  1. Hi all!!! I just got accepted into Columbia SIPA r2 for the MPA-EPM program - my number 1 choice but with zero funding. I really wanna go here and wonder if I can appeal this decision. Would be grateful. Help!!!!
  2. Hey all, I am currently a junior at a moderate level United States research school. I am studying math with a minor in economics, will have far more classes than required but am avoiding the business school pre-reqs of a double major. I am trying to start formulating a plan for how to boost my application to graduate school or pre grad school programs next fall. Here are my current school stats and relevant experience. GPA: 4.0 (80 credit hours) Relevant Courses: econometrics, intermediate micro/macro (planned), law and economics, natural resource economics. Calc 1-3, Intro diff eq, Linear Algebra, probability, stats (planned), advanced cal. Relevant research experience: Working paper on terrorism that I will be a co-author on. Started undergraduate research on energy regulations in the US. From this and my classes, I already have rec letter writers. Relevant job experience: Currently interning in a think tank out of DC where I am working on terrorism, energy, and carbon tariffs. GRE: I plan to take the GRE next spring and additionally next summer, shooting for a 165 quant or higher. I am wanting to go to graduate school somewhere that has energy and environmental economics as a top option, with preferably some decent connections in the public policy, government sector. Any advice on schools I should be looking at or things to do to boost my application are greatly appreciated.
  3. Hi all, I am looking for profile evaluation it. Any advice/feedback would be highly appreciated. Type of Undergrad: B.A. (Hons.) Economics from the top University in India Undergrad GPA:4 Type of Grad :M.A. Econometrics from a state university in India. Grad GPA: 4 GRE: Q156 ,V 154, AWA 3.5 Math Courses Undergrad: Linear Algebra(A), Calculus(A),Discrete Maths (A) Econ Courses Undergrad: Microeconomics(B+), Macroeconomics(B+), Mathematical Methods in Economics(A), Statistical Methods in Economics(A), Development Theory and Experience(B+), Money and Financial Markets(A), International Economics(A) Econ Courses Grad :Advanced Microeconomics(A), Econometric Theory(A), Time Series Econometrics(A), Applied Econometric Methods(A), Panel Data and Non-parametric Econometrics(A), Econometric Applications(A) PhD level courses :Microeconomics(B-), Statistics(B). Letters of Recommendation: Associate Professor(in Marketing) who I RAed for 2 years(has U.S PhD) Assistant Professor from under grad Associate Professor from Grad Research Experience: Two years RA at a top business school working on projects related to Marketing and Development economics. Teaching Experience: Teaching instructor for Statistics workshop for MBA students(conducted over two days) Research Interests: Econometrics, Development economics Concerns : Lack of publications Poor GRE scores My work experience is under a Marketing prof. Fewer math courses Not so reputed letter writers(2) and not so reputed Grad college Notes: My colleagues(RAs) from the business school, where I RAed got offers from State University of New York, Auburn University, University of Connecticut, Rice University, University of California, George Washington University to study Econ(RAs here usually aim to pursue PhD). Students from my college went on to pursue Grad from U.K and the U.S and none from my Grad college are pursuing PhD. Since GRE is waived off/ optional for most of the programs, I plan to omit it from my applications. Does it harm a lot? Should I retake GRE to make my application more viable? Will applying for Economics program after RAing with Marketing Prof. adversely affect my applications? Depending on my current profile, what sort of schools should I target? What ranking range should I consider? Is my profile even worth applying? Thank you for your time :)
  4. PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: B.A. Mathematics (Honors), B.S. Economics, B.S. Computational Data Sci (Rising Sophomore @ T80 - Honors College) Undergrad GPA: 3.93 Overall, 4.00 Econ Type of Grad: N/A Grad GPA: N/A GRE: N/A Math Courses: Honors Linear Algebra (A-), Discrete Mathematics I (A), Partial Differential Equations (A) Econ Courses (grad-level): N/A Econ Courses (undergrad-level): Behavioral Economics (A), Honors Microeconomics (A) "equivalent of intro micro + intermediate micro", Intro to Econometrics (A) Other Courses: Some programming classes @ Current Uni (all A's)Modern Cryptography, Calc I-III, Differential Eqs, Analysis I @ Dual Enrollment in HS + a lot of AP credits Letters of Recommendation: Currently unknown, but I'll definitely ask the chair of the Statistics department at my university. Others not sure, but will likely ask those who are teaching the graduate courses I'm enroll in later on. Research Experience: RA over Junior Summer of HS (co-authored on article accepted to MAA, to be published sometime in 2020), RA for two projects last semester working under Chair of Statistics department (some presentations at home institution), RA this Summer working under Chair of Statistics department (solely responsible for drafting a manuscript to be submit