  1. hello, im a foreign pharmacy graduate. im currently living in pakistan, having done my graduation in the course pharm D this year.actually im planning to move to pensylvania this year.i would like to know the requirements of practising as a licensed pharmacist in PA as well as the eligibility criteria to be able to apply in the pharmacy residency programs in PA. i believe i would have to take the licensing exams including NAPLEX,MPJE,FPGEE and TOEFL?...is that all?which one should be taken first and where shall i begin my preparation from?any books suggested? To be approved to take these tests, PA requires 1500 intern hours that are documented and signed off by a pharmacist.where should these intern hours be completed and what do i have to do before starting such an internship? Besides will i still have to take all these licensing tests even if i go for some masters program-say masters in pharmacology for an example- or i could start right away with a foreign state pharm D degree? being a foreign graduate i have absolutely no idea about working as a pharmacist in the US.plz help me out im really confused! thanku
  2. Background: Apps are out, so I want to focus on preparing myself for the the first year of Econ programs, rather than stressing about which one I may or may not get into. For reference, I have been out of school for a couple of years working an industry job, and haven't had the opportunity to do much actual math since leaving undergrad. I'm worried that I will be behind at the start of programs if I don't refresh my math knowledge over the coming 7-8 months, even with a pre-program "boot camp". Let's assume for exposition that I have forgotten essentially everything Math and Statistics-related, including even some topics from single-variable Calculus. Some topics require only quick review, others more extensive (e.g. I spent 30 minutes today remembering how to do implicit differentiation and getting myself back to "exam ready" for that topic, but probably would want a few weeks to go back through my Real Analysis course). My current plan is to spend a small amount of time reviewing basic (single- and multi-variable) calculus, then moving on to a fuller review of more complex topics (bounded optimization, Rudin, ODE, etc.). Questions for the forum: What Math and Stat topics should I focus most on to prepare myself for the first year of Econ PhD? How would you go about self-studying to "get back up to speed" on the topics from 1? What are your favorite textbooks? Post textbooks or online resources to check out (e.g. Khan Academy), study strategies, etc. For Prob/Stats specifically, what is most important to review? I've been "reg monkeying" for 2+ years, so I'm confident on a lot of Metrics stuff, but have forgotten/grown rusty with more basic topics (I'm sure I would not do well on a "Combinations and Permutations" test, for example). Please also feel free to riff off of these questions however you wish. Any advice is highly appreciated! Thanks for any and all help, and best wishes for a stress-free application season! - Tenuki

  5. Hello everyone! This is my first post here. I'll be starting a PhD this fall in OB. I do not have much of a business or stats background so I'm wondering if there are things I should be doing over the summer to prepare. For example, learning a programming language, studying statistics of some sort, reading certain papers or text, etc. I'll definitely be bringing this up with my advisor but I would love to hear from you about what your experience has been like starting the first year "from scratch". Were there things that you wish you had prepared in advance to feel less like you were completely out of place in the business school?

  12. Hello! Im applying to economics masters programs in the next few months and I'm curious to see how prepared I am for an advanced degree in econ? I've taken the following courses: Introductory/intermediate/advanced micro & macro (intermediate and advanced courses covered what you would expect, but very quant-intensive) Statistics I, II, and III for economists (covering everything from basic probability concepts, to regressions with time series data, to simultaneous equations and two-stage least squares etc etc.) Mathematical Economics I & II (covering univariate, multivariate calculus, Khun-Tucker, integration, linear algebra, static and dynamic optimization [diff eq] with economic applications) Advanced Mathematics for Economists (PDEq, topology, dynamic optimization) Calculus I & II Applied Econometrics (maximum likelihood, constructing price indices, estimation and forecasting with univariate time series processes etc.) Econometrics I (the simple and multiple classical regression models, problems of mis-specified structures, multi-collinearity, and forecasting etc...lots of proofs). What are your thoughts? I know the information I provided is a little sparse, but does it look like I am prepared for an advanced degree in economics? And bonus question...answer if you want..what sorts of schools am I a competitive applicant for given that I received A's in all of these courses and scored a 163 on the GRE quant? Thank you!
