Wow! Didnt think people would start talking!
I applied to a few econ and a few public policy programs. So far only rejection at econ schools. I got in an Agricultural and Resource Economics program and got waitlisted at an Econ one.
About the PPol schools, just got rejected at Michigan for the joint PPol&Econ. 😐 Waiting for Harris, Kennedy and Carnegie Mellon, but not very optimistic... For some reason I had a feeling they would interview (unlike Econ programs) and I didnt get any interviews so far for these schools. Do you know if they all interview?
