dreamer33 Posted March 12, 2017 Share Posted March 12, 2017 Hi there! I have been rejected by pretty much all of the schools I applied to. With a 3.95 GPA (MBA from a reputed school in Asia), LORs from senior academicians (from non USA based unis, though), a 700 GMAT, and decent SOPs (I had them reviewed by my references, too), a 100% rejection rate has caused significant shock (and depression). I was wondering if someone might be willing to take a shot at demystifying the following? 1. What is the most important criterion in a Marketing PhD application? (To me, it looks like research experience) 2. Can someone who has been away from academics (and working in industry in a non-research position) for many years, and has decided to try to get into academia, actually ever have a chance of making it into a top 10 PhD program in the USA? 3. Anyone out there who has in the past battled the depression arising from rejections and rallied for applications all over again next year? What's your secret? :-( Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
