  1. Re: No Linear Algebra and Calc II and III, NEED TO APPLY FOR PHD ECONOMICS, WHAT DO I

    You're thinking of the admission's process backwards...lots of people do. There is no set of check boxes that guarantee admission. Admission committees are looking for positive signals. Perfect...
  2. Re: No Linear Algebra and Calc II and III, NEED TO APPLY FOR PHD ECONOMICS, WHAT DO I

    Meeting the qualifications to be considered at a program is very different from having a realistic chance of being admitted. Harvard gets 600+ applications a year and admits 40~45.

    But you don't...

    Re: Low-GPA Profile Evaluation

    I suspect for schools in the 20-40 range, an RA position is less important. Getting a good A in your current math courses could also help. (I don't know enough about ag econ programs to comment.)
  4. Re: International student undergraduate GPA evaluation

    Programs often have more experience than you might think in evaluating grades, but that will vary from program to program. So there isn't a clear answer.

    One thing that matters is how many...
  5. Re: International student undergraduate GPA evaluation

    Yes, they will pay some attention to your undergraduate grades. Was your Master's from an American program, or an otherwise well-known program?

    Re: Low-GPA Profile Evaluation

    First thing, congrats on the A. That does matter.

    If your letter writers tell you a top 30 is possible, that could mean anywhere in the top 30. But it's often code for the top 20 is pretty...

    Re: Low-GPA Profile Evaluation

    Top 10 looks very unlikely, even 30-40 isn't obvious. But there's lots of information we don't have. Did you get an A in graduate micro? That might make a difference. Mostly, go ask your letter...

    Re: PhD in economics with Math major

    Most Latin American students do get a master's first. One reason is to find out if you like economics!

    However, you can almost certainly get into an econ PhD program with your current credentials....
  9. Re: Profile Evaluation: PhD Econ/Finance with weaker grades but high research potenti

    Following on to tutonic's comments, the letter from your pre-doc will be very important. And it is unlikely that much can be said only a few months into the pre-doc. Consider whether you should put...

    Re: College Doesn't Offer "Real Analysis"

    Ask the math department which course is best for learning to do proofs.
  12. Re: Can this be right? University Rhode Island PHD does not require a math for econom

    Nothing wrong with the way you posted it, I just missed it.

    In any event, many PhD programs do not have a math for economists course...because they expect you will have the needed math before...

    Re: Profile Evaluation for PhD in Economics

    You have a pretty good shot. It will help if your school has sent students to top programs in the past and it will help more if the people writing your letters of recommendation have done so.

    Re: Early Profile Review & Math Course Advice

    jjrouseau gives good advice here, but let me add one more piece.

    Undergraduate economics is far removed from graduate training and from doing academic research. A first step is to take more...
