    Re: When are PhD applications scrutinized?

    I'll start them but few people contribute. The site has seen dwindling usage over the years. Plenty of lurking, but a lack of interaction. It's been a weird ten years!

    Re: CV/Resume Format & Amount of Detail?

    A resume is a short version of a CV, you seem to have it mixed up.

    You should send the brief version (which should be the resume). However, neither your CV nor resume matters much either way.

    Re: retake or not?

    Yeah, just take a harder probability course. Don't add an F to your transcript, and don't waste time retaking classes.

    Re: Part time PhD Economics programs

    You'll find part time programs are centered around the DC area given the different population in that area. You should look into GWU, Georgetown, American, GMU, and so on. You'll also probably find...

    Re: Phd for teaching? Looking for advice

    These positions exist. It's just that no one wants to advise a student who isn't passionate about research. On top of that, getting through a research degree is not going to be easy if you aren't...

    Re: Flyouts to visit places for free?

    Regardless of the moral issues here, schools in America and Canada will typically only pay for one or maybe two nights of accommodation when visiting. They'll also only pay your expenses if you...

    Re: Profile Evaluation - Fall 2020

    Extremely competitive. You will need good performance in a good master's (Duke, NYU, programs in Europe, and so on) to have a good shot.

    Re: Profile Evaluation - Fall 2020

    The finance/business work experience and online master's won't help you at all for econ admissions. In fact, they work against you because it's not clear why you would now want to do a PhD in Econ. ...
  10. Re: Georgetown vs Wisconsin vs Maryland vs UCLA

    Your specific research interests will likely change but I'd be less certain your broad career goals will change. Therefore, I'd recommend UMD or Georgetown.

  13. Re: Choosing between programs (UAB/BGSE/PennState/SSE)

    I find the cost of living in the five states I've lived in the US and my home country (Ireland) to be very comparable.

    Moreover, to the extent that something is "free" in Europe, it is being paid...

    Re: First Year Econ Phd & Research

    I notice that you apologized that some people were offended, rather than actually apologizing for belittling the work of fellow economists.

    You then double down and say that "the reason why...

    I don't find this post helpful.
