Today when i read the information about Northwestern U Phd admission.

They require applicants to write 6 most advanced Math courses and 6 most advanced economics courses.

It sounds interesting...

Anyone would like to share with us what your 6 most advanced math courses and 6 most advanced economics courses..??[clap][clap][clap][clap][clap][clap]

Hahaha.

Math:

Calc 1 (entry credit)

Calc 2

Calc 3

Linear Algebra and Diff Eqs

Stats

Stats again

Now I also have Real Analysis. But I didn't at the time.

Econ:

Econ 1

Then a year of "catch-up" economics (micro, macro, international)

Then researching with some profs on independent projects

And that is all!!

I surely have the most minimalist profile in math and econ of all of you.

And all of those were quarter-system courses.

I suppose you could count some of my physics courses, though, as upper-level math, in some cases. And course on logic, in the philosophy department, which in retrospect was very much an intro to proofs type course. But.

I love being an exception ;).

By the way, my classes start today, in about an hour and a half to be exact. So here's to my first year of PhD work. May god have mercy on my soul.

You took topology before advanced calculus?!?

Lots of places offer a course in 'point-set topology', 'introductory geometric topology', or something of the sort that only requires familiarity with some discrete mathematics and basic calculus, no advanced calculus/analysis required.

There were some concepts from analysis that I had to pick up to do some of the proofs for Topology (e.g. density of the rational numbers on the real line), but nothing I couldn't find on wikipedia.

A disclaimer, all of my "advanced" classes I took as a master's student.

Math: RA I & II; Math Stats I&II, L.Algebra, PDiffEq....

Economics: PhD Macro, PhD Econometrics, Masters Micro, Masters IO....and then I guess two from undergrad that I no longer remember.
