    Re: Profile Evaluation - Fall 2020

    Extremely competitive. You will need good performance in a good master's (Duke, NYU, programs in Europe, and so on) to have a good shot.

    Re: Profile Evaluation - Fall 2020

    The finance/business work experience and online master's won't help you at all for econ admissions. In fact, they work against you because it's not clear why you would now want to do a PhD in Econ. ...
  3. Re: Georgetown vs Wisconsin vs Maryland vs UCLA

    Your specific research interests will likely change but I'd be less certain your broad career goals will change. Therefore, I'd recommend UMD or Georgetown.

    Sticky: Re: 2019 Admission Sweat Thread

    One unspoken rule around the forum is that these kind of posts are not welcome. Let people do their thing in their own time and have some patience.

    If I see it becoming common, I'll start...

    Re: First Year Econ Phd & Research

    Yes, "students who specialize in micro theory tend to do well on coursework and they also tend to not get good jobs." I agree wholeheartedly with this statement. It is much clearer than " [the]...
  6. Re: Choosing between programs (UAB/BGSE/PennState/SSE)

    I find the cost of living in the five states I've lived in the US and my home country (Ireland) to be very comparable.

    Moreover, to the extent that something is "free" in Europe, it is being paid...

    Re: First Year Econ Phd & Research

    I notice that you apologized that some people were offended, rather than actually apologizing for belittling the work of fellow economists.

    You then double down and say that "the reason why...

    Re: First Year Econ Phd & Research

    I don't find this post helpful.

    First, what is your definition of talented theorists? Who gets to decide who is talented? Is there some market inefficiency that could be corrected or are...

    Keep in mind that salaries in the US are generally 2x those in Europe.

    Re: Range of funding in top 15 programs

    PSU pays pretty well, but my understanding is that you'll have a job (mist likely a Teaching Assistant for 10-20 hours per week) in the first year.

    Moreover, you can think of the 30k as a...

    Re: Range of funding in top 15 programs

    I echo what Zubrus said.

    Moreover, this shouldn't be something you worry about until the situation presents itself (which is unlikely). Even then, the value of negotiation is questionable. You...

    Sticky: Re: 2019 Admission Sweat Thread

    Note that the days of the week are meaningless to many faculty at top schools. Something like deciding on admissions is exactly the kind of work that is well-suited to a Sunday night or Saturday...

    Re: What weighs on the balance?

    As I guessed, based on the info about past students, if you apply for schools ranked outside the top 15 you'll do just fine.

    Re: PhD Econ vs PhD Accounting

    If you are interested in topics at the intersection of the two disciplines, Accounting is the better choice (resources, placement, and salary). On the other hand, you have to be sure you're happy to...

    Re: What weighs on the balance?

    It seems to me that your outcomes will depend largely on the past history of students from your school. You should ask your LOR writers about how they think you compare to students they have sent to...
