    Masters Development Econ/Studies Profile Evaluation

    Sponsored Ad:
    Undergraduate: Top 15 US state uni
    GRE: Q168/V157/AW 4.0 (will be taking 2nd gre in late Dec)
    GPA: 3.6

    I'm interested in international development. Not interested in getting ph.d

    I think I'll apply to LSE econ, LSE int development, UW-Madison econ for sure.
    I'm still pending my decision on USC applied econ, Uni of Sussex dev studies, Tuft for econ...
    Do you think programs at Cambridge or Oxford would be a far reach for me?

    Open to any suggestion or advice on my school choice! Thanks

    If you're planning on continuing on to a PhD in the future, avoid any and all programmes that aren't purely Economics (i.e. things like International Development, Policy & Economics, Applied Economics, etc), since they will be viewed less favourably by adcoms when you eventually apply.

    You say you're not interested in a PhD, which makes this forum substantially less useful. But what are your goals if not that? Knowing your goals is probably important for answering your question...
