In my opinion, this is a rare case where the candidate would be justified to invest 1-2 extra years to get into a higher ranked PhD program.
    I was just wondering.. Would writing about the online economics courses and books in my SOP make my profile stronger? Also, I would write about my MS project in detail. Do they look at the grades and transcripts or the syllabus covered/ materials read?

    (Also, I'm a girl :P)
    Thanks

    Certainly mention online economics courses and books. It will help (at least a little) establish that you do know the basics of economics.
