As is for many many many people, my main concern is my GRE subject score.

Not sure if I’m reaching too far or not far enough. Also if anyone knows any schools w great research in operator algebras that I don’t have below please let me know!

**Undergrad Institution:**Public, ranked ~100 Public

**Major(s):**Mathematics and Physics

**Minor(s):**

**GPA:**3.97 (4.00 math)

**Type of Student:**DWM

**GRE Revised General Test:**

**Q:**167 (90%)

**V:**160 (86%)

**W:**4.5 (81%)

**GRE Subject Test in Mathematics:**

**M:**650>

Took again in October, fairly sure I did much better though I did not study leading up to it so who knows.

**TOEFL Score:**NA

**Program Applying:**Pure Math or Math PhD

**Research Experience:**About a year with a professor at my school, in noncommutative geometry. One publication with him. Two funded academic year and a summer of Biophysics research at my university (tried to spin it for math, considering it actually was pretty math and physics intensive). A math talk at my university as well as 3 poster sessions (Biophysics posters). But no REUs or special JMM talks or anything.

**Awards/Honors/Recognitions:**Best presentation award at a conference, most outstanding upperclassmen math student award, standard deans list stuff and scholarship.

**Pertinent Activities or Jobs:**Physics Tutor and TA, also help kids with homework at a before and after school program.

**Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help:**one famous recommender, all letters should be fairly strong, currently in 3 grad courses (analysis, topology, complex analysis) and will surely get As in all of them.

**Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter:**Decent amount of upper division math classes. Taking two reading courses and more grad courses next semester.
