- Does a UC3M PhD application require the submission of a research proposal?

- TPB. While the GRE might be optional, you should still submit your results as they may provide a positive signal. From my experience, strong recommendation letters from people who can actually assess your capabilities are the real key for a successful application. However, sending an additional signal with a 170Q GRE shouldn't hurt at all.

- Is anyone else applying for F21 extremely stressful? I have been kicking my own butt for the past 2 years to get into a good program and this is the year where I am applying again, now covid happens. I just took the GRE with 170Q and all the damn schools are now making it optional. Is this going to be a bloodbath??? How do I cope with this?

- TPB. I'd say that the GRE could still provide a good signal for adimission, given that your score is at least in the 97-98th percentile (166~167). In any case, I am leaning to think that some of these universities are "waiving" the GRE requirement because of the unusual conditions to take the test nowadays. Fall '21 admissions will most likely be quite different from previous years.

- Guys, does optional GRE really mean "optional" for econ Phd fall2021 application? Or is it always better to submit scores to be more competitive? Many thanks!!!

- TPB: My university is starting fully online this fall and new international students not currently in the US were already informed that we won't be able to do TA duties. We won't be receiving a stipend this semester for that reason. Every person knows what's better for him/her, but in my case, I don't want to let passing another year without starting a Ph.D. and will be attending online anyway.

- Those starting online PhDs in Fall 2020 intake , are your universities offering assistantship in the online option? Should i be taking online route if only tuition is waived and assistantship is not being offered until i reach campus? The other option is to defer to Fall 2021 but with uncertainity of funding

- I share similar views with guys below. If you are selected for admission in Econ PhD there is 70% chance you are capable of doing the coursework. But PhD is way beyond coursework and the first year is crucial for academic networking, mentoring as well as many other things that have mentioned already, I have been offered first semester through online and given option to resume regular studies in Spring 21. But there is absolutely zero guarantee USA will be able to open borders before mid-February (schools will close early in fall and begin earlier than usual in spring). Around winter, second or third wave of infection can exacerbate things. That will result pushing another semester online.
So if possible, defer your admission to Fall21 (with sincere apologies to the people who are going to apply for the first time in F21).
|US Unis||Economics, PhD (F20)||Other via Other on 28 Jul 2020 ||I||28 Jul 2020|
- I agree 100% with the guy below. 1st year of PhD is where you make a lot of good connections for lifetime work together. The quality of coursework will of course suffer. I think for those whose Unis that are offering the deferral, it is a no brainer. In the really long term, the 1 year delay will not matter but the quality of your experience and networks will surely will. The only reason I can think of enrolling in online PhD is if you are beyond a certain age, 27-28 in my opinion as it is already late. Rest, Best of luck. Cheers!

- TPB. Whether an online semester is adequate for a first year, may vary in part with specific attributes of the PhD program. I decided to defer my admission to F21 since I felt that an online semester (and probably a whole academic year) would most likely harm both my overall training and my ability to properly face a comprehensive exam. I know some have argued that this may severely impact the admission capacities for F21 in the US, but I think that we should take the decision that best fits our needs and expectations for a PhD.

- Hello everyone. Hope all of you are doing well. This has been a difficult 4-5 months for incoming international PhD students to USA. I have got a question for you folks. Since VISA restrictions are still in place and many departments are offering online only admission for time being, what do you guys think about starting the very first semester of Economics PhD? Is this a good idea (pros/cons). Personally I had 4 funded offers. 3 of them are starting full online for fall20, with options to defer to fall21. One only offered admission in fall21.

- TPB: We very well understand that applicants (especially international) will suffer this time. The funding for departments is cut and lot of students will defer so your chance of getting in are much lower as compared to a normal year. But at the same time, we have to do what is best for us as well. Remote learning is not what we expected when we applied and is certainly very risky for learning. It is PhD at the end of the day, not a mastrs course. Also it is difficult to accept with no funding. Hopefully, you will understand. My advice will be to keep a backup option this time when you apply.
