I am currently a 2nd-year Master's student at a top 5 college in my country.
Type of Undergrad: Engineering in Electronics & Communication from a virtually unknown Asian university.
Undergrad Percentage: First Class (62%)
Maths - I, Maths - II, Maths - III (covered Linear Algebra, Calculus, Numerical Methods) : First class with distinction
Master's degree - 1st year GPA : 8/10
Micro 1 - 9 (A+)
Macro 1 - 8 (A)
Micro 2 - 8 (A)
Statistics - 9 (A+)
Econometrics - 6 (B)
GRE : 160 V, 166 Q, 4 AWA
Internship Experience: Worked on applied micro
Letters of Recommendation: Three good letters.
My current program is specialized in environmental economics, but here on I am interested to pursue research in economic theory or macroeconomics. Will my econometrics grade significantly hurt my chances? I am trying to compensate for the low grade in this semester's econometrics course but I won't have that on my transcripts when I apply this year.
Do I have a shot at any of the top 50 US programs or should I try getting some research experience first before applying? I am not so keen on enrolling for another Master's program since time and money both are a constraint. Which schools should I be looking at? Any other suggestions are also welcomed.
