Listed roughly in order of preference
1. Caltech  submitted
2. Princeton  rejected early February
3. UChicago  rejected January
4. Brown  rejected early February
5. UC Berkeley  submitted
6. UCLA  submitted
7. Cornell  accepted late January

9. Michigan  submitted
10. Georgia Tech  accepted late January
11. UW Madison  submitted
12. UIUC  submitted
13. Minnesota  submitted
14. Ohio State  accepted late December
Honestly don't know what to expect this year, maybe it's going to be more competitive than last year or maybe less so. Better safe than sorry, so I'm applying to as many as I can afford (the money and time). I think it's worth it, especially it means I can get into somewhere better.
Can I ask about the background of your recommenders?
Re: 2022 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
MIT, Princeton and I think Rice or UT Austin. Algebraic Geometry/Homological Algebra, commutative algebra/discrete geometry? and algebraic topology

Re: 2022 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
oh woops typo
I don't know if Irvine or UIUC is doing making offers (how would I know I'm an applicant not the admission committee?) check your spam to see if you received an email from secretary or chair with numerous PDF attachments

Re: 2022 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
This is interesting, upon checking my GRE scores on gre.org portal my percentile have changed from last time I saw it!!
(I kept a record of the score PDF so my eyes weren't playing tricks on me)

The percentiles do change occasionally. If future test takers tend to do better than you did, your percentiles will go down. Otherwise they will either go up or stay the same.

Notes: If the list above seems a bit unbalanced (w.r.t. "reach" vs "less reach" and so on), it’s because I decided not to apply to some places after getting into OSU, and withdrew from some others after UChicago. One of my professors warned me that some “very bright students" of hers applied to 20 schools last year and got rejected from all of them, and she didn’t know if this year would be as brutal. Thank goodness it seems not to be! Also, I’ve lurked this forum obsessively for the past several years, and it lowered my confidence a lot (of course, it’s only my fault for continuing to look at it). I spent days convincing myself that the acceptance letter from UChicago wasn’t a scam. It still feels like a dream, or maybe it's just a fluke. Don't be like me!
Re: 2022 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
Thanks! And regarding funding, they do discuss it (in the official acceptance letters, at least)! Feel free to PM me if you want any further details.

Re: 2022 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
Undergrad Institution: Top 50 (U.S), private. Top 75 in math.
Graduate Institution: Top 30 in math (U.S)
Major(s): BS in Mathematics
Major(s): MS in Mathematics
Undergraduate GPA: 3.81/4.0
Undergraduate math GPA:3.97/4.0
Graduate GPA:3.17/4.0 (this includes 2 Fs. This is explained in SOP)
Type of Student:Domestic, Male (white)

TOEFL Score: (xx = Rxx/Lxx/Sxx/Wxx) (if applicable)
Program Applying: Pure Math (Interest in Number Theory)
Research Experience: None
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Highest Distinction in Mathematics (undergraduate).
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Adjunct math professor at local 4 year college for 2 years. Taught statistics, probability (with calculus), and teaching calculus 1 and 2 for math majors. Also have 4+ years of tutoring work with company (for SAT, homework help, etc). Graduate teaching assistant for over 3 years. TA for abstract algebra, calc 1, calc 2. Grader for linear algebra, differential equations. Abstract algebra TA as an undergraduate.
Math Courses Taken: Graduate level: Abstract algebra, 3 commutative algebra, 2 algebraic number theory, linear algebra, measure theory, complex analysis, topology, algebraic topology, Galois cohomology. Undergraduate Level: Set theory, differential geometry, combinatorics, probability.
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Passed 5 qualifying exams (1 more than necessary) while in previous PhD program. These are in algebra, linear algebra, topology, real analysis, complex analysis. I also have a solid programming/computer science background (python, java, machine learning, algorithms, data structures, theory of computation).
Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: I was in a PhD program for 4 years, but because of mental health issues (imposter syndrome), I never did research or talked much to professors. I quit with masters, failing 2 courses in my last year due to depression. In my SOP I talk extensively about these issues and my personal growth these past 5 years, including all the tutoring and teaching I've been doing. How I've changed and why I'm more mature and ready this time. I have 2 undergraduate recommenders (they may be the strongest as they knew me the most), one from grad school, and one is from chair of current school I adjunct for.

I'm really not sure about my prospects. I haven't gotten an acceptance yet, so it's making me very nervous.

13. Minnesota  cancelled application
14. Ohio State  accepted late December declined offer
Honestly don't know what to expect this year, maybe it's going to be more competitive than last year or maybe less so. Better safe than sorry, so I'm applying to as many as I can afford (the money and time). I think it's worth it, especially it means I can get into somewhere better.

highly unlikely  so basically rejection ...
I know U Oregon and U Washington accepted 2 people (disjoint) at my school acceptances w/o funding, so that's basically a rejection too.

Re: 2022 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
Does anyone know what the average stipend is for UC schools? I got an offer for 23k for 3 quarters(summer not included) at UC Davis, which I thought was on the low side... I was wondering what offers other people got for California schools. Also, is it easy to get a position to teach over the summer to get some extra cash?

UCs are notorious for horrifically underpaying their grad students. They literally protested not too long ago because of the terrible pay. Summer instruction opportunities varies from department to department.

Re: 2022 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
Seeing that some of the programs I have not yet heard back from are offering waitlist positions to other applicants, I'm wondering whether there would still be a chance for me to be admitted (rather than being put in the waitlist if not rejected). In general, how does this work? I'm pretty confused.

Math GPA: 3.734/4, not official
Type of Student: Domestic, Male, White
GRE Revised General Test:
Q: 165
V: 165
W: 4.5
GRE Subject Test in Mathematics: Did not take
Program Applying: Some Math, some Statistics depending on department
Research Experience: No math REUs, I didn't start thinking about grad school until it was too late. One month with an Econ professor at my home school that was barely worth the mention in my SOP, just to check the box of "formal research experience." I submitted a draft of some stuff I was working on alongside each of my applications as a Hail Mary.
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Department award for each major. Scholarship from the Taiwanese government supporting a year of Chinese study over there... totally unrelated but might make the application unique. Magna cum laude. Little awards here and there.
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Tutored for my college's math help center for four semesters, mostly Economics but some Statistics too and Calc every so often.
Math Courses Taken: Calc track, linear algebra, abstract, elementary diff equations, PDEs, real analysis, complex analysis, numerical analysis, intro combinatorics, analysis of algorithms, plus several courses in probability, statistics, and financial math. Some Econ courses that could be considered applied math if you squint hard enough.
Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: Took the GRE for the Fall 2021 application cycle. I didn't make it in anywhere so I'm reapplying this cycle. Although I think I could have improved on my scores, I was ultimately a little too lazy to retake it. I only sent those GRE scores to programs that either required them or strongly recommended them.

Re: 2022 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
I think it matters for top schools, but not so much for less competitive schools. It is much easier to overlook a low overall GPA when most people's applications are missing something in a particular area than for the top schools where so many people have applications that are outstanding in all areas.Jerry99 wrote: ↑Fri Feb 04, 2022 8:06 pmI have the same overall GPA and major GPA as you!

Edit 1/27: Extremely excited about getting in somewhere. I did not think anyone would want me due to my unknown school and low overall GPA. I withdrew a few apps and deleted them from the list above.