to a journal in developmental economics, not sure which journal though, chair will decide, might also be national conference presentation possibilities + further pubs). Teaching Experience: N/A as of yet, but applied to a TA position in the Fall for an introductory C++ programming class. Research Interests: Unknown at this point in time, but I plan to apply for Ph.D. in either Applied Mathematics or Economics. SOP: N/A Concerns: I'm considering transferring to the University of Michigan (instate). I don't like the atmosphere at my current university, but would be willing to bear my discontent if it meant that I could continue to build a graduate school application with strong research credentials. Other: I haven't drawn up an extensive undergraduate coursework plan as of yet, but I do know what my Sophomore year will be. My Fall semester includes the following courses: Graduate Parallel Computing, Graduate Econometrics Ia,Graduate Probability & Statistics I, and Honors Abstract Algebra I. My Spring semester is much the same with the following: Graduate Numerical Linear Algebra, Graduate Econometrics Ib, Graduate Probability & Statistics II, and Honors Abstract Algebra II. My current university has offered a lot of flexibility with the courses I can take, which I consider a positive. Regardless of whether I transfer or not I still want to move forward with building a strong application for graduate school, so any input on this front based on the profile above is appreciated. I'm looking for advice on some of the concerns I demonstrate in the last few sections, and I do plan to ask my research mentor/some other students the same questions and get their input too. Thanks for any advice.
  5. Hello, Some schools are making classes taken this semester pass/fail while others are giving the option to choose which classes. How will this look on a transcript to adcoms? If I'm taking honors classes and math courses to try and go onto graduate school, will this hurt me? Thanks
  6. So ultimately I want to take Grad Micro and Statistics while at undergrad and was wondering what math classes I would have to take beforehand in order to be best prepared for those two. Right now I'm planning to take honors sections of Calc III and Linear Algebra but I'm not sure what the rest will entail? Maybe some real analysis? Any abstract algebra? Thanks
  7. Statistics gathered over the past three decades show that the death rate is higher among those who do not have jobs than among those with regular employment. Unemployment, just like heart disease and cancer, is a significant health issue. While many health care advocates promote increased government funding for medical research and public health care, it would be folly to increase government spending if doing so were to affect the nation's economy adversely and ultimately cause a rise in unemployment. A healthy economy means healthy citizens. The argument suggests that the government should not increase government spending as it might affect the nation’s economy, causing a rise in unemployment to the detriment of people’s health. There are many flaws in the argument: some of them being analogous, statistical and causal. This essay will examine the assumptions on which the argument is built, prove that these are wrong and thereby illustrate that the argument’s implications are misleading. The text mentions that the statistics have been gathered over the past three decades and show that death rate is higher among the unemployed than those with regular employment without giving details of the data sample. It fails to mention the age range of the survey participants, their background, whether it is rural or urban, and most importantly their number. It may be possible that the sample range is small, rendering the study unfeasible; or that most participants are too old; or that a majority of the participants are from villages, where it is possible that they don’t have access to good healthcare. Without these details, we cannot come to any conclusion, leave alone one that is so strong and bleak. Moreover, the argument says that because death rate is higher among the unemployed than those with regular employment, those who will become unemployed as a result of the nation’s economy deteriorating will die soon. This seems like a causal flaw. Just because death rate among the unemployed is higher doesn’t mean that those who become unemployed will die. With this assumption proving to be wrong, the argument falls apart. The argument also says that unemployment is a significant health issue, just like cancer and heart disease, without saying anything to justify this claim. This is an analogous flaw. The argument doesn’t give any data to reach such a strong conclusion. Without knowing the comparable statistics, how are we to be sure that unemployment is as serious a disease as heart ailment and cancer. With the several flaws in the argument being pointed out, it is clear that the government doesn’t need to cut back on spending in the fear that it will affect the nation’s economy and eventually harm its citizens due to increase in unemployment. Without accurate statistics and enough information that justifies the argument’s conclusions, we can dismiss the argument as flawed.

