Hello,

I know I'm a bit early to be posting about the 2020 admissions cycle, but I wanted to go ahead and post anyways to get a pulse on where I stand while I still have significant time to bolster my application.

Undergraduate Degree/GPA: Accounting (WVU Tech/3.35)
Master's Degree/GPA Industrial Relations: concentration in HR and organizations(Cornell/3.6)
GRE: Taking again in March. Most recent practice exam was 163v, 156q
Research: None :(
Work experience: 1 year in accounting for state of WV, will have 2 years experience in HR in a high potential early career development program at a large company. I also worked as a TA for a semester at Cornell and have some internship experience prior to beginning my current role.

My current job will require me to return my sign-on bonus if I leave before a year passes, but I was considering leaving after that period to pursue research assistantships to gain experience for my application since work experience doesn't seem valuable to a lot of (most?) PhD programs.


Dream Programs:

- Cornell
- Rotman (Univ. Toronto)
- Univ. Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
- Emory

These programs because of research in two fields: creativity in the workplace, and how lifelong social mobility affects success and satisfaction in jobs.



Thanks for any help :)

TA experience at Cornell is a plus; appears to me that you may have good letters of recommendation.

I am just curious to know as to why aren't you appearing for GMAT?

You mean why am I preparing for GRE instead of GMAT? Most of the PhD programs I've looked at seem to prefer the GRE to the GMAT. Of the ones I've listed I think only Emory prefers/requires GMAT

Hello DraxTheHRManager

Your both undergraduate and graduate (more relevant) GPA are fine.

Working experience in HR will be seen as favorable from admission committee perspective.

Having a TA at Cornell is big plus, especially since you also want to apply there.

You are right RA will be much more valuable for PhD purpose.

You have a great list of schools on your application.

I suppose your GRE score would be fine for HR concentration (didn't investigate HR, my forte is Finance), however you can check average GRE/GMAT scores for all those schools on their program websites and compare.

GRE/GMAT score is just one aspect of application, they will evaluate your application holistically.


Good Luck with Cornell and Rotman :cool:
