  1. Man, CEMFI is like hell. Has solid placement but if you come here, prepare yourself to doing nothing else than solving problem sets for two years. Academically it is very good but non-academic environment is very bad. I (and many other people) feel suffocating here
  2. He should also think about the reaction of the professors of the department. Probably they won't be very happy, especially if he got scholarship/funding.
  3. This also depends to the school that you will transfer, I guess. For example if you are going to a shool with a ranking of #55, this is not very meaningful. Of course this depends on your profile, etc. But as you are at the top of your class, it seems like you have a high probability of transferring to a significantly better program.
  4. On the department's website, it seems as one of the first years metrics courses did not have an instructor. Also, it is rumored that Startz is leaving, so who do you think will teach the first year metrics courses? About macro; do you think that Turnovsky will continue to teach core macro sequence next year?
  5. By the way, could any of U Washington people tell about the workload of teaching assistants? Is it crushing, or is it at a reasonable amount?
  6. Funnily, one of my friends e-mailed Minnesota to ask why he got rejected and he was told that they had made a clerical mistake. They told that he was listed very highly on the waitlist now :)
  7. People, this is a little off the topic but it would be fantastic if we opened a thread that we ask & share data sources.
  8. I also got the e-mail asking about the level of my interest in the program. However, it is very hard to answer this now since most of my applications haven't resulted yet. I guess most of the people who got the e-mail are in the same situation. It could be better if they sent the e-mail one month (or something like that) later.
  9. Some schools send results even in the weekends. I don't remember the school, but this happened just last week.
  10. About Duke acceptances; I don't think they are fake but I find it strange that there is no mention of the waitlist.
  11. That's exactly what I've been wondering. Why do they ask other schools I apply? That's none of their business.
  12. Sure he has right to tell what he thinks. But I completely disagree with him. By April, we will see where gkhn will be admitted. By the way, gkhn, what about your SOP?
  13. What is your AWA score? I think this score will help you to get over the cut-off.
  14. :hmm:I am not really a micro-loving person, but I will consider this if I get admitted. Thank you for your answer.
