    How advanced is the probability class? Most first-year graduate econometrics classes review the relevant mathematical statistics, and it isn't that hard. If that's a measure-theoretic probability...

    For us, macro sort of depends on who's teaching. The last few years Sargent taught the first half so we did search models (McCall, Neal,...), equilibrium with complete markets, Kalman filter and...
