    I had this exact problem last year and I don't remember precisely how I resolved it (whether I contacted general admissions versus the department) but I resolved it without much difficulty. My...

    I haven't done a thorough, detailed poll, but I have not yet met anyone in my entering class at MIT who does not seem to have a very, very good grasp of Analysis concepts. The foreigners may not have...

    I think economic consulting would, if anything, be a slight disadvantage. The Fed might help a little. Letters, definitely, but you secure good letters not just by knowing famous people; you have to...

    I'm presuming you're asking about the Public...

    I'm presuming you're asking about the Public Policy PhD program (not PEG, which is very difficult and on par with Harvard Econ). I applied last year and was accepted, know several people who've been...
  5. I don't have a comprehensive list since your...

    I don't have a comprehensive list since your interests are a little different than mine, but I would look at Brown and JHU (though both are harder to get into than their rank and so are not great...

    With Public Policy, I know they definitely care about a blend of grades, research, and life experience. It's much more about the whole package than with economics. KSG pub pol requires, and...

    Two others are Harvard Kennedy School Public Policy, as well as the PEG program which is joint with the Harvard Economics department (and similarly hard to get into). You can only apply to 2 Harvard...
  8. I don't think you have no shot, but Stanford...

    I don't think you have no shot, but Stanford Political Econ and Harvard's Pub Pol and Political Econ are just insanely competitive. I applied to both Harvard Pub Pol and Stanford Political Econ and...
  9. If you don't believe me, I would encourage you to...

    If you don't believe me, I would encourage you to look up the details on various schools' websites. In most cases it is explicit on the application form itself. I opened up my applications from last...

    I'm pretty sure that most grad schools require you to mention all coursework (i.e. they explicitly state you must in their regulations). Even if it is not explicitly stated, I feel pretty confident...
  11. Also I should add that I really would leave them...

    Also I should add that I really would leave them all on your list and expand down the rankings if you can afford it, because on some level it's all just a numbers game. If you can't leave them all,...
  12. I think you're probably aiming too high, mainly...

    I think you're probably aiming too high, mainly due to your LSE grades. With a merit you couldn't continue on to the LSE PhD program itself, I don't believe, so unfortunately that is probably the...

    The full quote is glorious: "He must be mathematician, historian, statesman, philosopher—in some degree. He must understand symbols and speak in words. He must contemplate the particular in terms of...

    Unlikely if you have good grades in future courses. I had a B in Intro Micro (but an A in a much harder intermediate micro course).

    One of the main benefits of such jobs is that they can give you a route to a good LOR. So if your supervisors at MDRC didn't earn PhDs, then it is not ideal for this purpose. In fact I'd say you...
