Pros - Access to wonderful faculty who are very helpful. Some are more accessible than others but overall in my field everybody is super nice. - Great peers and most of whom you will have a great time talking about Economics or anything under the sun Cons - Pressure to match up with your excellent peers and earlier students who have done exceptionally well

The Harvard economics PhD program is great training overall. The other students are wonderful, and so are much of the faculty. The downside relative to some other programs is the lack of structure advising guidance after the second year. This is both a blessing and a curse.

The economics PhD program definitely requires lots of work, but in the meantime, people get very good support from faculty members and colleagues. Most professors are willing to spend time with their advisees and to discuss research ideas.
