Where to apply with a low mGRE?

Post by yaskhn3 » Fri Nov 29, 2019 11:21 am

Undergrad Institution: Top 10 in India (Foreign)
Grad Institution: Cambridge University (Part III Master's Student) (2019-2020)
GPA:[ 9.6/10.0]
Type of Student: (International , Male)

GRE Revised General Test:[323]
Q: 169 (95%)
V: 154 (70%)
W: 4.0 (61%)
GRE Subject Test in Mathematics:[700]
M: (61%)

IELTS: 7.5 (L/R/W/S: 8/7/7/7)

Program Applying: (Pure Math Ph.D.)

Research Experience: 1. Indian Institue of Science: Worked on a problem to prove that Lagrange Interpolation on certain Sobolev type space is unstable under the H^1 norm

2. University of Delhi: Reading project on Theories of Integration

Awards/Honors/Recognitions: (Course Topper, College Topper, Top 10 in Uni (No of students=~2200) for all 3 years, British Petroleum Master's Innovation Program~45k pounds)

2.Resonance, Journal of Science Education

So I am mostly into Analysis and PDEs. I am taking all Part III courses in Cambridge on Analysis but won't have my transcript when I will be applying. But I am quite open to exploring other Pure Maths topics such as Number Theory, Algebra, etc. Can someone please recommend some schools that i can have a reasonable shot at?

I'm just saying, but I have seen someone with ~45%ish mGRE score got accepted to Berkeley in the admissions results.

For top 10 schools, if you don't have an 80%+ mGRE, you need to have something else exceptional to get in. Outside of top 10, you score may look ok if other aspects of your applications are strong.
