  1. hey

    only just saw you message, sorry for the delay!

    my profile is posted somewhere, but to summarize, I have a licentiate (=BA+MA) in economics and a BS in maths from the university of zurich, had letters from 3 economists, one of them was Ernst Fehr, and one letter of a mathematician who has been a researcher at a number of good US-universities. No publications, but a rather mathematical MA-thesis in econ. I lacked 2 points to a full TOEFL score, GRE800/560/4.5. No work experience, but have been TAing a lot, and also RAing some times.

    before I got my results, I actually had no idea about which universities I would be admitted to, and I was very surprised with my results. I guess the letters helped lot.

    ...but you've got to make the best with what you have!

    hoe that helps and good luck!

    I noticed you were admitted to all the "big" schools and I was wondering if you could tell me a bit about your profile.

    Any publications on arbitraged magazines?
    Career ? masters degree ? GRE scores?Toefl ?? etc.

    i must take every test i mentioned, but i also understand that good scores are only a must and don't guaranteed admition.

    I'm planning to apply for graduate school by the end of next year.

    This would be so helpful!!
