    Thanks for posting your profile! I'm not quite sure how schools from India commute to the PhD programs, but it might be helpful if you had some idea of where your school has sent applicants before. I would guess that you would be competitive for quite a few top 30 schools, but aside from that I'm hoping someone with more experience can comment.

    I have learnt that profile evaluation for Indian master's students is very tough on online forums. I suggest you ask your professors (at what I think is DSE) where you would be competitive.

    That's true.
    Non-US programs are difficult to rank.
    I will speak with my advisors.
    Thanks for your help and feedback.

    What are your research interests though? That might help narrow down the list a little!

    You could consider Environment & Resource Economics specific programs too, if that's something you would see as better fitting than a more traditional economics program?
