I've instructed Finance Theory I and II several times and have extensive experience as a TA Research Interests: Corporate Finance, slightly biased to empirical SOP: I highlighted the fact that I worked at an investment bank prior to my academic interest, found some interesting questions that this experience had given me Other: International student, RESULTS: Acceptances: Columbia GSB Finance & Economics (attending), UCLA Anderson, CMU Tepper, London Business School, Yale SOM, Boston College (interview), UBC Sauder Waitlists: Rejections: MIT Sloan, Chicago GSB, Stanford GSB, Kellogg, Berkeley Haas, NYU Stern, Duke Fuqua Pending: Harvard GSB What would you have done differently?

Mr.Keen 2008:
Schools: Top econ undergrad from Mexico, Masters from unknown US department, graduate summer at Duke. Major: Economics. Now taking maths while working fulltime for the fed. GPA: Undergrad: 81/100 (tough program). Grad: 3.8, 4.0 at Duke. GRE: Q=790, V=550, AW=3.5 Courses: Economics: up to grad level micro, macro, econometrics (mostly A's on gradlevel, B's and C's in undergrad) All the standard field courses you take in a top latin american undergraduate program: IO (Tirole), International Trade (Feenstralevel material and Helpman and Krugman), Public Finance I and II (Musgrave & Musgrave, Rosen), Open Macro (mostly journal articles, Sebastian Edwards' book on RXR). Statistics: Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics, 3 theoretical econometrics (Greene was the textbook in all three). Applied econometrics, applied timeseries. Mathematics: Calc I and II, Logic and Proofs, Linear Algebra, Numerical Optimization, Introductory Real Anlaysis, Dynamic Optimization (Continuous and discrete), C's in easiest, A's on the hardest. Research: Published paper in exchange rate error correction modeling. Working paper on international real business cycles (research sample). Working paper on growth and space. Several Fed publications. TA: TA in intro Macro, International and Development. letter of recommendation: Two Duke professors (tenured with strong publication record). One respected Fed economist. Another professor from the Duke summer program. All of them very strong, I think. SOP: I explained the wholes in my application and stressed the strengths. I tried to signal that I know what I am getting into. In cases where it made sense I mentioned faculty members I would like to work with. I mentioned specific topics I am interested in studying. Interests: Open Macro, International Trade, Growth and Applied IO Schools: Chicago Northwestern (Finance at Kellog) NYU Yale MIT (Financial Econ at Sloan) UT Austin Minnesota Duke Stanford My Concerns: My low undergraduate grades. I hope the coursework at Duke and research experience can compensate for those. I expect the recommendations to be superb, so that must help. RESULTS In: UT Austin (funding decision pending), Chicago (Level 1 funding) Waiting list: Minnesota No news: Yale, NYU, Stanford, NWU Kellogg, MIT Sloan Rejections: Duke What would you have done differently?: Nothing, really. I did my best to make up for the effects of past mistakes and it paid off. NB: I must add that those Bs and Cs in undergrad are in no way compared to their American counterparts. Beyond principles of micro and macro, I don't know what a course in economics without calculus is. My intermediate micro textbook (in my junior year) was MWG.
