Hi all,

I am a final year Economics and Philosophy student in the UK and I am planning to do a PhD at a top US institutions following my MSc in Europe. I got masters offers from the top European departments but I am afraid that my limited background in mathematics will prevent me from being top of my class and therefore being accepted to a good PhD.

I was thinking about taking a gap year and doing a distance learning Mathematics diploma from LSE (Mathematics | University of London (https://london.ac.uk/courses/mathematics)) in order to improve my maths background.

Do you think taking the diploma will improve my chances for the PhD? Following the diploma, would you recommend me going to CEMFI or LSE MSc Econ?
