My Target Scores

  1. Looking for information and help with the application process.
  2. Prompt: Manned space flight is costly and dangerous. Moreover, the recent success of a series of unmanned space probes and satellites has demonstrated that a great deal of useful information can be gathered without the costs and risks associated with sending men and women into space. Therefore, we should invest our resources in unmanned space flight." Write a response in which you examine the stated and/or unstated assumptions of the argument. Be sure to explain how the argument depends on these assumptions and what the implications are for the argument if the assumptions prove unwarranted. Essay: The argument states that we should invest our resources in unmanned space flight rather than manned space flight because of the following factors. The first factor is manned space flight is expensive and involves risk. The second factor is recent success of a series of unmanned space probes and satellites. The arguer does not take all the factors into account. The argument depends on few assumptions. If the assumptions prove invalid, then the argument falls apart. Firstly, the arguer assumes a great deal of information can be gathered without costs and risks associated with sending men and women by stating recent success series of unmanned space flights as evidence. The arguer does not state what is the information gathered from recent success series and is that information useful for everyone. The recent success series cannot guarantee future success of unmanned space flights. There are cases where more useful information can be gathered from manned space flight as unmanned space flights can gather only the intended information. In manned space flight, a man can gather information about unknown things. If any information could be gathered using using unmanned space flight, then it offers support to the argument Secondly, the arguer assumes that unmanned space flight is better compared to manned space flight as unmanned space flights are cheaper and involves less risk. The arguer does not state if any information can be gathered by unmanned flight. In case of manned space flights, a man can know how to handle risks and gather information. If manned space flights can gather some information which could not be gathered by unmanned space flight, it is better to invest in manned space flight to reap more profits though it is costly. However, if most of the information can be gathered by using manned and unmanned space flights, then it offers support to the argument. If the above assumptions are unwarranted, then it undermines the argument. When all factors which are used for gathering the information are taken into account, they can be used to strengthen or weaken the argument.
  3. To facilitate information sharing on the forum, please feel free to share as much information as you feel comfortable sharing about your received interviews, admission offers, or rejections. The following format has been in prior years: Notification Type (e.g., skype interview, flyout interview, waitlisted, accepted, rejected): Institution Name: Concentration Applying to (e.g., strategic management, finance, accounting, org behavior, marketing, etc.): Date of Notification: Type of Notification (e.g., email, phone, snail mail): Additional Comments: If you are fortunate enough to get a callback (interview or acceptance) from one of your top schools, congrats! If not, then remember ... several universities are probably pursuing the same candidates. By the time most of them make their decision, the programs that they decided not to go to are likely to have to go down the waitlist. Students at the top of their waitlists may have already accepted offers at other programs! Remember, it does't matter if you were their top pick or not! If you got in the program (for whatever reason), you're in! Best of luck!
  4. I have been put on Minnesota waitlist. According to a poster on this forum it seems that UMN has been admitting people from the waitlist. Can anyone else confirm? A thread to share anxiety and information as well, similar to the Duke thread.
  5. Hi Urch! I wonder if anyone has information about the Sloan management PhD program in the information technology group. I come from a very typical econ background so I don't have much information of it. Their graduates mostly go to info system departments but only a few schools have these. I wonder how you would compare this to general econ programs. Thanks!
  6. Duke has waitlisted me. I am sure there are many in the same boat. GC shows more WLs than acceptances. Lets use this to share information, and anxiety!
  7. I'm here to know about graduate programs and related information. It is nice to know that people are providing useful information here to create more transparent application process! I hope I can contribute some useful posts, too!
