    Re: Econ Terminal Masters to PhD Evaluation

    Terminal economics masters offer almost no value for econ undergraduates since the level of rigour is comparable to intermediate undergraduate coursework. You're better off focusing your attention on...
  2. Re: What is the best master program for HRM(good) US Phd?

    Bgse has two tracks in their programme. The advanced track is extremely difficult since it's essentially first year graduate coursework simply labelled as a masters.

    Re: PhD Economics or Public Policy Profile Eval

    In case it wasn't clear, when Public Policy PhD programmes are mentioned in this forum, they only refer to programmes that have economics as a concentration. Not all public policy programmes have...
  4. Re: No Linear Algebra and Calc II and III, NEED TO APPLY FOR PHD ECONOMICS, WHAT DO I

    Math courses, for most intents and purposes, refer to undergraduate courses. You almost never need any graduate-level mathematics for most fields in economics.

    Why not list the classes you've...

    Re: How many referees?

    The question you ought to ask yourself is what information is getting conveyed by the 4th letter than isn't already mentioned in the first 3 letters?

    Re: SOP for Review

    In my opinion, this contains too much fluff which is uninformative. This isn't a letter for undergraduate admissions. Your letter should succinctly convey information that's pertinent to the...
  7. Re: No Linear Algebra and Calc II and III, NEED TO APPLY FOR PHD ECONOMICS, WHAT DO I

    Look at where past graduates have gone on to, from your alma mater. If there's no one who broke into top 10, realistically, you can't expect any different, unless you were an anomaly during your...

    Re: PhD Economics or Public Policy Profile Eval

    PPol programmes might, in principle, require less math from applicants, but given that people who are interested in applied micro also tend to apply to PPol programmes, you'll be competing with them...
  9. Re: How Competitive Is My Profile for Fed RA? : And One Additional Question

    I can't answer questions pertaining to the Fed. For that, jirousseau will provide better advice, if he chances upon this thread. However, is there any particular reason why you're applying solely for...

    Re: GPA cutoff that gets screened out?

    Like what was mentioned in your profile evaluation thread, the strength of the letters from your supervisors during your pre-doc at the top 10 will largely drive the success of breaking into top 10s....
  11. Re: Profile Evaluation: PhD Econ/Finance with weaker grades but high research potenti

    To the best of my knowledge, the GPA requirement - and GRE scores - serves as a mechanism to thin the pile of feasible applicants, before adcoms even begin to look at packages. Thus, if your GPA...
  12. Re: Profile Evaluation: PhD Econ/Finance with weaker grades but high research potenti

    The GRE Math test will be a complete waste of time. It's something you actually need to prepare for, if you want to get a good grade, unlike the quant section of the GRE; time that's better spent...
  13. Re: Rising Senior curious about where I could get into now

    As always, the surest way to know for certain is to see what kind of schools students in the past got into. You should be able to confidently expect more or less the same range of schools, unless...
