    Would anyone know if they admit people they have not interviewed?

    Hoping they didn't interview me since I'm a lot of time zones away from Amsterdam

    From gradcafe, it seems no one is directly admitted, at least on the priority round. All the first posts from 2016 and 2015 are about interviews, and, last year, it took about two weeks for some admissions and rejections to appear.


    My concern is about what this interview means and how many people are called (15, 30, 50...). Does it mean you are pretty much admitted if you don't screw up and show a genuine interest, or just that you passed a first round of selection and will need to go really well and convince them to accept you?

    I was told it will take 2-3 weeks to hear from them, but I saw on gradcafe some people already got accepted.

    Re: Tinbergen Institute

    This year I am going to finish my undergraduate studies and have been thinking about applying to TI. However, I'm not sure what my chances are and if I am the candidate such an institution is looking for. My undergraduate degree was a mix of courses in economics, econometrics, finance, accounting and law but I did not specialize in any of these fields. My grades place me probably in the top10-20% of my cohort and my university is ranked in top10 in UK and top100 in the world. My quant. GRE score is 170. However, I do not have any research experience and none of my referees is a professor (both of them are Drs). Does anyone know if lack of specialization in my undergraduate degree and average references can turn out to be a big obstacle? I would be glad to hear briefly about profiles of people already admitted in previous years.

    Re: Tinbergen Institute

    Hi, everyone!

    I accept my offer from TI last week and first I would like to thank all the people that answered questions in this thread in the past, there is pretty useful stuff in here!

    I must confess that the comments about the econometrics track are not very encouraging... If someone has been there recently, do you mind telling if it is possible to survive without failing courses choosing this track?
    Also, is there anyone else accepted to start next September?

    Hi Haael,

    Just wondering what the deadline to respond to your Tinbergen was?

    Thanks

    Thanks
    From the day I received the informal offer (the letter came 2 days after), I was given about 10 days to answer (it was the second half of March and they asked for an answer before April 1st).

    But if I had to guess, for someone receiving an offer later like this week, I would expect that they give less time due to practical reasons. For example, at my host University* you can only apply to the Visa until June 1st and there is also the housing allocation, etc, so probably they cannot wait much longer for a student to decide. Of course this may be different if you already have all these stuff sorted out. Anyway, this is just me guessing - you probably can ask Judith for an extension if you need and she will tell if it is possible or not.

    Feel free to drop a pm if you have more questions.

    * students at TI needs to elect one of the three mantaining universities (VU, UvA or Erasmus) as their host. It changes basically where you will be able to get housing (Amsterdam or Rotterdam).
