    Re: CEMFI or LSE EME?

    Hey, a dreck sighting. You should listen to this guy; he send to know what he's talking about...
  2. The reason they don't require you to do the...

    The reason they don't require you to do the coursework in the PhD is that they expect you to have done the coursework before in an MPhil/MRes/MSc course. You're unlikely to get admitted to a European...

    Nope. You have no guarantee of funding even if you get a distinction in the EME programme. In fact, your results from EME aren't available till around June, but the department will have allocated...

    Ah, no, it wasn't. They were about two weeks apart. I missed Michigan's fly-out but went to BU's. Visited Michigan on the same trip.

    Oh, I think you misunderstood my other posts. I think LSE is a great place, and I don't regret staying here instead of going to Michigan. I just think people may have some expectations about LSE that...

    I'm not sure if this is just for LSE, but I believe the ESRC waived the UK/EU requirement for economics PhDs. I know of non-UK/EU students with ESRC funding at LSE.

    I'm told Michigan is an amazing place for labour and public. I don't have much information about the department at Wisconsin, though, so I can't compare. Mathemagician's post above sounds accurate,...

    The distinction between an EU student and a non-EU international student probably doesn't matter for program outcomes. It does matter for tuition fees, though, and this difference is substantial.

    Whether he is, in fact, the most influential is debatable. That being said, he is indeed very influential. The thing about Robert Lucas, though, is that, despite having spent five years studying...

    Though, if you find the idea of doing a rigorous masters program in economics as repulsive as the idea of eating deer penis, perhaps a PhD isn't for you. :)



    Unfortunately, I don't know much...
  11. LSE does rolling admissions for the EME, so you...

    LSE does rolling admissions for the EME, so you should receive a response a about two months after you apply. This also means that the chances of admission is weakly decreasing over time.
  12. Does the statistics programme at Harvard have a...

    Does the statistics programme at Harvard have a history of placing students into economics PhD programmes? I wouldn't imagine they do (statistics PhDs are probably more likely), but I figure you may...
  13. I guess I should qualify this by saying that the...

    I guess I should qualify this by saying that the reason why I think LSE masters programs aren't great at being a stepping stone towards a top PhD program is that other places (like other top masters...

    Or, you know, the author could be leaving it to you to fill in those gaps. Many maths texts do this.
  15. What gave you this impression? I think that the...

    What gave you this impression? I think that the masters programmes at LSE are terrible at placing students into top PhD programmes, including LSE's own. I'm in the MRes/PhD programme at LSE now, and...
