Really need some suggestions on program choosing. My home school has generally good reputation I think, but bad in mathematics (No PhD program). One of my professors told me that I could get into nearly all schools after T15, while another one told me to focus more on schools after T25. I am wondering whether I really have a chance to get into any reach/match programs or may end up going to my safety schools? Thanks a lot!
