Hello!

Thanks for going through the trouble of reading this.

I will be applying for a Ph.D. in economics this fall. I need some help selecting grad schools to apply to. Suggestions from all around the world are welcome.

Type of Undergrad: B.S. Economics. Public University(USA)- ranked in the 210-220 range by econphd.net

Undergrad GPA: 3.96 right now.

Type of Grad: Micro Theory & Statistics for Economists (will be taking inFall 2007)

GRE: 800 Q / 570 V (Haven't gotten the AWA result yet)

Math Courses: (Math GPA 4.0 till now, Calculus I, II, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra, Differential equations, Discrete Math I and II, Taking Math Analysis in Fall 2007.

Econ Courses: GPA 4.0, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, Game Theory, Math Econ, Econometrics, International Trade

Other Courses: Political Economy of Terrorism, Classical Mechanics (Physics Class uses quite a bit of math), Java programming

Letters of Recommendation: Two Good ones I beleive, one should be from a well known prof. Working on the third one.

Research Experience: None, biggest drawback I think. :( I went into economics during the later part of my undergrad so getting research opportunities has been hard, it is also a fairly small dept in my school.

Research Interests: Development, Environmental, Macro & Monetary theory

SOP: An average one I believe. Have not written it yet.

1. What should I look for when choosing schools?

2. Please suggest some schools that match my profile. Links to rankings, other than econphd.net would be appreciated.

3. The schools I am looking at include umn, ut-austin, usc, ucsd, osu, univ of iowa, indiana, nyu.

Thanks a lot
