Hi, everyone, I would like to seek some advises regarding to school search. I am interested in capital market research or auditing research. Here are my profile infor:

1, I got undergraduate degree in Accounting in Aston University, UK with 3.3GPA. I also one Master degree of Accountancy in US with 3.76 GPA. I am currently a research based Master degree in Canada. My GPA there is 3.76 and I have completed my thesis proposal defence. My GMAT is 730( Q50, V39).

2, I have attended two academic conferences so far:
Administrative Sciences Association of Canada: ASAC 2014 Conference.
CAAA 2014 Conference
My paper is awarded as Best Student Paper in Accounting in ASAC 2014 Conference.

3, I have received research training from my current program and have taken the course like Research method, Philosophy of Science, Statistical technique for research and Econometrics. I also received training of using SPSS and SAS. In addition, I received Master of Science Accounting Scholarship from the Chartered Accountants Education Foundation in my province.

4, I have 3 years work experience in US, including one year in a national CPA firm.

I just want to ask if it is possible for me to get into dream schools like Booth, Columbia, UNC or Yale? Based on my profile, what are the best schools can I possibly get in? Right now, I am thinking about Pen state, Iowa, University of Pittsburgh, Utah, University of Houston and Boston College. However, I really want to get a try for some real big names and I am not sure if my current school lists are suitable for me.

Thanks a lot for whoever provides me some advisies and Merry Xmas for everyone!

You have a pretty strong profile, and definitely could try some of the big schools. Where have you ended up applying? Have you heard anything from any schools you applied?

Hello All

I have applied to LBS, INSEAD, SBS and Kellogg for management research. So far I have received an interview call from SBS, Oxford. Have to admit it didn't go well. Has anybody received an interview call from anywhere else yet? Any idea whether there will be multiple shortlists for interviews i.e. a first shortlist, second shortlist etc. ?
