    Re: Int'l student, where to take masters?

    Does Cornell AEM MS have solid PhD placements? I keep hearing that masters in "applied economics" aren't useful for applying to PhDs.

    Also what do you mean by Chicago MAXSS and MARCM?
  2. Re: Is the Tufts MS any good for getting into a top 20 PhD program?

    Hey, so I got the placement info for Tufts:

    Re: Pre-doc/Full-time RA, or Econ Masters?

    I'm just impressed at how most people seem to be sure they want to get a PhD so early in their academic career. It took me four years after graduating to realize I wanted to get mine.

    Re: Pre-doc/Full-time RA, or Econ Masters?

    Is this really the case for most econ BAs? I know a lot of them that graduate with Calc II and intermediate stats.
  5. Re: Is the Tufts MS any good for getting into a top 20 PhD program?

    My main concern is that the PhD program doesn't look that good. But it's a lot newer than the MS so I don't know if one says anything of the other.
  6. Re: Is the Tufts MS any good for getting into a top 20 PhD program?

    And how is the Tufts faculty? I don't have an econ background so I can't recognize big names just looking at the faculty list.
  7. Is the Tufts MS any good for getting into a top 20 PhD program?

    Recently discovered this program and I'm thinking I might be a good fit. However, they don't post any info on placements into PhD programs. Does anyone know if it's worth it?

    Re: Need help defining a roadmap

    Thanks! This was really helpful.

    Do you know anything about Warwick's postgraduate diploma? It seems like an excellent way of catching up with Econ undergrads and boosting my chances at the other...

    Re: Need help defining a roadmap

    I've looked for the data. Warwick doesn't publish PhD placements for its MSc program.

    You're right, we do have data from some of the schools he posted. But like I mentioned at the beginning of...

    Re: Need help defining a roadmap

    So Warwick MSc wouldn't be considered "very rigorous"? I see it ranked similarly to schools Tutonic mentioned (Bocconi, CEMFI, BGSE. Maybe Bocconi has better name recognition).

    Re: Need help defining a roadmap

    Would it be a good idea to apply for “graduate diplomas”? I know Warwick has one that leads into their MSc. Paris 1 also has the MMEF.

    Is this a common path towards a PhD for people without the...

    Re: Need help defining a roadmap

    I appreciate all the advice and I’ll certainly take more math classes.

    The International Economic Policy master definitely lets you take high level math classes and has a ton of intermediate (and...

    Need help defining a roadmap

    The recent news about Duflo/Banerjee/Kremer has made me really interested in doing development economics (my goal would be to participate in the impact evaluations/RCTs done by J-PAL/IPA/Etc).
