Test Scores: Due to the Pandemic I couldn't take the GRE.
Recommendation Letters: I am able to get good recommendation letters from my professors in my university including the professor I did my research paper under.
Research Experience: I have worked as a research assistant for 6 months and have written 2 papers alone with only some guidance from my supervisor, one of which got published. The thing is its just Chemical Graph Theory and I don't think the research is anything particularly impressive, my paper got published in the journal of Symmetry this year.
Research Interests: My interests lie in Algebraic Combinatorics and Graph Theory and am also open to Algebraic Geometry
Here are the schools I am applying to and would like to know if my expectations are realistic (with the exception of Harvard and MIT for which I know my chances are extremely slim):
- Brown University
- Tufts University
- Brandeis University
- Northeastern U
- UMass Amherst
