  6. Sorry to hijack an old thread, but I'll give this a shot anyway  ⁠᎓ what I'm wondering is whether to use "neither matter" or "neither matters". Assume that two things, A and B, have already been named, so the reader knows what they are. Now I want to explain that neither of those two things really matter (or is it matters) ⁠— do I say ⁠⁠᎓   ⇒ "Neither matter." or do I say ⁠⁠᎓   ⇒ "Neither matters." Please and thank you.
  7. So I've been digging in this forum trying to find any recent discussion on writing samples and couldn't find any. What do adcoms look for in a writing sample? My BA did not have a thesis component and my master's thesis text won't be anywhere near ready by the time I apply for PhD programs, and I'm not sure how much I should be worrying about this. Would a literature review submitted as a term paper for a class be enough? What if it's something different from the field I want to do research in? Should I dedicate part of my summer to a research paper to submit as a WS? Saw some guy in an old thread from 2007 say that he got into Chicago by submitting lecture notes as his writing sample, but I think that might've been a joke. Also, 2007 was a very different admissions environment than today..
  8. Hey everyone, great to have this spam space for all my worries. I'm an Indian postgrad looking to apply for PhD to the US. Honestly, I am torn between getting a job and doing a PhD. I wanted gain some experience before doing a PhD but thanks to the Pandemic, that hardly happened. I freelanced around in companies with not a proper corporate experience. I love organizational psychology (also my field of expertise) and miss it dearly. The jobs out here in India seldom consider Psychology at workplace and I have hence, ended up working in unrelated profiles. I thought, PhD might help me feel that reconnect with my passion again but I feel like am running out of time to earn good money too. I'm stuck in the middle and just wanted to vent about it. Anyone feel me?

  10. It's not really my thing, but both alternatives are possible. I'd say that lab experiments are the standard, but you're more and more expected to be able to do field experiments too. CB research typically includes multiple studies, so doing a mix of lab experiments and field experiments can benefit you, make your paper stronger. I'd recommend reading recent papers from journals like JCR to see how people conduct experiments.
  11. Hi, I received my visa yesterday and it has my name as below Given Name: ABC Surname: XYZ Whereas on the passport, it is given as: Given Name: ABC XYZ Surname: <blank> Is it going to cause me any problems at port of entry? And from where did they get the idea of bifurcating my name as I filled all my applications as FNU.
  12. where can I find complete list of GRE analogies and antonyms? Which book should I follow?

  14. Does anyone have any idea about this program ? Career prospective ? Admssion ? https://www.jbs.cam.ac.uk/programmes/research-programmes/pathways/business-economics/

