Hey everyone --

Its about the time where I have to decide what are reasonable places for me to apply for grad school for Fall 2014. This is mainly because I will be studying abroad in the fall and will have to get a lot of things done before I leave. I'm planning on talking to one of my professors soon about applying but I wanted to get some people's opinions on a tentative list of schools so far. I don't want my professor to think I'm way over-shooting when I talk to him! All opinions and pieces of advice are appreciated!

Undergrad Institution: Large State University, top 20 Mathematics PhD Program.

Major(s): Mathematics

GPA: 3.81. Math GPA is slightly higher.

Type of Student: Asian American Male

Program Applying: Pure Math

Research Experience: After this summer, I will have had two REUs. No publications from my REU last summer, but got to present at the JMM and at my university.

Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Normal honors list stuff. Some academic scholarships.

Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Private tutor and Grader for my school's math department (graded calculus, probability, number theory, and introduction to real analysis)

Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Am currently taking a graduate class in Complex Analysis. Other upper division stuff (on top of typical calc, linear algebra, etc) I've taken include two semesters each of algebra, analysis, topology (one in algebraic topology), and classes in stochastic processes, differential geometry, complex variables. I will have two famous mathematicians writing for me, one of which knows me rather well personally now.

Thanks!
