The advice about real analysis that you read applies to US undergraduates, and US undergraduates only. You're absolutely fine.
I'm planning on applying to US PhD programs this fall. I am currently enrolled in a top masters in economics program in Canada. I have done well in all the few math courses I've taken (A+ in calc 1-3, lin alg, ODE) but I have not taken a course in real analysis. I am wondering how much this will hurt me if I'm applying to top 20 US econ PhD programs? Will good grades in my masters program and strong letters be able to make up for not having a real analysis course? I have been told by my advisors that I have a strong profile for top 20 programs, but I am worried by what I have read online about the importance of real analysis in admissions.
The math camp for my masters program covered some topics in real analysis (set theory) and the courses involve a lot of proof writing, but I don't have a great sense of how US programs view the top Canadian masters programs.
Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks.
