  2. Hi everyone, I would like to get some advice regarding UBC (University of British Columbia) Masters program for a stepping stone for Economics PhD. How much would it help to get me into a good PhD program? I did apply to PhD programs this cycle but seem not to get any offers and applied to UBC Masters program as a recommendation from one of my professors for a backup plan. To help giving me advices and suggestions, here is my background: Profile: Type of Undergrad: Top 50 Public (Math Honors, Econ Honors, & Engineering) Undergrad GPA: 3.56 Type of Grad: Top 20 Private (Applied Mathematics & Statistics) Grad GPA: 3.91 GRE: 153 V, 170 Q, 3.5 W Math Courses: Calculus I/II/III (A,B+,A), Real Analysis I/II (B+,A-), Linear Algebra I/II (B+,A), Differential Equation (A-), Group Theory (B), Stochastic Analysis (A-,A), Bayesian Statistics (A-), Mathematical Finance (A), Stochastic Methods in Finance (A-), Analysis of Algorithm (A+), Probability & Statistics I/II (A,A), Statistical Methods in Data Analysis I/II (A,A), Graduate Level Statistical Modeling (A-), Graduate Level Probability (A), Graduate Level Linear Algebra (A), Graduate Level Statistical Inference (A), Graduate Level Data Mining (A), Graduate Level Machine Learning (A), Graduate Level Deep Learning (A) Econ Courses: Basic/Intermediate Micro (A+,A), Basic/Intermediate Macro (A+,A), Econometrics I/II (A+,A+), Corporate Finance (A), Investment (A), Risk & Uncertainty (A+), Statistical Methods in Economics (A+), Managerial Economics (A+), International Trade (A+), Asymmetric Information (A), Honor Thesis in Economics (A) Research Experience: 2 year of Mathematics & Statistics Research as undergraduate, 1 year of Econometrics Research & Honor Thesis as undergraduate, 1 year of Statistics and Machine Learning Research as graduate student. Will the Masters Program at UBC improve my chance getting into Economics PhD? I saw the program and seems to be mathematically rigorous + has a research requirement to graduate. I am aiming for any school in top 50 worldwide. Thank you very much before hand, I really appreciate any helps!
  3. I'm an idiot. I just notice the program 's website says: Applicants to the Ph.D. program should have completed the coursework listed above for entrance to the M.S. program. In addition, applicants should have completed: microeconomic theory at the M.S. level econometrics or mathematical statistics at the M.S. level multivariate calculus and linear algebra I double major in math and econ and have real analysis, linear algebra, math stats, probability, and all but they are not M.S. level courses. Should I not apply? The application is due like...tomorrow.
  4. What are the factors to be considerd? For example, a professor at my university graduated from a very top management phd program, has around 10000 citations (relatively young), has a dozen of publications in the A-journals in the field, has been as one of the emerging scholars by SMS, and is an associate editor at SMS. I was wondering, what'd be the level of the prestige and reputation enjoyed by this professor? And how could I these criteria mentioned to judge the reputation and prestige of other professors? Thanks for reading!! I was told to come here to ask this question. Please help me out!!
  5. Hello! Would you (particularly those of you who are in adcoms) say that it is inadvisable to delve too much into then ongoing graduate level math papers at the time of application and when writing the statement of purpose to enter an Econ PhD program? I know that math is seen as a good thing generally, but don't know if then ongoing graduate level math papers (in topology) might be viewed as a misappropriation of time? There will be, however, at the time of application two writing samples of completed graduate level economics manuscripts (both relevant to the strengths of the school of interest and its faculty). I just don't know if I should divulge that I'm working on math papers at the time or just not mention it (they'll see "Directed Research" on my transcript). Thank you...
  6. Does the stress level of students in Accounting PhD programs vary much by school? Are lower ranked programs less stressful? Do some programs have a less/more pressurized culture? Any schools in particular? Thanks for your input.

