Just out of curiousity, are you looking to do some stochastic analysis in mathematical finance?
Thanks!
Haha yeah more or less! Where did you apply, if you don't mind my asking?

You should think carefully before declining Wisconsin, everyone I know would agree that it's a better school than UIUC.

GRE Subject Test in Mathematics:
M: 610 (39%)
Program Applying: Pure math Ph.D. (mostly Algebra/Number Theory), but also some programs in mathematics education.
Research Experience: Honors Senior Thesis in mathematics education over the course of two semesters. Also, an independent study in my school's physics department over the course of 3 semesters and one summer (full time) doing statistical analysis and Matlab coding
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Merit-based scholarship for excellent achievement in mathematics awarded by my department. Dean's list each semester
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Tutor in our department's math center since spring sophomore year (5 semesters total) and undergraduate TA for four semesters (intro statistics, advanced calculus-based probability, and intro calculus). Also spent two summers working as a camp counselor / teaching assistant at an advanced math summer camp for middle schoolers from NYC, as well as one summer working full time on independent research project mentioned above. Active member for my school's math club and AWM chapter.
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: I know my rec letter senders very well (one was my research adviser, another I've had in three different linear algebra classes, and the third is a professor I'm fairly close with). Also taking two grad courses in Algebra and Analysis this spring.
