Undergrad Institution: Well known, not ivy, not amazing for math research but not bad either (though my advisor has told me that he knows of no one who has gotten into a T10 program from this institution in the last 15 years ). Known for grade deflation
Majors: Double majored in math and physics
GPA: 3.83
Math GPA: 4.0
Type of student Domestic White Male
GRE Did not take
Program Applying: Pure Math, mainly focused on geometry and mathematical physics
Research Experience: Two research projects in physics, no publications, writing an honours thesis on the geometry of gauge theory that is essentially a textbook (currently sits at 180 pages)
Math Courses Taken: Multi, Odes, Linear Algebra I and II, Differential Geometry of curves and surfaces, discrete maths, Real Analysis I/II.
Graduate Courses Taken: Grad QM I and II, Grad EM, Quantum Field Theory I and II, Mathematical Physics, Differential topology I and II, Graduate Algebra I and II, Topics in Geometry (I suspect my lack of a complex analysis course, and my heavier slant towards physics is hurting me mildly here)
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: 2 of my letters of recommendation should be very strong, another two should be good. I have given talks on gauge theory, and YangMills theory in both the physics and math departments as well.

Re: 2023 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
Does anyone know the Rutgers University Newark？
I wish I can learn some complex differential geometry, I never heard this school before, so how about the geometry group in Newark？And how about the funding/TA ship in there？
Thanks for sharing.

Undergrad Institution: Relatively small college from India
Major(s): Mathematics Honours
GPA: 82%
Postgrad Institute: Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata
GPA: 78% (quite low grades compared to my own standards, main reason why I didn't apply abroad after getting my degree)
2nd Postgrad Institute: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai
Type of Student: Indian Male
GRE Revised General Test: Didn't take
GRE Subject Test in Mathematics: Didn't take
TOEFL Score: 110
Program Applying: Pure Math
Research Experience: Tried working on extending results on "counting maximal degree subbundles of a vector bundle" which was original work by one of my recommenders.
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: National Board of Higher Mathematics Fellowship, Junior Research Felowship, stellar track record in clearing almost all significant entrance exams for graduate admissions in India
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: None
Math Courses Taken: PhD 1st year level coursework at TIFR Mumbai (most advanced coursework offered in India). Several advanced courses including Algebraic Geometry and Complex Geometry, Reading course on Higgs bundles, moduli spaces of vector bundles, GromovWitten invariants etc.
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Main recommender is considered as one of the important figures in vector bundles and moduli spaces.
Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: I was already part of a PhD program but still applied 2+ years after getting my last degree (my PhD program would not give me any degree since I am essentially dropping out).
Applying to Where: (Color use here is welcome)
School  Chicago rejected (had my hopes high after a zoom call with potential advisor, rejection is depressing)
School  Washington accepted! (most likely will join)
School  Notre Dame accepted first unofficially, then officially (fantastic preofficial acceptance chat with potential advisor)
School  Oregon accepted (fantastic postofficial acceptance chat with potential advisor)
School  Pittsburgh accepted (intend to decline)
School  UIC was emailed by director of grad studies, didn't receive followup yet
School  Wisconsin Madison rejected
School  Toronto ghosted me since about November, didn't get any replies to any mails concerning application process etc.
School  Maryland
School  Boston University
School  UT Austin
School  Stony Brook
Ending comments : 1. Turns out most USA Universities do not care if you are applying a few years after getting your last official degree. Such is not the case in my country sadly.
2. I applied to Universities ONLY after emailing potential advisors and getting replies from them. Such is the case for the above list except UT Austin where I applied simply because I wanted to.

Re: 2023 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
My interview from UofA is more like an 11 QnA session. It was mainly one prof introducing their program and answer my questions. I received the financial offer from the program last week and the offical offer from graduate office this morning.Scathrules wrote: ↑Thu Feb 09, 2023 1:48 pmWhat did they say in your interview at Arizona?

P.S. It seems that most rejections from Brown(Pure) were sent on 2/9. Among all the applicants I know, I'm the only one to not hear from them (and no updates on portal) which is pretty strange as they sent out waitlist emails before. Hopefully they did not ignore my application. I would appreciate it if someone could give some idea on whats going on.
Haven't heard about it ever.
Arizona State or UArizona

Re: 2023 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
Just saw an acceptance from Stony Brook on the gradcofe. Has anyone else heard anything from them as well?
Re: 2023 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
I emailed them last night, and they said they don't quite have the information on who's made a short list quite yet. I don't know what to make of this acceptance.

Re: 2023 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
A professor emailed me telling me I was admitted, and asked if I was still interested.
They said to let them know soon so that they could send offers to others if I wasn't interested.

Re: 2023 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
Does anyone get an admission without having an interview? or it is a must to have an interview to get an admission.
Re: 2023 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
Did anyone hear anything from purdue, Texas A&M or U michighan?

Re: 2023 Applicant Profiles and Admissions Results
Hey I have also received a conditional offer today, but I could not see anything related to funding anywhere neither on the applicant portal nor on the offer letter. Does this mean I will not receive funding? Or do funding decisions come later?borelcantelli wrote: ↑Sat Feb 11, 2023 11:04 amUndergrad Institution: A Southeast Asian university (arguably the best for maths in the country, but in practice not that wellknown globally)
