  1. Hi, I'd like some advice regarding decisions regarding graduate study. I will graduate in Physics from a university in India, and I wish to shift to social science, particularly econ/pol sci/quant sociology etc., where I can use quantitative methods but also have qualitative and philosophical arguments. I received admission to the Econometrics and Mathematical Economics MSc (10 months) at the London School of Economics, which is one of the best as far as I know if one intends to get into a top US PhD in Econ. I would however, prefer to be at the intersection econ and pol sci, or maybe some sociology departments. Specifically I want to: how will political economy adcoms (like the ones at Princeton, Harris, Harvard PEG) or pol sci departments look upon the Econometrics MSc? Do I stand a chance at top sociology departments? Should I consider a different masters program? PS: I am not considering 2-year masters due to funding constraints; 10-15 month programs are ideal. I am plan to get at least two years of research experience as RA before PhD, first during 2019-20 as I have deferred MSc by a year, and in the year after completing masters, so what kind of research would help my PhD application?
  2. Hi, I'm currently a MS student and I'd like to apply to the PhD in Economics program at either my current school (ranked around 30) or 4-5 schools such as Cornell, Virginia, Rochester, etc. I'm interested in Econometrics or related areas in Computational Economics, etc. I'd be among the older candidates in the pool (almost mid-30s) and I have worked in banking/finance industry till now. I just took my GRE and scored low in the Verbal section (Q-169, V-157). Although I was scoring 170 in Quant in my mock tests, not sure what went wrong that day. My mock scores in verbal were around 157-160. Given that most schools talk only about the quantitative section, I'm guessing I shouldn't think of retaking the exam. Or do you think it's worth a shot for the schools I'm applying to? I'd actually prefer concentrating on my grades for this semester as previous grades (at another school) before this were quite poor. Till now in my current program, I have maintained a 3.9 GPA. Because of my previous grades (and also my age) I don't want to apply to top 10-15 schools. However, given that I had been in the industry for long and not too sure how Adcoms think, do you think I should try for better? Or am I not even being realistic with these schools and should aim lower? My choice of schools are mostly those that have deadlines in January instead of December (I want to get more A grades to support my application and recommendations from my current program). Which is why I can't apply to USC, even though they may be pretty good at econometrics. I have one more important question - Is it really bad to mention that I'm interested in working in the industry or in research (only research and not teaching) while writing my SOP? I have heard a lot of times that one would get rejected if one mentions moving to the industry. How true is that, specially at the schools I'm thinking of applying to? I can't think of a career in teaching and I just wouldn't be good at it. I understand I'm asking a lot of different questions and you would be getting it a lot.....however, any help would be really appreciated. (please don't ask why I'm leaving the industry in the first place to get a PhD)
  3. Iam researching on integrating Economic & Artificial Intelligence, As part of my research im currently designing a web application, which I want to redesign the Economics Part. Most of the legwork has been done. Iam looking for a partner, guide and a mentor, who can guide me on my current research and support publishing research paper as well as development and testing part of our Economics. Must be an expert in Economics both Micro & Macro. I will have a fully functional website soon to give you an idea of where you will be starting. Mean time you can have a look at our project listed under UNESCO Contest. https://www.entrepreneurship-campus.org/ideas/14/5936/ It is important to understand that I am looking for someone to research deep in the area of Economics. Iam expecting your relentless care & supervision, consummate and erudite guidance in the field of economics in structuring I-CACE to a well designed research project. I would like to connect I-CACE research with both Micro & Macro Economics, especially connecting the theories related to The Solow-Swan growth Model of Economic, Trade bloc & Factor market.
  4. Hi there! I'd like to know if anyone knows the best academic website with material of Econometrics at graduate level (Master and PhD). I'm keen on a website with problem set and its solutions in order to train myself for my final exam of Econometrics. For example, I've just found this personal website of Hisayuki Yoshimoto (UCLA) http://hisayoshimoto.bol.ucla.edu/graduate_teaching.html with strong material for GMM estimators and multinomial choice models, but I'd like to find another website with material of Panel Data (static and dynamic). Thanks in advance!
  5. Hi everyone! Did anyone study at CEMFI? The thing is that I'm currently taking a graduate course on Econometrics and my teacher (who got his PhD Econ at CEMFI), is using the same set of exercises as Manuel Arellano. I got fascinated with those problems, they're quite interesting and I think those problem sets are quite difficult than any other proposed by standard books of Econometrics (e.g. Greene, Wooldridge, Hayashi), so I would like to know if there's a way to access to the complete set of exercises (I think there are around 12, but our teacher sent us only 6 as our course is shorter than a Econometrics course at PhD level) and its solution manual. Thanks in advance P.S. Here's an example. This is the problem set for Endogeneity: https://www.4shared.com/office/2yficF4Xba/Chapter_6_-_Endogeneity.html

  7. Hi, I am starting the MALD programme at Fletcher soon and need advise on courses to pick. I am a trained lawyer who has been working in the development sector. I am working to build a career in the international development space - working in an international agency on the legal side of things. However, I notice a lot of people in the development sector come with backgrounds in economics, finance and mathematics - which is not a strong skill of mine. My question is: do i need to take courses in econometrics, quantitative methods and related economics fiields of study ? I don't want to be impaired by my lack of ability in these subjects when it comes to jobs. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.