I am here to ask for advice or suggestions and input on my profile as I will be applying to masters programs in Europe as a Non-EU applicant. know that I don't have an impressive GPA nor do I have the sit-in math classes in my major to compete with. My econ program isn't too quantitative, and financially, I can't afford to take the math classes necessary to major or minor in math. I also transferred into my university from a community college and time costed me a lot to build an undergraduate record for great recommendation letters or a chance at PhD or masters programs in Economics. Lastly and most importantly, thank you for your time and interest in attending this thread.
  10. Hello! Im applying to economics masters programs in the next few months and I'm curious to see how prepared I am for an advanced degree in econ? I've taken the following courses: Introductory/intermediate/advanced micro & macro (intermediate and advanced courses covered what you would expect, but very quant-intensive) Statistics I, II, and III for economists (covering everything from basic probability concepts, to regressions with time series data, to simultaneous equations and two-stage least squares etc etc.) Mathematical Economics I & II (covering univariate, multivariate calculus, Khun-Tucker, integration, linear algebra, static and dynamic optimization [diff eq] with economic applications) Advanced Mathematics for Economists (PDEq, topology, dynamic optimization) Calculus I & II Applied Econometrics (maximum likelihood, constructing price indices, estimation and forecasting with univariate time series processes etc.) Econometrics I (the simple and multiple classical regression models, problems of mis-specified structures, multi-collinearity, and forecasting etc...lots of proofs). What are your thoughts? I know the information I provided is a little sparse, but does it look like I am prepared for an advanced degree in economics? And bonus question...answer if you want..what sorts of schools am I a competitive applicant for given that I received A's in all of these courses and scored a 163 on the GRE quant? Thank you!
  11. I'm currently a senior year student in the EE department at aBangladeshi University, and I'm 2 months away from graduation. I'm consideringapplying to US universities for graduate studies. I expect to graduate with aCGPA of about 3.8 (junior and senior year: 3.93). I am a bit confused as towhat to choose for my Graduate research field. My research experience includes two different fields. First, I participated in an International Competition,developing a Machine Learning system (software) for classifying the origin ofmedia recordings. Second, for my undergraduate research I've worked onnanophotonics, in particular, the enhancement of light trapping in novel solarcells via metal nanoparticles with computational methods. Now, while applying for graduate schools I'm confused as towhich line of research would be better for me. I'm highly enthusiastic about modern (quantum) physics ingeneral, so I am naturally drawn towards nanophotonics/solid state/ quantumelectronics. But, I'm unsure about the future of these fields and the kind ofjobs that these fields entail, and the chances of even getting a job. On the other hand, I am a good programmer, and I feel likeDeep Learning/ Machine Learning programs would be a safe and good choice,because of the possibility of a lot of application of these fields in the nearfuture. I do enjoy working on these also, but I have never before thought aboutgoing into these fields. So, could anyone who knows about the implications of workingon any these areas discuss the kind of work that I would be doing and putforward any suggestions as to which might be a better choice. Any suggestion ingeneral is welcome. Thanks a lot for your time.
