Looks good, but I hear that many top econ programs want a solid real analysis background. Complex analysis and topology also seem like must-haves for top 10 programs. Looks like you have solid stats training with econometrics though.
You don't use Complex Analysis ... at all in economics.
The real analysis is covered by the fact that he did well in PhD Micro I and II. I took the Micro sequence as an undergrad (was a math/econ + psych double) and RA was crucial there. If the OP passed Micro with an A, then they'd get a strong grade in undergrad Real Analysis.
Topology is also not needed if the OP's taken all the doctoral cores and done well.
