  1. Hey guys! I know that Cornell is very good in labor econ. However, I've heard that if you want to do other kind of research (i.e., non-labor) it's pretty average and that you should prioritize other less prestigious departments. Is this true? Is there a non-labor PhD student on this forum that is willing to share his opinion about his experience? Thanks.
  2. Hi everyone. I have recently got full funded offers from these programs. My research interests mainly lies in political economy, development, economic growth. Could you please give me some suggestions on whcih programs should I choose. Chicago_Harris. pros: I have already passed the PhD Q exam at Harris during my master study. So I could graduate in 4 years. Many first-tier faculties (Robinson, Blattman, Sonin, Durlauf, Ito, ......) that conduct excellent researches. And also Harris fits my research interests well. cons: not strong performance in econ job market (may be better in the future because of their great hiring)? Policy PhD may be discriminated in the econ market? Not that rigorous training in econ (compare with other 2 programs). Cornell applied economics and management. Pros: Taking most of their courses with econ PhD, rigorous training. Strong placement records (even better than their econ department) and have many chances to coauthor with their professors. Cons: Few of the faculty members have top 5 publication records. Nobody does the political economy in their department. Madison economics PhD Pros: Excellent training and professors. Highly ranked in econ PhD programs. Cons: Not so many professors that fit my research interests (only want to work with 2 professors). Not strong placement records. Too many cohorts, high competition in terms of resources. And maybe high attrition rate in their q exams (rumor?) I appreciate any suggestions and comments! Thank you.
  3. Hi everyone, I have recently got three offers from the above universities, all with full funding. Do you have any suggestions on what offer should I choose? My research interest mainly lies in political economy, development, environmental economics and economic growth. Chicago. pros: I was a graduate student at Harris, and can waive the first year courses and passed their q, therefore I could save one year time. Faculty matches my research interests and are first-tier scholars. cons: less rigorous training in economics, not strong placement records in economics (may probably better in the future, since they have many great hiring.) Cornell. Pros: take most of the courses with their econ students, good training. Tight relationship between faculties and graduate students (they coauthor frequently). good placement records, may be even better than their econ department. cons: Faculty members are not that good compared with Chicago Harris (less top 5 publications). None of them do political economy. Madison. Pros: High ranked program, first-tier professors, rigorous training. Cons: areas may not be perfectly matched. Only want to work with 2 professors. High attrition rate in q exam (rumor?) And not strong placement records. I am quite appreciate for your suggestions and comments.
  4. First off, apologies for creating a new thread. I know I should probably post it in the Sweat Thread but I'm afraid that my message might just get lost in the stream of posts. It is really important for me, hence posting as a separate thread. Cornell is my dream university and what's quite strange is that I haven't heard back from them yet (Ph.D. economics). I think it's unusual as they have already sent batches of acceptances and rejections a long time ago. At this stage, I'm assuming I'm wait-listed and I'm trying to weigh my chances. I'd like to ask you whether any of you is in the same situation as myself. Also, is there anybody out there who is planning to reject their offer from Cornell in the near future? Thank you very much guys and once again, apologies for posting here.
  5. Hello, I have currently been accepted to the above programs with full funding. Given the financial support (stipend + health insurance + full tuition waiver) is pretty much the same between the three universities, where should I go? I am interested in development econ and labor econ. Thank you.
  6. Anyone hear from Cornell, PSU, and UC Irvine Accounting? No news so far, just wondering if they have sent out interviews. Thanks!
  7. I have got admits from Cornell M.eng ECE 1 year program and MS ECE NCSU. Please help me decide which one is better on the basis of Job prospects.
  8. Hi guys, I've been in this website a lot, but this is my first post. Right now, I'm very interested in doing a PhD in Algorithmic Game Theory, especially which can be applied to Economics problems. I did several research and found an interesting fundamental book for this field, Algorithmic Game Theory, written by 4 professors : 3 is in the US. These are described as follows. - Tim Roughgarden : Stanford University - Eva Tardos : Cornell University - Vijay Vazirani : Georgia Institute of Technology Now my problem is since I wanted to apply them in economics problem, I should find a university where it has great faculty both in CS and Economics. I have considered 3 programs from these universities - Computational and Mathematical Engineering : Stanford University (I have looked in a CS curriculum and it's kinda strict to the CS courses, so I'm looking in this one instead. Also, it has great economics faculties) - Computer Science : Cornell University (This one is not as strict as one in Stanford) - Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization : Georgia Institute of Technology (I found this one the most interesting, both in subjects and professor, but it's Economics was not well considered by outsiders) I would like to ask for opinions from you guys about which one I should considered the most in order to achieve my goal. My goal resides in both academia and industry, but more in academia. I plan to be both a teacher and a consultant for government sectors. Any feedback and comment will be very grateful!!! Best Regards, Donn
  9. Hello everybody, I used this forum a lot when studying for my GRE, which a took a couple weeks ago, but I never posted anything until now. I just checked my GRE results online and I want to know if I have a change at getting admitted to the programs I want with my "numbers" in the GRE, TOEFL, and GPA. I am from the Dominican Republic, I majored in Systems Engineering (akin maybe to Computer Science) in the Santo Domingo Institute of Technology. It doesn't sound very fancy but it is the best university here in my country. I graduated with a 3.9 GPA, second in my graduating class and first among my same major. I have interest in pursuing a career in research, specifically I'm looking to apply to the PhD degree program in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Cornell University and the PhD program in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. My GRE scores are 610V (%88) , 720Q (%75) , 4.5AWA (%67). I wished I had done better but that is what I got. I also have a 112 in the TOEFL ibt. Can somebody tell me if I have a chance with this qualifications? I can work in getting good recommendations and writing a good letter of motivation but I want to know if this "stats" are good enough to be considered. Thank you to anyone that may answer. If you want to ask me a question, please, ask away.
  10. General Reputation: UCLA ~ Cornell > Wisconsin Econometrics: Wisconsin >> UCLA > Cornell Game Theory: UCLA ~ Wisconsin > Cornell Placement: UCLA > Wisconsin ~ Cornell Location: UCLA > Wisconsin ~ Cornell Climate: UCLA > Wisconsin ~ Cornell My feeling is that UCLA and Cornell have bigger names but weaker faculties. Suggestions???
