I really need some advice on where to apply and what are my chances.
First, a little about my background. I'm an international student, graduated in 2008 (bachelor's in Business Administration, top university in my country). Had random jobs (not math or business-related). But my passion's always been mathematics, so now I want to get a master's in applied math. Of course, I'd prefer PhD, but, being realistic, I never took any courses harder than Calc I.
Anyway, I've been studying for GRE subject for 3 months, literally learning everything for the first time. By the end of October I was pretty strong on Calc, my linear algebra and diff. equations were a bit rough though, and I didn't have time to cover topology and abstract algebra at all. I took TOEFL, GRE general and GRE subject. Here are my scores so far:
TOEFL - 106/120
GRE general - 61% verbal (my personal nightmare), 83% quant. (86% raw), 11% essay
GRE subject (took on Nov. 10th) - I doubt I'll get 60%. If I do, I'd be surprised.
So, with that in mind, what do you think of my chances of getting into a good school? Of course, I put away my dreams of Harvard/MIT/any Ivy League for a while, but what about, say, top 20-30? Or am I being too optimistic? What do you think?
P.S. We don't have a GPA grading system, but my math grades were excellent, and my average grade is approximately 3.3.
