Hi all, This isn't really related to admissions into PhD but rather to research/data cleaning, as a person working as an RA. Is it weird to go back to refining the sample construction, once you've made much progress into the project? I've done this a few times so far -- I work with very extensive raw datasets with lots of variables, and when I find ways to drop/keep observations more accurately, I go back to sample construction, fix and run the codes again, and run the analyses again. The results I have are already very strong and robust that the takeaways and implications never change. I'm just worried that me doing this would make my professors frown upon me.
I have a very minor question regarding on TSE. I am keen on studying at TSE but I do not speak French. :( Does TSE run its Master 2 Economic Theory and Econometrics, and the following years for Doctoral course in English? It does seems to run its Doctoral Course in English by looking at there website, but I just want to double check if it is correct. Has anyone had experience studying at TSE for M2 (or PHD) without much of French? If so, was it manageable living there?
Admitted to a top 20-30 finance phd program but feel underplaced. Now I am coauthoring a paper with a senior professor and considering turning down my accepted offer and re-applying this December. I know it's not right but I think I should do what is good for me in the long run. I haven't talked with my referees so I am not sure whether they are willing to write a letter for me if I renege my offer. If you were me, what would you do? Any suggestions and thoughts will be appreciated. BTW I hope to enter top 15 program. Has anybody turned down their accepted offer and re-applied? Need your advice.
