    You don't want to be in a finance program if you aren't interested in finance research. What did you do as an RA? Do you understand finance research at all?

    You can spin finance stuff into other areas, but it may not get into top journals. I am not sure that you would be more competitive for finance programs. The letters from finance people help, but that is all that stands out.

    Having letters from b-school professors isn't a sufficient reason to apply to a different discipline from your actual interest.

    You should apply to the top 15 econ programs and HKS/Harris Public Policy. Berkeley Haas BPP is worth considering but I suspect it''s not as good a fit as Berkeley economics. You could also consider Stanford GSB Political Econ over EAP, because EAP is too theory-oriented for you.
