  1. 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.
  2. Hi, I am considering applying for PhD in OB for Fall 2021. I am looking for advice on whether my profile needs some work and which schools might be feasible options. Test Scores (GRE): verbal 165 (96%); quant 169 (96%) writing:4.5 Undegrad GPA: 3.85 Graduate GPA: 3.97 Research Experience: 1. MA thesis on social networks during org changes 2. Pre-doc at a Top 10 business school researching on corporate culture using statistical and machine learning methods Teaching Experience: NA Work Experience: 3 years at a global financial technology firm as a strategy analyst Concentration Applying to: Organizational Behavior (MACRO) Number of programs planned to apply to: 9-12 Dream Schools: MIT, HBS, INSEAD, Kellogg Questions: What made you want to pursue a PhD? Would like to continue exploring the questions regarding networks and uncertainties inside corporations using innovative methods. Questions or concerns you have about your profile? 1. My MA thesis used qualitative method (interview+survey), would it be ok to use it as my writing sample? I have background in economics and big data analysis. Just wasn't sure if the committee may view the writing sample as ill-fit for the types of research I plan to do there (mixed-method). 2. How to differentiate myself with my training in qualitative methods from the applicant pool with most people with strong quant background?
  3. Hi, So, there are a number of RA positions/pre-doctoral fellowships that require a writing sample to apply. However, some of these requests ask for samples restricted in length (e.g.
  4. Hello community, I've been applying to phd programs and just realized that some schools provide an opportunity to upload a writing sample (optional) on their online application but other schools don't even ask for it nor do they offer an opportunity to upload one. I've been uploading my writing sample only if there is a place to attach it. However, I just realized it would help if I could upload it to school online apps that don't offer a place to attach it as a file.... Wouldn't it help to give a writing sample to the committee (if its good) regardless? Would I be at a disadvantage if I don't upload it to a school that doesn't ask for one? For those schools that don't provide a place to upload it, what should I do? Should I attach my writing sample to the end of my SOP and upload the entire file in the SOP uploading section? Or email the phd program or grad admissions if I can have them attach my writing sample manually? Advice would be much appreciated!!!
  5. 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!!
  6. Hello, I am applying to PhD program in Finance at Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville. However, I cannot submit my application because they require a "Computer program". I dont even have any ideas on what it is? This is what they ask:" Attach a sample of computer program that you have written, and list the class of job for which the program was written." I haven't written any computer program. What should I do? I have asked the department, but they are unlikely to reply before the deadline of Jan 1st. Could I submit my writing sample (my masters thesis) instead? Does anyone have an idea on this case? Thanks a lot,
  7. Hello guys, I was wondering if anyone could help me with this 'writing sample' that I have to submit at a few universities. It is crucial for me as it might help in establishing my Econ research abilities since I am from a Math background. I have the following questions- 1. Is it a good idea to submit parts of the MS thesis project as a writing sample? 2. What should be the length of my writing sample? While some universities 'recommend' 2-7 pages, others ask for minimum 15 pages. 3. If you're building something on old concepts, is it okay to skip details about those? In other words, to maintain the brevity of the write-up can we omit trivial (and not so trivial) details that can either be found in the literature or understood if stressed up a little? Thank you very much for reading this. It would be great if you could provide any insights on these issues. :)
  8. Hi all! I'm preparing writing sample for my applications right now. The only thing I currently have is a short (5 pages single spaced) assignment. I see that the top programs have very specific page limits on their require writing samples (Harvard 15+ pages, Chicago 15-20, etc.). Does anyone know if submitting a short writing sample would be a bad idea? Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi guys.I'm applying for Accounting programs. I have went down the BYU list of probably 100 schools. I didn't notice any school require a writing sample. Some schools (not a large percentage though) mentioned writing samples as an optional material. Others don't even mention it. Therefore, I wonder how much does writing samples matter? Have any past successful applicants in this forum submitted a writing sample in this forum? Thanks a lot.
