lodr8418 Posted March 30, 2014 Share Posted March 30, 2014 (edited) Hi, I'm currently in enrolled in NYU econ MA program. I'm planning to apply for phd programs for fall 2015 entry. I'm searching specific information about econ phd programs in each school, I would like to get some advice from you guys since I do not have much information. Fields that I am Interested in: Microeconomic theory, public economics, econometrics, international trade. My Stats: GRE 600/790/3.5 (taken in June, 2011, should I retake it?) Undergrad: University of Minnesota - Twin Cities BS-Economics with Distinction 3.788/4.0 Math and stat courses: cal1,2, linear algebra and differential equations, multi-variable calculus, theory of probability and statistics 1,2(MA courses) Master: New York University MA- Economics. current GPA is about 3.7 Math and stat courses: Mathematical Analysis 1,2, Applied statistics and econometrics 1,2. I took math analysis courses in Courant Institute (Math Department) with MA and PhD math students, and I did average on exams and homeworks and got B. I do not have any research experience, and planning to do something in this summer. I'm currently interested in public economics field (mostly). So, here are my questions. 1) Which program would you recommend (to study in public economics)? 2) Which program would I get high chance to get in? 3) Would you think that I am a competitive applicant for Top 50 programs? 4) any advice about increasing my chance to get in PhD program? Thank you Edited March 30, 2014 by lodr8418 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
