rustytrix Posted October 24, 2010 Share Posted October 24, 2010 (edited) Turns out, if you want to get published in APSR or the likes (or even prosper in quant-heavy grad schools(read:most schools)) you better be doing a lot of quant work. So why not have some mathematical pre-requisites (or at least recommendations) for non-theory applicants like the econ departments? P.S. If you are a new applicant and have time to take math courses at your undergrad inst., get these over with before u start grad school (if u plan to do quant work, of course): -3 Semesters of Calculus (including multi variate) -Probability -Mathematical Statistics (using calculus) -Real Analysis (def do this one to save yourself some misery later in life) -Linear Algebra -Topology ...in other words, just do a double major including math.
