working with young professors
Wahasky posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsIs it a downside if the professors you are most interested in working with at a program are young and recently hired? I feel like plus side is they're actively engaged in research, at the edge of the field, and probably interested in working together, which all seem like huge advantages. But, if they have little experience advising and no history placing advisees in good positions is that a big risk?
Canadian MA vs LSE MSc
timeseries posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHello Everyone, I’ve been lucky enough this season to get into great programs. I’ve received an acceptance into all three M.A. Economics programs at top 3 Canadian universities (Queens, UofT, UBC) with 18K in funding. I've also been accepted into LSE MSc Statistics, without any funding. My long term goal is to complete a PhD in Econometrics. I am currently living in Canada, so it would be much easier and affordable for me to continue at a Canadian program. I can still afford LSE with a little debt. My question is whether going to LSE would have significant long term advantages over attending one of the other programs? Are the advantages that LSE offers in terms of a better international reputation worth forgoing a generous scholarship for ?
