Berkeley game theory老师关于申请的一段话

From reasons that will take too long to explain, my advice to the very best students (those who I’m certain will get into a top 5 school) is to apply to the ALL top 25 schools). To students that are near the top, I advise to apply to 35-40 schools. I know that applying is costly, but it’s a very good investment. I hope it’s helpful.

Warald不点评海申这种策略了,估计现在是个人都申请很多学校吧,这年头还敢只申请个把学校的,估计只能是高人、赌棍或者傻子了。另外,game theory一般是economics专业的课程吧?这个专业竞争也大,可能老师是站在这个角度写的,或者侧重phd?

总的来说,Warald不认为需要像这个老师说的这么疯狂申请,去年我在博客里也写过一篇文章《master是不是海申狂申广撒网就能确保成功了?》。Warald感觉这背后传递的消息是:这年头申请竞争太激烈了,即使你有进前5名学校的实力,也得扩大考虑的学校范围。