    English Level Test

    Hi all, I've just started preparing for TOEFL. How can I know my current English level? I found so many online english level tests. I'm actually confused which one is best. I need your suggestions. Thanks in advance.
  8. Hi all, One of my friends in my Master's program wants to know what kinds of schools he should looking at: Undergraduate: Boston University School: Questrom School of Business Major: Finance GPA: 3.14 Graduate: Boston University Major: Economics GPA: 3.2 Economics Classes Taken: Undergraduate Micro/Macro: B/B, Master's Level Micro/Macro: B/B Master's Level Econometrics/Statistics: B/B Master's Level Grad Electives: B+/A-/A- Master's Level Economists for Mathematics: B PHD-level Macro: B+ Math Classes Taken: Calc I/II/III: A/A/A Linear Algebra: A- Intro to Analysis I/II: A/B+ Probability and Statistics: B GRE: Q 167/V 158/W 5.5 Research Experience: Two years of Experience Working with a BU Econ professor Recommendations: Two BU Econ Professors (one whom is ranked in the top 200 of all economists) and the BU instructor for Analysis (Full Professor at BU in Mathematics) Interest: Macroeconomics, Monetary Economics What kinds of programs should he be looking at?
  9. Undergrad: Northeast Asian Top university GPA: 4/4.3, Major: Econ GRE:170Q/165V.

Thanks for reading:) Good luck to all of you.
  10. “A nation should require all of its students to study the same national curriculum until they enter college.” Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position. Requiring schools across the national to teach their students the same immersive and well-rounded curriculum will have a net benefit to the educational system in the country. By doing so, the mandate will raise the level of education among the general population, eliminate basis in terms of increased funding for wealthier school districts, and level the playing field for higher education admission. By requiring a national curriculum, the nation can vastly increase the education of the average citizen. There may exist holes within a given curriculum at a school, and moreover, these holes may be widespread throughout a region of the country. This could leave many citizens without the education necessary to go above and beyond in their respective post high school careers. By instituting a curriculum for all schools in the nation to follow, the nation can assure its citizens are prepared for their subsequent endeavors. Furthermore, a mandated national curriculum can expel biases in the general public, and more importantly, potential employers that result from a student coming from a less sufficiently funded school district. Deficits in funding for school districts is a much larger problem that is beyond the scope of the argument, however, requiring all students to be up to par with the same material can work to bring all students to an adequate level of knowledge about a variety of academic fields. Continuing with this notion of raising the level of education of graduating students to the same level, such an initiative would provide students in lower income school districts with a step up to being competitive with the pool of applications into colleges and universities across the country. While there are certainly many other aspects of the college admission process, having all students apply with roughly the same level of knowledge would not only allow admission committees to focus on other areas of a student's application that make them unique, but would also take the load of academic preparedness off the student's shoulders and allow them to focus on those aforementioned areas of their application to distinguish themselves from other applicants. In conclusion, we note the benefits to a nation's education by requiring all students to larn from a national curriculum until entering college. We have illustrated that by doing so, the edcuation level of the nation will raises up to fill any deficits in preparedness for their adult life, biases surrounding school distrcits of lesser funding can be eliminated, and students will be more evenly compared when applying to colleges.

  11. Hi ! This is my very first post on the forum or any forum for that matter. Anxiety got the better of me. I intend to apply to LSE MSc Econ course as an international student. I would really appreciate if somebody could help me gauge my chances. My profile in short: UG: Triple major in Econ, Stats and Math from a top 5 institution in my country Grades: > 80% agg (distinction) GRE ( 163Q 162V) EA's Econ research assistant 2 national level economics competitions under my belt Executive member of econ committee Revived an econ club 2 internships with Big 4 corporate finance and M&A dept 2 publications in college journal 2 research projects (1 is underway) Others National level accolades for painting and sports Recommendations from HOD from Econ dept and Dean I would really appreciate a feedback and suggestions, if any, regarding what other schools I could possibly consider? I am also slightly concerned (read: panicking) over my GRE scores. Does it call for a reattempt? Thanks :)
  12. Dear all, I am trying to figure out the best master degree option for placing me to top level UK or top 40 US and I am VERY interested in staying in Barcelona for my master. Any advice or comment would be really appreciated (Especially current or old BGSE students!). My concern is whether I can really handle advanced track or not. I've done my bsc economics in the UK and took as many theory courses as possible and did quite well on them. However, my university is not a stellar one, around top 15, hence, my econ courses may not be as rigorous & challenging as top univ like Oxbridge or LSE. Moreover, BGSE standard track seems to be almost the same level as the most British msc economics: LSE msc economics, 1st year Oxford Mphil and UCL msc econ (I may be completely wrong though) and advanced track is more like LSE, UCL MRes level and 2nd year Oxford. Hence, rather than taking advanced track straightaway, I might choose to study standard and apply for MRes at BGSE (so called delayed(?) track) to stay one more year for advanced track and make phd applications while I am doing advanced ones. Do any of you think my scenario convincing? or should I force myself to the advanced track? as it is far better option.

