    Profile Evaluation for PhD Econ - Fall 2019

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hey guys,

    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%)
    Math Courses:
    Maths - I, Maths - II, Maths - III (covered Linear Algebra, Calculus, Numerical Methods) : First class with distinction
    Master's degree - 1st year GPA : 8/10
    Relevant Courses:
    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.

    Thank you!
