Econ Courses: Honors micro/macro/metrics sequence, Game Theory, 1st year PhD micro/macro, A/A+ average
Letters of Recommendation: Main LOR from recently promoted full prof for whom I RA'd for about 1 year part-time (micro theory); seems to like me a lot. 1 LOR from junior TT faculty I RA'd for about 1.5 years part-time during 1st-3rd year ugrad (Applied/empirical). 1 LOR from game theory course, which I topped, instructor (senior tenured faculty).
Research Experience: 2.5 years part-time RA during ugrad. Did coding etc. for empirical RA, proofreading/literature review for theory RA.
Teaching Experience: None.
Research Interests: Micro Theory and Structural/empirical IO.
What range of schools should I aim for? I am willing to do full-time RA etc. to have a chance for top 20 US; any advice? Highly appreciate any comments/advice.
Thanks for replying. School has sent about 1-2 to top10-ish US schools per year, not many to T11+. Letter writers are all from Top 7 schools and I think the LORs should be quite decent, and pretty good in particular for the main one (letter writers are of different opinions regarding my chances, but main writer is optimistic about T20).
