  1. 99% of PhD theses are half-assed anyway - in that they aren't groundbreaking. What do I want? More money (2 sources of income help with that), large network (if not double, the network with 2 schools is definitely larger), opportunities to go to conferences (support of 2 institutions is helpful), decently ranked university (one is, the other isn't), good pleasant location (the unranked university wins this)... I assume you have never been poor. Lots of people work 2-3 jobs to support themselves. When working 2 jobs, often both are "full time" jobs. "Full time" merely means 40 hrs a week. Many people have to regularly work 90-100 hrs a week. Coursework: PhD programs don't have a ton of that. And for the coursework that does need to be completed, there's a large overlap between the two universities...so deliverables can be resubmitted or repurposed. Yes, the idea is to travel back and forth. That's what I meant by
  2. I received a few admissions offers for PhD in management. I have rejected all but two (so I have 2 in hand offers). It's a tough choice: one school has better location and stipend, the other has a better ranking and shorter program. I am considering whether it might make sense to enrol in both, rather than choose. In a sense they are complementary. In terms of coursework, there are synergies - both have similar required curriculum, so there won't be a ton of extra work that I'd need to put in. In terms of the actual research output, based on my ongoing work, I feel confident that I should be able to produce 2 separate, different and competent pieces of PhD theses. Any thoughts/perspectives on this idea? Is this legal? Esp. in terms of immigration rules. Any thoughts on what the universities may say about this? (I don't want to bring this up with either, if it means I would piss them off and get my offer rescinded) Possibly relevant details: Both are in Europe (one in EU), and I am a third country national. The funding at both is via so-called assistantship "jobs" (which are taxed as such), not true stipends. The locations of the universities/countries are such that it is practical, at least financially to attend both for the coursework...even if that means round trips every week.
  3. Would greatly appreciate if someone could share average GMAT/GRE at various schools. My own interest is in Berkeley Haas, but would be great if we can gather info about all top schools.
