Hi,guys, i am a upcoming senior, i just got declined from waterloo's pure math master program (spring entry),
do any of you know an approximate score requirement for waterloo, or u of totonto?
My interest field is Analysis and PDE，but since i have backgroud in CS, so computational math could be a choice.
I wish i can get some advice for a program list (matching schools), thanks!

Type of Student: international asian Male
Q: 169 （96%）
V: 158 （80%）
Math Subject Test: 780 (75%) i still have 2 chances in Sep and Oct to improve
Program Applying: Mathematics Ph.D.(US) or masters (international)
Research Experience: fractional pde, stochastic equation, some combinatorics, fourier analysis and orthogonal polynomials
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Dean's List, scholarships, 7th place on a math challenge out of 71 teams
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: TA for a few semesters, currently working on thesis, passed an acturary exam; chess club president, math honor society vp, do not have REU but spend one semester in UCL,did a decent job.
Oxford (OMMS) (master)
U of chicago (phd)
Michigan annabor (phd)
sort of reach:
u of toronto (master)
U of north western (phd)
ohio state (phd)
wisconsin madison (phd) one of my letter writer got his phd here
u of utah (phd)
u of iowa(phd)
(i am adding some safety school below, please let me know if they are viable)
2. case reserve
3. u of pittersbeurg
Honestly, i am not sure if this list fits best, as i did not investigate much safety options and my previous application indicates this whole process is filled with uncertainty; is it better to simply try more schools?
How do you guys think of this list? is this realistic? do you guys have other ideal programs? appreciate it!
