I'm an undergraduate who will be taking the PhD micro sequence at my school (top-30 US econ) beginning in the fall. My school uses MWG; I've purchased the book, as well as used copies of Sundaram and Simon and Blume for reference. Any advice you would have as I go through these difficult classes? For reference, some relevant classes I've taken include Intermediate Micro, Calculus I-III, Linear Algebra (Proof-based), Mathematical Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics, Analysis I, and Topology (all As).
Hi everyone, I am considering entering an experimental based PhD program but I have received mixed messages on such a decision. Is it really that difficult to be placed from an experimental focused program? Is it considerably more difficult to get an experimental paper published in the top 3 compared to an archival or analytical? Is it just the case that there are fewer researchers doing experimental work and that is why there are less experimental publications? Thanks in advance!
