About Me


My Target Scores

  1. What are people's opinions on business economics versus economics for someone with theory interests? So what's the verdict on urch? How would these programs stack up? (Redacted.)
  2. If you could sort the following into Top-10/20/30/50/etc, how would you do so? USC UCLA Stanford Berkeley UCSD UCSB UC Davis UC Irvine Rice Virginia UT-Austin Texas A&M Duke UNC
  3. Posting for a friend who's not on this forum. He's choosing between HBS, MIT, Princeton and Stanford. Interested broadly in behavioral/experimental/micro theory - not really committed to any field but that's the neighborhood. How would you rank the choices and why?
  4. Just a quick question: For those who pursue behavioral marketing, which schools are the strongest ones? Northwestern or Stanford? How about Duke or UPenn? Thanks!
  5. Has anyone here looked at or applied to Stanford's GSB Research Fellows program? It's a two-year program with a full stipend where you're not a graduate student, but you take graduate classes and do research with mentors and stuff. I applied to it as well as some economics PhD programs (I have already gotten into one with funding) Stanford said they will let everyone know their acceptances by April 6th which would give me enough time to make a decision. I went to a pretty average undergrad and didn't apply to any top 10 because I knew that I would not be competitive. If I were to do this program, I would definitely become much much more competitive. BUT! Then it would add two years onto the already awful amount of time PhDs take. Would it be worth it? Did anyone else look into this or apply? Let me know what you think plssss :grief:
  6. On the department, it says 3 but does not go beyond to say whether they encourage or discourage 4th, 5th, or 6th letter. The application portal allows up to 6. The general Stanford graduate school says to consult the department before utilizing the slots allocated for 4-6th letters. I've contacted the department but no reply for a while... It's my understanding that over-submitting letters is generally negative. Do you think that applies to Stanford Econ?
  7. Hey folks, I just started my applications for PhD in computer security. Please take a look at my profile below and inform me if the universities I am aiming for are a possibility or not. GRE- 335; 167v 168q 5.0w TOEFL- 117; 30 in speaking, reading and listening; 27 in writing BE in IT from Manipal Institute of Technology- 9.47/10, rank 1 of 150 MS in CS from ETH, Zurich- 5.18/6 One paper published; 3 under review. 3 recommendations from ETH; 2 from Manipal- all excellent Universities that I am applying to: Stanford, MIT, UCB, Cornell, CMU, Princeton, Cambridge, Oxford, Toronto, Australian National Uni. Do you think I have a reasonable shot at getting in them? I have been operating under the principle that the last two are 'safe' given my profile, is that a valid assumption? Thanks a lot for your time!
  8. Are you interested in gaining valuable research experience and academic training starting in July 2016? Tuesday, October 27, 2015, is the fall application deadline for the first round of admissions to the Research Fellows Program at the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB). This program offers a unique post-baccalaureate, two-year fellowship for high-potential U.S. citizens and permanent residents to gain valuable research and academic training before applying to a PhD program in business related fields. Fellows have the opportunity to work with distinguished GSB faculty members, take doctoral level courses, and fully engage in the intellectual life at GSB and the University. The fellowship offers tuition, health insurance, and a living stipend. Questions about the Research Fellows program can be directed to gsb_fellows@stanford.edu. Prospective applicants are also invited to attend an information session to learn more about the program. Because of its strong belief in the value of diversity (broadly defined) in the pursuit of its educational mission,Stanford GSB strongly encourages applications from women and under-represented minorities, as well as from others whose backgrounds and experience would bring additional dimensions to the educational experience.
