  1. Re: Pass/Fail for Graduate Admissions Because of CoVid-19

    If possible, do not take the pass/fail option in math or econ classes.

    Explain to your math and econ professors that you are intending to go to grad school. Hopefully, they are relaxing standards...

    Re: Brown vs. CMU Tepper vs. RA

    I don't mean to be dismissive but the obvious choice is to go to Brown.

    CMU is a great school, too, but Brown is better ranked and provides better connections and opportunities.

    Delaying...
  3. Re: Which of these Ag Econ Ph.D. programs to choose?

    Not much difference between these options. But, if you are into development, then being closer to DC will help - so I'd vote for VA Tech

    Just ask them, politely.

    "It would be great to speak with [professor name]. Just to help me prepare, should I consider this an interview that is part of my application to the PhD program at...

    Re: PhD Programs with Epilepsy

    Grad school is hard. We all need a support network. Your medical situation makes life even more complex. I would consider trying to find a suitable program closer to home.

    Re: Question About Visitation Day

    If you're going to be quitting in June to start a PhD, what is the issue with using the PTO?

    Alternatively, some admitted students visit on a day that works for them rather than on the actual...
  8. Re: Looking for a Grad level History of Economic Thought Textbook

    I'm not sure what a Grad Level History of Thought book would even look like.

    Instead, those classes would actually read Smith, Ricardo, Mill, Hume, Marx, Menger, von Mises, Hayek, Keynes, and so...

    Re: Question About Visitation Day

    Yes, you are admitted.

    You should attend the visit day if it is a school you are considering. Like fundergrad says, this is big commitment. Go check it out.

    Re: When are PhD applications scrutinized?

    I'll start them but few people contribute. The site has seen dwindling usage over the years. Plenty of lurking, but a lack of interaction. It's been a weird ten years!

    Re: CV/Resume Format & Amount of Detail?

    A resume is a short version of a CV, you seem to have it mixed up.

    Re: retake or not?

    Yeah, just take a harder probability course. Don't add an F to your transcript, and don't waste time retaking classes.

    Re: Part time PhD Economics programs

    You'll find part time programs are centered around the DC area given the different population in that area. You should look into GWU, Georgetown, American, GMU, and so on. You'll also probably find...

    Re: Phd for teaching? Looking for advice

    These positions exist. It's just that no one wants to advise a student who isn't passionate about research. On top of that, getting through a research degree is not going to be easy if you aren't...
