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.
