  1. I have offers from the following master programs: – MSc in Economics (one year) at LSE, – Master in Economic and Social Sciences (two years) at Bocconi, Which offer should I accept? If you think I should accept X, how much better is that compared to accepting Y? (I only have until Friday 25 July to respond, so I would appreciate any thoughts as soon as possible! :)) Some background about me: – I have done RA work for two years, so I already have two good letters. – I have a fairly weak math background, so I hope to take a master that can signal that my math abilities are strong. – I aim for an academic career with the next step being a PhD in economics either in the US or at a top institution in Europe. Although in case I change my mind, it would be useful to know how these programs are perceived outside of academia as well (especially in policy). – My main research interest is microeconomic theory, especially decision theory and game theory. Thanks! (I posted a similar post at EJMR a couple of days ago. Having looked at some of the threads on the Urch forum, my impression is that answers are of a higher quality here)
  2. Hi guys! I wanted to get feedback on whether I have a strong application for ESS. My application has been rejected in the 2nd round. But I am planning to apply again in the 4th round. Wanted to understand what I can improve and whether ESS takes applications till the 4th round. GRE - 166 - Q and 155 - V Bachelor's Grade - 9.08/10 I had not given the video interviews
  3. Hi All, I recently graduated with a BSc in economics degrees and have been applying to Master programs for the terms 20/21. As of now I hold offers from UCL and BGSE (BGSE incl. 50% tuition waiver and havent heart back of LSE as of now), however, I am very unsure which program I should choose. I initially had a preference for the UCL programm for the following reasons: I am more interested in Micro-/Labour-economics and BGSE seems to be better for Macroeconomics. I also heard that the quality of the courses at UCL is supposedly better than at the GSE and that it seems to be easier to graduate with distinction from UCL because the cohorts are more consistent. Regarding reputation, both programs seem to be more or less equally well regarded, however, I heard/read everything from UCL >> BGSE to BGSE >>> UCL. Most of these issues are of course very subjective so I am happy to hear your thoughts! I now received the offer from BGSE with a 50% tuition waiver (making it approx. 60% cheaper than UCL) and I am now wondering whether going to UCL for the reasons above outweights the difference in tuition fees. I am planning on going on to a "good" PhD program afterwards and potentially staying in academia so scoring well in the masters and also obtaining a degree of a well-regarded university seems to be quite important. So is UCL better than BGSE or is BGSE the better choice? Thank you a lot for taking the time to read through my question! Any recommendations or opinions would be much appreciated! Quick facts on my profile (since helpful for reference for future info seekers): * Graduated with an equivalent of a first class degree (Top 5%) from a "Top 3 University" in Germany (according to rankings at least). * GRE - Quant 165 * Worked as a RA and did a few internships at banks, insurances, economic consulting firms etc. (in hinsight found that to be helpful for master applications)
  4. Hi, I have been accepted into both these programs and having a hard time deciding between the two. I aspire to get a PhD in Economics from a top ranked university. Which of the 2 programs would you suggest? Factors to consider: Assuming cost is not a consideration and I am indifferent between London and New York as far as 2 yrs of Masters is concerned, which program presents better PhD prospects for me? My background: 1. Bachelors and masters in engineering from one of IITs in India - didn't do very well academically there 2. Worked in risk management in New York for a multinational financial institution for 3.5 yrs 3. Took some undergrad econ and math classes at Columbia on part-time basis and got straight As. 4. No research experience in economics as of now 5. One publication in machine learning in 2013 Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi all, There's a pretty large group of Canadian applicants on here, and I've noticed similar threads in previous years. Hopefully this gets a sticky post!
  6. I'm looking into European MA programs, and I was hoping someone could give me a little more information on Paris School of Economics APE program. 1. Should I be applying to M1 or M2? I have an honours BA in Economics with advanced undergrad courses in Micro, Macro and Econometrics. Is M2 reserved for people who already have graduate-level coursework, or just advanced undergrad? 2. Does anyone have any information (or can direct me to good threads) on typical admissions standards or profiles (GRE, GPA, LOR, etc.) 3. Any general thoughts/experience with the program is welcome.
