Anyone interested in getting 3 new GRE books?
greekgoddess posted a topic in GREHello all, I have been planning to take the GRE exam by the end of this year and bought some GRE books on Amazon however, I am forced to sell them at short notice ($15 for all three) because I am leaving the US in three days due to a family emergency and these books are too heavy to fit into my suitcase. Condition: new, as I never got around to actually use them yet. The books are: 1. Manhattan's 5lb Book of GRE Practice Problems, latest edition 2. Official GRE Verbal Reasoning Practice Questions, 2nd edition 3. Official GRE QUANTITITATIVE Reasoning Practice Questions, 2nd edition I am based in Washington DC metro area. Please send me a message if you are interested. This is an urgent sale. Thank you, greekgoddess
twistedmango posted a topic in PhD in BusinessHello folks, I have heard that some schools use peer-comparisons to limit the number of students who pass the 2nd year prelims. I was just wondering for those that get cut, do they reapply to other business schools? If so, would they have to start as a 1st year all over again at the different school or is there a way to "start" as a 2nd year? Would phd credits transfer? Thanks.
Georgetown vs. Columbia for Econ PhD program
dogbones posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHi all, I'm trying to decide if I would prefer Georgetown or Columbia should I be accepted to both (what a thought!). Georgetown has easier admissions requirements with the GRE Quantitative just needing to be at least in the 80th percentile, and I'm sure Columbia is more like 90th to 95th percentile. One thing that left me wondering about Columbia is that they have you write a 2nd year paper, and I've heard of 3rd year papers, but I thought the 1st and 2nd years were used mainly for coursework and fulfilling TA or RA duties? Does seem to be a bit of a rush. I don't know too much about either program, but Georgetown says on their website that you can take 2 semesters of leave of absence, and maybe this a reflection of the pace of the program?
