    Question Profile Evaluation for Fall 2019

    Sponsored Ad:
    Undergrad: Northeast Asian Top university
    GPA: 4/4.3,
    Major: Econ

    GRE:170Q/165V. But the writing is somewhat mediocre and maybe below average


    Econ Classes:
    introductory Micro: A+, intermediate Micro: A+, grad level Micro: A
    intermediate Macro: A-
    undergrad level econometrics: A, grad Level econometrics: A+
    econ Statistics: A+, Grad level Econ Statistics: A+
    two undergrad applied micro (Labor, IO): A+, B+
    one grad level applied micro : A+

    game Theory: B+, two grad level Micro Theory classes: A+, A+




    Math Classes:
    Calc 1, Linear Algebra 2: A
    Calc 2, Linear Algebra 1, Topology, Intro to analysis 1,2(Rudin's PMA level), Undergrad level Real analysis(Folland), Grad level Real analysis(Rudin's RCA): A+




    Other Experience:
    One semester RA, One semester TA


    LORs: One from my advisor(currently enrolled in Master's program), two from econ professors who gave me A+



    Two questions mainly: Any chance for Top 20? Would mediocre Gre writing matter? I am considering retaking it (but then I suspect my V would go down given that I forgot almost all the vocabularies for GRE).



    Thanks for reading Good luck to all of you.

    Maybe SNU econ, I guess. Yes, you have a decent chance to get into T20 schools. GRE AWA seems to weigh lower than other factors, given that your advisor can say something about your writing skills. Other than that, field of intention, SOP, MA dissertation and etc. would affect your application result.
    What do you mean by saying mediocre AWA? 4.0 or so?

    I know a couple students with extremely similar profiles. They both got into top 5. Apply to all the top 15 programs and don't waste anymore time worrying about admissions.