  7. Thanks in advance for any help- I just finished my undergrad at a so-so economics dept. in Canada. My marks are great, have good recommendations etc. but I kind of decided late in the game that I wanted to do a PhD, so I don't have the most extensive math background, especially with proofs. I'm taking a year off school and moved to Toronto to work in policy, applying to master's programs in the Fall- I'm fairly confident that I can get into a top 4 program in Canada, based on placements of similar students at my school/conversations with people on this forum. I have some free time this year though, and I want to take a U of T math course at some point to a) boost my application for PhD time and b) make sure I really kick *** once I start master's classes. Here's my math background: Calc I-II (A+,A), Statistics I-II (A,A), Linear Algebra (A-), Multivariate Calc for Economics(A+) I'm looking at a few math courses, but I want some advice on which courses I'm both likely to do well in based on my experience, but will be really good for signalling and for masters prep. I have a few in mind: MAT157Y1 - Analysis I MAT237Y1 - Multivariable Calculus MAT244H1 - Introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations MAT336H1 - Elements of Analysis MAT337H1 - Introduction to Real Analysis With 3 potential courses in Analysis, I'm pretty unsure of which to do. Analysis 1 goes over some stuff I learned in Calc II, but only part of it, and I took that course in my first year. The two third year Analysis courses are all new to me, and would probably be better signals, but I have no idea whether I would be able to do well in them. Here's a description of the courses, for context: https://fas.calendar.utoronto.ca/section/Mathematics Thanks
  8. Hi everyone- I've been lurking for a while, but I'd like to ask for some help on starting my graduate schools search process with the goal of applying in the Fall or Winter of this year. I just graduated from my BSc Hons and I'm taking a year to work and apply for graduate programs for the Fall 2018 term. So far I'm primarily interested in Canadian MA programs (UofT, UBC, Queens, McGill) but I'd like some feedback on my profile to determine whether it's worth it to apply to any top international programs like LSE, UCL, Boston University or Duke. My long term goals are to work in the public sector in Canada, an international organization or in a think tank. If I can accomplish this with only an MA then I'd be open to it, but I'd also like to keep the door open to pursue a PhD if need be. If anyone has any tips on applications, or any suggestions on programs that I ought to look into, that would be much appreciated. Here's my details: PROFILE Type of Undergrad: Mid-level Canadian research university, with a reasonably strong MA and PhD programs. Undergrad GPA: 4.06/4.3 *Note: the Canadian GPA system is essentially the same as the US, with an A grade receiving a 4.0, but an A+ grade (above 90) receives a 4.3. GRE: Still have to write. Reasonably sure I can do well- my fundamental math skills are very good and my analytical writing is superb thanks to beginning my undergrad as a philosophy major. Math Courses (Undergrad Level): Calc I-II (A+,A), Statistics I-II (A,A), Linear Algebra (A-), Multivariate Calc for Economics(A+). Econ Courses (Undergrad Level): Standard Intro and Intermediate Micro/Macro with A/A+ in all. Labour (A+), Public Finance (A+), Poverty and Inequality (A), Advanced Micro and Macro (A+ in both). Econometrics I-II (A+, A). Bunch of other economics electives with A- to A+ in all (except for a B+ in international finance!!!). Econ Courses (Grad Level): Took a masters level Health economics course with a well-published prof and received an A+ Other Courses Taken: 7 philosophy courses with A+ to A- grades. A few Poli Sci with A/A-. LOR: I have commitments for 3 letters. Strong commitment from a very well known prof in my field of interest- Yale grad, visiting prof at Oxford, published 100+ articles and over a dozen books. Another from a reasonably well-known prof who taught me the graduate health course (UBC grad). 3rd is basically unknown but was my honours advisor and knows me very well. Research Experience: Econometrics term paper, won award for best econometrics paper. Honours thesis (also won award for the best honours thesis). Currently working as a research assistant in the Canadian government. Teaching Experience: Private tutor for 1 year. Research Interests: Poverty and Inequality, Public Finance, Population Health, Labour Concerns: I realize after reading this forum that many top students take many more math courses than I did. I do very well in math, but I elected to pursue a philosophy minor instead. While I do not regret it, since I feel that it's benefited me personally and intellectually, I wish I had taken Analysis. I will almost definitely graduate top 5 in my class, but I feel like that would mean more if I had gotten an A grade in an advanced mathematics course. Hopefully doing well on the GRE will signal that I have math ability.
  9. Hi all, I graduated in Spring 2015 from a relatively unknown university in South East Asia (top of my country though), with a bachelor in Business Economics. My GPA is around 3.5-3.6 on US scale and my GMAT is 740 (50Q 40V), but my curriculum, sadly, didn't have many math courses. I've always wanted to do a PhD in Management in the States (preferably on I/O or Managerial Econ side). Last year I got a full-ride, with stipend to Maastricht University in the Netherlands for a M.Sc. in Managerial Economics (1 year 2016-2017), but I turned that down in the last minute, since I wanted to try out the "real life" first, to be 100% sure I'm set on a career in the academia. Now that I have made up my mind, I've been applying to various programs in the US, and recently received a full-ride to Univ Iowa for their MBA program. However, I begin to doubt my decision. From what I've read on Urch, a master in Economics will be much more beneficial in applying to a PhD program, especially with a not-so-good math background like mine. Do you think I've made the wrong choice? Which is better, accepting the MBA scholarship and try to gain research experience, or apply to other master programs (Economics/Statistics) in Europe (US programs tend to offer no funding, and I can't afford their tuition)?
