  1. Is Anyone else thinking the math gre score is made up? I can't tell if you're fishing for compliments or what but having 10 points off from the highest score combined with saying you don't think you're smart enough is suspect
  2. No research = go lower, especially without any math GRE to back up your ability yet.
  3. I agree with others. Do not buy a set theory book and expect to learn anything out of it. If I were you, I'd look for an "introduction to mathematical proofs" book or a Schaum's outline on set theory. Otherwise, there won't be worked examples.
  4. And there's certainly nothing that would imply any student from outside of math would "ace" a real analysis course without a substantial (possibly impossible) amount of effort.
  5. What Grad School gif sites does everyone frequent? I know for bio there's http://whatshouldwecallgradschool.tumblr.com and for math there's http://forthenotworkingmathematician.tumblr.com/ and for later year grad students theres http://researchinprogress.tumblr.com . What do you guys like?
  6. Actually, this is not necessary if you're a strong researcher with strong letters. Contact with professors doesn't mean much unless (a) a professor is desperate for a student or ( you worked with the professor. Otherwise they won't really care much.
  7. I generally dress casually (see dockers and tee, tee and jeans, jeans and button up), but most people in my field (math) do. If I feel like the students aren't respecting me, the graded assignments get harder. Nothing like failing a quiz or two to get a student back into learning. I am also not TA-ing per say but teaching a class.
  8. To them every day is a bad lecture day, don't worry yourself over it.
  9. Grad Cafe is already starting to crash, we need to move to some off-site chat as a backup
