ECON PhD Profile Evaluation (poor math grades)
ohmygrades posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsI'm from an Australian top uni with first class honors in economics, my goal is top30 but now I think my math grades should be a disadvantage.

Profile Evaluation (Where to apply?)
CarlosCostanza posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsPROFILE: Type of Undergrad: BA Math, Economics, at a top 30 private US university Undergrad GPA: 3.7 (3.8 Econ, 3.6 Math) Type of Grad: n/a Grad GPA: n/a GRE: n/a (Will take in September) Math Courses: Calculus I-III(A,A,B+), Linear Algebra (A), ODE (A-), Theory of Probability (A), Honors Real Analysis (B), Honors Real Analysis II (??B+), Mathematical Statistics (A), Honors Fourier Analysis (Fall 2017) Econ Courses (undergrad-level): Intro micro and macro (placed out), Intermediate Macro (rigorous track) (A), Intermediate Micro (rigorous track) (A), Econometrics I (A-), Econometrics II (A-), Econometrics III (A-), Advanced Financial Economics (A-) , Advanced Micro Theory (A-), Game Theory (rigorous track) (Fall 2017) Other Courses:B+ in Computer Science (as part of math major) Letters of Recommendation: One from a well known microeconomics and one from RA. The last I am unsure of. Research Experience: Will be doing a Regional Fed summer research internship Research Interests: Development, Political Economy (& Game Theory), Econometrics Applying to: (Top) NYU, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Stanford, Chicago, UC San Diego, UCLA (Masters) U Toronto (doctoral) , UBC, LSE, Oxford (Other schools of Interest) UW-Seattle, U Rochester, USC, UC Irvine, ... I had a few speed bumps to put it lightly and a streak of A- that I would rather like to take back but can do nothing about. I worked exceptionally hard on my honors analysis course. Analysis II grade has not been released but I am guessing average or better (did get an A- on the midterm). The course is very difficult and the second course in the sequence is at the level of my institution's graduate analysis (Used Royden). And in my statement of purpose I believe I can make a good case that I rushed the math due to the fact that I switched from business major where I never completed more than single variable calculus. With this largely mediocre profile I am unsure of the range of schools to apply to. I have some masters listed because I believe now I am "competitive" with my peers and so will be able to do well when given a chance to just focus on new content and thus will have a better chance at top schools. Irregardless, can anyone recommend a range of schools to apply or a particular school which would be a good fit. Also, for the masters programs, what are my chances? Thanks
Rank the Top 30
Polak posted a topic in PhD in EconomicsPlease rank the top 30 PHD Econ Schools This is just for fun... I'm bored & trying to get a feel for what schools are moving up/down... And if you wanna toss out some good Public Econ schools, that would be tremendous. (Leave out T10, I'm not exactly harvard material) Thanks
