  1. The email from the Krieger Graduate Admissions said the offer is conditional. But I didn't find the conditions in the offer letter (from the professor who interviewed me). Does anybody know where I can find the conditions?
  2. Hi there! I'm a senior looking to apply for economic development/public policy PhD programs. My dream would be the Tufts joint PhD with Fletcher in Economics and Public Policy. My question is: what job titles will help my application stand out? Currently on my CV I have: Research assistant, public policy analysis intern, and legal administrator. By the time I apply this fall, I'll have team lead on the Fed Challenge (hopefully with a placement), and three or four single or dual author papers as first author. (With any luck one or two of them will be published....) I'm working on a project right now updating and editing an economic development textbook intended to be opensource for developing countries. I'm the lead on the project under faculty supervision with two other students working on this. What are some titles I can suggest to the faculty that I can add to my CV for this position?

Microeconomics Professor -IIM Indore under whose supervision I completed the Microeconomics project2. Macroeconomics Professor- IIM Indore- Who took courses3. Statistics Professor - IIM Indore - Who supervised the Live projectConcerns: I know my profile is lacking in the following: RA ships, Not enough math/econ courses. I am planning to take up online econ/math courses ( real analysis, measure theory) and R/ Stata courses as well. Which kind of certifications will be considered by admissions committee ( any course certification from US univs?) Can someone specify some certification courses covering the above topics which can compensate for the lacking in maths/econ courses?I do know I like research , but till now most people have suggested me to go for a Masters rather than a Phd. is there any hope for me to get into a PhD econ program with this profile?Kindly suggest some schools I can apply to for both Phd & Masters in econ/ Financial economics where I might have a chance!Thank You!
  4. I'm a current Masters student in economics, and many of my research interests appear to align more with the work of sociologists than economists. I've searched through a few doctoral programs already, but I have just a few questions: Is it problematic to have no true formal background in sociology? Do doctoral programs value strong math backgrounds? Is this sort of transition common and does anyone have any firsthand experience with it? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated as well
  5. Hi everyone. I took the GRE last summer and got 163Q 157V 5W, my gpa is 3.76 (my major GPA is probably higher) and I'm Applied math + Econ at a practically unranked school for Economics. I have volunteer experience, small research award, and teaching experience (basically tutoring, but with different titles). I am second author on a manuscript but I'm positive we won't have the paper by the time I apply. I also spent a semester writing a paper of my own that I hope I'll have ready then (not published, just a writing sample). I have family (special needs) who I want to stay close to, so I'd really hope I could stay relatively close to NJ. Beggars can't be chooser though, so any recommendation is appreciated. My questions are: 1. I already registered to retake my GRE. I was sad about the score, especially the quant section, my diagnosis on Magoosh though, was surprisingly accurate, for those who also use Magoosh. Do you think, assume the worst case that my GRE quant won't get better even after the next take, 163 is good enough for Michigan State or a decent school with health economics faculty? 2. Any school recommendations? 3. What should I do with the manuscript I wrote with a faculty member (presented at a conference, under revision for resubmission.) Thanks a lot!
  6. I just got my GRE scores: AW 4.5, V 170, Q 170. I feel a bit bad about my writing score. The other two measures are great obviously, and the V much better than I expected. I will apply for a Econ PhD this fall, and aim at the top 10-15. I know it's tough to get accepted, but my GPA is strong and so are my letters. I'm only concerned about my writing score. Do you think I should retake the GRE? By doing so I'll most likely spoil my perfect scores in the other two sections. Fyi: I'm an international applicant. Not sure if this makes any difference...
