It's actually a very rigourous programme that uses MWG as the main text during its micro sequence, but is erroneously seen as not being sufficiently "mathsy" by many (but not all) people.

    As such, if you can get into and do well at one of the other unis mentioned, then I'd suggest those masters programmes would be a better bet for getting in to a US PhD programme.

    Thanks! This was really helpful.

    Do you know anything about Warwick's postgraduate diploma? It seems like an excellent way of catching up with Econ undergrads and boosting my chances at the other programs like BGSE Bocconi and CEMFI.

    Also, if you don't mind me asking, where did you end up for your PhD? Did you stay in Europe? Where did your Warwick colleagues end up going?
