What do you think my range should be? I just found this forum and find it very insightful. I'm somewhat concerned about the obvious lack of math and a bit low QGRE. It's probably too late to change anything so where do you think I can reasonably expect to get in given what I have. Staying in school for one more year is not really an option for me. Thank you all for your help.

You would probably be a good bet for other Canadian programs. Queens, Macgill, Carleton should be feasible options.

Thanks for your comment. What about US PhD programs?

I think you need to take more pure math: Linear Algebra, Calc III, Diff EQ, Analysis. I think it might be hard to get into a PhD program with only applied math in econ courses.
