Princeton UniversityEconomics, PhD (F21)Wait listed via E-mail on 19 Feb 2021 A20 Feb 2021
  • I was also waitlisted and do not understand this. If they don't rank waitlisted candidates how do they choose if only a couple of spots open up? I don't have more info on the size of the waiting list.

  • Congrats to those accepted. Does anybody know the size of the waiting list? Somebody below said that they have offered to 50 applicants and there is about 1/3 cut in comparison to previous years (can anyone else confirm?). That is good news to waitlisted applicants; however, I think it is important to know how many of us are on the waiting list. I myself emailed and asked about the size of the waiting list and my position on it. They replied that they do not rank waitlisted students, but they did not say anything about the size. Finally, are there anyone with an offer from Princeton who is going to decline? Thanks in advance.

  • Dear future professor of our Department: (Of course this line was just for me, but the rest is also for others) Thank you for applying to Princeton University's Graduate School for the 2021-22 academic year. While I assure you that the materials you submitted were carefully reviewed by the faculty in the Department of Economics, I regret to inform you that the department did not recommend your admission for the coming academic year. The number of admission offers available at Princeton for entering graduate students is extremely limited, and we cannot offer admission to all applicants who are well qualified. Indeed, many departments consistently have applicants who would be admitted without hesitation if additional resources were available. Our decisions take into account not only the applicants' merits but also the suitability of the programs to the candidates' expressed interests. Our goal is to achieve a sound match between the strengths of our programs and the interests of the relatively small number of outstanding students that can be accommodated. Unfortunately, due to the volume of applications which we receive, it is not possible for the department or the Graduate School to go back and review applications to justify the denial or offer advice on fortifying a future application. I wish you success in your plans for graduate study and thank you for considering Princeton University.

  • I am a pre-doc at top5 and my letter writers are affiliated with 3 top5s separately, I got into none, not even a top 20.

  • RIP for me, lucky for those of you who could leverage your connections. i am a full-time RA for a full tenured prof at a T3 and they couldn't get me in into their program and I'm getting smashed at all other T10s.

  • Same as poster below, only got accepted to top schools were my letter writers worked at (this year it was probably extra hard to get into top schools without your advisors calling their friends due to reduced spots (Harvard wtf)). Definitely hard to justify to other international students who I’m sure are very gifted but lack connections. Secretly relieved I was not accepted to top2 schools and ‘forced’ to choose them because of their ranking, the program I’m attending (solid top 7) is in my opinion the best fit for me.

  • Among top 5, I was accepted precisely to the schools in which my letter writers are (or were) faculty members and rejected otherwise (even from the schools generally considered lower in rank). Really, admission to top schools is becoming more and more about the connections of the letter writers. I acknowledge that I benefited from this system, but am not sure if this is healthy for the future of economics academia.

Princeton University, Yale UniversityEconomics, PhD (F21)Accepted via Other on 19 Feb 2021 O19 Feb 2021
  • I got accepted into both programs and asked them how many students they admitted. Princeton accepted exactly 50 students, and Yale accepted slightly more than 50. That is a 33% drop from roughly 75 admits in the previous year. There could be a slight decrease in cohort size, but not much, so that means there might be a slightly higher probability of being accepted off the waitlist. However, given the special situation of this year (especially Harvard only admitting 1/4 of class size), I suspect the yield rate for both schools would be higher. Hope that helps!
