PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: Public university with a top 20 econ program. Math & Econ double degree Undergrad GPA: Overall 3.2 (3.7 my final two years); Econ 3.9; Math 3.2 GRE: 800Q, 550V, 4.5 AW Research Experience: Undergraduate honors thesis (which I think is stellar), currently a statistician for Dept. of Commerce since graduating in May LORs: Two of them great (my thesis advisors) and one probably mediocre, all from senior econ faculty Concerns: Math grades are all over the place... RESULTS: Acceptances: UVa, George Washington U Rejections: Johns Hopkins What would you have done differently? I originally got a 740 on my GRE, so I was sure I would have to reapply next year. Because I didn't want to put my recommenders through two rounds of 10 applications, I applied to just three schools. I retook the GRE a month later (in January) and got an 800, but it was too late to start applications to more schools. Also, I probably should have studied more than 30 seconds before the test for the verbal and AWS, if only for my own vanity. But one thing to keep in mind is that after an entire college career, there is only so much that is within my control. Most importantly, I would have spent more time on this forum before applying.
Accepts: Acceptances: UVa, George Washington U

PROFILE: Type of Undergrad: Good Latin American university Undergrad GPA: 15.4/20 Type of Grad: Good Latin American university Ggrad GPA: 8/10 GRE: 800Q 500V 4.0AWA TOEFL: 260/300 Math Courses (undergrad and grad): Calculus, Probability, Statistics, Real Analysis, Mathematical Economics (optimization and optimal control) Econ Courses(grad): Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Econometrics, Aplied Econometrics. Letters of Recommendation: 1 strong letter of recommendation from one very wellknown senior professor, 2 strong LORS from two assistant professors. Research Experience: Master's thesis, few working papers. Teaching Experience: TA (undergraduate), Lecturer (undergraduate) Research Interests: Macroeconomics. SOP: Explained why I wanted to pursue a PhD in economics. RESULTS: Acceptances: University College London (no $), Texas A&M ($$), UC Davis ($$), University of Virginia ($$), Arizona State University ($$$), UIUC ($$$, 1st year fellowship), Carnegie Mellon ($$$, 1st year fellowship). Rejections: UC San Diego, Brown University, UC Santa Cruz, JHU. Pending: Queen's University. What would you have done differently? I think LORs matter a lot, specially for international students (since one professor may recommend 4 or 5 students at the same time to the same university). I wish I applied to fewer safety schools.
