion in half a year and currently work as an advanced staff.

Also I teach Economics ( as EY CSR program representative) at state university in my country.

I plan to take GMAT exam in October ( hopefully, will score 700+ , currently score 680 at mock tests)

My master's degree was research based and contained lots of econometrics, which at first lowered my gpa due to lack of sufficient knowledge. But then with the help of my Econometrics Professor who was my thesis supervisor I was able to advance my knowledge and got distinction on my dissertation. I loved doing research and currently enjoy teaching. Therefore I would like to continue my career in academia.

Would be glad if anyone could advice me whether my background is enough to be admitted to PhD program in USA? And which range of schools should I consider?
