Profile:

Type of Undergrad: B.S. Math, B.A. Econ (double major) from Tsinghua University (top 2 in China)

Undergrad GPA: overall 3.74 math:3.8 econ:3.83 (our university uses a 100 scale, I convert to 4.0 scale myself)

Type of Grad: No

Grad GPA: No

GRE: V630 Q800 AW3.5

TOEFL:111/120

Math Courses: Mathmatical Analysis I II III (book of Zorich), Advanced Algebra I II, Abstract Algebra, Ordinary Differential Equations, Measures and integrals (book of Royden), Probability theory (measure based, book of K.L. Chung), PDE, complex analysis, Mathematical Statistics (in progress)

Econ Courses (grad-level): Advanced Micro(97/100); International Trade (93/100); Energy and Environmental Econ (92/100) all rank 1st or 2nd

Econ Courses (undergrad-level): intermediate micro and macro, econometrics, game theory, developmental econ, economic growth, environmental econ

Other Courses:

Letters of Recommendation: Two econ prof graduated from Harvard (not sure whether it is solid); two or three econ assistant prof who know me well; two math professors (coursework)

Research Experience: A working paper, not published, could be used as writing sample. (About theory of the firm)

Teaching Experience:No

Research Interests: Micro theory esp. Contract theory, theory of the firm, implementation theory

SOP: Working on it.

Concerns: Overall GPA Rank is not very high, no good recommendations, no publications (I'm sending my working paper, it's under review of the Annual Conference of the Royal Economic Society), several math courses did not get above 90; low AW;
