    PhD - Management

    Hey everyone, I'm thinking of applying for my PhD in management at two very different schools, McGill University in Canada (Desautels) and Rice University (Jones) in the US. Does anyone here have any insight as to which might be better program? I will likely only apply to these two, and perhaps 2-3 other schools. Thanks!
  2. Hi, guys! I'm on the waitlist at Drexel Lebow Strategy Ph.D. program. I'm very confused about my chances. For those who got the offer could you please let me know are you gonna to accept it or not? Really appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
  3. Anyone who's applied to Business/Management PhD programs in Canada? I have applied to a few this year, and just wanted to know what are people's opinions about Canadian PhD programs as compared to USA programs. Specifically, in terms of post PhD job prospects, research collaboration opportunities, and general university life? Thanks much!

    General letter advice?

    Hey, I'm trying to get my letters of recommendation all wrangled up for my desires to get a PhD in philosophy I'm freaking out right now, mainly because I only ever did like one course with most of my professors. Out of the two I worked closest with, one of them has been kind enough to work like pretty closely on the process, and the other one has been dead silent because of a bunch of things going on in their life, and am in the process of trying to re-open that communication channel. The other big hurdle is that for financial reasons I am on the opposite end of the United States as I could not find a stable job near my college that could pay DC / Northern Virginia levels of rent. Currently, due to this, I only have like one real letter of recommendation on lock-down. I am thinking of going to get an MA to try and drum up two more, but the issue there is that it seems like all the MA programs for Philosophy in WA require 3 of em. I also was part of an Accelerated MA program for the college, used it to take Graduate level work, but due to the move that the family was making I kinda had to ghost out and am concerned that might lead to bad blood with one of the professors I want to get into contact with but I'm worried that if I broach the subject that'll create that bad blood by bringing it up. So, the question becomes: 1. Should I reach out to the professors I only did like one course with, but who seemed to respect the general cut of my jib? 2. Should I look to other sources for possible letters of recommendation? Both in other departments, my English classes for instance, or outside of academia proper? Working a normal job right now and am thinking of asking one of them to give me a generic one, if that might be of use? 3. Any tips on trying to get the conversation started and not feeling like a miserable and selfish bastard for taking up a lot of their incredibly busy and precarious schedules?
  5. If you are familiar with the Strategy & Entrepreneurship group (ranking, reputation, placement, curriculum, anything), I'd really appreciate your thoughts. Thanks a lot!

    SIPA vs SAIS 2016

    Another one of those long-time "lurkers," first time poster. Is anyone else deciding between SIPA and SAIS, or have suggestions for the pros + cons list? Although I'm doing a Asia/South Asia concentration, I'd appreciate any insights regarding the programs as a whole. One of the things I'm most curious about is about how folks here measure the programs' prestige. Although that won't be the defining factor, I still am not completely sure how to assess the "ranking" of the programs, outside of the TRIP/FP study from last year. Thanks in advance for your help!
  7. Hi everyone, I received early acceptance to 1 of the 5 schools I applied to for a Masters program. The school that accepted me gave a deadline of Mid-March to accept or decline the offer. The problem is that the other schools advertise on their website that they give offers Mid or Early April. I talked to a few friends, some who study in the programs I am waiting to hear from. Most said that it couldn't hurt to call the schools and explain the situation to prompt a response from the schools I am waiting to hear from. Does anyone have any insight on this situation or if calling the schools I am waiting to hear from is advisable? Should I try to set up a strategy so that I can make a decision based on more offers/declines. Thanks
  8. Is there a logic to this other than "find people who are knowledgeable in the area of and sympathetic to your specific dissertation topic" ? My university's handbook tells us to choose 5 committee members, specifying that a maximum of two can be chosen from outside the university. Why would that be a good plan? Is there some reason why you would WANT someone from outside the university given the added bureaucratic red tape and trouble for everyone involved? Reasons I can think of: Your university lacks people with the right expertise. Your beloved former adviser has moved to a different university (or was convicted on all counts, or sent into space with a monkey and a dog, or gave up academia for a NASCAR career). Why else? Is there prestige associated with getting mucky-mucks to be on your committee? I know that your adviser's reputation matters a lot-- but how important is the committee that you choose? Is choosing someone from another university a way of positioning oneself so as to increase the chances of getting a job at one of their institutions? [*]Is this a matter of literally linking your name with theirs in some sort of social networking way (electronic and otherwise)? From a different perspective (that probably matters most): ******Unless you have a pre-existing relationship, why the heck would a professor at another institution agree to be on your committee simply because he/she has expertise that's useful to you? What's their incentive?? What do they get out of it other than extra work? ****** So... what's the story here? I'm wondering if there isn't some super-clever thing that some people have figured out to do in selecting their committee. That's my question... but any other advice on selecting a committee (esp. in the social sciences) would be very welcome!
