  1. Good forums for everyone, Does any of the Philosophy, Political Sci., Sociology, Psychology, History, etc. social science double major will add value for an economics major who wants to do a Ph.D.? Instead of doing one of these, I'm taking as many math classes as I can for my elective spaces. Is it the right path in the undergraduate? Note: I cannot do math double major, unfortunately.
  2. My interest is to obtain a PhD in Business with a concentration in Management, Entrepreneurship, or Strat. My BA has a first major in Business and second major in History. I earned a MA in History from a top 50 US national university. This summer, I scored 328 on the GRE. While I am looking primarily at traditional US based PhD Business programs, I am also interested in other paths. Some unis in the UK will count my MA so that I can enter directly into a 3 - 4 year PhD. Another option is to take an AACSB PhD at the University of South Alabama or UNC Greensboro. If I want to shave 1 - 2 years off my program while still having the ability to obtain a future tenure track professorship, what option might you recommend?
  3. PROMPT: To understand the most important characteristics of a society, one must study its major cities. {Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.} A society is a major driver of a nation and it is also the society that determines its development. Cities are important to consider when studying a society but the major facets of a nation are more pronounced in the villages and towns as well as small cities of that culture. Thence, it is imperative to consider their culture and practices while formulating one’s viewpoints about a society to get a holistic understanding of how the society works. Studying major cities may facilitate a learning that is one-sided and skewed towards a certain section of society that resides in these important cities. Moreover, a significant part of the population is concentrated in the many villages and towns which form the main structure of the society. These entities are mainly agrarian in nature and are labeled as the backbone of a society. To ignore them and not consider their importance would be a shame. The approach of basing the exploration of a society’s elements merely on the processes and life in major cities is inherently classist. By doing so, one would be avoiding and disrespecting the development that the society’s peasantry and the townships have experienced. Metropolitan cities do not have an exclusive culture of their own when viewed from a reductionist lens of understanding. They are the hotspots for nearby villages, towns and cities to migrate to and seek better opportunities. A thorough understanding of a society is incomplete without giving enough credit to the pure cultural practices and rituals observed in these entities of a culture. It can be inferred that cities do not hold a pure culture and are continually experiencing major changes in terms of their population types and their practices. Therefore, it would result in an unstable understanding of the society. The signs of development in major cities are quite remarkable with some of them forming important epicenter or hubs to delineate a society’s understanding. However, the different colors and flavors of that development are a direct contribution of migrants and working class who in desolate search of opportunities have made the cities into what they are today. The cities can be considered as the creamy layer of a society with its advanced and much forward livelihoods and lifestyles but the rest of the cake is made up by the townships and village culture. It will be a problematic paradigm and would lack the inclusivity which is an important characteristic of a society. Nevertheless, the major cities can be broken down into small shards which are a subculture of their own, each derived from other villages, towns and cities. Hence, the elements which form the constituent parts of a society cannot be ignored while giving its large cities a major outlook.
  4. I am currently studying philosophy as an undergraduate at a T10 department (for economics). However, I have taken the following courses: (MATH): Calculus 1-3, Linear Algebra, Honors Analysis, ODE, Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics, and Topology (ECON): Micro/Macro theory, Introduction to Econometrics, Advanced Econometrics Is this a strong enough profile for PhD admissions? Also, a main concern of mine is that I don't have any research experience and, given my "soft" major, I won't be able to get any RAships. Thank you!
  5. Non-US Univ ranked Top 2 in Korea Major: Econ ; Minor: Math GPA : 3.95/4.5 Major : 4.1/4.5 Relevant Coursework: Econometrics I,II Macroeconomics Dynamics, Game Theory, Financial economics Analysis I,II, Topology I, Mathematical Statistics, Probability, Calculus I,II, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra I,II Work Exp.: 6 months at an Asian global IB (Equity Research) 3 months at one of the major BBs (Credit Risk) Research Exp.: One paper (undergrad level) on derivatives One paper (undergrad level) on exchange rates Recom. Letters: 2-3 good ones ready from econ profs, and planning one extra from industry personnel. How do you guys think would work out? I heard Phd Finance is a bit different from econ. How should I prepare?

  7. Hi! I have a Math major in one of the best Latin American universities and I'm interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in economics at a top university (like top 100), but I have only taken a few courses in economics (with high grades in them). I have research experience in Math and my GPA is 4.2/5.0. Do you think that I can get accepted (with financial aid) in a top Ph.D. economics program? Or should I get a Masters in economics first? Thanks!
  8. Hi everyone, Was wondering if anyone has any idea about the GPA cutoff that gets screened out in the initial stage for PhD Econ admissions. My overall GPA is 3.5 (graduated with honors) with Econ major GPA around 3.7 and Math major GPA around 3.6 (you can see my previous evaluation post here: https://www.www.urch.com/forums/phd-economics/161111-profile-evaluation.html). Could 3.5 be automatically screened out at top 10 schools or so? Thanks.
  9. 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?
  10. Hey guys, I got C in analysis and calculus 3 because I lived in my car this semester and took too many classes. Would you think is a better choice to retake or move on to take other high-level courses? Will Fourier analysis offset this? What is the best thing I could do to fix this? Is this means I am out of the question for top 10 programs? I am studying at Purdue, my major is math/stat, but I used to be a finance major and I transferred 3 schools, from China to a regional campus to here. Thanks
  11. I'm considering taking a few extra courses in order to gain a math major. Specifically I would take complex analysis and two semesters of algebra (every other math course required is one I'm taking anyway). Is this worth it, given that those classes are largely not relevant to econ as far as I know? Is there some signalling value to a math major or to these unrelated math courses that makes it worthwhile to take them?