  13. 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)?
  14. Hi! I'm hoping to get some recommendation about preparing for Econ PhD as a Non-Econ Undergraduate. I'm currently double majoring in Math and Business in Top School in South Korea (Top in Korea but not sure about its international reputation). In business, I mostly took finance courses and in economics, I took Principles of economics, Micro, Macro, Stat for Economics, International Finance. I've got 2 or 3 remaining semesters till the graduation. So my questions are: 1) For remaining semesters what economic courses do you recommend me to take? 2) Considering the circumstances of Universities in Korea, its hard to get strong recommendations as an undergraduate. So I'm actually thinking about first applying for masters in econ in USA schools. Would it help? Or are there better alternatives?
  15. Hey Guys, I recommend you try out GLOBAL-EXAM. I found they had an abundance of resources to practice with!! I was able to use their 'training mode' option to practice exercises but also compare results. As well as that, they have 'Exam mode' where it's possible to practice exams. Flashcards are available for free also. Hope it helps, Message back if it helped or you have your own resources you would like to share! Jack
  16. Hello Urch members, Iam Bhanu Prakash from India, i would love to partner with someone to start my prep for GRE. I would like to give my test in 2 months, So if any one is interested in GRE preparation with a partner do comment below or message me :) Thanks
  17. Hello everyone, I've begun preparing for GRE since mid January (with an unexpected one-month break in February :upset: ). I'd like to give my GRE by the end of April (and it's the fourth of April and I'm still scared to book the test date!). I think prep wise I'm being sincere. I've made considerable improvement in my Quant section and Verbal section. I put in an hour or two's effort everyday (since I'm working at a job which requires me to also spend two hours on commute). I seem to have plateaued in terms of progress. I'm aiming for a good GRE score (around 310+) but now I'm not really sure if I can reach that target. There are days where I do very well with practice questions and then there are days where I do horribly (like today for instance, I got every question on every RC incorrect). This demotivates me and it's hard to keep myself positive on days like this and I feel like a failure. Because of this I also feel like putting off taking mocks. Has anyone ever been in a place like this before or am I being too unrealistic? How do you suggest I deal with this? I've started doubting my self-worth, wondering if my English is really that bad that I can't correctly get the primary purpose of a passage? I do not even know how to asses my readiness for the GRE, or how much I COULD score, anything!
  18. Hello! I am looking to gain some insight for how to best prepare for a MS/PhD in Economics (my area of interest is resource and environmental economic). I am currently finishing my degree in an unrelated field. After talking to a few professors at my school I have developed a plan to prepare for a a Phd program (however I would consider doing an MS first, if thats recommended). I would be grateful for any feedback on my plan you could provide me with? Planning to Take Math Prep: Multivariable Calc, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations, and Real Analysis Econ Prep: Labor Economics, Advanced Topics in Development and International Trade, International Trade, Resource Economics Have Taken Econometrics (Sadly I took it pass/no pass, because I was not planing on pursuing econ) Micro (A) Macro (A) Climate Change Econ (A-) Intonation Finance (A) Stats (A-) Pol Econ Theory (classical and modern, both A) Info about my school Top tier big name school with very strong Econ and Math departments A few specific questions What are some programs that might be appropriate for me? Can I take some of the math outside my very competitive school, or will that reflect poorly? Are there any additional math classes I should take? Any other advice? Thank you!
  19. Not all Economics PhD applicants need to go through this, but some most certainly need to make a transition. I have been out of school for almost three years... and need to brush up on math. In my case, just a two-~three-week math camp won't bring back the good old analysis topics... just being honest here. That said, I am thinking mid-march. Also, I would like to visit family, travel around if I can, before getting dominated by math boot camp of my own... Any thoughts on this or feel free share your case?
