Hey everyone, hope you all are good and not sweating too much. Can anybody let me know how the 'early admissions' process works in Europe, specially Germany and Austria? If I apply early, would I have to accept early as well? because nothing is mentioned on the website about that. Only thing they have said explicitly is that candidates who are rejected in the early round will be considered for admission later. I am also applying to the US and it sounds risky if I have to give up my position here, in case I am selected. Thanks for your help.
I'm an undergraduate student at Michigan State University and in a few years I want to apply for a PhD in either Applied/Computational Mathematics or Economics. I've been lurking on this forum for some time now, and see a lot of importance in choosing the right coursework, so I'm looking for suggestions on my coursework outline and for things that I may be unintentionally neglecting that are important, etc. My profile (GPA, research, etc.) is included in another post from this account. 1st year (19 - 20) Partial Differential Equations (MTH 442), Discrete Mathematics I (MTH 481), C++ Programming (CSE 232), Intro Econometrics (EC 420), Behavioral Econ (EC 404), Honors Micro (EC 251H), Discrete Structures for CS (CSE 260), Honors Linalg (MTH 317H), and Intro Engineering (EGR 100). 2nd year (20 - 21) FS20: Parallel Computing (CMSE 822), Stats & Prob I (STT 861), Econometrics IA (EC 820a), and Honors Abstract Algebra I (MTH 418H) SS21: Numerical Linalg (CMSE 823), Stats & Prob II (STT 862), Econometrics IB (EC 820b), and Honors Abstract Algebra II (MTH 419H) 3rd year (21 - 22) FS21: Microeconomics I (EC 812A), Macroeconomics I (EC 813A), Intro Analysis (327H, may skip this since I have Analysis credit from high school), and Selected Topics in Computational Math (CMSE 890). SS22: Microeconomics II (EC 812B), Macroeconomics II (EC 813B), Real Analysis (429H, may elect to take graduate Complex Analysis (MTH 829) instead), and Selected Topics in Computational Math (CMSE 890). 4th year (22 - 23) FS22: Time Series Econometrics I (EC 822A), Cross Section Econometrics I (EC 821A), Special Topics in Applied Math (MTH 994), and Numerical Analysis I (MTH 850), and Capstone in Mathematics (EC 496W). SS23: International Trade: Theory and Commercial (EC 840), Applied Econometrics (EC 823), Special Topics in Applied Math (MTH 994), Partial Differential Equations (MTH 849), and Capstone in Mathematics (MTH 496W).
Do adcoms normally look at your grades from the fall semester of the year that you are applying? I've seen that the deadline for submitting transcripts to most schools are in early December. I'm taking graduate level courses in micro and econometrics this fall and would like to have the grades as part of my profile. If I upload them in early to mid January, will they be looked at? Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Thought I'd have this on the record, and perhaps get some recommendations about where to hang out around here to for the most learning and contribution ASAP. I'm a recent grad from UCSD's Rady School of Management (Full-time 2011) I'm working in marketing at an exciting start-up. I love my job, but I don't think industry is the right fit for me in the long-term, so I'm looking into PhD programs in a couple years. There are two reasons I'm here early: 1) I don't know what I want to study yet exactly 2) I don't have an ideal academic background, so I want to spend the next few years doing things that will prepare me to get into, contribute to, and succeed in a PhD program. This forum looks like a great place, I'm looking forward to learning and sharing. I'm totally new at the PhD hunt, but I've done the whole B-School thing (& interned with admissions) and will happily share about that. Feel free to link to a related thread. Cheers!
