Nice GRE subject score.

However, without publications, international competitions, or recommendations from well-known professors (which may be hard given your international background), you will most likely be out of the running for the top schools (Princeton, Harvard, NYU etc.). Math PhD pool is very, very deep.


Of course, you can still apply to them, but I would set your sights a little lower. University of Washington may be in the ballpark for you--have a friend with similar stats who went there.
