  1. Hello All, I hope this post could interest some of you. I would like to get some insight into the matter of transferring undergrad institution. To briefly provide my background: My goal: get into the best possible Ph.D. in economics program (>=T30) My current institution and My current plan: get BS in Math/Stat + Econ minor (Purdue, Math/Stat>T30, Econ T40ish), and get MS in Stat in the same institution (all completed in 3 years from now). If I transfer: (if I get in) Brown, Cornell, Umichigan, Claremont McKenna (T10 LAC) ECON or Math/Stat or both (I only can apply to these institutions because I will be transferring in Spring 2022) If I transfer, I plan to just complete my BS and apply to ECON PHD programs, and the cost would be roughly +$100,000 from my original plan (completion estimated time would be 2.5 years from now - half year decrease from my original plan). So, I would like to ask you all if I should transfer (of course, given that I get in) to those institutions or not. If I do transfer, I would be able to take more courses as undergrad since I will have completed quite a lot of math/econ courses at Purdue. I question is focused on "would transferring worth it (better chance in getting into better program & given the cost)?" I "can" afford the additional cost, but it would be quite a burden for my parents of course. Please provide me with some insight into this matter. I would appreciate any comments on this. I hope I could be able to make the decision based on your comments. Thank you. ++ Just to add, I would also like to know some thoughts on Duke MAE. So, if I were to pursue Duke MAE after graduating Purdue (BS Math/Stat + Econ Minor), it would take 3 years from now to complete it, and it would be roughly +$150,000 from the original plan. Does anyone think this might be the best option among the three (stay at Purdue and do MS Stat OR Transfer (no MS) OR Purdue+Duke MAE)? I know I kinda rambled on, but please help me out. Thank you, all.
  2. I'm currently a California community college student looking to transfer into a 4-year university. I'm starting to think about reach schools to apply to. Through the lens of phd admissions, which schools would be worth going to over UC Berkeley?
  3. PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: B.A. Mathematics (Honors), B.S. Economics, B.S. Computational Data Sci (Rising Sophomore @ T80 - Honors College) Undergrad GPA: 3.93 Overall, 4.00 Econ Type of Grad: N/A Grad GPA: N/A GRE: N/A Math Courses: Honors Linear Algebra (A-), Discrete Mathematics I (A), Partial Differential Equations (A) Econ Courses (grad-level): N/A Econ Courses (undergrad-level): Behavioral Economics (A), Honors Microeconomics (A) "equivalent of intro micro + intermediate micro", Intro to Econometrics (A) Other Courses: Some programming classes @ Current Uni (all A's)Modern Cryptography, Calc I-III, Differential Eqs, Analysis I @ Dual Enrollment in HS + a lot of AP credits Letters of Recommendation: Currently unknown, but I'll definitely ask the chair of the Statistics department at my university. Others not sure, but will likely ask those who are teaching the graduate courses I'm enroll in later on. Research Experience: RA over Junior Summer of HS (co-authored on article accepted to MAA, to be published sometime in 2020), RA for two projects last semester working under Chair of Statistics department (some presentations at home institution), RA this Summer working under Chair of Statistics department (solely responsible for drafting a manuscript to be submit to a journal in developmental economics, not sure which journal though, chair will decide, might also be national conference presentation possibilities + further pubs). Teaching Experience: N/A as of yet, but applied to a TA position in the Fall for an introductory C++ programming class. Research Interests: Unknown at this point in time, but I plan to apply for Ph.D. in either Applied Mathematics or Economics. SOP: N/A Concerns: I'm considering transferring to the University of Michigan (instate). I don't like the atmosphere at my current university, but would be willing to bear my discontent if it meant that I could continue to build a graduate school application with strong research credentials. Other: I haven't drawn up an extensive undergraduate coursework plan as of yet, but I do know what my Sophomore year will be. My Fall semester includes the following courses: Graduate Parallel Computing, Graduate Econometrics Ia,Graduate Probability & Statistics I, and Honors Abstract Algebra I. My Spring semester is much the same with the following: Graduate Numerical Linear Algebra, Graduate Econometrics Ib, Graduate Probability & Statistics II, and Honors Abstract Algebra II. My current university has offered a lot of flexibility with the courses I can take, which I consider a positive. Regardless of whether I transfer or not I still want to move forward with building a strong application for graduate school, so any input on this front based on the profile above is appreciated. I'm looking for advice on some of the concerns I demonstrate in the last few sections, and I do plan to ask my research mentor/some other students the same questions and get their input too. Thanks for any advice.

