I wonder how much the reputation of the undergrad institution can hurt an application to a top program in pure math phd. I hear GPA, recommendations, number of advanced courses taken and grades in such advanced courses, all are very important for evaluation, however all these are strictly dependent upon the quality of the undergrad institution. Does good math gre remedy such problem if any. thanks
A good MGRE score does almost nothing to help the rest of your profile. If you look through the admission threads, there are a few with 90+ percentile but rejected due to e.g. poor undergrad grades.
