My first post on this Forum.have been a research asociate for the past one year in a project which is getting over next feb.have explored options and have settled for PhD as an option.have browsed the net-more knowledge and somewhat a little of 'too much info' .if anybody could help with atleast these queries,1)have decided to sit for Gmat & toefl in Nov.will registering one of these days be too late?will soon get hold of my credit card,am waiting for that.kolkata will be the likely centre.2)with two mths prep-what resources should i settle for-princeton,kaplan,bigbook?a cousin of mine has sent me certain links-he says "take printouts,why buy?"i too do not wish to confuse myself with too much materials.3)I have done my MBA,then one year work exp in a pvt bank as a trainee,and thereafter,an RA in a research project.academics-Std X-80%,Std XII-77%,B.com-72% and MBA-75%..however,maths background is sadly lacking.based on preferences for a PhD(Finance),have shortlisted following schools-syracuse,purdue,yale( offers full financial aid,i guess),nanyang,new york univ,minnesota,colorado & insead.any recommendations welcome because i need schools that will offer funding(normally phd programs are fully funded by several universities).i know i have listed some top schools like insead but nanyang and insead do not charge application fees(a good thing 'cos the normal rate is $40-$75 per application).4)obtaining visa requires the statement of resources by the candidate.but if the university does give a letter wherein the funding is specifically mentioned,is it still possible to get a visa?the whole process of applying,sitting for gmat&toefl; is quite expensive,and so this question is really imp....because there's no sense in going through the entire process if the visa requirements need such a mandatory statement irrespective of any fundings offered?thank you.more questions will come depending on the reply to the last question!!!!!!!!!
