    What do you think about U Illinois Champaign, Georgia State U, Drexel U, Amherst, Arizona State U, and Southern Methodist U? I can recommend others too, but these schools offer funding for the vast majority of if not all incoming PhD students... and the admission rates can be up to 20% at some of these schools... you could check out their websites for a better picture too!

    Also U of Connecticut and Ohio State U since you have very good GRE scores.

    Amherst does not have a PhD program in economics (or other fields; it's a liberal arts college). Drexel has a tiny economics PhD program, housed within its business school, and would be a very different experience than a place like UIUC or ASU. SMU does not have a field in behavioral economics and I can't think of anyone on the faculty there who does research or publishes in the field.

    TAMU and University of Pittsburgh would both make sense, given the OP's interests.

    I think dogbones may have meant UMass-Amherst. If that is the case I would avoid the program. It is considered a heterodox program, and while it is the best heterodox program in the country and they do give solid training in mainstream econ, when all is said and done, going to a heterodox program severely limits placement opportunities after graduation. (If you look at placements on their website it only lists university/institution placed at without either a name or a title or specifying which are not for TT postions, which I have found usually means that a number of those placements, especially the more impressive looking ones, are actually for post-doc or adjunct or other non tenure track jobs).
