  1. You got into Berkeley, right? I'll be at the visit days next week!
  2. Also idk why I didn't think of this, but probability theory is very helpful too. Like, if you have another year in school and are free to take whatever classes you want, I'd take that as well, but otherwise I wouldn't worry too much about it.
  3. Like formal theory? If you want to make it into Caltech or GSB, calc 3 and real analysis won't hurt. If you're not trying to get into those two specifically (ie aiming or WashU, Rochester, Emory), don't worry about taking more math.
  4. This is going to totally out me to any adcoms, if I haven't already done so (but hopefully very few lurk here) PROFILE: Type of Undergrad Institution: R1, somewhere in the top 30-55 ranked polisci PhD programs. Ranked 50-100 of undergrad schools. Yes, I'm trying to be a little vague. Major(s)/Minor(s): econ, stats, political science Undergrad GPA: a hair under 3.9. It's probably worth noting that my last 2 year GPA was much much better than the first 2 year GPA. Type of Grad: none GRE: 94-98th percentile on all sections. Only took once. Any Special Courses: 3 PhD-level co
  5. If anyone's still wondering where your Harvard rejection letter is, it's in your "promotions" folder if you use Gmail. Pretty shitty promotion tbh.
  6. Hey have any NYU admits who plan on going to their visitation day gotten more info about the schedule/hotel etc.?
  7. LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND POLITICAL SCIENCE (LSEPS) ECONOMICS, Masters (F18) Accepted via E-mail on 28 Feb 2019 28 Feb 2019 report spam APPLICATION WAS COMPLETE ON JAN 8TH, I'M VERY HAPPY TO HAVE GOTTEN AN OFFER FROM MY COUNTRY (IM BRITISH FROM BATH - NOT THE TOOL WE USE TO WASH, BUT RATHER THE CITY IN SOMERSET). I HAVE A DECISION TO MAKE BUT I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE ACCEPTANCE. I WISH THEY GAVE ME SOME FUNDING THOUGH... THE TUITION IN POUNDS IS MORE THAN I WEIGH AND IM A HEFTY BLOKE.
  8. Nice. That's pretty consistent with what I'd expect. I like numbers like that a lot better than some of these "hundreds of qualified candidates from over 40 countries" stuff.
  9. Harvard is a big program, but that's largely because it has a really good yield rate and not necessarily large accept rate (like, no one's going to say no to Harvard except for maybe Stanford or Princeton or the other CHYMPS if those are more geographically convenient or are stronger at what one wants to study). I've read about 24 admitted one year. That being said, there's like 4 accepts and one waitlist on the survey page which seems low but isn't outside the realm of possibility. I've previously seen about 1/3 of acceptances from similar elite schools (so I'd maybe expect to see close
  10. Same ugh, it included like a named fellowship and everything
  11. I'd do some hard thinking about what you want out of your career. If you want to be a professor at an R1, your chances are going to be much higher with a top 15 ish degree, which MAPSS will help you get. If you want to work for an NGO, it's probably not necessary and Maryland would be a great option given it's good faculty and prime location.
  12. Be sure to check your spam and other folders. I use Gmail and I think it went into "promotions"
  13. Do something like "-london"
  14. It sounds like I'm getting rejected from Harvard too at this point, which hurts a little but is ok. Literally everyone but Harvard has emailed me today, which has caused a lot of heart racing. I hope everyone is seeing this exchange on the results page about the LSE econ student from Bath. It's a little funny.