  9. Hi all, I am an undergraduate studying organizational behavior (individualized concentration) and finance, although my degree will officially be a B.S. in Economics. I am starting my senior year and look to apply to OB programs soon. I'm on track to graduate with a 3.8 (summa cum laude) and I have worked at a big consulting firms (if that is at all relevant to PhD applications). On track to get a 160 on both Quant and Verbal of the GRE. Last summer, I have completed a research project in micro-OB as an undergraduate and it was received positively by faculty mentors, who have written me recs. A few questions, and I'd really appreciate insights from anyone who knows more about the OB process: 1) I withdrew from an undergraduate probability course because I hated it and because I was on track to get a B in the course or lower. I have not withdrawn from anything else. Will this be a kiss of death at places like HBS/GSB/other top OB schools? Should I retake this course or just take some graduate courses in applied statistics (which I love) and if so, how do I explain this on my SOP? I have taken multivariable calculus (A) and other stat courses (A-, A, B+). 2) I'm interested in the intersection of psychology, motivation, and employee behavior, and this is what I focused my research on. What are micro-OB programs looking for nowadays in candidates? 3) Should I work for more time before applying? What kind of jobs would be favorable? I'd really appreciate any information you guys have on the subject. Thanks in advance! Best, Croom
  10. Hi Everyone, I am thinking of enrolling in some Non-Degree Graduate Statistics courses offered via Stanford's Online platform. More specifically, it is the Stanford Center for Professional Development. Is it necessary that I report my grade that I achieve in this class on my application when I apply to Econ PhD programs? I just graduated undergrad, and I am working for a couple of years before applying to PhD programs. I'm not necessarily looking to take these classes as a way to boost my application -- rather I'm just taking these classes out of interest. If I do well, I will certainly think about puttin them on my application, but if I don't do well, am I obligated to still report these grades? Thanks!
  11. Hi guys, I've been in this website a lot, but this is my first post. Right now, I'm very interested in doing a PhD in Algorithmic Game Theory, especially which can be applied to Economics problems. I did several research and found an interesting fundamental book for this field, Algorithmic Game Theory, written by 4 professors : 3 is in the US. These are described as follows. - Tim Roughgarden : Stanford University - Eva Tardos : Cornell University - Vijay Vazirani : Georgia Institute of Technology Now my problem is since I wanted to apply them in economics problem, I should find a university where it has great faculty both in CS and Economics. I have considered 3 programs from these universities - Computational and Mathematical Engineering : Stanford University (I have looked in a CS curriculum and it's kinda strict to the CS courses, so I'm looking in this one instead. Also, it has great economics faculties) - Computer Science : Cornell University (This one is not as strict as one in Stanford) - Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization : Georgia Institute of Technology (I found this one the most interesting, both in subjects and professor, but it's Economics was not well considered by outsiders) I would like to ask for opinions from you guys about which one I should considered the most in order to achieve my goal. My goal resides in both academia and industry, but more in academia. I plan to be both a teacher and a consultant for government sectors. Any feedback and comment will be very grateful!!! Best Regards, Donn
  12. Wharton's one of the top business schools, including in the field of marketing. How come it doesn't have stellar placements? I noticed that Stanford and UChicago have much better placements, but Wharton is ranked better than UChicago. What do you think could be the reason for Wharton's not-so-amazing placements?
  13. Well, it's one of the top programs, so it must be good at many fields, but what field is notably strong? (I have heard that IO is good, but what about others?) What are some of the fields where most working papers are written, seminars working lively, and so on?
  14. Is Math 171 (Fundamental Concepts of Analysis) the Stanford's version of the "Real Analysis" for economics phd preparation? Does this course cover sufficient materials? I'm asking because it is a quarter course, rather than a year-long sequence, as most universities offer a 3-quarter sequence of Real Analysis. If there is the equivalent two/three-quarter-sequence at Stanford, what are they? Also, what other advanced math/stats courses at Stanford would you recommend taking for Econ Ph.D. preparation? Thanks a lot!:)
