  1. Hi, I'm taking a bunch of math courses and a few econ courses before applying in fall '22 cycle. Some schools have deadlines in early December. In these instances, will they look at the courses that I take in fall semester 2022? I'm planning on taking Analysis during that semester, and want the course grade to have posted by the time they consider my application. Are those fall courses generally taken in to account by adcoms?
  2. Should I delay graduation by half a semester to take PhD Micro (among other courses)? I'm also considering just taking Honors Analysis 2 during my senior spring semester and calling it a day. Would delaying graduation be considered negatively by admissions committees? Thanks.
  3. HI, I'm a Korean undergraduate student from Top 3 Econ school in my country. I have read through lots of posts here and they all have been of tremendous help to me. Straight to the point, I am planning to take advanced calculus and differential equations next semester, but the problem is I have yet virtually no math background except mathematics for economics, college math, and general stuff like that. After conquering those courses, (hopefully) I will need to take more advanced courses like real analysis, and etc. Now, I strongly feel that I have to start digging into some math to build a solid foundation for the tough ones (in my view) coming up next semester and ahead, but I have noticed that calculus books alone were like 1,200 pages thick (e.g. James Stewart), so I'm wondering if it is a wise strategy to go through all of it. I'm not allergic to math or anything like that but I'm just curious what would be the most recommended way of building mathematical structure in my brain. I'm currently having an internship in one of the UN offices in my country so I need to spend my time wisely because I do not have a plenty of time to focus on my study. I would very much appreciate any kind of advice. Thanks :)
  4. Hello, I’m looking into applying to PhD in Economics (think about top 10) and a handful of masters (think Duke's Economics and Computation, NYU's Computational Science etc.) with a GPA of 3.85+ and (170 Q) (160+ V) (5 AWA) in GRE. I graduated from Bangladesh with a BS in Economics. I’m kind of in a pickle for this particular situation. I have numerous amount of mathematics courses in my transcript, including the calculus sequence, linear algebra, analysis, optimization and mathematical statistics and achieved A in one but all of them; the one too didn’t have that bad a grade (think A-). Analysis was offered by the Economics department and had a syllabus similar to that of the course generally taken in the first semester by Economics PhD students. I acquired an A. However, in my second to last semester, I also enrolled in one offered by the Mathematics department, but didn’t achieve that good a grade (think C) as I couldn’t attend the final exam due to illness. I chose not to retake the course and moved on. Both the course and the grade of course is showed in my transcript. Mostly the same goes for couple other courses (Intro to Finance and Intro to Physics) that I took during my earlier days of my undergrad and didn’t do good as I couldn’t attend the final exam of one, and was going through a very rough time during the other (sick mother). I retook only one of them (Physics), but only scored a B+ the following semester as I still hadn’t overcome that tough situation. My questions are how the admission committee will view this and if I should mention the problem illustrated here in my SOP (of course in a more articulate way). As my CGPA probably already reveals, I had As in most of my other courses. The grades of these three courses aren’t counted toward my CGPA since they weren’t required for the program, and I was only exploring.
  5. Please kindly give me some advice as to where I could go. Undergrad major Psychology (from a top US school) Undergrad GPA: 3.96/4.00 GRE: 335 (V170; Q165; AW6) Research: 1 B+ SSCI journal publication (CB area, equal authorship with professors); several undergoing with professors; 2.5 years' RA experience Teaching: one semester TA and tutorial instructor for a biological course working: website manager for family enterprise LOR: 3 references from cooperative professors Can I target any top 10 schools? Thanks!
  6. I want to pursue a PHD in economics, however, I received a grade of A- in my first two college math courses (advanced calc and multivariable calc) I am planning on taking linear next semester, but multi kind of kicked my butt (my class had a very difficult professor, and many of my classmates said linear was easier for them to understand than multi due to this). I go to a top 5 liberal arts school and am in my sophomore year. I get A's in all my econ courses and have some research lined up for next semester and a TA position, but I am still very worried that these two A-s may indicate that I am not good enough at math for econ grad school. Am I right to be worried?
  7. I'm applying this cycle, and have recently found out that some schools like Michigan don't even accept fall semester grades. I'm taking a common pre-requisite for PhD Econ admissions this semester (Intermediate Macro) and since the grade for the class will not be available by the application deadline, I was wondering which schools I should be aware of that don't accept fall grades. What about business chools? I would greatly appreciate any insider knowledge from people who applied in recent years. Thank you!
  8. Top 20 US state school, B.A Math and Econ Fourth year UGPA: 3.45 Working on a Mechanism Design paper Advised by a senior professor in the same field. I am mostly concerned with my LORs since I spent the beginning of my undergrad in just math. Is ~ 3 months enough time to make better connections with 2 more professors? Or should I take one extra semester and take 2 courses: 1) grad Functional Analysis and 2)grad Analysis, while getting to know more economics professors and apply for fall 2020?
