    Re: Notre Dame PhD vs. LSE MSc Econ

    If you're eyeing/okay with an industry/public sector placement, then I think Notre Dame is fine. Just look through the past placements of students there and see if you're fine with landing something...

    Re: Fall courses before application deadlines

    Yes, you should just email the department admin with your fall grades. It might or might not be taken into consideration, but it definitely can't hurt (since presumably, you'll only consider sending...

    Re: British Columbia MA Program for PhD

    Begin with the USNEWS ranking of schools. Find a cutoff range of schools that you're okay with attending. Let's say hypothetically, it's Top 50. Then work your way up from the bottom (i.e. start...

    Re: Life on the Waitlist

    That's what the 2021 sweat thread (pinned at the top of the PhD Econ subforum page) is for; a place to discuss for everyone who applied this year.

    Re: British Columbia MA Program for PhD

    Yes, ideally, you'll want all 3 letter writers to be from Econ, since they can better assess your ability as a graduate student/researcher.

    Unless you're really set on a particular sub-field, try...

    Re: British Columbia MA Program for PhD

    There is no need to retake the GRE. It's more than enough for a US Top 50 admit. You are correct. You probably didn't gain admission because of your letters. The letters need to speak to more than...
  7. Re: How much to value not having to TA in first year

    There are a couple things to consider.


    Have you taken some of the first year courses before? If so, then having to TA isn't so bad if you really want to attend a particular school. If you...
  8. Re: Business economics or economics for theory interests

    Graduates from Business Econ also have access to Business school jobs which almost always pays better (even lower ranked schools), since business schools are usually the institution's money maker.
  9. Re: Confused between Msc economics at BGSE and Masters in economic analysis at UC3M

    You don't have any Real Analysis/Advanced Calculus in your transcript. Most of the decent programmes implicitly require you to have taken at least up to Real Analysis. A fair number of schools in the...
  10. Re: Business economics or economics for theory interests

    If your interests lie in the intersection of Economics and Finance, always go for the business school option if you can stomach teaching undergraduate Finance courses once you get an academic...
  11. Re: Confused between Msc economics at BGSE and Masters in economic analysis at UC3M

    If you have terrible grades in mathematics, how sure are you that you'd even get into a good PhD programme to begin with? The purpose of doing a rigorous masters is to help cover up bad grades....

    Re: Wisconsin vs UT-Austin

    Look at the placement data over the past 2-3 years of the macro students specifically and see which is better. That'd be a good enough metric.
  13. Re: Should I delay and apply next year or take my T12 offer?

    Another thing worth considering is that if you got shut out of most of the Top 10s coming from a Top 3 RA position (with presumably good grades), it could very well be the case that your letters were...
  14. Re: First cycle and acceptance. When can I expect funding?

    For what it's worth, in the previous 2020 cycle, most of the first-round offers started trickling in from mid to late Feb. I got an informal acceptance letter, in the 3rd week of Feb, that pointed to...
  15. Re: GRE Results for PhD in England - Retake or not?

    Definitely retake the GRE if you're applying to those places. The cost is inconsequential if it helps you not get screened at the earlier stages of the application process. The verbal and AW score...
