Not interested in getting ph.d I think I'll apply to LSE econ, LSE int development, UW-Madison econ for sure. I'm still pending my decision on USC applied econ, Uni of Sussex dev studies, Tuft for econ... Do you think programs at Cambridge or Oxford would be a far reach for me? Open to any suggestion or advice on my school choice! Thanks
Hi all. Need some advice on where I might be the best fit for a masters program to prepare for a PhD. I am American-Canadian and have spent a year out of undergrad on a prestigious area studies work fellowship abroad but I'm realizing that I want to take a different direction. I love economics, especially as it relates to development and international macroeconomics, and would like to use my brain a helluva lot more and have autonomy instead of going into development project management as my current path would be headed. Problem is in undergrad I had exactly the opposite intentions: I focused mostly on leadership and work experience. So I'll need to work hard to compensate for avg grades and develop strong math and research skills to demonstrate my seriousness and preparation. Please take a look at my schools and let me know if they're a good match for my interests/needs and if I'm competitive.
