I would advise you to work on your GRE. Q159 does not seem competitive even for medium-range schools. If you look at the GRE tables by intended major you will see that 30% of econ applicants have scores 165+. With such a solid mathematical background you can score 167+ with some practice. It seems like these standarized tests matter more for people from not-so-well-known unis and intentional applicants. V149 may also disqualify you straight away at some (many?) schools.
