    Re: Economics Ph.D. Profile Evaluation

    As it stands, I think it's quite unlikely that you'll gain admission into a decent masters programme. Your best bet is to try to work your connections at where you did your masters, to try and get a...

    Re: Economics Ph.D. Profile Evaluation

    For someone seriously considering a PhD, a couple of Cs constitute a bad undergrad, not a string of Cs. Unless your letter writers are heavily connected and are willing to sell you really hard, I...

    Re: Economics Ph.D. Profile Evaluation

    It's a lot better in terms of the information it provides.

    Re: RA jobs

    You can search a bit on this forum but generally, from what I recall, GPA cutoff tend to be around 3.5 or thereabout, to help sieve through the number of applicants. Once you've survived the first...
  6. Re: Is a PhD in Economics from Sussex worth it

    It will help if you produce your current profile, the places you applied to this year, your area of interests, and primarily, your goals upon eventual completion of grad school; i.e. what kind of...

    Sticky: Re: 2019 Admission Sweat Thread

    Not many people still check this thread, given that the admission season is almost over. You should post a standalone thread to elicit better and quicker replies.
  8. Re: Econ PhD route with Triple Major: Realistic expectations?

    Post using the standard template. As it currently stands, information is incomplete, and is all over the place, which is probably one of the reasons why nobody's replied yet. You need to state the...

    Re: Real Analysis on Transcript

    There's very little value in taking it if you've already gotten As in Micro I and II, and also have complex analysis. Math grades (and specifically, real analysis, and other higher level math...

    Re: Ranking PhD programs

    Agree with what startz mention, and that is actually what I meant. Usnews is a good gauge of what a school's rank is. Once you've selected a range of schools to apply to, delve deeper into the...

    Re: Numerical Analysis vs. Complex Analysis

    You have a string of Cs and Bs for your undergraduate math courses. In my opinion, having no grade is better than a bad grade, during the admissions process. A bad grade is a definitive signal of...

    Re: Numerical Analysis vs. Complex Analysis

    As with any 3rd/4th year math course (past real analysis), doing well in them will only marginally help you in admissions, but doing poorly in them will really hurt you; by poor, I mean anything...

    Re: Profile Evaluation (2020 cycle)

    If you come from an unranked school, check to see where past students have gone on to do their PhDs at. That'll be the best gauge of how high you should realistically aim.
