    Sponsored Ad:
    PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: Public research university with no ranking in Economics Undergrad GPA: 3.82, Major: 3.75 Type of Grad: - Grad GPA: - GRE: 165V/170Q/4.5AW Math Courses: Calculus I (CR), II (B), Research Methods (B) Online Courses: Multivariate Calculus, Linear Algebra, Econometrics: Methods and Applications (Erasmus Rotterdam), Data Analysis for Social Scientists (MITx), Statistics and R (HarvardX), Introduction to Linear and Matrix Algebra (HarvardX).

Other Courses: Introductory Financial Letters of Recommendation: Professor and Editor of my university's undergraduate research journal, Economics Professor known in regulation economics and game theory (knows me well + informal thesis adviser), Econometrics Professor. Research Experience: Published two journal articles in university's undergraduate research journal, accepted poster presentation in an undergraduate economics conference (2017) sponsored by the FED. Teaching Experience: Volunteer tutoring in calculus and economics tutor for Principles Micro and Macro class. Research Interests: Development Economics, International Economics and Microeconomics SOP: Detailed my interests in research, motivation, preparedness and interest in European masters. Applying to (2018 Winter intake, and preference is in order): LMU Munich, Sciences Po, Toulouse GSE, University of Bonn, Goethe Universitat Frankfurt, University of Cologne, University of Hamburg, University of Vienna, and University of St. Gallen. --- I am applying for a European Msc in Quantitative Economics/Economics with the hopes of training quantitative reasoning and experience diverse perspectives in conducting research prior to applying for a PhD program. I am here to ask for advice or suggestions and input on my profile as I will be applying to masters programs in Europe as a Non-EU applicant. know that I don't have an impressive GPA nor do I have the sit-in math classes in my major to compete with. My econ program isn't too quantitative, and financially, I can't afford to take the math classes necessary to major or minor in math. I also transferred into my university from a community college and time costed me a lot to build an undergraduate record for great recommendation letters or a chance at PhD or masters programs in Economics. Lastly and most importantly, thank you for your time and interest in attending this thread.

    Have any preference for German speaking universities/regions? If so, check also Humboldt, Bonn, Mannheim, Thubingen. You should give it a try to PSE rather than to Sciences Po. Even Paris-1 is better regarded than Sciences Po for quant econ because of the QEM master programme.
