spanishnick posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsHi, I applied to PhD in Economics programs but no luck so far (0a/6r/3ir). As such, I'd like to know what I could do to increase my odds to get in next year. I graduated in Maths with Economics (Bsc Honours) with a 2.1 from Exeter (GPA 3.3). I had medical issues before and during my studies and therefore couldn't attend more than a couple classes per year. Got a Master in Economics and Experimental Economics from the same uni (1st class, GPA 3.83) After that, I've worked for 4 months with JPAL, 1.5 years with IPA, 2.5 years with the Institute for Development Studies and a year with the World Bank, and should be coauthoring a couple of papers this year. Letters of recommendation from 2 econ profs from my masters' program (7 years ago) and from a couple of political scientist from top schools (Toronto and NYU) Unfortunately, it seems that work experience cannot compensate my low undergraduate grades from a second-tier school. Any suggestions as what I could to improve my application for next year would be more than welcome. Thanks

WelshCorgi posted a topic in GREWhat is the best book to study GRE yourself?
I was wondering what are your thoughts on where should a student work for part-time in order to support his/her studies. We know that going to school is not easy and it's really expensive already. So, where should a student go for part-time and why?
