Hey guys ! Don't want to bother everyone with a profile evaluation. I wanted some graduate students or people who know graduates or even people working or have some relation with admission committee to direct me on what is the best way to achieve my goal.
My goal : Being admitted for a phD in pure math (most likely mathematical logic track).
My background : Master and engineer degree in computer science in an international school ( in Europe ).
Situation : Living in the US under a green card, working for 8+ years, Do not have any recommendation from my past school because it wasn't pure math. I can probably get 2 recommendation letters from phD in computer science that work with me in a software company.
1) Apply for a phD in some schools ( if people knows what are reach, and safety schools for logic track it would help me, I just found a ranking in google )
2) Apply for a masters with the goal of applying for a phD later on.
What sensible choice would put me closer to my goal ? ( If you have any other alternatives I am open to them )
