  1. Thanks. That's all very helpful information. And I like the idea of the MAPSS at Chicago. If I could get a good scholarship, I would definitely be interested in doing that before a PhD program.
  2. I'm piggy-backing on this question. My background isn't nearly as impressive, but I'd like to know my odds for a top 30 school. Type of Undergrad Institution: Nationally ranked liberal arts college, but only in the top150 rangeMajor(s)/Minor(s): Econ/EnglishUndergrad GPA: 3.5 (major was 3.8, but idk if that means anything at all)GRE: V: 166, Q: 162 (based on a few practice tests)Any Special Courses: n/aLetters of Recommendation: Two from econ profs that should be pretty favorable but not well-known, third probably from employer/owner of consulting firmResearch Experience: Senior thesis about domestic policy econ stuff, professional quant consulting, but I'm not sure how much that counts Work experience after undergrad in analytic consulting. I'm interested in the theory track, but I think I'm well-suited to methods/other quant stuff, maybe as a minor. I can handle whatever must be said. Like I mentioned, I'm shooting for top 30. If that's not feasible, would like to know what my expected range should be. Thanks.
