Looks like Princeton sent out acceptances today according to Grad Cafe. Good luck to everyone who applied there!

Heard nothing yet, and applied to Harvard, Yale, and Duke, all of which released acceptances today (according to the above posts). UPenn emailed me a few days ago and invited me to their open house - is this something that all applicants to Penn get, or is it an "interview" of sorts, or are both statements true?

Got an invitation to their open house along with them saying that they "plan to recommend" that I am admitted to their program, whatever that means...

Admitted to UCLA! Whew, so relieved to have been accepted to a great program this early into the cycle. Congratulations to everyone who got in!

Is it better to be ambitious and apply to top 10 meme schools with the very high probability of being rejected or is better to not apply to any meme schools and actually have a decent chance at admission?

Depends. If you can afford it and actually have a chance, apply to some meme schools. Don't apply *only* to meme schools unless you're very confident you're a top applicant or have a back-up plan (iirc you did something similar last year).

Also don't apply to schools where it's pretty obvious you're just giving them your money. Like I'm looking at the 2019 application thread and some people with a 40-something mgre are applying to Princeton and Stanford, like come on bruh you're not getting in.

Recommending you for admission basically means you'll get an offer - they have to get official approval from the dean of graduate studies usually, but that is mostly a formality. As long as you satisfy the basic requirements for admittance, you should be getting an offer. (E.g. most school require at least 3.0 GPA, or certain scores on TOEFL, etc.)

I'm sure they have other strong aspects of their application but I know those schools expect 80% at least. That's the impression I got when I called Vakil

It depends heavily on other aspects of your application. sub-80% doesn’t bar you from top places if you have other components that are absolutely stellar. (source: I got into two top schools so far with a ~ 70%)

Maybe if you didn't talk about how "graduate admission heads" told you that you shouldn't bother applying with a sub 80% he wouldn't have to.

I know it's still a little early, but anyone else yet to hear from any schools? I applied to 15 schools and have heard nothing yet, hoping for something this week.

I applied to more than 15 schools, all in pure math. Heard nothing yet.

Here's a fun problem my advisor gave me: Prove that $\mathbb{C}^2 \setminus \{(0,0)\}$ is not an affine algebraic variety.

Polynomials are continuous functions so affine varieties since they are intersections of preimages of a closed subset must be closed. That is not closed, so it can't be an affine variety.

Polynomials are continuous functions so affine varieties since they are intersections of preimages of a closed subset must be closed. That is not closed, so it can't be an affine variety.

This works for showing that it's not an affine variety in affine 2-space but how about for your affine n-space? I should've clarified that i'm thinking about affine n-space. There's a more general solution that's pretty gnarly.

If you think about $\mathbb{C} \setminus \{0\}$ in affine 1-space, then you don't get a variety. However, in affine 2-space, its a projection of $1-xy$ onto it's $x$ coordinate.

I'm just tryna help Mr. Scholze calm down. I'm under the impression that a bunch of people are going to start showing off how much math they know.

Let's not despair, people. True beauty lies in mathematical revelation. Therein, we shall find ways to fill the void in our souls -- a void left by our perpetual insecurities about our own intelligence. That is something no admissions offer can do.
