  1. Re: Application evaluation (non-econ background for low-ranked schools)

    Sure, you're right. I was referring to Econ dept, 'cause OP explicitly asked about Econ. I said Idk much about finance programs so I didn't wanna comment on that
  2. Re: Application evaluation (non-econ background for low-ranked schools)

    First, you should ask your advisor to proofread the letter. There are some obvious grammar errors that I see.

    Second, in light of your lack of math courses, you should convince him to talk more...
  3. Re: Application evaluation (non-econ background for low-ranked schools)

    If this is the case, maybe the curriculum must be different from when it was in years past. If that's the case, the appropriate place to mention it would be in your SOP for you and LORs for your LOR...
  4. Re: Application evaluation (non-econ background for low-ranked schools)

    I agree with tm_member.

    No, a calculus course at the university level in Vietnam does NOT cover analysis, although Vietnamese students do some analysis in high school. The linear algebra course is...

    Re: PhD Profile Evaluation: Fall 2019

    I think your advisor is right about the schools ranked below 30. I think he/she might be a bit too optimistic about your chances at the 15-25 ranked schools. I'd say you are competitive for those...
  6. Re: Co-Author In Non-Econ Publication/Non-Econ Experience in Application

    To be honest, I think you should ask yourself this question: if I were to ask a random economist at the schools I target what he or she thinks about the journal I have published in, what would the...
  7. Re: Co-Author In Non-Econ Publication/Non-Econ Experience in Application

    Unless that publication is in a journal well-known to economists (JASA is one that comes to mind for me), it probably does not matter much. The TA experience wouldn't hurt, but it wouldn't help...

    Re: Need some good advice

    If you think economics works like a meritocracy, then you're wrong.

    Re: Switch from Finance to Econ

    OP posted the same thread on EJMR (Switch from Finance to Econ << Economics Job Market Rumors), and I think even though EJMR has problems of its own, it has some people who really do from time to...

    Re: Where to find RA jobs

    No. Probably the only way to be good at coding is doing it. Reading others' code and think "oh of course that's how ABC is done in code. I can do it too" is like committing plagiarism, or like...
  14. Re: Difference between Economic Policy & Public Economics?

    So this is an example of what I meant when I said your knowledge of PhD study is limited. Almost all DSGE research uses Dynare, which is entirely MATLAB-based. MATLAB is nowhere near dead, or as...