  8. Hello all, My name is Megan Gorges and I'm an incoming PhD student in Organizational Behavior at Harvard Business School. I'm excited to announce a new wiki intended to provide guidance for those applying to PhD programs in business schools: businessphdwiki.com This wiki was developed in collaboration with Abhishek Nagaraj (Assistant Professor at Berkeley Haas) and Stephen Turban (also an incoming PhD student in OB at HBS). We created this to give open access to the "insider" information we gathered through our own journeys, and to help level the playing field for all aspiring business school academics. The wiki covers a host of topics including what it means to pursue a career in business academia, tactical guidance on the application process (including example essays and CVs from successful applicants), and the rise of pre-doctoral research positions. This is set up as a wiki (editable by anyone!) precisely because it is missing a lot of information, so if you are already in a PhD program or are further along in your academic career, please edit to share your own wisdom! Specifically, it would be great to incorporate perspectives from those outside OB (marketing, finance, etc.) and to add more information on how to achieve success during the PhD and beyond. Please feel free to share the wiki with anyone else who might find it useful!
  9. Hi, I am interested in applying for Ph.D in Information Systems and I'd like to know what's my edge for getting into top program. I acknowledge that my GRE is a little shy of good score (esp. quant... I had full mark score but the verbal part is not competitive) but a professor that I am working with said I might get some advantages that I have MSCS from prestigious school and I can include working paper when I apply. However, I still cannot even weigh my chances because of lack of data & information. Here's my brief profile. Test Scores (GMAT/GRE): (Note: It often helps a lot more if you list the percentiles each of your raw/composite scores are associated with) GRE: Verbal 158, Quant: 167, GMAT conversion (from ETS): 700 Undegrad GPA: 92.8% (dual degree in Computer Engineering & Business Administration, out of US) Graduate GPA: 3.56/4 (Master's Science in Computer Science, school from undoubtably top 30 in CS, in the US) Research Experience: One domestic(non-English) conference publication in Computer Science, currently working on a research in Information Systems field with two professors. Teaching Experience: None Work Experience: only internships Concentration Applying to: Information Systems Number of programs planned to apply to: 10 Dream Schools: NYU, MIT, CMU, UPenn (I haven't explored the faculties though) What is average GMAT/GRE score for top-school accepted students? I have concentrated on machine learning during my master, will it make some differences? Thanks in advance.
  10. Hi, Do you think that the situation right now might impact all the international students that would be looking to get student visas this summer? Or do you suppose it will calm down by the summer ? Has anyone received information from universities regarding this ? Thanks ! Stay safe and wash your hands.
  11. Hello. I hope everyone is starting to get good news from PhD programs. I myself have applied to both sociology and management/OB PhD programs. There is a lot of information online on the overall health of the sociology job market, e.g., how many jobs and how many PhD graduates per year, what typical placement is for a productive student at a top program. However, there is very little information I can find on the Business School Job Market. I know I can see some placements on individual university websites. But is there any good information on the business school job market overall? Information that will help me compare sociology and business in terms of job market quality? Information that will give me a sense of "how likely I am to get an R1 job", for example?
  12. Hypothetically, if I were to begin a PhD programme without taking the graduate school classes, would I be able to independently learn the information to perform good research? I.e. to learn the relevant information using online material available from other universities? Or would the lack of classes be a hurdle in achieving the relevant technical knowledge of the frontier of research and so translate to poorer quality research?
  13. Hi, Please dont know if there's any pharmacist from Nigeria, who has already written the FPGEE. I really need some information about the requirements for the FPGEE examination. Please...

