  1. Re: Math vs. Econ professor for recommendation

    Startz and Prof provide good points. I am not making a general point here or disagreeing with them at all.

    However, I will note that in a panel discussion on Economics PhD admissions comprised of...
  2. Re: Profile evaluation-Thanks in advance!

    I'd highly suggest trying to do a stint as an RA at your university and/or an independent thesis if that's not too late. It is certainly more difficult to get a predoctoral RA position without some...

    Re: Mentioning Math papers in Econ SOP?

    1. It is very unclear to my why you know you will be writing *GRADUATE LEVEL* topology papers, given that you haven't taken any formal proof-based classes yet. Right now, what is studied and...
  4. Re: RAships, internships, and prospects in PhD

    Most times when you clean data, there is time for analysis, critique, and suggestions. You produce a certain set of results. Is that what you expected? You know the data better than your economist in...
  5. Re: Seeking Coursework Advice | Early Undergrad

    I would highly, highly recommend you do some studying in a Calculus-based probability text this summer on your own before you take that class. I am talking about something like the first part of...

    Re: 2021 profile evaluation

    I don't think you'd be competitive for T30 yet; I'd say that you would probably get into T50-60 programs. Especially if your goal is to go into academia, it would be wise to position yourself for a...
  11. Re: 2021 Fall Econ/Fin PhD Profile Evaluation
