Overall this is a solid profile. I don’t think the B+ in market design will matter that much as it is a field course. Do you know the mean placement of your cohort last year?
Type of Undergrad: Top 2 Canadian University
Undergrad GPA: 3.87
Type of Grad:n/a
Math Courses: Calculus (A), Multivariable Calc (A-), Linear Algebra I&II (A's), Probability and Statistics (A+), Real Analysis (A+), Differential Equations (A+), Topics in Abstract Math (basically a number theory course, B+), Functional Analysis (tbd), Complex analysis (tbd), Nonlinear optimization (tbd)
Econ Courses: Intro Micro/Macro (A-,A), Intermediate Micro/Macro (A,A-), Game Theory (A-), Advanced Macro (A), Information Economics (A+), Market Design (B+), Behavioural Economics (A), Econometrics I (A+), Applied Regression Analysis (A), IO (tbd), Financial Econ I&II (tbd), Grad Micro (tbd), Econometrics II (tbd)<br><br>Interests: IO, applied micro theory
Letters of Recommendation:
1. Prof who taught me in 2 courses, will teach in grad micro
2. AP who I RA for
3. I haven't decided
Research Experience: Will write senior thesis, RA for a year
Concerns: B+ in Market Design, due to the pandemic a lot of the grade's weight was shifted onto an assignment I did not so well in even though I did well on the tests, but I do have the option to just designate it as a pass/fail so it wouldn't affect my gpa and the grade wouldn't show up on my transcript, but I am worried this would look worse than a B+
Questions: Where should I be aiming in terms of application?
