    My Two Cents Top-3 Finance publications and applications

    Sponsored Ad:
    I know that a lot of people work as an RA for 2 years before they apply for PhD programs. I just started as an RA at top-5 department. How common is it for people to have co-author and have a top-3 Finance publication while working as an RA? Is this a realistic expectation to have? And conditional on having such a publication, how much does it help with the applications?

    I'd say that's a very unrealistic expectation. RAs are not co-authors. In fact, if I received an application from a perspective PhD student who was listed as a co-author on a high quality publication, I would do a little digging to try and figure out what exact role the applicant had on the paper.

    I most years, I would say zero percent of finance PhD applicants already have a top-3 publication. It's not even that common for job market candidates to have a top-3 publication at the time of graduation. So having one 5 years earlier is extremely rare.
