Cornell vs Wisconsin - Algebra

Post by math94 » Fri Mar 16, 2018 1:39 pm


From the 2018 admissions thread, it looks like several people have been faced with this decision. What do you think of Cornell and Wisconsin for algebra, especially near algebraic geometry/topology and commutative algebra?

Both are great programs for Algebraic Geometry but Wisconsin is better. In terms of Category Theory and Homotopy Theory, Wisconsin is non-existent while Cornell has a few people.