  5. Hi I'm university student, and currently I went to university in Korea.(I'm sophomore now) I want to pursue phd degree in the states, but I know that the prestigiousness of undergraduate college can affect the admission of phd. I didn't went to top university in Korea and not many of my school's students go to study abroad. So these days, I'm considering to transfer to one of the public universities in states such as UW-madison, U of minnesota, penn state, and ohio state. I'm not considering private ones because it's too expensive. So here's my questions. 1. Basically, the thing I'm really worring about is about the cost. I know the tuition is way expensive.(even though it is less than private ones) So I wonder if it's possible for transfer students to get financial aid or scholarships. (I have an american citzenship. I was born in there, but I came to Korea when I was a little kid ) 2. It's really hard to be accpeted in top phd programs. And people told me it's nearly impossible for me to get in there at my circumstance. Do you think I can make it to less of a long shot by transfering to above universities? Of course, I have to really study hard and be prepared for applying to top universities. Well, I'm not sure if I can get good recommendataion from professors at transfer university. Is there anybody who transfered and accpeted into top phd programs? Please tell me about what you think. Thank you in advance.
  6. What phd programs transfer courses from an MBA finance?
  7. Hello, Currently I am enrolled in a little university known as Bentley. It is a small business university. I like it but I don't feel like the environment and opportunity will allow me to have research experience or good recommendation letters. My current GPA is 3.71 (mind you I am a freshman into second semester). I think that I could possibly transfer to NYU, U of Michigan, Northwestern, or possible somewhere else. Outside of accounting and finance Bentley is not well known and really now I am dead set on pursuing economics career. Here is the kick, I have a scholarship at Bentley that covers half my tuition. Its a great help to my parents and even though they say its okay if I change schools I feel bad for wasting my merit scholarship, however I could use the merit scholarship to get accepted at a reputable economics program. So should I transfer to a better undergrad to position myself for a good PhD (top40ish) or should I stay and try to preform better? This is very important as deadline are approaching and any answer would give me a piece of mind. Thanks in advance.
  8. I am already a PhD student. I am currently at the second year. My first year was at a top 50 school. Currently I am visiting a top 5 school and taking field courses there. The school that I am enrolled at which I spent my first year at has research interests that are far away from what I want to do. Was advised by department to transfer to a department that better suits my research interests. Not being kicked out but was advised that department could support transferring to another program ( probably requires applying again). Question: Which programs should I apply to? What range of schools should I target? Here is the profile: PROFILE: Type of Grad: First year PhD at top 50 school with following grades: Micro I (A-), Macro I (A-), Metrics I (B), Micro II (A-), Macro II (A-), Metrics II (A), Micro III (A-), Macro III (A-), Metrics III (B),Optimal Control Theory: (A) the optimal control theory course was an upper level graduate course in the math department: Currently taking 2nd year PhD courses in top 5 econ department as a visiting student. Probability theory (Its basically Measure theory and first year phd stat/math course), Game Theory and International Finance. Masters: maters in Econometrics at top 5 British uni with A's in Econometric courses and Micro and Game and dissertation. Bad grades in time series, int finance and macro. Overall GPA: 68% (almost distintion - upper merit) + Masters at Barcelona GSE with gpa 7.8/10 Type of Undergrad: Top 3 British econ program. Really did bad. GRE: I cant remember but maybe 161 in Quantitative, cant recall the others. Letters of Recommendation: Should be good. Was a RA during the first year. Could get letter of recommendation's from full profs taught at top schools. Teaching Experience: Currently TAing intermediate micro. Research Interests: Decision and Game theory + Networks. SOP: Could elaborate on my research ideas. The school that I am enrolled at which I spent my first year at has research interests that are far away from what I want to do. Was advised by department to transfer to a department that better suits my research interests. Not being kicked out but was advised that department could support trasferring to another program ( probably requires applying again). Thanks in advance. Your reply would be highly appreciated as I need to make up my mind asap as to whether I would want to change school.