  16. I'm in accounting, but I'll take a shot at your question. At a minimum, you need probably 6 courses. Calc 1, 2, 3, Linear Algebra, Intro to stats (calculus based), Intro to probability (Calc) You could also really use a proof based class or two. Real analysis would be the standard, but there are several courses that look like an intro to proofs, i.e. bridge to abstract mathematics. These would meet the math minimum for most finance PhDs. I think a full bachelor's degree would be overkill. The same courses would also be good prep for the MIT micromasters. I hadn't heard of that program, but it seems good. If you could have contact with the professors and possibly get a letter of recommendation then it would be really helpful. I will also say that microeconomics is very necessary for a PhD. Macro is a big deal if you go into asset pricing. It looks like MIT has a couple courses that would be really good in their DEDP micromasters. I hope that helps.
  17. By the way, I am in the divorce statistics. And just because of the low financial solvency. My husband and I lived in poverty, and because of this, there were many quarrels all the time. That is not enough for rent, then not enough for gasoline, then for study, then at least for some kind of rest. We even got divorced like poor people and used free documents https://onlinedivorcer.com/online-divorce-iowa, it was such a headache.
  18. At the end of the day, despite people saying trite and obvious statements like "just work your hardest!!!" OP is correct. Sadly, the missing data matters for the admission process. If you think you can't get an A at a top school => select into a less rigorous school to guarantee an A. Here you use the missing data to your advantage (We don't know what the student would have gotten at a top school if they went there, but they maxed out their realized outcome!). If you credibly think you can get an A => go to top school. Adcoms do have some vague understanding of grade inflation/deflation, so you will have higher odds of acceptance given an A from a top school than an A from a lower school, so this partially compensates for the gamble of getting a B. But they do not have precise info on grad deflation/inflation and even if they did it's hard to put an exact weight, so this adds to the observed "randomness" in admissions (sometimes the 3.7 kid from a top school is accepted, sometimes the 4.0 kid from a less rigorous school is accepted). This effect operates with not only selection of undergrad universities, but also with respect to coursework selected within that school. Sadly the incentives are now to play it as safe as possible and get a GPA as close to 3.9-4.0. I went to a T15, took very difficult pure math and computer science classes (abstract algebra, functional analysis, measure-theoretic probability theory, operating systems, software engineering) and hurt my GPA. I got into a T15, waitlisted at a few of the lower T10's. A friend of mine with basically the same profile (both of us predoc'd at T3, similar rec writers at home institution), but took easier classes than I, was much more strategic about spacing out hard coursework, and took "hard-sounding" courses where the professor was known to be lenient with grades. Basically got into every T10 school including the holy grail (HMS). On the one hand those classes have definitely helped me tremendously with challenging year 1 coursework; even for econ PhD students my mathematical maturity is high, PhD econometrics is much easier for me now with such a background in analysis, and the computer science coursework has made any programming in macro much easier for me than classmates. Yet it's hard not to conclude taking these classes have hurt me in the admissions process.
  19. Firstly, congratulations on getting accepted into these programs! Disclaimer, I do not have the foresight/wisdom your letter writers might have. With that in mind, since location, rank, and funding are similar I would really only consider placements, culture, and research interests (on the condition that you're certain you know what you wish to study). To gauge culture, I recommend you speak to as many PhD candidates as possible and ask them about level of support they received in years three through six.
  20. Uni #1: American University Uni# 2 (late offer): George Washington University
  21. I have an interest in working towards a Finance PhD, but I have concerns about my math/educational preparation. I have a BA/MA in History as well as an MBA (general). My mathematics background is limited to AP Calculus AB back in high school, well over a decade ago. I realize that a PhD in business will demand single and multivariate calculus, linear and matrix algebra, etc. Unfortunately, I live in a fairly rural state. Most of the universities around me do not offer higher level mathematics (beyond basic calculus). My alma mater does offer a very good program in my current city, but the courses are full-time undergraduate. They are only offered during the day. I work full-time for a national company and they offer a very generous tuition benefit, but only for degree-seeking students. What are my options? I can do self-study without a transcript. There is a Micromasters in Data Science from MIT, which I am refreshing some of these math skills for (https://micromasters.mit.edu/ds/). Or would a PhD program only consider course credit from a transcript? My other option is to do online course work from Indiana University - East (https://www.iue.edu/online/degrees-certificates/bachelor-of-science-mathematics.html) or Eastern New Mexico University (https://www.enmu.edu/academics/degrees-programs/online-programs/online-undergraduate-degrees/bachelor-online/online-mathematics-bachelors). In-person coursework is not an option. The university I graduated from is too expensive for my tuition benefit. The two 'flagship' universities in my state are also only day-time programs and are a several hours drive from me. Thanks!
  22. Ignore the difference is stipend. It's trivial compared to your lifetime income/utility.
  23. Hello everyone Of the seven universities I applied to last fall (Econ Ph.D.), I got accepted into four. One of them made a fully-funded offer, which I accepted around April 15th. Last week, however, I got contacted by another university (better ranked and more suited to my research interests) saying they wanted to offer me a fully funded admission (the stipend is over 3k higher than the offer I took). The professor I talked to said they didn't offer me funding in the first round because of my GRE scores (Q164, V162), though he was in favor of making an offer in the first round given that I had taken real analysis and did well at that class. Long story short, I don't know if choosing this last offer over the one I already accepted is the right call. The first university has always shown interest in having me join their faculty, but the second one is better academically and offers a higher stipend. Any thoughts? Thank you.
  24. A national curriculum for schools. For an educational system to thrive a curriculum is essential because it acts like a guide. However, in my view, while a basic national curriculum is obviously needed, it should have some flexibilities depending on regions, communities etc. It is admitted that a basic national curriculum at school level will play crucial roles. Firstly, a common core curriculum will make the students aware of the basic principles of the education and the reason behind acquiring knowledge. Secondly, a common fundamental knowledge will make the students informed, and productive citizens. Thirdly, because of a general curriculum, it will be convenient for the college faculty to anticipate required curricula for higher study. And finally, the basic curriculum will equip the students with necessary preconditions that are required to thrive a democratic nation. However, a exclusive national curriculum will pose certain problems. First of all, who will be in charge of making the curriculum? Who will decide what types of courses to include and what to exclude? In all likelihood, it will be the federal legislators or the member of parliaments. They all have some quirky notion of what the children should learn and should not learn. Hence, there will have some dogma and biasness in the education system. At the same time, theses political leaders are susceptible to influence-peddling of the lobbyists who are only concern with their own interests, even these harmful for children education. Secondly, there is a tremendous possibility that an exclusive national curriculum will bring political bias among the children-the future citizen of a nation. The curriculum can be used to disseminate propaganda by ruling party which in turn can hamper the main purpose of education- enlightenment. Moreover, the curriculum can be designed as such it will act as a manipulator of children and certainly, it will have a prolonged effect on the entire nation because these children will grow up with misinformation and fictitious knowledge, that is actually intentionally imposed on them. Finally, in countries with diverse cultural and traditional heritage, an exclusive curriculum might ignite racism. For instance, in the USA, which is elephantine in size and harbour a score of population who are culturally heterogeneous, a one size fits all principle might be proven drastic. Because by creating an exclusive curriculum for all, certain race, culture, community might be excluded from the curriculum. Hence, it will create a gap of knowledge of those cultures, traditions and races among the children at the same time they might contain negative connotation about the excluded communities. Finally, a national curriculum for school might act as a two fold sword. It can enhance and shape the children for future, at the same it may mislead the prospective citizens of the nation about their own country’s people. Therefore, I believe that a homogeneous curriculum will work perfectly when there will be some flexibilities to add or eliminate based on state, race, religion, community etc.
  25. If the professor publishes in finance journals, that's fine. If mostly in law journals, then the recommendation will probably be less effective.
