Profile Evaluation for MA programs
MatthewSinger1 posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsI'm curious about how I stand. Looking to get into either U of T (doctoral, preferably) for MA or LSE (MSc in Econ or EME) Type of Undergrad: Top 5 Canadian school, Business (Finance) and Mathematics dual degree Undergrad GPA: 3.9/4.0 GRE: Q: 170, V: 164, W: 4.5 Math Courses: Calc I, II (AP, no mark); Calc III (A+); Linear Algebra (A+); Intro to Computer Science (A+); Universally standardized intro stats course (A+); Probability Theory (with Calc III prerequisite) (A-); Game Theory (A+); Real Analysis (A-); Differential Equations (A+); Computational Data Science (A); Probability Theory II (with Real Analysis prerequisite) (A); Time Series Analysis (A) Econ Courses: Intro, Intermediate, Advanced Micro and Macro (A+ in all six); Mathematical Economics (A+); Econometrics I (A+); Applied Econometrics (A) Finance Courses: Finance I, Finance II, Corporate Finance, International Finance, Portfolio Theory, Financial Derivatives (all A+) Letters of Recommendation: One economics professor, one quantitative finance professor. Research Experience: Very little academic research experience; all of my research experience is professional. Research Interests: Macroeconomics, developmental economics Work experience: Worked every summer at various firms, most recently at a prestigious investment bank. I guess this is sort of relevant and it would certainly be in my SOP; I want to do a Master's degree, more than anything else, because I love economics. I can continue at the firm I last worked, and it would be a solid end in itself - from what I've seen, many people who finish MAs in economics end up in the very job I would end up in. But for some naive misguided reason I feel the need to complete graduate studies in economics. Maybe part of me feels I can make a difference in the world with it. I don't know.
