This should actually be the 2019 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results. The 2018 one can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3867 and was for last year’s profiles and results. I’m not sure why they never stickied it...

Undergrad Institution: Clemson University
Major(s): Mathematics
Minor(s): None
GPA: 3.09/4
Type of Student: Domestic White Male

Grad Institution: Clemson University
Major(s): Mathematics
GPA: 3.89/4

GRE Revised General Test: Taking soon.
Q:
V:
W:

GRE Subject Test in Mathematics: Taken 9/15/18.
M:

TOEFL Score: N/A

Program Applying: Pure Mathematics Ph.D.

Research Experience: Independent study in algebraic topology with my advisor, an independent study in representation theory with an algebraist in our department, and a masters project on characteristic classes with my advisor. Also did a semester long research project in graph theory during undergrad.
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Dean's List twice in undergrad. Had 4.0's in all my semesters as a graduate student except for a summer mini-mester.
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: TA (2 years), Grader (3 years), Instructor (1 year).
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: I know my recommenders extremely well, and some of them have connections at many of the universities I'm applying to. My first two letters will come from my advisor and my representation theory mentor, and I expect their letters to be strong. My last letter will come from the professor of my year long graduate algebra course, which I did extremely well in, and I expect that letter to be very good. I'm sure they will all mention how motivated I am as well. Attended a summer program on algebraic geometry/topology at the University of Chicago and a graduate student geometry/topology conference at UIC.
Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your Application and Might Matter: Many graduate courses in addition to the year long algebra sequence, in particular functional analysis, measure theory, complex analysis, algebraic number theory, and commutative algebra, with A's in each of these. Currently sitting in on a point-set topology course taught by my representation theory mentor, as I never took that and am just wanting to fill in that gap in my knowledge. I was very lazy during undergrad, which mainly stemmed from my severe depression, but I am much more mentally healthy, focused, and determined nowadays.

Applying to Where:

University of Utah
University of Oregon
University of Illinois at Chicago
Georgia Institute of Technology
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
University of Virginia
University of Georgia
Brandeis University
Tufts University
University of South Carolina
