PhD in Finance 申请总结 [2020.04.15]

[日期:2020-08-10] 来源:ChaseDream论坛 作者:Nathan19930301 [字体: ]

马上 04.15 了,天天蹲家里上班挺闲,来总结一下申请,谈一些自我感受。

时间线:

  • GMAT 和 TOEFL 都过期了,so...
  • 10 月:开始准备 GMAT
  • 11 月:考 GMAT(没挤出时间考TOEFL)
  • 11 月下:准备 PS + CV,光速选校(see below)
  • 11 月底:拿着 application 的 draft package,找硕士教授聊推荐信(2 econ,1 math)
  • 12 - 1 月中:按照 due date 申请
  • 1 月底 - 04.15:开始面试,来 offer,拒面试,拒 offer,不停被拒……

选校思路:

  • Can waive TOEFL for me.
  • 东部的 tire 1 & 2(事实证明 should save money for tire 1,apply tire 2 only)
  • 中部 CU Boulder,Utah(easy to go ski...)
  • 西部 UCSD(感谢当年给了 stat 的硕士,虽然没去,回报一个申请费)
  • 相信上面范围的学校都能有 match 我的老师,所以选校有点简单粗暴。初期没看教授研究领域

背景及结果:

  • 陆本(econ 3.6),美硕(金工 3.9),工作(less than 3 years)
  • 本科有 RA 经历,但是本科教授说我已经硕士了,还是找硕士教授比较好,然而硕士就业导向无 RA 经历。anyway 没有 solid RA 都是泪
  • Offer with interview: Florida, Rochester
  • Offer without interview: CU Boulder (side note, 3 real estate/house finance AP in Boston/Stanford/likely UCLA will leave their current school and join Boulder), Utah
  • Withdraw from interview: CUNY Baruch, GSU (both are good, withdraw due to personal preference, no offence to anyone in these schools)
  • All others rejected without interview

一些感受/建议:

  • Never too late no matter where you are in your career, but better to prepare early
  • TOEFL 过期也考一个,不然有些学校没机会申
  • 可能工作后口语进步了,给面试的都给了 offer(except 主动 withdraw),如果这方面不够自信,请提前 prepare,practice,tell story with your degree or experience
  • 没有 solid RA 的,也最好找找这样的机会(工作党可以找找 part time RA,看看这位楼主的帖子 https://forum.chasedream.com/thread-1364461-1-1.html
  • 实在没有 solid RA 的机会,talk more with your professors so they can write a better letter,and do your best in all other parts.

最后附上之前整理的一些美国 Finance PhD 学校,download yourself if it may help you,save your time to focus on other parts of your application.