  20. How would you rank these statistics electives in terms of preparation for an Economics PhD program? What about for an industry career (just in case I'm not accepted)? Multilevel Modeling Time Series Analysis Generalized Linear Models Nonparametric Statistics Survival Analysis Elementary Stochastic Processes
  21. Is it sufficient to read from the Comprehensive Pharmacy Review as the fundmental source to prepare for FPGEE, or it's better to read The APhA Complete Review for the FPGEE instead? My problem is that the first one is available here in my country with the Practical Exams, while the APhA review is not. Any help would be appreciated... good luck, George
  22. Friends, I managed 1400 only. I only prepared for a month seriously.There are few very interesting things that I want to share with you you. First and foremost, my test did not go at all as well as I would have liked to.I was nervous and at the same time casual when I entered into the center.First the administrator told me to sign in some documents and guess what ! she pointed out that my signature is not matching with the one in my passport!!!!:eek: I tried nervously again only to manage a reluctant nod from the administrator. The test started in a deceptively friendly manner with easy issue and argument questions.Easy in the sense that, I could at least have some opinion about the topic unlike some of the other very abstract topics and specially politically flavoured ones since I can hardly write a line about politics. I moved on.Then came the verbal section and here came my first surprise.Guys I dont know about you, but I found the verbal sections in almost all the preparation books like Barron, Kaplan decently laid out and sample tests those came with the books had moderate difficulty if not very difficult. Compared to these standards the verbal section was very very easy!Well that is not reflected in my score because I am weak in reading comprehension as I take too much time to read and understand the contents.Also unlike popular suggestions I read the passage totally first time,without skipping any portion because I am comfortable with that approach.Anyway,the point is the antonym and the sentence completion questions were tremendously easy!!(thank God it was that way:D)It took 1-2 seconds for me to answer them each and I am not a native speaker of english, not had english as my first language ever,not an avid reader,not a literature student and my only defense was barrons wordlist. All the words except one was from barrons in the antonym and analogy sections.Where I was let down is in the RC section.There was 3 RC's with two of them almost back to back towards the end.I have reda in this forum that an early RC is not a good thing and thankfully didnt get one. The first 5 questions are very very crucial as you already know.Its really really important that you get your first 5 questions correct which I did because all them were either antonym or sentence completion(what a relief:D).In all the mock tests that I gave the ones with low score had a RC in the first 5 questions.So my verbal could have been worse...... I was feeling confident by this time because I knew certainly that my first 6-7 questions were absolutely correct and moved on to the next section which was quants. To give you an example,I took 5 800score tests.In one of them I got 740 with 4 incorrect and In the other one I managed 800 with 4 incorrect,i.e. same as the previous one!! The difference was I got first 7-8 questions correct in the second one and got 1 incorrect in the first five in the first test.So, keeping this in mind I moved very very cautiously perhaps a little more than was required.And then came the second surprise.Now,I know every one of us has different opinion about the difficulty level of a math problem.Some hates tricky problems,others hate lot of calculations and there are other things as well.The problems which I got were difficult in the sense that they required a lot of time for intricate calculations and process of elimination simply wont work.The wordings of the problems were juxtaposed in a way to intentionally confuse the reader However it didnt require difficult and abstract math concepts.In one problem that particularly irritated me ,the information given in form of an equation was unnecessarily repeated in words(in lot of words actually:mad:)For example If I tell you x=y+5 and then tell you a story about x and how he jumps,plays,eats and then give you one more boring description of perhaps y's latest electronic gazettes and finally telly you y is 5 years younger than x its bound to irritate you.Apart from the time it took it confused me. Anyway, I again made sure I got first 6-7 questions absolutely right and increasingly lagged behind the time.There wasn't a single problem in the first half of the exam which was straightforward and of the form I was familiar with (I studied NOVA's quants thoroughly as they are the best in quants, and also Kaplan and barrons math section).DI's were relatively easy and there were two of them one towards