  1. Hi All, I hope there is someone out there who can shed some light on my question. I am equally interested in the Business Economics and Business Administration (Strategy) PhD programs at Harvard University. When going over to each program's page on Harvard's website, I notice that the number of students in the Business Economics is significantly higher than in the Strategy program. Can anyone confirm if this means I would have a higher chance to be admitted in the Business Economics program? Thank you in advance for your info.
  2. I am international students from India with an undergrad in Eco. I also have close to 3 years of experience in statistical and development research based domains. Had a good SOP (atleast I like to think so) and okay-ish LoRs. Had a 169 quant score in GRE. I need to decide between Yale IDE and Columbia MA Econ by April second week. Yale has a smaller class size, is cheaper and has a less mathematical course structure (by the looks of it). Columbia might give more opportunities by being in NY, and in general the Econ department seems highly reputed. In the future, I plan o
  3. Hello GradCafe people! Seeking some clarity on the subject above. I'm an international student, and I'm looking to apply for an MA Economics in Canada. I'm aiming for UBC, Queen's, UWaterloo, SFU, and McMaster. Reaching out to see if anyone has been through it as an international student, and how your application was. I'm open to sharing my profile - I will add it later when more people discuss. Thank you. P.S: Stay safe during these troubling times!
  4. I am thinking of applying to PhD Studies in the next maybe 2 years. What might be a good strategic move for someone with both a BSW and and MSW (non clinical)? I want to go to a school with a robust research support but to have another degree in Social Work would be overkill. I want to obtain a PhD that speaks to the current economic climate if possible. Also gotta add I've been out of school for 10+ years and out of this game for quite some time. My options are a PhD program at UofC, UofA or another school that has a distance based PhD program.
  5. Hi everyone. I'm a MSc Student in Economics and this year I have applied to several PhD programs in US and Europe. Up to now I have received only rejections but still more than half of universities is missing (no rejection, no offer and no waiting list). However, a lot of these universities have already sent some offer to other students. I have 167Q in the GRE and a GPA of 3.8. I have three questions:1) There is still some possibility of getting an offer from these universities?2) Given that it's the end of February...how much it is likely to get an offer at all?3) It's true that no news is a
  6. Hello, I'm currently a fresh graduate student in economics from reputable university in Indonesia. I have 3.48 GPA, scored 7.5 on IELTS, and scored 164 in GRE quant and 161 in my verbal. I have several working experiences, as teaching assistant for Introduction on Microeconomics, internship at a local social enterprise and currently I'm a research assistant at independent think tank. I seem to have chance for not relying on financial aid (self-support). My biggest consideration is time, as I have to start my master degree by 2020. I plan to apply into several universities, but I str
  7. Does it matter which undergrad university my client went to? Is gaining upper 2:1 from St Andrews reduce a chance of getting offered a BPhil in Philosophy or MPhil in Economics at Oxford or Harvard?
  8. I thought this was the best place to ask these questions, so... Which Oxford masters programme is easier to get in; Economics, Sociology or Philosophy? I have a client who wants to know. Also, does it matter which undergrad uni he went to? He currently studies at a top uni in Scotland (St Andrews or Edinburgh - I am not at liberty to say which, sorry). Currently studies Economics and Philosophy, but could switch to Sociology as he like it as well. Also by studying which is it easier to gain a job at a university? Thank you all for your answers!
  9. Hello:) My name is Yiran, and I'm going to apply for some graduate programs this year Dec-Jan. I'm not sure if the programs I've chosen best fit my academic background (if they are too good to me?). I graduated with B.S. Economics (GPA 3.56) and B.A. Communication (GPA (3.57) from the University of Washington Seattle in 2018. Then I worked as a full-time data analyst at Philips Healthcare and part-time student at the University of Washington Bothell for one year. Now I'm a UW Bothell student pursuing a B.S Math degree, and will finish in Spring 2020. My current average Math GPA is 3
  10. Hey all, As application season is rapidly approaching, I'm feeling more pressure to refine the programs I'll be applying to this fall, and it's proven to be more of a struggle than I anticipated, and my university graduate advisors are not the best, which brings me here. A little about me: I graduated a little over two years ago with a B.A. double major in Economics and Political Science from a medium-sized regional university (a satellite campus of the University of Colorado). The academic side of my application is definitely my biggest strength: 3.9 overall GPA, 4.0 in econ cl
  11. 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 mayb
  12. Seeking out International Finance and Economics (MA), Ryerson University FALL 17 STUDENTS Hi, I applied to International Finance and Economics (MA, F-17), Ryerson University. Lets gather all the applicants under this thread. Share your status! It's been more than a month and I have not yet received any communication from them (apart from GS Acknowledgement). Has anyone heard anything back even from them even in different subject? Moreover, how many students do they enroll in that course and how do i know about my application status?
