Two or three conference presentations
GRE, GMAT perhaps
Started third working paper
PS. I'm a 2nd year master student.
I thought this may be a cool topic to discuss with other highly motivated students of economics.
Without further ado, what are your goals for the summer? What things do you want to learn, what books do you want to read, how are you going to become a better economist, etc. ?
I'll start things off:
-Learn real analysis; get through Rudin.
-Go through Alvin Roth's experimental econ lecture notes online.
-Knock out the GRE.
-Read a Monetary History of the United States.
-Finish my econ thesis and math thesis.
-Narrow my list of grad schools I'll apply to.
-Begin working on my NSF app.
-Learn the ways of the "mathemagician" Arthur Benjamin.
-Silly, but know every Nobel Prize winner, what year they won, and understand contributions to economics.
-Oh yeah, relax and enjoy a few beers.
I look forward to everyone's responses.
I will be:
-Taking a game theory course this summer, so I'm going to focus on learning as much Game Theory as I can in the next 6 weeks.
-Doing research with the health economist and chief scientist at a major health insurance provider .
-Reading through a few journal articles per week to narrow my senior thesis idea and eventually begin a lit review.
-Reading for leisure nightly.
-Relaxing on the weekends: hanging out with friends, drinking beer, enjoying the summer.
-Learn to ride a bicycle
-Learn LaTex (probably just LyX)
-Make a good dent in my stack of books
-Play through a bit of my backlog of video games (and get a crazy high rank in Halo)
My Profile and Results Stanford GSB Finance '16
In order of priority....
- learn Matlab (this needs to get done urgently)
- have fun
- finish the two databases I am preparing for myself
(I am pretty sure with "have fund" up there on the priority list I will never get to do the stuff below)
- read papers
- do a bit of review on first-year micro i took this year
