So missed out on admission for 2008/2009, and now i have a couple of issues.

Firstly I haven't done any meaningful work this year (been doing menial work just to get little money together), so will that be a negative point against my future applications?

Secondly does anyone know of good places to RA at for next year, ideally either in the areas of experimental/behavioural Economics or game theory/industrial organistation as these are the only areas i feel confident of my abilities to be an effective RA in at this point? I don't really mind moving anywhere, but i'm only fluent in English.

Thanks in advance!

Bump! Someone must at least have a opinion the the first point, whether or not being out of academia for a year when the application is made will have an effect on future applications?

you should probably try to sign up to take a math class for the fall just to show your not totally packing it in for them adcoms.

Then if you are just doing menial work its not as bad