  9. Going into my senior year as an Ec major, with minors in Real Estate, Mathematics, and Philosophy at a small liberal arts college, but I'm very far behind the pack in terms of math. Math classes: Freshman Year: Calc for Social Science Majors: A Applied Statistics: A Junior Year: Calculus I: A Senior Year: Calculus II: Currently Enrolled Advanced Statistics and Probability: Current enrolled Linear Algebra: Currently Enrolled And I plan on taking Calculus III, and a proof class next semester Economics classes: 3.9 overall Freshman year Global MacroEconomics: A Applied MicroEconomics: B+ Sophomore year Applied Macro: A Applied Micro: A Game theory: A Junior year Econometrics I: A Urban Economics: A Independent Study: A Economics of the European Union (study abroad): A Senior Year Econometrics II: Currently enrolled Senior seminar: Planned for next semester GPA: 3.86 / 4.0 GRE: 166Q 162V 5.5W If its worth noting I also have an A- in masters level philosophy class from my first semester sophomore year, and 1 semester of research work at a think tank house at my university (where the grade for independent study came from), and this week I will begin TAing for applied micro, and RAing for the head of our stats department. Goal: Get into a top 50 PhD program Research Interest: Behavior Economics, Price theory, Crime, Monetary Policy
  10. Hi, I'm a rising 5th year (lmao) and I'm going to apply to PhD programs this cycle. I was wondering on where you guys think I should apply, more specifically what range. Large public university, not very competitive PhD program GPA: 3.69 Major: Econ (BBA) Minor: Math GRE: 160Q (I realize this is super low; I'm retaking and I'm confident I can get around a 166). 161V, 4.5 writing Econ Coursework: Principles of Micro (B), Principles of Macro (A-), Intermediate Macro (A), Intermediate Micro (A-), Econometrics (A), Economic Theory of Networks (A), Economics Writing Seminar (semester long research paper course. A) Mathematical Economics (A-), Money and Banking (A) Math Coursework: Calc I (A), Calc II (A), Calc III (B+), Basic Concepts of Math (intro proofing & discrete math, essentially. A-), Linear Algebra (A), Probability Theory (B+). I also got a C+ in a business statistics class first semester sophomore year. it was a bad time in my life (classic excuse) but I wonder how much that will affect my chances. All of my grades were trash that semester, but I've been doing a lot better since. Courses I'm taking this semester (the semester in which I'll apply): Advanced Calc (real analysis, essentially), Differential Equations I, and a Graduate Econometrics course (PhD level). Research Experience: Very little. I was an RA for a summer with a poli sci professor, kinda just did lit review and data entry, some basic STATA stuff too. I also wrote my "senior thesis" for that writing seminar class. I was, however, nominated by my prof to present at my school's undergraduate research forum. I have a basic knowledge of Python, R and Stata. My undergrad metrics class used Eviews but I don't even think that's relevant. Letters: I'm prob gonna ask my Intermediate Macro & Money and Banking prof (both As). He knows me decently well and I was a very good student in his classes. He's also a really good, productive, younger economist. I'm also going to ask my Networks (A) and Math Econ prof (A-). I did an honors module for him and I think he will write a good letter. Lastly, I think I'll get one from my senior writing seminar professor who nominated me to present my research. Overall I think I will have decent letters, not great though. Any ideas on where I should apply? I'm thinking like 40s-60s range? I am interested in labor and health. My reaches are University of Washington and USC. My "fits" are Georgia, Kentucky, ND, Georgetown, UC Boulder...
  11. Hi, I would like to know how my chances are for RA positions at US institutions (SIEPR, NBER, etc). Note that I'm graduating a semester early, and I'll be applying to most of these positions next semester. School: Top20-25 Econ Phd (private) Major: Econ and Math double GPA: 3.66 (expected to be 3.70 after the next semester), Econ: 3.73, Math: 3.72 (hopefully will go up after next semester) Econ courses: Intermediate Micro (A), Intermediate Macro (A), Econometrics (B, B), Market Design (B), Advanced Macro elective I (A), Advanced Macro elective (A); will take grad-level Microeconomics, Econometrics, and Macroeconomics next semester Math courses: Calc I-III (A, A, A), Multivariate (A), Intro to Proof ©, Matrix Algebra (B), Discrete Math (B), Operations Research (B), Differential Equations (A), (Proof-based) Linear Algebra (A), Real Analysis I and II (A, A), Abstract Algebra (A), Mathematical Probability (A), Topology (A), will take: Partial Differential Equations, Numerical Methods next semester. (any suggestions on which math electives to take over these?) Research Experience: currently working on honors thesis with a Econ professor / RA for an Econ professor (6 months, plan on continuing until end of next semester)/ RA for a statistics professor (1 year) / RA for another Econ professor (summer), attended several undergraduate research conferences Notes/Concerns: 1. Grades: I've struggled a lot but managed to pull my math grades up; the past two semesters, I had 4.0, and hopefully I can keep the trend for next semester as well. Hopefully my overall GPA long with my econ and math GPA will go up as well after next semester, but would it make a huge difference if I apply after my next semester's grades are out (assuming they're good) since my GPAs will go up (especially since I'm taking grad-level econ courses next semester)? 2. I have a W on my transcript for a math elective (retook it later and got an A) I would like to aim for (popular) RA positions with well-known researchers who are also known to place their students pretty well, and any thoughts based on my profile so far will be greatly appreciated! :)
