Ended up applying to:

DIMACS (graph theory/algorithm projects)

**GHOSTED**
UChicago REU (Mentioned interest in working with Laszlo Babai)

**REJECTED**
Yale SUMRY (Hypergraph container project), poked and

**REJECTED**
Carnegie Mellon SUAMI, Emailed by a prospective mentor asking about my interest in the program and I declined.

GaTech (Probabilitistic combinatorics with Warnke)

Ohio State

**WITHDRAWN**
Twin Cities, poked and was told first round offers are out and my chances of receiving an offer are slim, so

**REJECTED**
Maryland CS CAAR Reu

**ACCEPTED **
CUNY Baruch (graph theory and additive combinatorics), interviewed

,

**ACCEPTED **
Brown

**REJECTED**
UCLA RIPS,

**ACCEPTED **
For most of the programs above, I applied to projects relating to graph theory, combinatorics, theoretical computer science.

Year: Junior

Institution: Large public, not well-known for math.

GPA: 3.75

Letters: I submitted two letters for all of the programs I applied to. One of them is from my professor for undergrad analysis 1&2, where I got an A in both (he likes me so I think it will be a pretty good letter). My other letter is from my honors thesis advisor I have taken 4 classes with her (2 graduate-level), 1 independent study, and some research (we are finishing up a paper related to Ramsey theory).

Profile: By the time the REU takes place I will have completed: analysis 1&2, algebra 1&2, graph theory, combinatorics, graduate graph theory 1&2, graduate algorithm design & analysis (plus lower-level math courses). All A's in upper-level math courses, but some B's in lower-level math classes bc I was a lazy idiot. I am first-generation, which may help idk. I am hoping my strong-background in discrete math will help me get into REUs with projects in discrete math.
