Abstract

This paper seeks to identify the characteristics of applicants to
graduate school in economics that predict successful job placement after
completion of graduate school. Although there is considerable uncertainty in
predicting the success of prospective Ph.D. students, the results indicate that
GRE scores, reference writers, and admissions committee ratings are significant
predictors of job placement.
