    I agree. I should have specified that I think a masters in mathematics might be a useful way to keep yourself between application attempts. It seems to have worked for me but I don't know what the data looks like more generally.

    mrmac3, I'm also applying with a math masters this round so it should be interesting to see how things work out for the both of us. Is your masters from a U.S institution or abroad?

    It is from a fairly low ranked American institution (~80 in econ and ~130 in math).

    Master's in math is also uncommon and does not seem to be a big boost based on past data on this forum, but the sample is probably too small to give significance either way. Students interested in theory would probably benefit in the long run. Most other econ students only need 1-2 real analysis courses at an undergrad level for their entire graduate economic careers. (OP is interested in experimental, so more math is certainly not going to be useful)
