ALL Economics, PhD (F21) Wait listed via Other on 4 Mar 2021 4 Mar 2021 TPB: Boston is not clear right now, UCSD still a chance to get waitlisted (although I think they've already sent out the main offers), NYU seems like an IR
All Economics, PhD (F21) Wait listed via Other on 3 Mar 2021 O3 Mar 2021 TPB: I heard from different schools they expect a lot of movement around April 15th. More so than previous years given the longer waitlists at some unis (from top to bottom). I doubt there will be a lot of movement in the next month.
All Economics, PhD (F21) Wait listed via Other on 3 Mar 2021 O3 Mar 2021 Hi. Wish you all have received or will receive good offers. Does anybody know when the uncertainties about wait-listed students are resolved? Does it differ between different universities? I am more interested to know about Princeton (I am wait-listed there) and how they manage this process. Thanks!
All Economics, PhD (F21) Wait listed via Other on 27 Feb 2021 O27 Feb 2021 TPB: good point. That is actually why some schools wait until April 15. Even the final hours matter, as a chain may be triggered very late. That said, I think it is also a good idea if everyone declares which offers they are going to decline, specifically those at high ranking universities.
All Economics, PhD (F21) Rejected via Other on 25 Feb 2021 O25 Feb 2021 Why the hell schools do not inform their decisions?
ALL Economics, PhD (F21) Wait listed via Other on 24 Feb 2021 U24 Feb 2021 Ask for advice. Do you think it is good to write to a university that you already have an acceptance from another program of the same ranking but you are more interested in attending their program? It would increase the probability of being accepted?
All Economics, PhD (F21) Wait listed via Other on 23 Feb 2021 23 Feb 2021 How probable is it to be a/r/wl after been invited for interviews at US universities?
All Economics, PhD (F21) Wait listed via Other on 23 Feb 2021 I23 Feb 2021 TPB: I'm currently on the waitlist at the University of Michigan and didn't submit GRE scores. I remember seeing a post by someone who said they got in there with no GRE as well. Not sure about other programs, though.
All Economics, PhD (F21) Rejected via POST on 23 Feb 2021 O23 Feb 2021 Is there anyone who has been accepted without GRE (optional submission)? I think the U.S. programs only made money by suggesting that option.
All Economics, PhD (F21) Other via Other on 22 Feb 2021 O22 Feb 2021 TBP asking when Pittsburg, UIUC, etc will send decisions: no one on here or Urch is going to be able to tell you that. All you can do is look at previous year's of gradcafe results, which is all anyone else is going to be able to do as well.
All Economics, PhD (F21) Other via Other on 27 Jan 2021 O27 Jan 2021 Why is it so difficult this year? Is it because of enrollment reduction or some other issue?
ALL Economics, PhD (F21) Other via Other on 20 Jan 2021 20 Jan 2021 To the follow-ups, could you please state your background of whether domestic or international applicants? Many thanks!
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 20 Jun 2020 I20 Jun 2020 Yes, many from different countries will not be able to go there because of US travel ban. South asian people will be added to that list as its codiv cases are rising!
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via POST on 10 Jun 2020 O10 Jun 2020 TPB: That is not 100% true, but improving your scores will help your application. If you can afford it, I suggest you take the GRE a second time. If you can't afford it or get a lower/same score the second time around, you'll still find good universities that accept students with scores lower than 165 (just a few I know: University of Tennessee and University of Houston - I have a couple of friends who got in and had scores lower than 165).
