  2. Hi All! I am currently in my second year at American University in D.C. I'm graduating in 3 years in may 2022, making me a junior in credits. I am an economics major and math minor with a 3.88 GPA I plan to apply for PhD in economics programs as well as some dual-degree or combined econ/public policy PhD programs. Right now I am planning on applying to top 30-60 for my target schools as well as potentially some reach schools in the top 30. I wrote a brief summary of my statistics below: Math Classes: Calc 1 (A), Calc 2 (A-), Statistics (passed because of COVID grade changes), Linear (A), and Calc 3 (A). I also plan on taking Foundations of Math (Math 403) and Real Analysis, both of which I hope to get an A or A-. Economics Classes: Basic Macro and Micro (A), Intermediate Macro (A-), Intermediate Micro (A), and 3 econ 3xx electives (A). I also will take both econometrics 1 and 2 as well as 2 more upper level econ electives and mathematical economics. I expect that those classes will also be mainly A or A-. Internship Experience: I have interned at the Treasury Department, worked at the Smithsonian, and interned for a consulting company. Research Experience: I have worked as a RA for a year and have co-authored a historical economics paper (and one more on the way) with my economics professor. The papers will be presented at various conferences in Spring/Summer 2021. I also am working as a RA in the mathematics department on a federally funded project that identifies malware in data documents using comp sci theory. I hope to do some sort of research position next summer as well. I also have significant diversity in my background although I don't know how much that would help. I would appreciate any advice on my chances for grad school or classes to take!
  3. Hey all, this is my first reddit post so bear with me. I am currently in my my last year of my undergrad and I plan on doing a thesis based MAcc degree which I will complete in the summer. I am wanting to get a Ph.D in accounting and was wondering how much a lower undergraduate GPA might hold me back from that. My undergrad GPA is gonna be around a 3.3 and my masters GPA will be a little bit higher. I know that the GMAT is a large part of the application process, and I'm confident I can score 700 on that. I also completed 3 internships up to now, one in a small cpa firm and the other 2 in investment banking, I do not know if I need more work experience in order to get accepted into a program? So, based on what I wrote above, would it be possible to get into a decent PhD program after I complete my MAcc? I don't care much about getting into any really good schools, but i dont want to go anywhere where i wont learn the skills I need to be a good researcher. Finally, does anyone have any tips for the admissions process? I plan on applying to a really wide range of schools, but does anyone know which ones in particular i would have an expecially good chance at?
  4. TLDR:Got my GRE score 2 days ago. 165V+ 170Q, 4.5 AW. Should I retake to be more competitive in top 10? wordy version: international student but undergrad at US. My advisor who served as our school’s adcom chair last year and another professor said 4.5 is ok. But just asked a third professor, very well-known, she seemed a bit concerned. She wrote “since you will be applying with a US undergrad, you might be unlucky and have your folder compared with others that are also from the US and have much better writing. So, for the very top places, it might make a difference” I can do it a second time, but not sure if I can do better in AW, or even the other 2 for a second time. thanks for your help! I love this forum!
  5. Hey guys, I'm thinking about what range of PhD/Masters/RA Positions to apply to and would love any advice/opinions I can get on the matter. School: Almost unknown in the social sciences, Top 150 in US News Rankings Econ classes: Principles of Micro/Macro, Intermediate Micro/Macro, Econometrics, Game Theory, Health Care, Behavioral, Empirical Research (All As) Math classes: Calculus I-III (A), Probability (A), Mathematical Statistics (A), Mathematical Modeling (A), Intro to Differential Equations (A), Linear Algebra (A), Complex Analysis ©, Advanced Calculus I-II (A), Graduate Real Analysis I-II (A), Research in Mathematics (A), Mathematics Seminar (A) Research experience: an empirical project using Stata for 2 years with one professor and a theoretical project in I/O with another, both of whom will write rec letters Research Interests: I/O, Development I haven't taken the GRE yet, but I'll be studying for it throughout the summer and anticipate on doing really well in it. Thanks!
  6. Hi all, I am considering between these 3 schools, hope you can help me with. 1/ Rutgers: MS in Statistics and Biostatistics. A great school and program with good placements and the thesis option. MS students can transfer into PhD 2/ Case Western Reserve: MS in Biostatistics. Very well ranked university, particularly in Ohio. Can't find any historical placements. MS students can transfer into PhD 3/ South Carolina: MS in Statistics (cannot compare to the above 2 in every aspect, the reason I am considering this school because I got the teaching assistantship) My most concern is finding the job in US after graduation, regardless of the field. The ability to transfer to PhD is also important, in case the plan of finding the job does not work out and I can save 2 years of course work. I am extremely lucky that the tuition is not a problem. My favorite school right now is Rutgers but I really appreciate any advice, especially from the above programs' alumni. Is there anyone who transferred directly from MS in Stat/Biostat at Rutgers/CWRU to their PhD? Thank you very much in advance.
  7. Hi. I'd like to compare these two choices. While Minnesota has a much higher rank and a better placement record than Penn State, its forte is macro whereas I have a strict preference for microeconomic theory which is what the PSU department is strong in. Moreover, Penn State is a rising department so who knows what the placements will be like by the time I graduate. Another potential problem with PSU is the high attrition rate, they have a reputation for kicking out a non-trivial fraction of the entering class by the end of first year. I am indifferent location-wise ad funding is similar. Any insights would be very helpful!
