  1. I am interested in primarily organizational behavior programs and social psychology programs and would like to attend a top university. I am worried that my applications will be looked over due to the undergraduate institution I attended and wanted to know other opinions as to if I have a chance of admission at the (top) schools I applied to. I do want to note that I am attending the university I am because I wanted to graduate earlier, as I already had a lot of credits due to dual-enrollment classes. I’m not sure if it was a good decision, but I’d like to know my chances for the schools I applied to. Undergrad Institution: Low ranked state university with an acceptance rate of ~65% and a graduation rate of 45% (ranking according to US News is >700)Major(s): PsychologyMinor(s): n/aGPA in Major: 3.97Overall GPA: 3.97Type of Student: US Citizen, Male, CaucasianGRE ScoresQ: 170V: 163W: 4.5Research Experience: History independent study, 25 page paper (was interested in it freshman year) — presented at regional Honors program conference Behavioral Economics study — presented at regional economics conference Attended a psychology REU — no publications as of yet Independent psychology research project looking at how decision making heuristics can lead to unwanted choices (1 year) Honors thesis also doing a study in regards to decision making heuristics — 30 pages, and presented at a regional psychology conferenceAwards/Honors/Recognitions: Featured on my local news channel and newspaper for a perfect SAT score, member of my college’s Honors Program, full-ride scholarship at my college, perfect SAT scorePertinent Activities or Jobs: TA for introductory psychology class during 1 semester, member of Psychology ClubMiscellaneous: I have contacted potential professors who I would be studying under in all the programs I have applied to, and have taken a few business classes in management-related areas. Research Interests: I am interested in understanding decision making biases and heuristics to improve how business decisions are made through structural changes, and am also interested in how our social environment and the people we are in touch with influence our decisions.Applying to Where: OB U of Toronto Rotman — Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management Harvard B-School — Organizational Behavior U of Michigan Ross — Management and Organizations U of Virginia Darden — Leadership in Organizations Colombia B-School — Management (Organizational Behavior Specialization) Stanford B-School — Organizational Behavior Social Psychology Carnegie Mellon — Social & Decision Sciences UCLA — Social Psychology Cornell — Social and Personality
  2. I am wondering will a school frown down upon a 303 GRE score. I studied for a few months and the first time I took it I scored 300, 146 quant and 154 verbal with a 4.0 writing. I waited 21-days and retook again, scoring a total of 303, 148 quant, 155 verbal and I am still waiting on my writing score. I have my Master's in Industrial/Organizational Pyschology and I have three years of research experience. Please advise!
  3. Hello guys, I recently applied to OB PhD programs and in the process of waiting for interviews/admission results. Haven't seen a forum page for OB applicants (let me know if there is already one!) and thought I'd just open up a new thread to share information. Is there anyone who already received interview offers or admission results (reject/admit)?
  4. Hello Grad Cafe-ers! I'm starting a new thread for OB PhDs for the Fall 2012 application season! (the other thread seemed dead) I'm interested in seeing what the overall volume of people going for this is like, and which programs are hot! I remember using this site like crazy 2 years ago when I was applying for a Masters! So, I'm finishing that MS in I-O Psychology right now, and I'm going to apply to a couple of amazing schools because I happen to live very close to them. I had a VERY bad GRE in 2008 (before the changes - not that it made anything better), but I'm thinking with my completion of an 80 page thesis and about 2.5 years of various research and professional experience, I'll be able to compensate. Plus, I'm lucky that these schools have profs that have similar research interests to the work I've done for my thesis! So what does anyone think? I could really use the support, but I'm also pretty good at receiving constructive feedback - so feel free to let it rip... 2008 GRE: 960 TOTAL!!!!! (Ahhhhhh)...hey at least it got me into a Master's program! Low-tier BA in Psych: 3.85 GPA Mid-tier MS in I-O Psy: 3.86 GPA GREAT LETTERS: VP at Fortune 500 company (PhD), Associate Dean in College of Business, and my thesis advisor (I-O) 2.5 Years of paid research experience in academic and organizational settings + 1.5 years of independent research for thesis Schools: Berkeley Haas Berkeley Social-Personality Psych Stanford GSB Indiana University (safety)? I'm feeling especially nervous because these are some crazy schools. But I already started reaching out to some of these profs and surprisingly I've had some encouragement (I think they just tell everyone that stuff)! What do you all think? Looking forward to responses to my questions, but also to hear about everyone else's plans =D -Mike