  12. When i started finding professor it was really a toilsome work . Now me with one of my friend made a video out of all our ways those we found easy . Now i am sharing it with u guys purely on academic purpose . :)
  13. I got admits in Universitat des Saarlandes for a master's in CS, Uni-Potsdam for a master's in Cognitive System and Uni-Stuttgart for a master's in CS. Which should I attend, depending on its education and career aspects? 1- Universitat des Saarlandes (Computer Science) 2- University of Stuttgart (Computer Science) 3- University of Potsdam (Cognitive Systems) Which one to attend for winter 2015/16 intake? Need your suggestion! Thanks :)
  14. I'm completely hopeless now that I realize what kind of signal a low GRE Quant score can send out to grad schools. I want your advice on how to pull off an admission offer for a Masters Economics most possibly in United States. Here is my profile Type of Undergrad: PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: University of London Distance Learning Program (BSc Economics) - This program is run by LSE and taught by affiliated institutions across the globe. University of London International Programmes with academic direction provided by LSE. - University of London International Programmes - Study - Home GPA: Don't know how to convert, I currently fulfill all requirements for a 2:1 (Upper Second Class Honors) GRE: Q 156 (64th percentile) V 147 A 4.0 TOEFL: 104 (Speaking: 29) Math Courses: Calc I (A-) Calc II (A-) Mathematical Economics (A-) (involves Static and Dynamic Optimization, Differential Eq, Control Theory) Statistics I (B) Statistics II (A-) (Prob Theory, Distributions, Inference) Linear Algebra and Real Analysis (C+) Econ Courses: Principles Micro&Macro (A-) Intermediate Micro (A) Intermediate Macro (B+) Intro Econometrics (A-) Monetary Economics (A) International Economics (B) Research &Teaching: None SOP: Made a thesis proposal by describing a research topic in monetary policy tools and effectiveness, also highlighted a academic excellence award received at the end of 2013/14 semester Applied to: UBC, Tufts, CEMFI, BGSE, UCL, Duke, Wisconsin, Grad-Geneva, NUS, Boston, Texas-Austin, Warwick Rejected by: BGSE, UCL (within 2 weeks) Accepted by: None so far Concerns: 1) Did my GRE score close the curtains on my hopes? I had carefully assessed whether I needed to retake it but UBC and UCL have mentioned a minimum requirement of 156 in quant section and BGSE mailed me that GRE is not as important as your quant subjects grades. Although that shouldn't count now as 2 out of those 3 already rejected my application. NUS, Warwick didn't require GRE. It is too late to retake it anyways. Have I made a critical error? 2) Knowing my profile and places I applied and rejections I got, can you advise on where I should NOW apply as a backup, possibly in US for MA Economics? I don't necessarily want to pursue a PhD and wouldn't mind working in industry for economic research institutions or financial services. How reputed are NC State, Georgia State, Georgetown, UColorado-Denver, Texas A&M, Florida State for their economics departments and in particular masters programs not just in terms of getting into PhD in the future but also for getting into job market? Any other places in Canada, UK, Europe? 3) Also, what will be good options for MPP or Public Administration programs as well as Masters in Finance (leaving out the elite group of MIT, Princeton, Vanderblit) ? How good are Arizona State, Temple U, Massachusetts-Boston and IIT Stuart? Would really appreciate some input Thanks a lot for your time P.S. My grades were in UK percentage scale and hence I used WES website to convert them as follows: [TABLE] [TR] [TD=colspan: 2]Grading Scale[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD][TABLE] [TR] [TD=class: Title, bgcolor: #FFCC33]Scale[/TD] [TD=class: Title, bgcolor: #FFCC33]U.S. Grade Equiv.[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #ffffff]70-100[/TD] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #ffffff]A[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #EEEEEE]65-69[/TD] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #EEEEEE]A-[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #ffffff]60-64[/TD] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #ffffff]B+[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #EEEEEE]50-59[/TD] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #EEEEEE]B[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #ffffff]45-49[/TD] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #ffffff]C+[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #EEEEEE]40-44[/TD] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #EEEEEE]C[/TD] [/TR] [TR] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #ffffff]0-39[/TD] [TD=class: info, bgcolor: #ffffff]F[/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE]