the fag end.I marched very fast as had only 2 ,minutes for the last 4 questions but used up all those time for the q no 25 with 3 left unanswered.Even in q no. 25 although I marked one option I was not sure so I was still thinking and could not click next when time went out.To my surprise The test was kind enough(I must be joking!) to ask me if it could take that as my answer and I said yes please and prayed it would correct. O, by the way ,to catch up with time I made two educated guesses in two problems whose calculation was very lengthy.So in all I had 3 problems unanswered and two guess and god knows what about the rest.So ......:hmm:tell me how I should have felt that time?It was complete despair,frustration,rage and depression.I was almost certain to take it again next month and almost ended up canceling my scores.But then gave it a shot and voila! I saw Verbal 640,Quants 760 !!!! it was unbelievable for me.I had set 1450 as my target.So this is not bad.In fact after the disaster it was a blessing from god.I guess my "first 5 correct" strategy worked.I dont know where does this 1400 fit,as I frequently see 1500+ scores in this forum. Thanks for numerous posts in this forum and sharing your experiences.I really got a lot of useful information from them.And all of you preparing for the GRE, my best wishes for you,and keep in mind get first 5 absolutely correct,then it wont hurt much if it goes wrong later. Best of luck and cheers to all:tup:
  23. Hi guys, I was searching for some book to help me with my struggling preparation for "GRE Subject test" and found this ARCO GRE Computer Science By Stephen S. Ben-AVI, YUSUF EFE (Amazon.com: Gre in Computer Science (9780133635652): EFE/BEN AV: Books) on Amazon. I got this book today from Amazon to find it too easy!!! I am sure that I am not that well prepared to feel it easy but I felt the whole material itself to be below par in terms of difficulty!!! (Are the authors trying to push up our confidence and morale? :whistle:) Anyone used this book? Any comments? I feel like wasting $16.93!!! :mad: OK, and in general what all material do you guys use apart from (excluding text books). 1) GATE material 2) MCQs in Computer Science (found in CalmLogic's signature). How are Schuam Series? I have not tried them yet. :rolleyes: I know that that its important for us to solve more and more questions instead of Hours of just theory, but where do you find more problems. Regards, Microkernel
  24. Hi, Would be great if people can answer my queries after looking at my profile PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: Electrical Engineering Undergrad GPA: 7.7/10 Type of Grad: MBA (Finance Major) Grad GPA: 3.1/4.33 GRE: 800Q, 710V, 4.5AW Math Courses: (Undergrad level) Calculus ©, Vector Calculus & Matrices (D), Complex Analysis (D), Probability and Stochastic Processes © Econ Courses: (Undergrad level in MBA) : Microeconomics (A+), Macroeconomics (B+), (Grad Level in MBA) : Econometrics (B), Game Theory(B+), another topical course (B+) . Other Courses: About 7-8 as Finance major in MBA Letters of Recommendation: Three economics professors who taught me in MBA. I don't expect them to be known, but they would have a good word to say. Research Experience: Undergrad thesis Teaching Experience: None Research Interests: Development, IO, Game Theory, Macro Policy Queries: Terrible grades in Undergrad Math: I know I could've done much much better but I simply made no effort. Is there anything I can do now to make up for it and show I can deal with advanced math? Would a Diploma for Graduates in Mathematics offered by LSE through the external study program help? Would it be enough? Is there any other similar distance learning program for post graduate level maths from a reputed university? Diploma for Graduates in Mathematics - University of London - LSE - External System - Structure and Syllabus Weak CGPA in MBA: But this was in courses irrelevant to Economics (Strat, Marketing, HR etc.) Will it be held against me? Another full-time Masters?: I'm desperate for top 25 econ phd program. For that, I'm willing to give up to two years of full-time preparation if needed. Do you think I should go and get a full-time degree in Economics (Math?) (M.Phil from a top school in India?) There would be huge opportunity cost in monetary terms and I will do it only if it is necessary for a realistic chance at a top 25 econ phd. I'm currently working as an Analyst for a major US Bank. I use statistical tools and econometric techniques to analyze large customer databases and make business recommendations. Is this experience going to be helpful in my application? Will spending a year or two as an RA at some Economics research institution in India help? How does it compare with a full-time degree in Economics? Overall, I think my profile vastly under represents my ability as I think I was doing the wrong things (MBA) with no clear direction or motivation. Now I'm willing to do whatever is required to get where I think I should end up. Any help & advice would be greatly appreciated!
