    More broadly, I'm just a bit bored with the consulting work and the fairly long promotion time frame. I could stick around at my firm for the next 6 years instead of doing a PhD, but I would end up at the same level as being hired out of PhD, making less, with not much opportunity for advancement after that. Sure, I lose 6 years at 100K+, but I think I would die if I had to spend 6 more years making Excel charts instead of 6 years actually getting smarter, studying things I'm interested in, etc. I'm not obsessed with money - just having a comfortable, interesting, and fulfilling life is good enough for me.

    As for post-PhD opportunities, I do realize it's very hard to get a good academic job. For that reason, I'm completely OK with a career in industry after PhD. But having a PhD seriously improves your industry options. It gives you a bit of a restart, it increases your starting and max salary, and it allows you to eventually become a testifying expert or something similar eventually. Can't really do that without the degree.
    Nice speech! I guess in the end we maximize our utility/happiness in our life not the amount of wealth.

    For those of you who are also applying to business econ programs - has anyone heard from Berkeley Haas BPP, Chicago Booth Behavioral Science, UCSD Rady, Michigan Ross or NYU Stern?

    Based on GradCafe, so far looks like American, Clemson, and Ohio State have gotten back, along with some very early admits from Stanford.

    For Health Econ people, I've also heard from a friend that Minnesota HRSPA has gotten back to some.

    Haven't heard about any B-schools getting back (except for the one somewhat dubious interview listed for HBS on GradCafe).

    That's all I've got for now. The anxiety continues to build!

    There is a Harvard acceptance on GradCafe. My first instinct is that it is probably fake, but just in case: has anyone heard anything?

    I feel you man. This wait is grinding, especially after all this effort and time we have put into. It's nice we have this sweat thread to vent.
