I am applying for PhD in Economics USA and UK. I have two Graduate degrees in Economics: First one is in MSc in Economics from really good university in UK (top 10) but my performance in it is very average and other one is in Mathematical Economics from good university in France with overall GPA 3.6/4. I am confused whether should I report my first masters in my Phd application, could you guys help me out? Please!
The story is that I had a successful BA in Economics degree from India but it did not had math exposure. So i did not have any mathematical training which would have prepared me for my MSc degree. Honestly, I was not aware that I really need high level mathematics for graduate degree in Economics. So I had hard times during my first master. After finishing my masters, I went to do another master which provided good training in maths and economics both. Here, the mathematical training really helped me to perform well. So i am confused now to report my first master as the score from it is ver low and it will lower my chances to get in good Phd program.
What do you think everyone?