  14. Hey everyone, looking for some advice PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: Top European Business School, Economics B.A. Undergrad GPA: 5.34/6 (3.56 when linearly converted) Type of Grad:Top European Business School, Quantitative Economics M.A. Grad GPA: 5.34/6 (3.55 when linearly converted) GRE: Q 170, V 170, AWA 5 Math Courses: BA level: Statistics (4.5/6)MA level: Statistics (5.5/6), Mathematics (5.5/6), Adv. Math and Statistics (4/6), Dynamic Programming (6/6) Econ Courses: BA level: Micro 1&2 (5.5/6, 5/6), Macro 1&2 (5/6, 5.5/6), Metrics (5/6), Game Theory (5/6), Behavioral Econ (6/6), Trade (5.5/6), Economic Growth (5/6), Labor Economics (5/6), Environmental Economics (6/6) MA level: Adv.

Very well Professor I'm currently RA/TA'ing for, also had a class with him, close personal contact Third letter writer will probably be a professor I had for a class with a research project. Research Experience: BA thesis, good grade (5.75/6) 3 months RA, mainly data collection. 5 months RA (different prof), helping on various projects, also focused on data work. Teaching Experience: None direct, prepared a lot of teaching materials (slides, exercise sheets) over last few months. Research Interests: Applied Micro, possibly Theory SOP: None yet Concerns: Lack of math courses (can't really be helped, at my university). Even though I've had to use a lot of Calculus, linear algebra, a little real analysis, haven't had classes specifically on these. Rather small and unknown school for Economics (very well regarded in Management though). The professors do have a decent amount of contact with the US though. I'm wondering if I have a shot at Top 20 US. Any advice is appreciated!
  15. PROFILE Type of Undergrad: Flagship State University in United States (Top 80~90) Double Degree in Mathematics (Statistics Emphasis) BS & Economics BS GPA: Cumulative: 3.4/4.0, Major: 3.7(Math), 3.7(Econ) Type of Graduate: Top University in South Korea Master Degree in Business Administration Grad GPA: 3.76/4.0 GRE: V/Q/A: 154/167/3.0 Math Courses: Honors Calculus1,2(B+,A) Discrete(A) Linear Algebra(A) Differential Equation(A) Analysis 1,2(A-,B+) Applied Stat 1,2 w/ R Programming (B+,A-) Probability (A) Mathematical Statistics 1,2 (A-,B) Stochastic Processes(B+) Game Theory(A-) Actuarial Math(A-) Econ Courses: Intro Micro, Macro(A,A) Intermediate Micro Macro(A-,A), Econometrics(A-), International Econ(A), Prob.& Stat. for Econ (A) Game Theory (A-), Master level Macroeconomics (A-) Graduate Courses: PhD level Econometrics (A), Master level Behavior Econ Research(A-) Master Level Asset Pricing Research (A-) and a lot of Accounting Research Seminars (e.g. Financial Acct., Managerial Acct., Tax Acct.) Research experience: Doing RA/TA for more than 1 year with professor in Business Dept. Writing Master Thesis related to Managerial Economics. Teaching experience: None Letter of Recommendation: My Master Thesis advisor (should be good), and professors from graduate level classes (mostly based on my test score or overall grade). I am planning to apply for 2018 PhD program in US. I majored in both math and econ in undergrad. And reason I majored in Business is that I was interested in doing research in firm’s behavior. However, after reading some papers (e.g. Finance, Accounting) and conducting some research in Business, I realized that my interest is in economics, which deals with more broad area and have more solid theoretical background. I have a research interest in applied micro economics, labor econ, industrial organization. My concern is that I have low cumulative undergrad GPA, poor GRE Verbal/AWA, and doesn’t have very strong recommendation. And also have some B+ in Mathematics Courses. I don’t have good idea which school range my above profile fits. Personally I am aiming to apply for top 20~40 schools. I made school list below that I think a bit appropriate. (I know some schools are too high for me but just a rough guess) Minnesota Wisconsin UCLA Duke Cornell Brown PSU OSU BU Maryland WUSTL Rochester MSU RICE BC UIUC UNC UC Davis Vanderbilt Pitt UA ASU Iowa UW Georgetown I will be really appreciated if you give my some comments on my profile and which school I should be aiming for or got a shot at.
