    Re: Mentioning Math papers in Econ SOP?

    While I can't speak of how adcoms perceive it, it definitely seems like a poor use of time. Echoing what's said above, a single polished paper is better than two mediocre ones; quality over quantity....

    Re: Profile Evaluation

    Given your current grades, and the fact that you come from a Top 20, there's no real reason to apply to schools below Top 40, in my opinion. It'll be a waste of money. Just focus your application on...

    Re: Interesting statistics

    The admit number will always be higher than the final entering class since people who get into top 40 schools, for example, will usually hold multiple offers, and adcoms know that.

    Re: Interesting statistics

    A sizeable portion of applicants apply to more than 5 schools each year. If we were to assume that an applicant receives 1.5 offers on average (very conservative), the acceptance rate would fall to...

    Re: Visa Issues for Fall 2020 Cohort

    Mine's actually the reverse. Flights are available right now, but the US Visa Office has suspended all routine nonimmigrant visa appointments. I've been stuck in the cancelled/reschedule appointment...

    Visa Issues for Fall 2020 Cohort

    Any other international student starting this Fall having issues/delays with getting their student visa?

    It's really quite troublesome. Can't firm up apartment rentals and flights if the visa...

    Re: MRes as bridge to the PhD

    Creating more new threads won't get you more responses. People are less likely to respond to someone spamming threads.

    Placement information are all available online. If they aren't, you can just...

    Re: Fall 2021 Profile Evaluation

    You should try to get letters from economics faculty. Having 1 non-econs to write your letter might be fine if he/she has something good to say, but 2 might be too much.

    Given that you currently...

    Re: Profile Eval & Where Should I Aim?

    With regards to the ranking, you can just use the USNEWS ranking of schools. That's the ranking that's most commonly referred to.

    With regards to which range of schools to apply, you should...

    Re: Please Help! Fall 2021 Econ PhD Eval

    Just a comment. Strong letters typically refer to letters that can inform others on your potential to do academic research, not about how 'smart' you are. A stellar letter stating that you are a...
  12. Re: Will a potential publication help in my case?

    Your current grades notwithstanding, if you perform well and impress your supervisors during your pre-doc in the Top 10, pretty much anywhere is possible on the backs of strong letters from renowned...

    Re: Profile Eval & Where Should I Aim?

    This is terrible advice.

    Please don't delude applicants by providing highly optimistic assessments. Virtually all Top 20 schools mention the implicit requirement of Real Analysis. It will only end...
  14. Re: Should I just pretend I haven't done this master's (because of my grades in it)?

    Speak to your letter writers about what they think should be your next steps (whether to pursue another masters, try for a PhD, and if so, where to apply), not fellow students/seniors.

    You should...
  15. Re: Should I just pretend I haven't done this master's (because of my grades in it)?

    You should aim for at least a 165 for the Quantitative section in the GRE to boost your chances of getting in.

    I can't speak to your chances of getting into these programmes but just because a...