  13. Received offers from Purdue and Mannheim for their Economics programs (both full funding). Which one should I choose? Please. Any suggestion matters for me now.
  14. Currently admitted/ prospective or alumni of Evans, what has been your impression of Evans for MPA degree? The corses, career opportunities? I am highly interested in policy making/analysis and I feel like Seattle is not an ideal place for that. So who reputed and prestigious is Evans name, would it help me in my job hunt? Please let me know about your impression and experiences in Evans. I have to decided between GPS, Harris (15k fuding ) and Evans and it is increasingly getting stressful! Thank you
  15. Hi, In month of March and April, are any admissions deadline open for phd in economics from USA or Canada or Europe?
  16. So...it's been a couple of months but I'm still unable to choose between MA in Computational Social Sciences (MACSS) at U Chicago MPhil in Economics at Oxford and I'd really appreciate if someone could help me a bit... With partial tuition waiver at U Chicago and no funding from Oxford, the cost of attending is roughly the same so that's not a factor. In terms of curriculum, I like MACSS better because I have double degree in IT and economics, so I believe that I have a unique edge in a computational social sciences program coz I can program and do math a
  17. So I my application for the MSc in economics went through an admissions team and the head of the department told me that it was just passed to the admissions tutor today. She also said I should know the decision by the end of the week which is far earlier than the deadline. Is this a good sign? Does anybody else have experience with this?
  18. Got accepted to Syracuse (MAIR), UCSD (MPP) and Evans (MPA). Waiting: Harris (MPP), BU (Masters in Economic Policy), Syracuse (Econ) and Elliott Highly interested in public policy analysis and applied approach to policy making. I am an intl student ideally hoping to work for a think tank Any suggestions? Recommendations? I am excited to hear about your experiences and thought process. Thank you!
  19. For a person inclined towards applied theory, which is a better grad school Columbia or NWU ?
  20. Trying to decide between1. LSE MSc International Political Economy (1 yr)2. Dual Degree with Sciences Po (International Economic Policy) and the University of Toronto (Global Affairs) (2yrs total)My background is in Investment Banking in Canada. Interested in moving towards a career at the OECD, World Bank, UN etc.Although LSE ranks higher than Sciences Po in most areas I'm concerned that I won't be as competitive without having an internship during my degree.Hoping for some help!Cheers
  21. Can anyone tell me which EU universities offer masters in economics with scholarships that cover tuition and living expenses? I do not want to apply to Britain universities and I know about Bonn, CEMEFI, Carlos, BI, and Tinbergen. I applied them all.
  22. Hello all, I am a soon to be graduate playing the waiting game with my Economics PhD applications. I only applied to 4 programs (Vanderbilt, Florida State, University of Kansas, and University of Houston), and I am starting to worry. Do I stand a chance or should I consider applying to some terminal masters programs? GRE Scores (V/Q/A): 158/156/5 Undergrad: Business with specializations in Economics and Management, Math and Security and Intelligence Studies minors, member of Honors Program (will graduate as fellow), 171 credit hours in 4 years GPA: 3.82, all A's in Economic
  23. Hello! I just wanted to see how I measured up. I am applying to MS and MA Econ programs - I picked a few very selective programs and a few not-very-selective programs. I am very passionate about Economic research. I thought going for a MS/MA before applying to a PhD program would at least give me the advantage of grad-level econometrics, a few better reference letters, some data science experience, and maybe a paper or something to speak to. While I know I’m not cut for top-15 (who knows, maybe not top 50) I wonder if I am competitive as a candidate at all. Basically, I plan to apply and if I
  24. Dear All, I am applying to some US Universities for a Ph.D. in Economics. I would like to request if someone from among you, with the relevant background, would volunteer to review my Statement of Purpose. Thanks.
  25. So, Fletcher School at Tufts University has been my dream school for some time now. I got admitted into MALD and want to specialise in Development Economics but also take a few classes in Social Entreprenurship and International Political Economy. The flexibility of the MALD degree allows me to do that. I am particularly drawn to the cross registration option with Harvard and would love to take Social Entrepreneurship classes at Harvard Business School and also build some contacts. My problem is funding. I have received funding of $24k for two years (12k per year) from Fletcher. Still, th
