    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...

    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...
  9. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
  13. Re: Profile Evaluation (low GPA/math + good research/recs)

    A masters in math is a terrible idea. It's a waste of money since the material covered in graduate level mathematics have virtually no uses in modern economics right now. It's significantly cheaper...
  14. Re: which course should i take in my senior year?

    If you post your profile, it'll be more informative.

    That being said, attending math camp is irrelevant from a signalling point of view, since you won't be graded and therefore, have no...

    Re: Profile Evaluation for Fall '21

    Whether you apply straight to grad school or not depends on the goals you wish to achieve. Are you only eyeing Top 10 or Top 20 programmes? If so, depending on where past students have gotten into,...
