limeade posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsI need some help deciding on who will write my LORs for my application cycle this fall. LOR 1: My master's program research project advisor and have taken an UG and grad class from her, and done well. LOR 2: My grad chair who taught a grad class I did well in. LOR 3: This is the tough one. I'm really leaning towards Option 2, but I've known Option 1 for a long-time and he was going to be my advisor, but due to his inability to commit I went with LOR 1 writer as my advisor. - Option 1: The professor who I thought I was going to get to RA with but ends up I cannot, and he is very distant from academic commitments in general, like helping supervise independent research and replying to emails. He is semi-respected though, as a micro-theorist, but probably not that well known. I have known him since 2010 and have been emailing and discussing research with him, even in person, since then, but he tends to always want to drop any long-term efforts. He has some idea of the kind of research I enjoy, but I'm not so sure he would want to put those ideas into writing on my LOR. I took grad micro from him and did well. - Option 2: The professor I now TA for, who also has appointments at Columbia and NYU as an adjunct professor. He has nominated me for TA of the Year and thinks pretty highly of my TA work, coming up with my own initiatives to help the 133 students improve their grades and maximize their learning. This semester is the first time I've met this professor. I have emailed him before about a now defunct research proposal I had and he gave me some pointers and said it was a good idea. Have never taken any of his classes. Would there be any reason to choose Option 1 for LOR 3?
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?

How many referees?
LJS posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHello everyone, Does anyone have any advice about whether or not it's a good idea to add a 4th referee for the universities that give you the option? I know that Duke recommends that you don't unless you really feel it's necessary which is fair enough, but others like Chicago, Cornell and Brown give you the option of adding up to 5 referees and don't seem to recommend against it. Is it likely to be an advantage to provide 4 referees for schools like Chicago etc, or is it definitely better to stick to 3 for all of them? Many thanks.

Gap year ideas
sudo8 posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHey yall, I'm looking for suggestions on what to do in case my waitlists/pendings are all rejections. I have some RA applications pending, but I'm finding that at this point most positions are filled so it's not very likely for me to get one of those (still trying though!). MA programs also aren't really an option. Thanks :encouragement:
