Am I PhD competitive?

Post Tue Oct 05, 2010 6:48 am
I graduated from a large, Catholic, private school with a GPA of 3.43 in Accounting. I have passed all 4 sections of the CPA exam, and I have about a year of experience in a big 4 public accounting firm. I haven't taken the GMAT yet, but plan to do so in mid November. Hoping to score 650+. Am I a competitive candidate for a PhD program in business/accounting, or I am just dreaming?

I think it's going to depend on your GMAT score, the rest of your application looks great.

Hi Philly i share the same vision as you and keen on responses on this.I wish we didnt have to take the GMAT for a PHD.
What area are you looking to apply in for the PHD? Im looking at a PHD in business Management Specialisation.
