My Target Scores

  1. Can anyone tell me which EU universities offer masters in economics with scholarships that cover tuition and living expenses? I do not want to apply to Britain universities and I know about Bonn, CEMEFI, Carlos, BI, and Tinbergen. I applied them all.
  2. Hi all, I really don't know what range of schools to be looking at, or if I even have a chance of getting into an econ PhD program at all right now. I definitely want to at least keep that option open, perhaps by pursuing a masters or RA job first. Any brutally honest advice/info would be appreciated. Undergrad: Solid flagship state school, T50 econ GPA: 3.6 overall, 3.9 in economics classes Scores: 166Q/165V Classes Mathematical economics -- Varian Analysis (B+), Multivariable calc (B), Linear Algebra (C+), Diff Eqs ©, Statistics (B+) A's in Intermediate Micro/Macro, Econometrics, Econ of Taxation, Environmental Econ, Law and Econ, Banking and Finance, etc... Experience: Summer internship at policy think tank, econ tutor LORs: Should be solid Interests:Policy, tax, public econ, macro I know, my math is really a weak spot. Will I be able to get into a PhD program at all? Should I aim for an MSc/MA instead? How about a Public Policy PhD? Some PhD programs I'm interested in: UC Boulder, GWU, Georgetown, Oregon, Harris (policy), Duke (Sanford policy)... Masters: LSE, PSE, Barcelona, Duke, Tillburg, Tolouse Am I in over my head or just psyching myself out? Thanks!
  3. So I am currently in the Honours Econ program at McGill (technically joint honours) and, due to some financial and logistical considerations, I have a long-term decision I need to make within the next few months about what I want to do at the end of the 2018-2019 academic year. I am going to talk to my advisors about this too, but I thought I would put it out here and see what you guys think. Note that my long term goal is to pursue a PhD in econ. My current GPA in my econ program is 4.0, and while I will hopefully be able to maintain that, it might drop a bit if I get an A- at some point (obviously). So here are my options. 1. Stay a 4th year in undergrad. I can technically graduate in 3 years from McGill; if I do, my math background will be: 4 semesters of calc, 2 semesters of statistics, 1 semester of ODE, 1 semester of real analysis, 1 semester of linalg (plus 2 semesters of honours metrics, which I figure is basically a math course in itself; I may also be able to squeeze a math minor out of this, which would be great). Staying a 4th year would really just let me add a few more math courses and maybe take a 2nd or 3rd grad level econ course (I already will probably be taking one if I do three years). The downside is, obviously, paying for an extra year of school (which while not much by US standards is still not nothing since I'm an international student) 2. Get a masters in econ from a Canadian or English uni. Obviously I would still be paying for another year of school, but I am much more likely to get funding as a masters student (at least I know McGill gives their masters students TA positions sometimes, and I would probably be applying to McGill as one of these programs). 3. Get a masters in statistics at a Candian uni. I like this option because, at Canadian unis, math masters are usually partially or fully funded, and I really do enjoy statistics and think it would allow me to beef up my math profile at a lower cost than staying an extra year in undergrad. The only downside is I may have to go to a slightly lower-tier school for this degree, such as McMaster University or the University of Alberta, though I am hoping my connections at McGill might allow me to slide into their program as well. So tell me what you guys think. They are obviously none of them horrible options, I just have no idea which one will be best for me financially and in terms of setting me up for a good PhD admissions profile!
  4. Hi all, Well the time has come and I will be sending masters applications out shortly. I plan on applying to the top Canadian MAs, some back ups and U of T and Westerns MFE programs. Any advice on crafting statement of interest letters will be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
  5. I did Bachelors of Commerce from an Indian University. I want to do Ph.D. in economics. I want to know if I take masters from Indian Statistical Institute, Delhi School of Economics or JNU, will it help me to get in top 20 Ph.D. program? Or can you suggest any other masters?(I am not eligible for Oxford/Cambridge/LSE). Any help and recommendations will be very helpful.
  6. Hello All, I'm currently a senior undergraduate student at a top 50 university who plans on taking a year off to work before I apply to graduate school. I'm interested in first pursuing a masters program in economics ideally pursuing a PhD afterwards. I am not applying directly to a PhD program because I don't think I am competative enough as it stands. Having started as an International Affaris major I was late to start a math sequence and pushed through the courses in order to attain a BS in Economics from my institution. Now I'm uncertain if I could be competative enough for a non-terminal master program here in the U.S or the U.K. My undergraduate GPA is 3.3 as a dobule major in International Affairs and Economics. I've taken Calc I-III but performed at C level in them however am receiving an A in Linear Algebra half way into the semester. Practice GRE's are placing me consistently at a 168 Q and 163 V and this is with only about a couple weeks of studying. It looks like I will have 2 solid letters of recommendation from two economics professors at my university, one of whom is my thesis advisor who is fairly well known. I'm simply worried that my poor performance has hindered any opportunity of me getting into a solid masters program. Does anyone have any thoughts or advice on where perhaps to apply? I'm also open to retaking calc II-III to bolster my application if need be.
  7. Hey!! so this is my first post here! :) I am going to be applying to the warwick msc. econ and msc econ and international financial econ. i am really confused :(as to which is i intend to work for some years after my masters so which course will be better in terms of content and job prospects?? also which course is more reputed/renowned?? thanks :) P.S. : has anyone heard about the msc management and econ. course at lse??
  8. Hi guys, I really need some help to chose between PSE and BU Master's programs. I graduated from very top ranked engineering school in France in Mechanics. After personal readings and a one-year research experience (in mechanics) I realized I wanted to go for a PhD in Economics and work in the academic field in economics. I applied to PhDs in the US and got admitted in Boston University PhD program. But I felt I could get higher ranked PhD schools so I asked to transfer from Phd to BU MA. in Economics (which I've been authorized). BU MA is a one year program. Meanwhile I have been admitted to Paris School of Economics APE two-year Master Program. My goal is to get to top 10 US Phd schools. So I have basically two options: - attend APE Master to get decent LORs and good economic background (and mathematic background) - attend BU one-year MA and then spending one year as a RA with a professor in BU or ideally MIT or Harvard (I ok to do it whithout being paid) I just don't know if: it is commun in the US to do research with a professor whithout being enrolled anymore in an academic program of the university and if out of these two options, one would be more strategic. Besides, BU is expensive (40 000$ though I have 20 000 dollars Fulbright scholarship) and PSE is almost free. If anybody can help me I would be very thankful, I have only few days to make my decision! Thank you very much!!
  9. Hello everyone, I've been reading the forum for a while and found very interesting and helpful ideas. So I thought it might be the time that I can ask for your opinions regarding my profile: GMAT: 600. Retaking-based upon practice exams expected score of 650 Undergraduate: Accounting, GPA: 3.33, Oklahoma State Certifications: CPA full time work experience:3 years at Regional Accounting Firm as financial statement auditor. Additional Course work: Calc I, currently enrolled in Calc II, Intermediate Mirco Economics, and Graduate Statistics. Realizations: for admission into PhD programs and/or Accounting Doctoral Scholars program a GMAT score is 700+ is need based upon other resume items. Possible Alternatives: Masters Degree????? Most Acct. Masters programs are geared towards CPA certification, rather than PhD programs and already have CPA. Would a master in Economics be the most beneficial preparation for a PhD in Accounting? It seems most of the course work is interrelated for the Accounting PhD level. Thanks in advance!
