    Re: Second PhD???

    That's a very helpful response.

    Since you are only in your first year, you should consider moving to another program rather than doing two PhDs. The argument that your current department does not...
  2. Re: Statement of Purpose Question - Mention Faculty Names?

    Re: Second PhD???

    How far along are you in your PhD program? Why do you think that you can't get a position at a research school from where you are? And why do you think that a credential in another field would help?...

    Re: Econ PhD Profile Evaluation: Fall 2021

    Do a serious pre-doc and earn a strong recommendation. That is the most likely way to get into a top 5, starting where you are currently.

    Re: Econ PhD Profile Evaluation: Fall 2021

    No one can really evaluate your record because we don't know what your letter writers are going to say.

    But my guess is that the odds are not good at the first six nor at Berkeley.

    The GRE score is perfectly fine.

    Re: A dissertation idea

    This is an interesting question, but probably a terrible dissertation idea. A good dissertation idea requires an interesting question that one can figure out how to answer. A clearly correct answer...
  9. Re: PhD Profile Evaluation - Fall 2021 (retake GRE?)

    167 is 89th percentile and 168 is 92nd percentile. So you're right.

    Re: Transfer reaches?

    That's a good start. But add in top liberal arts colleges and many flagship state universities.

    Don't misunderstand, you can get into a PhD program from any undergraduate program. But coming from...

    Re: Transfer reaches?

    Going to a school that feds into PhD programs does matter. That would be true of both Berkeley and Northwestern. The advantage of a private school is that you will have a better opportunity to get to...

    Re: Transfer reaches?

    Berkeley is an excellent place to go, but very large. Lot's of private places will do as well or better than Berkeley, but they tend to be very expensive. (Although some will cover you if you are low...
