You might want to also throw in some non-"top" programs in the US.
Type of Undergrad: Top 10 school in my country (east Asia)
Undergrad GPA: BS: Physics, GPA: 83/100 (~3.3),
Type of Grad: MS: physics, Top 1 graduate school for science and engineering my country.
Grad GPA: GPA: 81/100 (~3.1), Most of my graduate study courses are computer science although I'm majored in astrophysics which makes my GPA pretty low, because at the beginning I plan to be a programmer.
My graduate school does not seem to have some GPA inflation, some courses might have average score at C of the total class and high rate of fail. And there is not a ranking, no one in a class take the same curriculum at all !!
I've taken 3 introductory courses in economics, all above A.
GRE: V420 + Q800;
Math Courses: Probability A, Calculus I, II, Algebra, Complex analysis, Differential equations, etc.. lots of
Econ Courses: Introduction to finance A, I've learned myself courses in intermediate econometrics and macro/microeconomics.
Other Courses: Accounting A, Marketing A, lots of CS courses.
Letters of Recommendation: 1 econ prof, 1 physics prof
Research Experience: I've worked with a professor research in financial markets, no publication, 6 monthsOne paper (1st author) in Top 8 journal in the field of astrophysics/astronomy, another paper is 2nd author on Top 5 journal.
Research Interests: Macro
Apply to: Mphil/PhD programs, especially in europe,
Since my GPA is not so well and lack economics research experience, Top program in US might not be considered, so I plan to study in Europe.
Would you suggest me to take some courses next semester, but if I take the courses next semester it would not be showed on my transcripts.
Would you give me some suggestions, thanks very very much.

Do you have any idea that some not-bad European programs receive students without a economics degree? (Outside UK, because I hope to got financial aid or no tuition fee. )