  15. Hi all! New to Urch and in a strange situation. (aren't we all? :) ) anyway, until i get the hang of writing a decent post i hope y'all will bear with me :) Here's all about me - Educational Qual - BSc. (3 year bachelor's Degree) in Microbiology (University of Mumbai, India) MSc. in Health Sciences (University of Pune, India) MS in Biotechnology (Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA) Nationality (I wish it didn't matter but I'm afraid it does): Indian Years of Work Experience: 5+ Industry: Biotech/Pharma After my MS I worked at a medical device company in upstate NY for a couple years before moving back to India. I work for a biotech company here and in several ways its a dream job (considering the fact that my family owns the company), but I'm yearning to get back to school as I've realized nothing really makes me as happy as working in research. I'm not saying life in research is cake-walk; just that I'm ready to take on the pain and labor for the fulfillment it'll provide. Big words ha. I have no formal background in psychology; however I've taken a couple Marketing, OB and Econ courses while at Hopkins. I've also taken statistics courses during my MSc, and have done field-based research and lab-based research. Most my marketing knowledge is self taught from reading and experience. My field of interest for my PhD research is CB/Social Psych/Marketing. While I know that my completely unrelated background could swing either ways of being an advantage or a disadvantage in terms of admissions, what I'm really looking for help in, is to find that starting point. Do I need a Masters degree in a related subject? I'm yet to take the GRE/GMAT (I've learnt that most schools accept either these days) but I scored well when I took it 5 years ago (1440/1600) and I'm not worried about test scores really. Are writing to current students/professors and campus visits of any use/encouraged/discouraged these days? I've been looking at schools and labs/ professors and I've shortlisted a few. Definitely top notch people in the field, although I'm not sure if I should list them here at this point. Starting from the ground up and aiming at the stars, I suppose! :) Looking forward to feedback/critiques! Cheers, lwl
  16. Hey there! Today I received my TOEFL score, and it's 92/120. Reading: 25/30 Listening: 14/30 Speaking: 26/30 Writing: 27/30 Total: 92/120 Is it good? Good enough? I'm currently applying for Harvard and Stanford, so :) I know I scored really high in everything except Listening, but... What do you guys think?? My Listening section is pretty mediocre because while I was listening, many people were in the Speaking part (I got rather late to the center). We were around 20 people taking the iBT... I couldn't hear very well. Would that count as a way to redo the exam without any cost? Should I write to the TOEFL people? (My GPA is of 3.59, if that changes any of your answers?) Thanks in advance! :D
  17. Just read about wordprom.com on Poets & Quants and Businessweek. I am applying to several schools round 1. I downloaded a few essays per each question only to see if I am in the right direction. The essays were very inspiring. I won't need as many hours of consulting services as I thought I would. I recommend all of you who are using consulting services to checkou the site!
  18. Greetings everyonehttp://forum.thegradcafe.com/public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png I am an undergraduate economics student who's very interested in statistics. I know that Stanford has a top statistics department and a top economics department as well. But I heard that the strength of its economics department lies in game theory and IO. So I would like to know how its econometrics ranks. Does the strength of the statistic department pass through to its econometrics? Any idea would be very much appreciated! Thanks! http://forum.thegradcafe.com/public/style_images/master/rep_up.png http://forum.thegradcafe.com/public/style_images/master/rep_down.png 0 Quote MultiQuote Blog This
  19. I just noticed that the program I applied to, Stanford Statistics MS, prior to admission requires that students mail two official transcripts to the department. I applied online and uploaded unofficial versions in my application. Since the deadline is tomorrow, do you think I could still have transcripts sent out, arrive late, and still be considered? Does anyone have any experience with this?
  20. So I'm doing last minute corrections to my Stanford Application for a PhD specializing in Accounting. I took the GRE and got 590 verbal (84%), 800 quant (94%). I took the GMAT and got 44 verbal (97%), 49 quant (85%), and 760 overall (99%). Stanford prefers the GRE, but will accept the GMAT. I have to choose only one to submit. Which should I choose, my GMAT or my GRE scores? Thanks!
  21. Hello, Thank you for your time. I am thinking about applying to MS in Computer Science. About me: *International Student, But Go To US 4-Year College, Rank 60-70th *GPA 3.9 (both major and overall) *Top 10% in my class in my major *Some Research Experience (submitted one paper, 2nd author, stilling waiting for result) *GRE: V730 Q800 AW 3.5 *3 Internships in Top Companies in the industry *LOR - unknown I am thinking about MS only in the following schools, (in my order of preference) Stanford, MIT, Harvard, Berkeley, Princeton, CMU, Princeton, Yale, UPenn, UCLA, USC, University of Washington Please, could you guys give me any input of my chance of getting into those?

  22. Hello ! I would like to know if ever I have any chance of being accepted for a PhD at Stanford : I am in a prestigious french university (Ecole Centrale de Lyon, to be precise), and I think except my weakness that is my non-exceptional academic transcripts, I could have a solid applicaion, with good GRE, and relevant experience for the job, including a relevant master. But do you think "not exceptional" (but not too bas as well) academic transcripts could be fatal to my application, even if I have a good GRE and so on ? Thanks a lot for your precious help ! Regards.
