    Re: Profile Eval & Where Should I Aim?

    Synthesizing what the last few posters have said, I think a decent strategy then is to maybe throw one or two top 20 schools into your application portfolio, while not being under the false...

    Re: COVID-19 and Prelim Exams

    At my school the comps have been changed to allow students who achieve high enough grades in the core sequence to skip potentially all of them. There will still be first-years who need to take them,...
  4. Re: Undergrad Looking for Honest Advice about pursuing an Econ PhD

    Econ departments are usually quite ok with undergrads taking grad classes. That's not the issue. I think the difference between math and economics is that economics undergrad classes are at a vastly...
  5. Re: Undergrad Looking for Honest Advice about pursuing an Econ PhD

    I actually agree more with Bayes re: taking grad micro. There is an interesting trade-off when it comes to grad micro: it is the best signal of your ability to pass your first year, because the micro...

    Re: Question About Visitation Day

    I agree with the last two commenters that the visit can be very helpful on your end in making your decision. But I do see where you are coming from, and if you think the additional information is not...

    I agree with this. I think some of dogbones' questions are unconventional, but they do seem genuine.
