Hey everyone! I wanted to get some second opinion about the strength of my profile and which programs I would get into.

Undergrad Institution: Top 10 in India (Foreign)
Grad Institution: Cambridge University (Part III Master's Student) (2019-2020)
Major(s):[Math]
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)

Papers: (2): 1. Math Student, Indian Mathematical Society Journal
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?

Applying to Where: (Color use here is welcome)

Princeton
MIT
Yale
UCLA
UCB
Brown
Chicago
Michigan
UW Madison
Maryland
UIUC



I would really appreciate your help and feedback!!


Your chances at top elite schools are most likely nil given you bad GRE scores and the fact that you're international male. You'll be competing among other international males, not among US students. In fact, your schools are pretty mismatched with you profile. Schools ranked around 50 are probably your match.

Hard disagree with this. Cambridge Part III is good enough for people to ignore your subpar mgre score.

Cambridge part III starts in October, while admissions are due in December of January, so it is useless in terms of graduate admission unless you wait another year. The quality of Cambridge part III is very good, by its admission is not competitive at all, it by itself is not going to be very helpful.

In fact, the original poster has been rejected by UIUC, probably one of the least competitive schools in his list.
