  1. Re: What does it mean when a program asks me for a Skype meeting before the offer let

    Interviews are rare in econ, but are a standard part of the process in business PhD admissions. It is usually the final step before the committee makes their final decision and getting an interview...
  2. Re: Profile Evalutation - PhD in Business (Finance)

    Sorry to be blunt, but I don't think you have any clue about the competitiveness of finance PhD admissions or the difficulty of coursework in a finance PhD program and you are aiming far too high.

    Sticky: Re: 2020 Sweat Thread

    They want to know if you are still seriously considering them, which may affect your rank within the waitlist. Knowing where else you got into and/or are waitlisted at can give them an idea of how...

    Re: Profile eval for 40 year old :)

    I agree with Braz, even for a B-School PhD program, you will still need to brush up on your math no matter what. If your math background is fairly strong - at least Calc II, preferably Calc III, and...

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    I am going to add something that I have not seen anyone mention yet.

    Business PhD programs, depending on rank and field typically matriculate only 2-6 students per year in any given field (and...
  6. Re: Looking for a Grad level History of Economic Thought Textbook

    The closest thing to what you want is probably "A History of Macroeconomics from Keynes to Lucas and Beyond" by Michel De Vroey, though as was mentioned, any course would likely use various papers...
  7. Re: Accounting/Finance PhD Profile Evaluation

    I understand why you prefer finance/accounting over OR.

    Having a masters degree in OR from a school of that tier is pretty good even though they do tend to be industry focused. I would suggest...
  8. Re: Accounting/Finance PhD Profile Evaluation

    It is hard to get a good feel for your application.

    Since you have a US MS in OR, your undergrad university matters less than it often does for foreign students. However, you don't say anything...

    Re: Finance PhD Profile Evaluation

    In your case not having real analysis will not prevent you from getting into top schools, though having it helps. While the some of the topics covered in a typical baby rudin level real analysis...
  10. Re: Econ PhD from pure math background? / Refining goals

    Taking the math subject test is a waste of time since it is directed towards students going for PhD's in Pure Math/Math Theory. You have a BA in math from a top tier school with almost straight A's...

    Re: Flyouts to visit places for free?

    This is something that all too many PhD applicants and PhD students underestimate. I know someone who is currently effectively blacklisted at a very good journal (can't give away any more details...
  12. Re: Econ PhD from pure math background? / Refining goals

    There are some finance PhD programs that will seriously consider someone with pure math background, though without finance or econ LOR's you will be at a disadvantage.

    Also, there are some other...
  13. Re: No Linear Algebra and Calc II and III, NEED TO APPLY FOR PHD ECONOMICS, WHAT DO I

    This is also a good idea. And compare those profiles to those who only got into top 30's or top 50's and those who only got into below top 50 programs.
  14. Re: No Linear Algebra and Calc II and III, NEED TO APPLY FOR PHD ECONOMICS, WHAT DO I

    Econ adcoms will not care much about the LSE masters that you have because it is not in (mainstream) economics or in a quantitative field like math or statistics. Now, if you were applying to a PhD...
  15. Re: No Linear Algebra and Calc II and III, NEED TO APPLY FOR PHD ECONOMICS, WHAT DO I

    I feel bad for you, but the simple fact is that even a very low ranked Econ PhD program will not look at a candidate with as weak a math background as you. Calc III and Lin Alg are absolutely...
