Any news on Chicago Booth - Economics? When will they be releasing results. There is just one posting from Feb 25th indicating admission. Could this be fake? Does anyone know how many people the program typically admits?Also any info on the program from current students or those who know the program well is welcome. Thanks a lot!
Hi, I'm really interested in getting into the joint program in Financial Economics at the University of Chicago, I'm wondering if it's better, for any reason, to apply through one department or the other in order to maximize the probability of being accepted and getting funded. Are the admission committee in each department looking at different things? Is it background dependent? Or once I state that I want to apply to the joint program it won't matter anymore? Should I state that I want to apply to the joint program? Also, does the master conferred is dependent on the department you apply? Chicago Econ department is well known for sending unfunded offers, is this true as well for Booth? I've a bachelor's degree in finance and a bachelor's degree in economics both from a university outside U.S.A. that usually places students in the top 20, more in economics than in finance, but it happens as well, and I'm going to finish an economics master that is specially rigorous in economic theory. Thanks in advance
Hi All, Thanks in advance for your thoughtful comments. My cycle is nearly complete, and it will likely come down to Stern or Booth (with very similar funding) I love both programs, and have listed out a few pros Stern Pro: 1. Xavier Gabaix - this guy is just too cool 2. Access to the Courant Institute 3. Recent strong placements - even slightly better than Booth from what I can see (what do others think?) 4. NYC! Booth Pro: 1. Too many legendary professors to even list out 2. History of strong placement 3. The rigor of the program (I view this as a great thing) 4. Prestige, legacy, and reputation of the Econ department, and Booth itself. 5. Lower cost of living For those that are familiar with one or both of these programs, what are your thoughts? Have I missed some very important considerations? Thank you once again
