Research Experience: Took a lot of reading courses under professors (studying their research) , but not actually done one.
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Have a lot of teaching experience in india, and working as a teaching assistant in UAB.
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help:
1) I can have very good letters of recommendation from three distinguished professors of UAB .
2)Math or math-related courses: courses in the transcipt :- all graduate level courses -advanced calculus I & II, Linear algebra, numerical linear algebra, topology I & II, topological dynamics, calculus in multivariables. Courses taking currently now :- Real analysis, topology III, differential equations & complex analysis. Will take a lot more graduate courses.
3)Cracked a highly competitive exam IIT-JEE at a young age
Planning to apply to a wide range:
That's what i want to ask - Do i have any chance in top 10 universities ? If so, can you suggest me some of the top 30 universities. So that i can start applying... help greatly appreciated!!