  10. I'm currently an undergrad at UC Davis looking to transfer to Berkeley econ this year. My question is how transferring or not transferring might affect my admission chances to competitive graduate programs. I've heard the "big fish in a small pond" argument but I've also read on econphd.net that transferring to a better undergraduate program helps with admission.

    B2 to f1 visa

    Hello, My girlfriend is a B2 visa holder currently, she is south african. She is trying to get into school here in Miami, I would like to know what is the best way to transfer or apply for a new visa. 1: she is already in the states, how would she apply for a new F-1 who is the best contact 2: is it better for someone who is traveling to just transfer from one to the other or apply for a new one. ( I read a thread where you had said that a transfer doesnt last when you leave and return. 3: anything I should know about the process? or a thread that might help?
  12. Hello, I know this topic has been beaten to death but I need some advice on choosing classes to salvage my future- I'd appreciate any help from someone more experienced than I. My situation: I recently swtiched from reguler old Business to Honors Economics (w/ thesis) for my 3rd year. To say the least, I have totally screwed my chances of getting into a Ph.D. So now I'm gunning for a MA from a high ranked University. I attend a pretty low ranked school in Canada. Based on the situation here, I've got to fit 18 Economics classes in the remaining 25 classes I have left, which is going to be a challenge. I know that for grad school most people suggest taking copious amounts of math, but it looks like all I will be able to fit into my schedule are: 1) 1st Year Calculus sequence 2) 1 Course in Linear Algebra 2) 1 Course in multivariable Calculus 3)1 course in Introductory Analysis 3) Mathematics for Economists (This is an Econ class- the textbook is fundamentals of Mathematical Economics) 4) 1 Course in Calculus based Introductory Statistics 5) 1 course in introductory stats focusing on Regression Analysis 6) 2 courses in Econometrics (this is an Econ class) 7)Possibly classical game theory or Methods for Ordinary Diff. Eqs (whichever is better) The rest of my classes would be Economics classes/ general requirements. Does anyone think that the above profile, mathematically, would be enough to get into some half decent MA, ceritis paribus? Thanks for your time. Any other advice would be largely appreciated.
  13. I am being asked whether i was academically dismissed or have probationary action against me. Here's the situation. I was really depressed when I went to Wabash, for social and personal reasons. I was seeing the shrink regularly. They have my files. Did not get the kinda help I needed so I transferred. I did not withdraw officially from Wabash being driving off to California. Got a letter saying I have been dismissed for troubling academic reasons but then again they said I could appeal. I did in writing. I never hear back from Wabash. I went to Kutztown Uni started over and now have 3.96 with only one B three Ws and all else A. Over the course of 2.5 years I tried contacting Wabash how it went down for my appeal decision. Talked to different people including Dean of Student but never given a decision. Official transcript says nothing about academic probation or getting suspended. Since I do not know the status of my appeal, is it fair to answer that I was not suspended or on probation, given i'm answering the question with the best of my knowledge? How should I approach this? Does it mean that because of a bad start of my college career, my life is all ruined and I can never set my foot or dream of getting into a top program? how bad is this situation? Am I lying if I say "no" to that answer or I am fine cause to my best knowledge i really don't know what happened in my last college? Please answer for me if you know. I really appreciate it
  14. Long story-short: I received funded offers from four schools, but I am not too excited about enrolling in any one of them. Since I do not want to waste my year, I have decided to accept an offer. However, I will be reapplying next year to try my luck again since I am pretty sure that my lack of math background is the reason why I got rejections from all top 30 universities I applied to (I have not even taken Calculus 3 or Statistics). So my question is, do you think that one semester or one year of PhD-level coursework will increase my chances to get in a better school next year (let's assume that I will receive very good grades)? Also, do you think that it is possible to transfer from a heterodox to a mainstream economics school? If I am planning to transfer, does it still matter if I pick the highest ranked of my options, or the best funded one/best location? If I am willing to start from scratch (start from year 1 again), is this still termed a "transfer"? Any advice/personal experience would be helpful. Thanks in advance! PS: Just to clarify, my GRE score is 590/800/5.5 and my overall GPA is 3.8 (4.0 in Econ and Math). I am currently a senior at a small unranked private university in NY. I am an international student. No RA experience. I think my recommendations were pretty strong, but they are from people who teach heterodox economics (my undergraduate professors).
