    Re: HBS vs MIT vs Princeton vs Stanford

    If the interest lies mostly in Behavioral/Experimental and micro theory, then definitely HBS, I would think. There is no real practical distinction between HBS and Harvard Econ. You share the...
  2. Re: Rising Junior: Summer Internship with Economic Consulting Firms vs On-Campus Rese

    Sample size of one here and as such only anecdotal evidence, but I did econ consulting for a couple of years, and I came in with the goal of applying to PhD programs, which I did after a year at the...
  3. Re: Summer analyst at a top 5 investment bank OR RA at a top 3 business school

    I'd probably say if you have no other research experience under your belt then definitely the RA-ship. Probably seen as more applicable experience to PhD programs (though I guess a lot has been...
  4. Re: What are the best masters programs for economics?

    I agree that many Master's programs at Columbia generally are perceived by many as more of a revenue source for the university (specially from international students who heavily make up these...

    Re: 2017 Application Sweat Thread

    I'm sure this has been talked about before in prior years' NSF threads, but these reviews (and the whole application process in general of course) are so noisy! I simultaneously received a "Poor" and...

    Re: 2017 Application Sweat Thread

    Thanks! It has indeed been a pretty random process. Was a bit surprised though at how many schools are employing the strategy of deferring applications to their own MA degrees or even other MA...

    Re: 2017 Application Sweat Thread

    Just got an email from Brown asking me to reply within 10 days if I'd be interested in their "MA track", which has no funding for the first year and might have 50% of the first-year tuition waived...

    Wonder if the NYU rejections (if real) are coming out piecemeal...
  9. Re: How to indirectly get hints on the strength of a *potential* letter?

    I can see how maybe asking for willingness to write a "strong" letter may be perceived as rude (maybe it implies you don't have full "blind" trust in their recommendation of you?), but that's...

    Re: 2017 Application Sweat Thread

    Still nothing from Brown or Northwestern... I checked and no waitlists have been posted on GC yet for either of them. Don't want to get my hopes up or those of others, but if I haven't heard back...

    Re: 2017 Application Sweat Thread

    Same question for Brown! Some rejections have been posted for each on GC, and I haven't heard anything from them at all yet. Definitely not getting my hopes up as I'll likely get them myself at some...

    Re: 2017 Application Sweat Thread

    Anyone have any idea of when Chicago, Brown, Northwestern, etc. will start releasing what are presumably all rejections at this point? Specially for the first two we're going on more than a month...

    Pretty slow day today so far... guess it's not terribly late yet today but I expected it to be a deluge given it's the last Friday of February... Last year Berkeley and Stanford both sent out their...

    I can confirm Harvard. They're calling people since early this morning apparently. Got mine at like 9:30.
