University Of Rochester(Economics, PhD (F18)Accepted via E-mail on 14 Apr 2018 I14 Apr 2018
  • I have just declined a funded offer from University of Rochester. My impressions after talk with some Professors is that the Department of Economics is an outstanding department. The Professors are very close to students, they intend to contract two full Professor to compensate the leave of Yongsung Chang (he is leaving for personal reasons). For those in interest in Macroeconomics and are in the waitlist for Rochester, I was told by faculty members that Professors Mark Bills and Narayana are completely immersed in the graduate program, which means they are active in research and are willing to be advisors. One member of the faculty of Rochester, told me that Narayana could be more selective in choosing students to work with him, but he is so open that virtually all students who desire to work with him are accepted. Currently, there are two students working with him and he is also involved in the creation of a department of public policy in University of Rochester, which will be a great opportunity for those looking to work as RA and bring visiting scholars to the department of economics. There are also other outstanding members in the Macro body (e.g., Yan Bai). The placement of University of Rochester is also pretty good and in my personal opinion is better than in other similar departments in the top 10 - top 20 cohort. In the last a student got a position in NYU. Just to finish, the grade of the course is really something that attracted me a lot, since they have in the first year besides the core courses (Macro, Micro and Econometris), Math course during the first year. The Professor of the Math course in the first year is Hard, who is know as being a outlier in Math and able to teach everything that students demand. This is something good, since I would like to study Math more deeper and the department I am going there is no all these courses in the first year and I will have some TA responsibilities during my first year, which means it is harder to deal with 4 courses per semester. I am talking more about Macro, since this is the field of my interest, but for those waiting for Rochester I think is interesting know that they intend to become even stronger in Macro and Theory, since this is the tradition created by Lionel McKenzie and they intend to invest even more in both fields. Apparently the department has a vey close relationship between students and Professors and they are committed in develop their program and become even more in research. Just to finish I think for those waiting and who consequently get the offer you can go there with any kind of concern in your mind, since this is a very good department. I was really in doubt between go there or to UC San Diego or UCLA. At the end I had made my mind to go to Rochester because UC San Diego is very good in Econometrics and since I am interested in Macro, have the opportunity to work with Narayana is something unique. UCLA in general is better ranked, but their funding was vey poor to the expensed I would have in LA. Good luck to those on the WL, and when they get you the offer go without any doubt, it is a top-natch department. I hope this information help people in doubt about the quality of Rochester.

  • Probably they will send the offers as people decliine.I think I got the offer of the guy who said had declined. Until the beginning of next week, Monday, they will send the offers. Historically there are cases they send the offer even in April 15 th. Luckily I hadn’t accepted any offer I had already. But I think people in the WL have just to wait cause even today maybe some people will decline

University Of Minnesota(Economics, PhD (F18)Accepted via E-mail on 12 Apr 2018 I13 Apr 2018
  • Just to clarify to the person who asked if I had received an email asking about my interest in remaining in the WL. The answer is no, but at the end of March I sent them an email inform them I had received some offers and thar among these offers UMInnesota was my first option and that if I received an offer I would go immediately. That is why I think they did not send the email for me, cause they already knew my position.

Binghamton University - The State University Of New York(Economics, PhD (F18)Other via Other on 12 Apr 2018 O12 Apr 2018
  • To the person below with no information on funding. I am assuming you were admitted but did not hear from the department about funding. If you want to go to Binghamton, definitely pay your deposit by 4/15. Otherwise, the offer will acceptance offer will go to someone on their waitlist. If you did not hear about funding it is likely they simply do not have any funding to offer to you (otherwise they would have done so).
