Hello EE friends,
I need help solving this sample circuit for class. The photo transistor is responding to a 5khz photodiode not shown. I need help solving out for the output voltage.

You did not mention the bandwidth of the signal applied to that circuit. For circuits with reactive devices, you should consider the impedance in function of the frequency of the signal. Moreover, in your above calculation, it is not clear if you're aware of the maths that should be used: You cannot algebrically add a resistence with reactance, but

You are calculating the ac resistance. There are lots of transitor parameters that will change between DC and AC situations. One basic difference will be due to the complex part of the transition impedance of the transistor. For example if the impedance is in the form of Z=R + jwX, since the latter part is frequency dependent, you will see differen

A transistor has exponential transconductance. Then without any negative feedback when the signal level is low the output is fairly linear but at high levels it is extremely distorted even if it is not clipping.
An opamp can have a wide frequency response at low output levels but at high output levels its slew rate limits its high frequencies.

Your circuit is absolutely symmetric. But the startup needs sone unsymmetry. In real world every capacitor differs from the other, every transistor differs from the other...
You can give your circuit a kick start with a pulse or just make it a little unsymmetric..
Try it and tell us if you see any difference.

I presume, you are reporting simulation results. Wouldn't it be appropriate to analyze the simulation in detail, e.g. look at individual transistor voltages and currents in the transient analysis to find out why the circuit doesn't behave as expected?

Since I thought this good question deserved a better answer when I looked again on ETO, so I copied my answer here.
I don't see it as a bad design.
I rather think it is a fairly good design that needs to be analyzed with experience.
It is just an analysis of a non-inverting High-side switch.

It depends on the tools and PDK. Some PDK's have different transistors in the library for monte carlo simulations. In other PDK's it's an option in the transistor properties.

in all of your considerations you are mixing STATIC resistances and DYNAMIC resistances. For a good understanding of transistor functions it is very important to note that each transistor is a non-linear device.
And in those cases it is always necessary to discriminate between differential (dynamic) and static resistances.

Because the operation is not small-signal, traditional
noise analysis is likely unhelpful.
Your output jitter is likely to be dominated by things
other than intrinsic transistor / resistor noises. Even if
these devices have proper noise params for the transient
/ pnoise to work, they are trivial contributors relative to
input supply noise, ground
