Hello Everyone. I'm an Economics undergraduate student at Università Bocconi. (going on exchange at the University of Virginia on spring 2018). My GPA is 26,7/30, but 27,5 if we concentrate on quantitative/economics subjects. I have taken the GRE (164Q, 163V, 3AW). I have sincerely outstanding academic refererences and I think I have written a very well balanced personal statement. No working experience, good IELTS and I speak fluently french, too. I know that at LSE they look a lot at the average, and that is my flaw together with the 3 at the GRE AW (however, I got 93% on verbal.) Do you think I stand any chance to be admitted to LSE's MSc in Economics and Philosophy? Talking aboutother programs, I'm lookingf at UCL and Pompeu Fabra pure economics. Any hint on these too? Thanks
Hi guys, I am a 23-year old French student who has applied for the PhD in Public Policy & Administration at Bocconi University, Milan. Wondering if anyone could evaluate my profile to get an idea of whether I have some decent chances of being accepted. - Undergraduate studies: Bocconi University, Bachelor in International Economics, Management and Finance - Top 5% of the cohort - Graduate studies: Sciences Po Paris, Master in International Economic Policy (2-year programme) - Top student of the cohort (expectef to get my diploma in July) - GRE: 166 Q; 161 V; 4.5 AW - Reference letters: 1 from former Italian Minister of Finance + 1 from Chief Economist of top insurance company who hired me for an internship at his office (both were my professors at Sciences Po Paris) - Work experience: long internship (> 6 months) in the Economic Research Department of a top insurance company (writing of client-oriented publications) + summer internship in a small research centre in Rome focusing on economic thought (co-authored a book with two senior researchers) + chief editor of a fairly well-known Italian online youth-based magazine Thank you very much for your help!
I recently got admitted into two programs with a full tuition waiver: Bocconi's M.Sc. in Economics and in Georgetown's M.A. in Applied Economics. Naturally, GU's housing and other costs would be much higher than Bocconi's (only 3-5k a year), and Bocconi is in top 5 European economics schools (Oxbridge and LSE are the only ones ranked higher, UCL is pretty-much leveled). Also, Bocconi is in top 16-17 econ schools in the world. Georgetown's economics ranking is much lower, but it seems to me it's a brand and quite a name... Since I intend to get a job, preferably in Europe, after my master's, what should I choose? (I already have a B.A. in economics from a U.S. school)
Hi, I have applied to quite a few Masters and PhD in Economics, and so far I have only received two responses, both which were somewhat positive, an admission offer from SFU with a $21,000 scholarship and an admission offer from Bocconi. Now, my problem is that Bocconi expect an answer before March 11th and SFU by then end of the month. I am still waiting for Cornell, UBC, and the University of Zurich (I sent that one very late, like 2-3 weeks ago). I honestly don't know what to do. Should I email them and let them know of my other deadlines (and offers?), and see if they can give me an idea of where my application is at? What about those two offers, how do these two universities compare? I heard bad things about Milan, how does the quality of life of those two places compare? I should add that I plan on pursuing a Ph.D after I am done with my Masters.
