  1. Hi everyone! I am applying this year intake for PhD Economics. In my SOP I have cited a couple of paper as my inspiration/motivation; shall I make a reference list at the end of my SOP? or I skip it since it increases number of pages ? Thank you !
  2. Hi you all! I'm applying this cycle and have a couple of questions regarding the writing sample: 1) Is it frowned upon to send a co-authored writing sample? I wrote an M.A. thesis that later developed into a joint paper with my former advisor. I could send the "thesis version" which is entirely written by me, but it's notoriously less polished and has just the main results so in terms of quality it would be clearly better to send the working paper version (though I should say we haven't released it publicly yet, as it still needs more work). Among the ~15 programs I'm applying to, only one states explicitly that the WS should be solo-authored. 2) Should I send the WS to programs in which it is optional to do so? Specially if it's better not to send the coauthored version, I'm not particularly proud of my thesis to be honest. It's a reasonably well written piece but the results are not really groundbreaking whatsoever (it's a theory paper btw). If it helps, I have a strong profile and should be aiming at the top 10 with a reasonable chance at the top 5 (on a regular year, at least, no idea how things will work out with covid and all). Thanks in advance!
  3. All, So, I was having preliminary talks with my supervisor prior to joining and she said that they do the "three paper system." Meaning three publishable papers as opposed to a monograph. I'm interested in getting more information on what this entails, opinions, etc. At first glance it seems great because, rather than writing a monograph alongside publishable papers, we get straight to the point. Would just like to know pros/cons/perceptions, etc.
  4. Hey guys. I am going to apply for Econ/Finance PhD for 2021 Fall PhD program. Just wondering if you guys can give me any advice on that please? Many Thanks! So here is my profie: Undergrad: 3% ranking in top 3 Chinese University. Grad course: got full A in PhD level micro, macro, metric series and mathematical economics in a top20 US university. GRE: V161 Q170 W3.5 TOEFL: 111, S26, L30, R30, W25 Research: I have an NBER paper on monetary policy. The paper is coauthered with a professor from a top 10 econ department. I am also working on a new paper which I intend to use as my writing sample. I have been RA for another professor in top 10 department for 6 months. RL: I can ensure two strong letters, one from my coauthor in top 10 US econ department, the other from my undergrad supervisor. I am still seeking for my third letter. Is there any possibility for me to be accepted by a top 10 Business school or Econ department in the US? And would COVID-19 make the application for 2021 fall PhD extremely hard? Many thanks to your advice!
  5. Hello, I have heard from a friend that she was invited to interview with one of her applied schools and the professor sent her an article and told her that they will chat about it. In your experience, what type of questions do professors can ask during the interview on the assigned paper? Is it like a critique, like "what do you think are the strengths and weaknesses of this paper?" P.S. The field is Organizational Behavior. Best,
  6. Hi everyone, I am preparing for PhD admission in economics this coming fall. While I was considering which term paper to submit as my writing sample, I realized one problem. Since I read somewhere that the admission committee would use tools like Turnitin to detect plagiarism, and in my university, almost every course requires us to submit the term paper to Turnitin for checking. So if I submit one of these term papers, it would, of course, give a high similarity, but does the committee know it is because "self-plagiarism"?? Many thanks!!
  7. Hi guys, My paper has been accepted by EEA and will be presented there next month (co-authored with two professors and I am not the presenter). I still have a couple schools that I haven't submitted my application for. Would it be worth it to write that the paper has been accepted by the conference on my CV? How is the EEA conference viewed in terms of quality and reputation? Thank you for your inputs.
  8. I have an idea for a health economics paper that I want to start drafting, but won't start my MA program until next Fall (4 years out of undergrad already, in the work force now), so I can't really get much serious guidance on the nuts and bolts of getting started with my paper ideas. What are the most common ways to obtain health economics data? What websites, databases, etc., and I also would love tips on how to work through my first paper in the proper stages of research and writing. It'd be a tremendous help if anyone could offer their insights.

  10. I was wondering if it is fine to send co-authored paper exerpts for writing samples? I will be only have a working solo paper (thesis) by the spring but ideally don't want to skip the fall job listings. Thanks.
  11. Hi all, I am an applied math and econ major in an Ivy-League school and I am thinking of applying to phd programs in econ this fall. So far I have had three professors agreeing to write me recommendation letters (one I RAed for, one supervised my independent study and one I took seminar and wrote a term paper) and I had good relationships with all of them. The issue is, all of my three recommenders are young assistant professors. Should I try to have a more senior professor as my recommender? (If I do so, the letter from the senior professor may not be very strong, I only took his class and wrote a final paper). And in general, how is a strong letter from a young AP compared to a semi-strong letter from a tenured professor? Thanks.
  12. PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: Top 3 Korean University in Econ Undergrad GPA: 3.57 Type of Grad: Top 3 Korean University in Econ Grad GPA: ~ 3.72 GRE: 155V; 170Q; 3.5W TOEFL: 98 Math Courses: Undergrad: Frst Year Calculus B, Linear Algebra C+, Real Analysis (B+) Linear Algebra (A+) Econ Courses: Grad: Macro I (A), Macro II (A) Macro I (B+) Macro II (A) Econometrics (B+) Time Series Analysis (A) Panel data Analysis (A) International Economics (A) Development (A) Industrial Organization (A) Labor economics (A) Letters of Recommendation: 1) my advisor in MS degree. I am working for R.A and T.A for him. 2) Now, I'm writing two papers about international economy with professor in U.S.(Top 30 tenure) I will ask for a recommendation letters. Paper: I have one published paper on tourism management (SSCI), and I got revision to another paper (SSCI) Teaching Experience: NA Research Interests: International economics, Development Other: Concerns: 1. I know my math grade is really bad to get admission from Top 20 or 30. So I will apply for the course from over top 30 (from top 30 to 60) Is this still too high? 2. I have a published paper on Tourism management (SSCI) And I'm also working a paper and got revision from journal. I wonder this published paper will help me get admission.
