I have taken one paper each in Analysis, Complex Analysis, Differential Equations, Numerical methods, Functional Analysis, Abstract Algebra. 


I am familiar with writing proofs.


4 papers on actuarial course like Probability,Statistical Methods, Statistical Models, Contingencies. I am not interested in being an Actuary.


I have taken these while working, Hence am rusty. Hence will write maths subject test.


My research interests are in statistical modeling, Machine learning, Hadoop related technologies. But I want to go to a 1 year masters to test whether I want to get into research after that or make this one a terminal degree.


Based on your reply & other posts here, I get a sense that the work experience really doesn't matter. I am curious whether this assumption is because everyone here is applying right after undergraduate degree or because work experience really doesn't matter at all.
