However, you can sneak in as an applied math masters student, get full funding, and start off with graduate pure math courses.
The applied math program is not very strong so you can easily get in. However, their pure math PhD program is fairly strong (I still think you have a chance) but, if you are interested in Algebraic Geometry, UIC is tough to get into as their Algebraic Geometry is top 10.

I'm sure, even if I attend such a program, my chances of attending a pure math graduate school at a better school will be higher. But yes, you're right, I could try sneaking in a few applications to applied math/mathematical physics programs just to keep an option or two open for me.
My research interests aren't well defined (see the list) but I'll be looking to apply to study analysis at graduate school. Which particular stream? I don't have a lot of idea right now and I think I need more training to be able to make a choice on this front.
What do you think if I apply to the program with the intention of specializing in analysis?

They have strong Topologists. A few that come to mind are David Dumas, Laura Schaposnik, and Louis Kauffman. If you are into Algebraic Topology, they have Brooke Shipley and Ben Antieau.Junaid456 wrote:I was referring to getting into some middle tier master's only program in pure mathematics.

You should be able to get into the analysis program just fine. I am not sure if there are many opportunities for Analysis in pure math so you could probably just ask one of the Analysts at UIC if you should apply as applied math or pure math.

Talking about group 1, 2 and 3 schools, the most recent rating I saw online was the 2011 rating. Is it still valid?
