Are you planning to apply this fall for PhD programs starting next fall? Will you be doing any RA during the year you have off?
I would really appreciate it if someone could give me a realistic take on admissions possibilities here. I know that I want to do research and teach.
Type of Undergrad: Liberal arts college: Honors Economics, Mathematics, Philosophy Minor (probably top 30? LAC)
Undergrad GPA: Overall 3.98, Math 4.0, Econ lower than overall
Type of Grad: N/A
Grad GPA: N/A
Math: Calc I and II in HS, Calc III, Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Intro to Proofs, Real Analysis, Abstract Algebra, Probability, Math Stats, a ML course focused on language, Advanced Multivariate Calculus. I got an A in all my math classes.
Econ: Intro Micro, Intro Macro, Micro Theory (A-), Macro Theory, Intro Metrics, Advanced International Macro, Advanced Macro (a ts forecasting class), Labor (A-),Math Econ. All classes Aís or A+ís except for the ones noted.
Other Courses: Intro Programming, some Poli Sci stuff
Recommendations: Iíve asked one prof, havenít asked another yet, but I think at least two very good ones.
Research Experience: Wrote a Honors Thesis.
Research Interests: Macro/Monetary. Maybe a bit of theoretical IO or Health.
Concerns: I didnít go to a top school for undergrad. My research experience is also pretty sparse.
Other: At the school I went to, I won the award for both top Economics and top Mathematics graduating major.
Applying to: Was hoping for top 10, would still be very happy to get into top 20.
