Hi all,

I have just completed MS in international banking and finance with a merit (London Metropolitan University). I have already done my MBA (Finance) from Nepal (First Class). I have done two bachelor's degrees (Business and Economics). I appreared for the GMAT three years back and scored 600 (Quite low for you guys, i guess). I have got around 35 research based articles published in the national dailies of Nepal and I've got 8+ years of experience in commercial banking, I am 27. What are the chances of me getting admissions into a PhD. program in the ranked US universities? Would appreciate your help/tips/suggestions for me. thanks..

other than the gmat, your credentials are good.
you need at least 90% on gmat.

Hi Dreams,

My solid advice for you (coming from someone who got 760 and tried many of the guide books), throw all books away except for the official guide. Do every question front to back and you will break 700 if you master the rules behind all the questions. For every question you get wrong in that official guide, find out what mathematical rule you didn't know and learn it (use the quant forum when you can't work out why you got something wrong). Good luck

Mick
