    Re: Where will I get in (Fall 2021)

    Your resume should be no more than one page.
  5. Re: Profile Evaluation 2021/Re-applying after failing prelims

    Fair enough. Best of luck!
  6. Re: Profile Evaluation 2021/Re-applying after failing prelims

    I think you know that your performance at a non-elite program is likely going to limit your next steps, at least in a regular Econ program.

    Given your interests, therefore, you might find...
  7. Re: Starting from scratch and applying to PhD -- will this plan work?

    The thing is, this should work, but it likely won't.

    You'll find that doing well in courses and research while also working is not feasible in 3 to 4 years, maybe you could do it in 5 or 6 years....

    Re: Profile Eval, Fall 2021

    I see a number of positives in this profile. On the other hand, poor grades in math and micro are problematic. Also, it sounds like your "best" letters won't be from Econ PhDs.

    Re: COVID-19 and Admitted Students

    I'm not an immigration lawyer, but entering the US on a tourist visa when your actual purpose is to attend college would be violation of the terms of the visa and could get you deported and banned...
  13. Re: Pass/Fail for Graduate Admissions Because of CoVid-19

    If possible, do not take the pass/fail option in math or econ classes.

    Re: Brown vs. CMU Tepper vs. RA

    I don't mean to be dismissive but the obvious choice is to go to Brown.

    CMU is a great school, too, but Brown is better ranked and provides better connections and opportunities.

    Delaying...
  15. Re: Which of these Ag Econ Ph.D. programs to choose?

    Not much difference between these options. But, if you are into development, then being closer to DC will help - so I'd vote for VA Tech
