At your EU Masters, what are the placements like? If you perform well, you can pretty much expect similar placements of past candidates.
I'm looking to apply for a PhD Econ or PPOL program this year, and I've whittled down a list of appx. 30 programs for application. Based on my profile, I'd love both a standard 'chances' eval, as well as some recommendations for programs I should absolutely cut from my list (ie. my profile isn't good enough). I plan on sending about 20 applications and want to live in a decently-sized city (350k+ pop, ideally) for my PhD.