  15. Hi, would appreciate if someone could review and give me feedback on my GRE issue essay!! :) The prompt: Claim: Restaurants should be required to display nutritional information about the food they serve. Reason: This knowledge will help diners make healthy choices and reduce their risk of diet-related health problems. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim and the reason on which that claim is based. The Essay: As diet-related health issues continues to grow and diversify, it becomes increasingly critical for people to have knowledge of the nutritional contents in the food they eat. Places like grocery stores solve this problem by placing nutritional labels on practically all their products, but restaurants have yet to adopt the same concept. As a customer of a restaurant, besides a brief description of a dish on the menu, one would have no knowledge of what goes into making their meal. This becomes especially imperative in cases of allergies or other dietary restrictions such as vegetarianism or veganism. Additionally, the increasing prevalence of obesity and its diet-related health issues makes it crucial for people to have the information that they can use to make healthier choices. For these reasons, it should be a requirement of restaurants to display the nutritional information of all foods that they serve or have this information ready upon request. Food allergies are becoming increasingly popular and can often be life-threatening. Although most people are aware of the foods they’re allergic too, a common reason why people still suffer from allergy attacks, is because they are not aware that the allergen is present in the food they eat. Waiters and waitresses are required to inquire about any food allergies amongst their customers, however this information isn’t always passed along to the chef or they might not fully be aware of the presence of that food in every dish. These errors can often lead to life-threatening trips to the hospital and can be avoided by simply adding nutritional labels to the menu. These types of errors amongst restaurant staff is also critical in the case of other dietary restrictions such as vegetarianism and veganism. More people are starting to adopt lifestyle choices that restrict their diets in very different ways. Restaurant staff might not always be aware of all the different customizes someone might make to their diet. Personally, I have had an experience at a restaurant in which after telling the waiter I was vegan, I received food containing cheese because the waiter didn’t know that being vegan meant I couldn’t eat cheese. However, nutritional information doesn’t just contain the contents of the food we eat, but also the calorific count. We currently live in a society that has the highest obesity rates that we have ever seen. This leads to all sorts of diet-related health issues such as the infamous diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc. In order to combat this growing concern, people need to be given the information that will help them make healthier dietary choices. Although it might seem obvious what foods people should be eating or avoiding, even ordering a salad can be deceivingly unhealthy, containing an upwards of 1000 calories; approximately half one’s recommended daily intake. Often, restaurants add fattening products to their “healthier choices” to make them taste better sometimes making them unhealthier than the desserts. By providing the calorific information of each restaurant dish, customers will be able to make well-informed choices without the deception. One might present the argument that by providing the nutritional information of foods with high calorific contents, restaurants could be driving away their customers and thus reducing their income. Although this might be true, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing; as it might even encourage restaurants alter their dishes to become healthier and less calorific. Restaurants like “B. Good” and “Sweet green” even profit off the concept of publicizing the nutritional content of their food and marketing it as a healthy alternative. Additionally, the transparency creates more of a trusting relationship between the customer and the restaurant, causing customers to feel more comfortable knowing exactly what is in their food. Requiring restaurants to display the nutritional information of their food would benefit both the customer and the restaurant itself. It allows customers to have knowledge of the exact contents of their meals, which is critical in cases of food allergies and diverse dietary restrictions. It also allows them to make smarter, well-informed choices that will improve their overall heath and help reduce the risk of diet-related health issues. Restaurants can even benefit from the growing popularity of healthy food, and the increasing trust of their customers. Overall, these benefits are vast and make a convincing case to adopt this requirement in restaurants all over the nation.
  16. Hello! New user here. I'm an applicant from the USA who wants to pursue a masters in economics before (likely) pursuing a PhD in economics after completion. I don't have an undergraduate background in economics (information tech), and therefore I saw a masters as a good intermediary step. I was accepted to Boston University's MA in economics and Barcelona GSE's masters in economics. These are both my top two choices in schools. My strategy is to complete either program to the best of my ability, then pursue a research related position in back in the US. Based off of both websites, either schools has decent placement in both academic and non-academic areas. Here are my pros and cons for both: BGSE: Pros: Cheaper, depth and breadth of courses Cons: Not close to any major cities BU: Pros: Reputation of US uni, located in a major US city Cons: Price, course options are fairly standard and dry Where I received most placement information: Alumni Career Paths: Economics | Barcelona Graduate School of Economics Outcomes Your master’s degree comes with a side of the world | Economics BU isn't as transparent, however their welcome webinar provided some clue as to how well they place at least in the private sector. BGSE's website puts a favorable light on their program, but there is some bias obviously on how well they rate themselves. Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you!
