Letters of Recommendation: 1 assistant prof I RA'd for for two years (strong), 1 prof I RA'd for for 1 year (strong), 1 economist from federal reserve (strong)
Research Experience: 2 years RA experience in undergrad, mostly in economics department but also one semester in political science department. Two economics papers published from undergrad in which I am co-author with a professor. Also one summer at a Fed bank. Currently almost finished with my 1st year as a full time RA at a Fed bank.
Teaching Experience: None
Research Interests: Labor, health, TBD
I'll likely be spending one more year as an RA at the Fed, and applying for Fall 2020. Looking for advice on what levels of programs I should be targeting. Is top 25 out of my reach? My main concerns are some sub-par grades (B+'s in intermediate Macro, Probability, and Analysis), and lack of graduate coursework
