No letter grades? Evergreen State alum, by chance?
I'm not the strongest applicant, but a year on the job hunt has me convinced finding a good position with only an Econ BA is tough. I'm looking to apply to an Econ PhD program, because of the potential for funding and a love of research. I would consider calling it quits after getting the complimentary Masters, but that's another conversation, maybe.
My profile has flaws, but I am optimistic I have a shot at lowly ranked programs.
no letter grades, moderate performance in Econ classes, Lin Alg, Diff EQ, calc 1&2, Real Analysis 1
wrote a decent senior honors thesis using SAS
have worked non-Econ research assistant jobs since graduating
undergrad inst. has moderate rep but good grad-placement (small, public liberal arts college in US, top 50)
so, I am interested in the economic demography/labor/human resources and see myself working in the public/nonprofit sector, likely outside of academia.
Can anyone recommend programs ranked, say, 50th or lower that have strengths in those fields?
I'd be tremendously grateful.
BTW - Thomas Herndon, a graduate student at UMass-Amherst who successfully challenged Reinhart and Rogoff, two Harvard Professors, about their methodology in a paper promoting austerity, is an Evergreen State grad.
