Dear Friends,

I am 29 yrs old male and planned to apply for Ph. D in USA in the field of Management,

Business Administration.

i have completed B.Tech in Chemical Engg with Distinction Masters in Polymer Science in Europe and have 2 yrs experience in R&D.; I am currently unemployed and wanted to PhD in usa. I dont want to work in Technical field.

My doubts or fears are

Will US universities accept my application for phd in Management? I have this doubt because i have not done anything related to business administration, management. I have only six-month experience in market research. thats all

is it worth a try? i need to invest time, energy money before i apply(as u already know, toefl, gmat, coaching for gmat, aappln fee, ,,,) i dont know whether this is sense or absolutely senseless to try phd in management with masters in polymer science. what is the success or probably rate to get in or to get admission with funding?

I am thinking if I apply with all documents and if they reject my application, then it is complete waste of everything. That is why I wanted to know probability to get in with funding, before I prepare and spend money for all those stuffs mentioned above. i heard a friend saying it is extremely rare to get in with funding for management program? should i drop my idea....?

and finally how long does it take to prepare for GMAT to get good score?

Thanks much
