    Re: How to Best Determine Rankings?

    This could be very misleading, as QS ranking is based mostly on alumni and students ranking, not research. It tends to be very biased towards UK institutions who are infamous for gaming the ranking...

    Sticky: Re: 2020 PhD Applicant Sweat Thread

    It depends on schools I think. I saw USC already sent out CB offers, but they have just started to interview for Quant.
  3. Re: Can you rate my chances at getting into these economics masters?

    CEU has very small MA cohort size (~15-20/year), and out of those around 5-7 would be placed to top 20-30 programs in the US. That is actually a very good rate, considering people who wants to stay...

    Re: Fellowship opportunities after admission

    Good luck with the fellowship! How do you know you are being considered? I assume I'm not as I don't see anything on my offer letter.
  5. Re: Can you rate my chances at getting into these economics masters?

    If you are concerned about the lack of Econ background, try looking into the Dutch research masters programs as well (Tilburg, UvA, Rotterdam ERIM), these tend to be more relax in requirement, or a...

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    Yeah that's why I didn't include NYU in the list. Regarding Brazilian's point, if the loss of potential income is not a problem, I think doing a pre-doc can only increase your chance of getting...

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    Most of those have deadlines around March 1 to March 30, so you can still definitely apply. That's the usual deadline for pre-doc. The only one on the list I couldn't find a deadline is WashU, but I...

    Fellowship opportunities after admission

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to work out the budget for the next 5 years, and even though the PhD stipend for business is relatively generous comparing to other fields (my offers were all around 35-38k),...

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    I think you can Google "pre-doctoral fellowship" to find those. NYU is one of the first ones, but there are many others. For example:
    Ross: Bridges Program | Michigan Ross.
    WashU: Pre-Doctoral...

    Still haven't heard anything from Columbia. I think at this point I should call them and ask, as I really want to settle on a school soon. Has anyone heard back from CMU?

    Re: Thoughts on transferring PhD programs?

    Usually that happens due to unforeseen circumstance, like you didn't have the level of support you expected from the school, or your advisor moved. I don't think attending a lower rank program with...

    Anyone wants to start a result thread?
  14. Re: Can you rate my chances at getting into these economics masters?

    I would say get your Quant up to 169-170 would be better. Since you are looking at European programs as well, I would say add Bonn/Mannheim to the list, as well as TSE. These are not hard to get...