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via POST on 10 Jun 2020 O9 Jun 2020 TPB: If you're planning to apply again, please ensure that that GRE Quant score is at least 165. There's a common understanding that most Econ PhD programs consider only those applicants with a minimum GRE Quant score cut-off. This may not be true everywhere, and could be a coincidence, but this is what us commonly understood about PhD admissions in general. Best of Luck, and Cheers! :)
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via POST on 9 Jun 2020 O9 Jun 2020 TPB. Application to any Econ / Appl. Econ / Ag. Econ PhD program is a stressful process by itself. Several different platforms, way too much time gone into filling forms and wiriting essays, and a lot of money may be spent in the process. Further stress may come if you have close friends and/or colleagues getting admitted, and you somehow feel "left behind"... But still, you shouldn't decline on your aspiration! Not everyone wants to purposely get themselves into such a rigorous deal as a PhD, so you have won a big first step by setting up your mind to go for it. Now, based on my experience (I have scores quite similar to yours, and got admitted this year--but was rejected last year) I could only give you these recommendations: [1] Choose well the universities you are willing to apply: Sometimes we wish for admission to a "dream school," but you might as well wonder whether it is a good fit for you aspirations as a future researcher. Beyond your interests, look for a place where you will receive attention and time from your professors, and where you are likely to receive funding. A PhD is essentially work and demands a lot of time and effort; you should be awarded for it. [2] Despite many others differ from me about this, and without trying to be repetitive, you should really prioritize the programs you are going to apply. From the first pool of programs you chose, make sure you have five of them where most of your effort will go to. It's better to make solid applications for a limited number programs were you see real odds of both getting admitted and growing as a researcher. This will help you to dedicate enough time to prepare your essays and make a robust case of what you can wait from each program, and on what can you bring there. [3] Try and evaluate the real quality of you recommendation letters. Make sure that those recommending you can provide both a good and thorough description of you abilities. It takes more than a "big name" for a recommendation letter--it's better to have someone who can give insights on your potential based on detailed knowledge of your work, instead of someone who is known as a good researcher but that may give a mediocre letter (at the eyes of an admission committee). [4] Build new abilities in the meantime, and make an effort to improve your profile based on your rejections. There is a lot of randomness in admission, but you can learn from those getting admitted or ending their first year in those universities where you are planning to (re)apply. Check their CVs when possible, and see what can you improve in your formation to increase you chances of getting admitted. It's though and takes time, but you end up improving yourself in any case. [5] Make the best to not to compare yourself to others. This is discouraging in many cases, and it's unfair with yourself. Your process is yours only, and you should not measure your achievements as relative to others since they are most likely not comparable to you. [6] Finally, do your best to make your applications early and at the same time whenever possible. After that, just disconnect from it and take a vacation. We focus so much on the admission process, that we leave aside many things that are truly important, and start to stress unnecessarily way before results start to come out. At the end of the day it's worth remembering that the PhD will be roughly 5~6 period, so it's not a matter only of education but also a life changing decision. Don't rush it. I know these are not quite ortodox suggestions, but I found them to be helpful for me. Hopefully this will help you to keep going for it, and hopefully getting the expected result.
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 9 Jun 2020 I9 Jun 2020 Can anyone help me. It is now for two years that I am applying and getting all reject. My toefl score is 105 and gre is 162 quant and 152 verbal and 4 in AWA. My target is top 70 us universities. Is it my low gre quant score that cause me to be rejected from top 70. For the coming year I wanna apply again. If any one can comment on reasons of being rejected it helps a alot. Thanks.
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 24 Apr 2020 O24 Apr 2020 Does anyone have an idea whether the schools will be open in August - September? Maybe some news about distance learning??
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 20 Apr 2020 A20 Apr 2020 In normal times you have to think that the selection committee is looking for several things. Applicants have to have measurables past some internal hurdle. Once past that, the process is very unpredictable. They are looking to build a class, a cohort of people that will work together and have parallel but complementary traits. And on top of that they are looking for people who they think will actually accept. And the market on both sides suffers from a lack of information on what people are looking for. I've seen people on these boards with great self reported scores be rejected from multiple places. Others with below average scores celebrated multiple acceptances. This was all BEFORE the unprecedented world-wide pandemic which created uncertainty at all institutions. Try again, try better.
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 20 Apr 2020 O20 Apr 2020 Congratulations to people who got admission during this tough season. But if you have accepted the offer and plan to go, please decline offers and withdraw applications as soon as possible, especially for some schools that have not processed their second round offers. Lots of people still wait for the first admission at this moment, and declining other offers would not change your decision and career plan. Application fee is the sunk cost now, it should not influence your current decision. Thanks!
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 15 Apr 2020 15 Apr 2020 I don't know why people are waiting till the last minute to decline the offers. Have some respect for the waitlistees and decline the ones you won't attend to.
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 14 Apr 2020 14 Apr 2020 TPB: It depends on the specific program. Most programs will probably tell you that you will need to apply again, while others may tell you that you can defer admission but funding is subject to availability. The situation may differ this year due to the pandemic. If you are seriously considering doing this, then you should ask your institution.
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 14 Apr 2020 14 Apr 2020 Does anyone know how deferring admission works? Can I defer my admission and go next year with the same offer. Or will I have to apply again?
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 13 Apr 2020 U13 Apr 2020 To all: I have not heard from dream program yet and they never replied my email. Should I email their director informing my current offers and interests for attending their program? Need suggestions. Thank you guys.
All Economics, PhD (F20) Other via Other on 12 Apr 2020 12 Apr 2020 NY mayor announces that the schools will be closed until September and we’re only in mid-April... Looks like we won’t have face-to-face classes for a long time. Bad year to start a PhD, wish I had better and safer choices.