  12. Should I even apply for 2019 enrollment or just wait a year and try to get some research experience and audit some courses? Undergrad: 2016, 4.21/4.30, US Ivy, business major, not a rigorous program, no advanced stats classes GRE: Q169 (96%), V165 (96%), AWA TBD No academic research experience except undergraduate CB thesis 1 year working in consumer marketing at a major US company SOP: Hopefully great LOR: Good, not great (no solid research rec) Research Interests: Motivation, value and belief structures, service industry Dream Schools: NYU, Columbia, many, but what's realistic? Should I even apply before somehow getting research experience?
  13. Hi all, Can anyone please evaluate my essay and give a general idea on how much I would be able to score? To understand the most important characteristics of a society, one must study its major cities. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.? The characteristics of a society are based on cultural and personal values when taken as a whole creates a uniqueness among the people belonging to the said society. In my opinion , I believe that although studying the major cities is important to get a general idea of the characteristics of a society it doesn't provide the most important characteristics. The population of Major cities are relatively less compared to the rural and semi suburban areas of a country. Therefore judging the characteristics of a society based on the populous of just Major cities which are not representative of the whole society can be erroneous. For example countries like India have Major cities like Mumbai and New Delhi where people live sophisticated and busy life styles. People in these cities work hard and are sometimes unable to even celebrate festivals like Diwali because they do not have the time. However this does not mean that the Indians do not celebrate Diwali anymore. On the contrary many people celebrate it for days quite extravagantly in Suburban areas of the country. In addition many oriental societies are known to spend time with elderly people and care for them even taking them into their homes. Most parents when they get old spend the last years of their lives with their children. However in most major cities elderly parents are sent to elders homes instead since most people do not have the time to take care of them due to their busy schedules. However, this does not mean that it is a characteristic of the said society. Additionally in Major cities the crime rates and thefts are high but this is not representative of the society as a whole and it certainly is not a characteristic of that society. However, the fact that the study of major cities will give a general idea of the characteristics of a community can be partly true. This can be due to the fact that Major cities are where people of all religious and ethnic backgrounds reside. In other words they are cultural melting points of a society. Therefore it can be said that some important characteristics of a society can be understood by observing the city populous. In conclusion while I believe that studying major cities can give a general Idea of the characteristics of a society it does not give us an idea about most of the important characteristics of a society. Thanks a lot
  14. To understand the most important characteristics of a society, one must study its major cities.

In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position.// Here the author tries to link the important features of a society with its major cities. The cities, in most cases, being impotant centres for trade and businesses, education and ministry, the author's argument seems more or less valid. Here it has been implicitly assumed that the most important activities that shape the features of a society happen in cities. In general, in a state, cities have ample centres for business. Most of rich and powerful businessmen reside in cities. From cities, they control the trade of commodities in towns and rural areas. Cities are not only centres for business, lots of major administrative centres are located in cities. From these centres, instructions are given what policies are to be adopted, what measures are to be taken for improvement of society. The Chief Minister of a state resides in the capital city of the state in general, along with his officials. They work hard to think of policies for welfare of state, and their instructions are followed throughout the state. In general, cities are far more urbanised than villages. The average standard of living in a city is also better than that in rural areas, in general. Thus, if standards of living in major cities in a state start to decline, if financial conditions of people living in cities somehow get worsened, one can conclude that the society is not in a very good shape. However, people esiding in rural areas tend to follow tradition and culture, and preserve them. So, if one wants to study folk culture of a society, it will not be wise to concentrate on cities only, ignoring rural parts of the state. In order to study major features of a society, one should concentrate on the cities, but it may not be wise to study the cities only ignoring towns and villages.
  15. The statement focus is on studying the major cities in order to understand the important characteristics of society. Society is group of people which are different from each other in so many aspects. So to understand the most important characteristics of society we need to study people from different backgrounds,religions,having different beliefs,customs etc. The most important characteristics of a society are social relationship between people living in it, their inter-dependency,their liking ,differences etc. Major cities have so many people living in it, came from corner of the country. So by studying major cities it is possible to understand characteristics of society up-to some extent. We have to study the cities like New York,Washington to understand the characteristics of United States. Similarly to understand the culture of India, we need to study the major cities in it like Mumbai,Delhi, Bangalore etc. For example Mumbai is the economical capital of India. It has people from various states of India living in it. It has a developed IT sector, World of Bollywood, So many Business Tycoons and Bombay Stock Exchange residing. On other hand it has a big slum area. Which represents a very big economical difference between two classes of society. People of so many religions are living in Mumbai, so the term "Unity in Diversity" can be understood by studying Mumbai. However major cities have impact of foreign culture on it as impact of globalization. Mahatma Gandhi Said "India is a Agricultural Nation".India has a very prosperous and great cultural history. But by looking towards Major cities like Mumbai, Delhi we may found this statement false.So to get complete understanding of the this culture, its beliefs we have to study small cities,their living style. To understand the cultural enrichment of India we have to study the Ajanta-Velora Caves,Lofty Of Sahyadri,Highness of Himalaya,Beauty Of Kashmir etc.We have to study the common people living there.Because people in small cities are more adherent to their religious belief, their customs,their festivals. People major cities are more inclined towards modernization. They are profit-seeking,development oriented. So to get the understanding of most important characteristics of society, one have to study major cities and in together to that the small cities and rural area.
