What are my chances for getting into a Economics PhD program


Recommended Posts

I am trying to be very realistic. I have a terrible UG GPA, an ok Grad GPA, and a pretty good GRE score. I know a top 50 isn’t for me. But, do you think between 50-85 is doable? I am thinking UCONN, Kansas, Utah, etc. 

Undergrad: Economics

Undergrad GPA: 2.9

Masters: Economics

Graduate GPA: 3.52


V: 160

Q: 164

LOR: Masters Thesis Advisor and a Masters Committee member

Years out of UG: 3

Years out of Masters program: 1

Work Experience: Entrepreneur (owned business in college), Development Loan Officer, Treasury Risk Associate at a Multinational bank

Thanks for any replies. I appreciate your time.
