  1. Of the schools, I was considering applying to the PhD program for all but Boston and Colorado. Linear algebra, intro to higher mathematics (basically introduction to proof writing), and Theory of Computations were all proof-heavy too. I have one year left of school. I plan on taking a year long thesis course, along with Mathematical Statistics II. I have room for 5 more courses next year. The only drawback to talking Real Analysis II is that it's only offered in the Spring, so any grades wouldn't show up until after decidions. So far I have been doing well in number theory and graph theory which are both proof-based. Thank you for your feedback!
  2. Hello, I would greatly appreciate an evaluation of my profile for the upcoming application season, and any tips/advice offered.