  17. Hello Urchers-- Reading the various pieces of advice and profile evaluations on this forum got me thinking about the value of accumulated advice / anecdotes versus quantitative data. So naturally, I wrote a survey to collect information on our applicant profiles and admissions outcomes. This survey will not collect any identifiable information, but it will give us a basis for understanding the applicant pool at various universities and the likelihood that a person with a specific profile would be within the range of accepted applicants. Hopefully it will also give us some information on the relative importance of scores, GPA, letters, SOP quality (fuzzy to measure), personal connections / contact, work and research experience, English proficiency, etc. The survey should accommodate applicants to Economics and Business PhD programs, and is geared towards US programs. If you have specific suggestions (important data points I'm not including, revisions for clarity), please let me know. This is the product of a few hours of quick tinkering, so I'll be shocked if there are no errors. This is not formal research and has not been reviewed by any ethics committees, FYI. You can access the survey at the link below. Please take it only once, and take it AFTER you have received all of your admission results. This year's cohort will need to wait until March / April to complete the survey, but those of you who are already in PhD programs or who applied in previous cycles can provide information now. Survey link (via google forms) About you Good luck to the current applicants, and thank you to anyone who chooses to participate. (cross-posted in PhD in Business and PhD in Economics)

  19. Hello guys, I am interested in knowing the amount of funding (yearly stipend) that each school in top 30 provides to admitted students. I was trying to get this information via looking at gradcafe posts, but the information there is not complete. Can you share your information? Let me start first: NYU: $34,000 is common UCLA: $20,000-$27,000 UMich: $20,000-$23,000 UW-Madison: $22,000-$28,000 Cornell: $25,000-$32,000 Penn State: $28,000 is common Texas-Austin: $16,000-$18,000 UNC: $18,000-$21,000
  20. I am Zach, new to the forum, trying to search for information w.r.t my application for graduate schools!
  21. What kinds of information, both normal and special types, would resonate the most in a personal statement for MA in Economics? Especially if I'm trying to get a TA position? Thanks in advance.
  22. This forum has a long tradition of asking applicants to post their profiles in a standardized format, for ease of evaluation. I propose that those evaluating candidates do the same, to make it easy for readers to understand their perspective and qualifications. This proposal is grounded in a generic reason (asymmetric information is bad and experience informs judgement) and a specific one (I've read some advice with which I sharply disagree, and I happen to know that some of it comes from junior faculty members at institutions without PhD programs). I read a thread today in which a poster suggested disregarding some common advice about retaking math classes and wondered how someone should know how to evaluate the difference of opinions without more context about who offered them. I note that some regular posters have chosen to make themselves easy to identify, and knowing their credentials helps me interpret and trust their advice. Current status (tenure track faculty, non tenure track faculty, post-PhD non academic, upper year PhD candidate, pre-candidacy PhD student, prospective PhD student): If faculty, type of institution (PhD granting/R1, masters granting, BA/BS granting, LAC): If faculty, are you tenured? (yes/no): If faculty, have you served on a PhD admissions committee? (yes/no): If faculty, have you served on an MA admissions committee? (yes/no): If faculty, approximately how many students have you written LORs for as part of their PhD applications: If faculty, what is the approximate rank of school to which students you recommended have been admitted? What is the approximate rank of the school where you received your PhD/where you are currently enrolled? For students, what type of undergraduate institution did/do you attend? I've tried to come up with a format that preserves anonymity but provides relevant information about the reference points and experience of the people giving advice. Since people take advice and profile evaluations here seriously, it would be valuable to have more information to use to judge it, especially if it is different from the advice you get from people "in real life." I am not trying to shame anyone or suggest that people at higher ranked places know more, just to provide context to the advice people give. Someone with 20 years of experience admitting applicants to a top 10 department and writing LORs for undergrads from that same department will have a different perspective than a relatively new AP at a school without a graduate program. Both will have experience or information outside their personal employment, but it's hard to argue that it wouldn't be useful to know which of these people was providing the feedback you were reading. I welcome suggestions for changes to this format. If your first instinct is to oppose it entirely or dismiss the idea that knowing something of the experience or qualifications of the person offering advice, I encourage you to ask yourself why you believe that the information is unnecessary or bad. Once a format is established, I will be happy to post my own profile, though I will maintain my anonymity.
