If you have a prof willing to say that you are really good at research then I think ur chances are high.
    Thanks for your advice, my letter writers told me that I can expect very strong letters from them, so I'm hoping they will help (especially for making up those poor grades in math & econ..) Any other thoughts will be very much appreciated!

    Re: Profile Evaluation

    Hey all, I just realized I recorded my GPAs wrong in the original post.. my Overall GPA is 3.66/4.0 (not 3.67) and my last four semester GPA is 3.84/4.0 (not 3.87). My guess is that I made a typo in the overall GPA and computed my four semester GPA wrong.. (but these should be correct). It's a minor change, but do you guys think these will change/worsen my chances? Any input will be appreciated!

    No one is going to care about the second decimal place of your GPA.

    Also I forgot to add to my profile - I have two W's on my transcript (one W on Operations Research, and one W on a music class). I've heard mixed reviews on how they might affect application outcomes. Does anyone have any idea as to how much of an impact they'll have in my case? Thanks!

    No one will ever care about a W in music. Given the number of high level math classes and PhD level econ classes you have taken and received A's in, I don't think the W in OR will not hurt you either.
