    Re: Choosing between LOR Writers

    I've heard a confession of a top school adcom member saying that admissions is rather boring because they just do some filtering by coursework and the rest is up to the letters (from other top...
  6. Re: Profile Evaluation and Advice: Economics Ph.D. Admissions, Fall 2021

    You could consider Environment & Resource Economics specific programs too, if that's something you would see as better fitting than a more traditional economics program?

    Re: Choosing between LOR Writers