  8. Hi there, I've done a lot of reading on this forum so far and was hoping to find some help in evaluating my profile for grad school admissions. I've been out of my undergrad for a little over 4 years now, working in public accounting in Canada, and am looking to go back to do an MA in Economics or a Masters of Financial Economics. I was thinking of applying to the MFE program at U of T and Western in Canada, the Masters of Finance and Economics at LSE, the MSc of Managerial and Financial Economics at HEC and probably the MA of Economics at U of T and Queens. My profile is as follows: Undergrad: Undergrad in business from a top Canadian business school Majors: Business, but majored in economics and computer science for 2 years before transferring into business Undergrad GPA: 3.68 for four years, 3.88 in final year GRE: Just wrote, unofficial score was 166Q, 164V. I think I might be able to get a 170Q if I re-write, but just wrote yesterday so have to wait a month and know that will hold up applications for rolling admissions programs. Is it worth re-writing knowing that it will mean that it will hold up my application for rolling admissions programs (LSE in particular)?Courses (just picked the quant related ones): Calc I and II, full year of intermediate microeconomics, intermediate macroeconomics, econometrics, and finance. Also took a half year of advanced microeconomics last summary as mentioned below. Letters of Recommendation: Struggling a bit here. I can get strong professional letters of recommendation, but academic ones are more challenging since I've been out of school for over 4 years. I took an advanced microeconomic theory course last summer as a refresher, and got a 93, but it was taught by a PhD student - is it worth requesting a letter from him or is better to ask more senior professors I had 6+ years ago who likely barely remember me? Any advice is really appreciated - particularly around re-writing the GRE, reference letters, applying as a 'mature' student who's been out of school for a few years, and whether it's wishful thinking to get into these programs with my stats. Thanks!
  9. Edit: PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: Double Major in Mathematics and Economics, Minor in Statistics Undergrad GPA: 3.01 Type of Grad: None Grad GPA: NA GRE: Will be taking soon, am confident in high scores due to high scores on previous standardized tests Math Courses: Calculus I & II in high school, Calc III (A), Discrete Math (A), Matrices (B), Differential Equations (B), Game Theory (A), Real Analysis (B-), Linear Algebra (B-), Linear Programs (A-), Intro to Mathematical Statistics (B), Stochastic Modeling (A), Combinatorics (F, C), Intro To Probability Theory (D, B) Econ Courses (Undergrad): Macro Analysis in high school, Micro Analysis (A), Intermediate Micro Analysis (B+), Intermediate Macro Analysis (A-), Money and Banking (B+), Statistical Foundation of Econometrics (A), Intro to Econometrics (B-), Industrial Organizations (A-), Mathematical Economics (B-), Sports Economics (A), International Economics (B+), Strategy (B) Other Courses: Chem (B) Philosophy (B), Intro to C++ ©, Spanish (A-) Letters of Recommendation: Can get at least one outstanding one from mathematics professor who has published books recently, can get two-four good ones in either math or econ, all from Penn State professors Research Experience: None Teaching Experience: Tutored math and economics for Penn State, taught Calculus to high school students at a Penn State camp, Grading Assistant for a professor of Mathematics Research Interests: Econometrics, really any that I am able to get into at this point SOP: none as of yet Concerns: Very low grades. Need to find a school to look past that. Would be willing to go for a Masters first, but have the same problem of not being sure where to apply, or who would accept me Applying to: Pitt, USF, not sure where I have a chance ORIGINAL POST BELOW Hello, I didn't take my undergraduate work nearly as seriously as I should have, and ended up with a low GPA. I graduated in May, and have been working as a Business Analyst since, but have realized that I would really like to go back to school for a PhD in Economics. Here is what I have: 3.01 Overall GPA BS in Mathematics from Penn State BS in Economics from Penn State Minor in Statistics from Penn State Will be taking the GRE soon, but am confident in a high score as I scored 217 and 2190 on PSAT and SAT respectively Can obtain 2 strong letters of rec, 1 decent I know that trying to get in with a GPA this low is tough, but I was hoping that it would be somewhat offset by my extensive math coursework. Also, I've heard that having a year of real life work experience is beneficial. So, do I stand a chance of getting into any PhD programs (they don't have to be top programs, but not online programs either)? If so, any ideas on what/where I should be looking at? Thanks in advance
  10. Hi everyone :) I'm an undergraduate econ major student who will be applying for PhD in economics soon. I'm quite math/stat oriented, so I guess in grad school the direction I'll be focused on would econometrics. I've also done a research in nonparametric statistics with a professor, and expecting a working paper to come out soon. However I'm not quite sure what schools I should be applying for, since econometrics seems to be a quite distinct division from other branches in economics. Would it be reliable if I just look at the rankings for economics programs? Is there a ranking out there specifically for econometrics? I also heard that most statistics done in econometrics is more focused on parametrics and models, but the topic I am interested in is non-parametrics (as can be seen from the research I did in undergraduare). So I'm curious what are some schools with strong nonparametric econometrics in particular? Any ideas would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