  13. As suggested by tm_member I'll post my profile and schools. In April I'll tell you guys how I did. PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: Economics, Top Colombian University (Javeriana) (500 globally) Undergrad GPA: 3.46/4.00 Type of Grad: M.A. in Economics, Javeriana Grad GPA: 3.91/4.00 GRE: Q: 167 V: 161 AWA:3 Math Courses: -Real Analysis (A) As a grad I took some analysis to compensate for my poor math grades as an undergrad -I got C's in 4 math undergrad courses -I got A's in 2 undergrad courses Econ Courses (grad-level): I got A's in all of my grad econ courses. Econ Courses (undergrad-level): I got A's in all of my undergrad econ courses. Other Courses: I didn't include other coursework on my applications. Letters of Recommendation: Economics Dean at my University (Ph.D. from Brown) Economics Professor at my University (Ph.D. from NYU) Researcher at the Central Bank (Ph.D. from Cornell)) Research Experience: Solo paper in Economics Systems (JCR 1.2 Impact Factor) Co-authored paper in International Finance (JCR 1.2 Impact Factor) Co-authored paper in Economics Systems (JCR 0.6 Impact Factor) Co-authored paper in a Scopus Journal Co-authored paper in a national journal One working paper One co-authored book chapter Teaching Experience: None Research Interests: Monetary Policy, Finance, Macroeconomics SOP: I write to express my interest in pursuing an Economics Ph.D. at X. This is a necessary step to accomplish my long-term objective of producing first-rate economic research. I am particularly interested in the intersection of the fields of finance and monetary policy. My drive to start studying economics came from two sources. The first was curiosity since my family was deeply affected by a financial crisis. This sparked a desire to understand economic forces, their social implications, and how to alleviate their woes. The second relates to my interest in learning mathematics. I attended X, an experimental school for high IQ students. Unfortunately, the coursework had little emphasis on formal math, which I wanted to explore further due to my affinity for quantitative analysis. Thus, undergraduate studies in economics were the perfect opportunity to explore these topics. I enrolled at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana (recently ranked 1st in Colombia) to obtain a B.A in Economics. After initially struggling, I was able to adjust and later excel. This can be noticed in the trend of my GPA which jumped from the equivalent of an American 3.46 as an undergraduate to a 3.91 during my master’s. I was given high honors on the graduation ceremony, obtaining a medal for occupying the first place in my batch. These efforts paid back when I gained a highly competitive internship, and a subsequent full-time job, at the Central Bank of Colombia. This gave me the opportunity to get involved in rigorous research. I stepped up quickly from research assistant to being a coauthor in various research projects. I have also engaged in independent research that has been published in Economic Systems, a JCR journal with a 1.2 impact factor. However, in order to continue advancing my career, I must further improve my knowledge, aiming to dedicate fully to economic inquiry. Given the rigor and excellence that X commands over the field, it would be the ideal place to enable me to follow this path. I am confident I can succeed at this program. I have worked intensely to prepare myself for the burdens that doctoral studies require, especially regarding mathematical coursework. I earned a score equivalent to an American A grade in a real analysis course, which followed Rudin (1953) and Bartle and Sherbert (1982). As I mentioned above, my interests lie in the fields of finance and monetary policy. During my time at the Central Bank, I was involved in advising the Board of Governors on several key policy issues, which often required serious research. Being immersed in the policy process represented an important advantage, as it was the opportunity to get to know where the academic literature fails to answer policy-makers’ questions. My work can be summarized as an analysis of the dynamic interaction between financial and macroeconomic variables. As you can see from my attached CV, I have worked in understanding how credit behavior can signal the buildup of imbalances that can result in costly financial crises. In particular, I investigated the relationship between loan growth and banks’ risky behavior. This led to an analysis of the interdependence of credit and business cycles. One strand of my work focused on the implications of failing to account for the financial cycle in potential output estimates. This failure can result in prolonged monetary policy easing periods, which down the line can explain housing bubble durations. I believe my research would benefit immensely from X's faculty knowledge and experience. For instance…. Recently I have been working on studying the effects of excessively loose monetary policy on bubble duration, in a paper which was granted a revise and resubmit status by International Finance. I am excited about the possibility of further advancing these ideas academically, hopefully with support and guidance from these distinguished professors. Finally, I want to highlight that I am confident of my adequacy for this program and that my commitment to academic research will provide me the necessary drive to succeed. Thank you for reviewing my application. I look forward to hearing from you.

  14. Hi guys, I have been reached out by a full professor in a Top 10/15 program. He is a professor I have mentioned in my SOP. He had a look at my writing sample ( a solo-authored paper just got accepted by AIB, with no supervision) and directly told me he would be very happy to work with me. He also introduced another professor to me since he will be retiring next year. An interesting thing is the one who has been introduced is the track chair of my AMA competitive paper. I am an applicant for their marketing program this year. But I assume that the senior professor not on the admission committee(because of his age)? Do you guys think I need to update this information to the program coordinator? Thanks for your help in advance! P.S. In another post, somebody asked me whether they know my GRE score. They all know. For Wharton, I understand Q169+V156 is below their average:(.... For this school, they have an average of V158, Q166. I thought 2 points lower than the average V won't result in a direct rejection.....?
  15. How is your experience publishing SCI or SSCI paper? For any topic.
  16. Hi everyone, I've checked all of the old topics and even used Google & other websites to find the paper by using those link's related keywords. However, nothing worked... Do any of you have the paper, or knows someone who does, by any chance? I'd deeply appreciate any help :orange:
