Greetings to all the Econometrics Students!
Hello guys, my name is Vitraag Mehta and I am one of your Econometrics Stata TA's for Fall 2015. Additionally, I'm currently a Junior pursuing a double major with a B.A in Financial Economics and Mathematics along with a minor in Psychology. My long-lived collegiate ambition is to pursue the field of finance and climb up the ladder of the Wall Street. My main interests lie in Institutional Equities Research and Sales + Investment Banking. Apart from academia, you can find me singing a versatile genre of songs in different languages and styles (namely Indian and Western) be it a cappella or with accompaniments. You may also find me playing some intensely competitive table tennis.
As a sophomore, timidly going ahead to bravely embrace the challenge of taking Econometrics last semester, I believe I made one of the most crucially positive decisions in my collegiate career. The way Prof. Caetano designed this course opened up new analytical and systematic dimensions that catered to problem-solving in a rudimentary and fundamental sense. Despite the rigor of this course, if you keep up with the demands of this fairly candid course, it will be one of the most PRACTICAL skills that you will add to your collegiate experience. So just Keep Calm and Ace Econometrics. If you ever feel puzzled, you have a strong team of TAs to help you get right back on track!
My individual Office Hours are on Thursdays between 1-2 PM, Live Help (Stata) on Wednesday between 8-10 PM and Friday Recitations (selected weeks) between 4:50-6:05 PM.
I wish everyone luck and success!
