  1. Re: Help needed from all the people who've done an phd or are currently doing one in

    You do not necessarily need to major in math for a PhD in economics, but it definitely helps. Short of majoring in math, you should take as much math as is relevant (which is more than what people...

    Re: help! math courses

    You have not taken something like real analysis? You should take the basic proofs course. That will be what your first year econ courses will be like the first year.
  3. Re: Good university but average grades. Looking for suggestions

    If you think you've turned things around since your freshman year, your math grades now and next semester are crucial. If you're not getting straight A's and mastering the the material from now on...
  4. Re: Any suggestion on macroeconomics/time series application?

    You should probably post a full profile (see Roll Call thread for examples).

    In terms of your interests, keep in mind that a lot of people change their minds after the first year of grad school....
  5. Re: How significant is the added value of taking grad micro as an undergrad?

    First of all, you do not need to be "scrambling". Your profile is strong enough for top 10-13, so any value added will be pushing you towards the top 5 instead of the top 13. I doubt that grad micro...
  6. Re: Where to take math / stats courses as a non-degree student?

    I would highly disagree with taking it at a community college. In fact, I'm surprised community colleges even have real analysis. Even if you get a good grade, it will be highly discounted. There's a...

    Re: Who should I ask for a rec letter?

    I'm going to dissent and say that (1) and (3)... or (2) and (3) look like good combinations. The reason I like #3 is that:
    (a) recommendations praising RA work sometimes gets repetitive
    (b) an...

    Re: Michigan Fall 2016 Cohort

    I don't live in Northwood. The only comment I have about your housing is that it's very far from Lorch hall, so make sure you get used to the transportation (buses and everything). Other than that,...

  10. Re: Summer plan suggestion, taking math classes or self-learning Python?

    The bottom line is that you can be an absolute expert at Python, and the most you can do is to put "expert on Python" on your resume when you apply for grad school. If you do well in a hard math...

    Re: UChicago MACSS vs. LSE EME, advice needed

    Keep in mind that you do not have to pay for an entire Masters degree to take PhD Econ Courses at UChicago (or most other schools). It's much more cost and time effective to just enroll as a GSAL...

    Re: UChicago MACSS vs. LSE EME, advice needed

    I'd go to LSE. The UChicago MA seems less relevant, and I think LSE has a much better infrastructure in PhD placements. Also, you can go pretty much anywhere for a 1 year full time RA gig. Think...

    Re: Michigan v. UCSD

    If there is any department on an upward trajectory, it is Michigan and not UCSD. Michigan consistently has better funding offers (on average) than UCSD. Michigan also been hiring like a top 10...
  14. Re: Brown vs. Michigan vs. BU - what would you choose?

    I'd also go to Michigan not only for PF and Labor, but also if I want to do fields like macro, international, finance, IO. There are very good professors in almost every field except possibly...
  15. Re: Brown vs. Michigan vs. BU - what would you choose?

    You should go to Brown if you're 98%+ sure you're going to do development. Otherwise, Michigan is a full service department where you can do basically anything, and their placement is better.
