Pure Mathematics Phd Profile Evaluation and College Recommendation

Recommended Posts

Hi, I need an advice for what Universities I should apply to, if this is my profile:

Undergrad Institution: University of Jordan (#1 University in Jordan, Middle-East)
Major(s): Mathematics
GPA: Overall 3.83, Mathematics Courses 3.93 (Took 30 courses mostly pure)
Type of Student: International White Male

GRE Revised General Test: (Will take in 11/21)
Q: xxx (xx%)
V: xxx (xx%)
W: x.x (xx%)
GRE Subject Test in Mathematics:
M: 670 (53%) (Extremely stressed, working a full-time job 47 hours a week, and no time for studying.) 

TOEFL Score: 97 = R27/L25/S20/W25

Program Applying: Pure Math

Research Experience: Almost everything I know about Mathematics I self-studied. I know many advanced topics in Mathematical Logic, Set Theory, Abstract Algebra, Category Theory, Topology, and Geometry.

Awards/Honors/Recognitions: First in class. Finished my BSc degree in 3 years, although it is a 4 year degree. Have a distinctive reputation in the department. Solved many advanced and challenging problems my professors gave me.

Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Working as a programmer at a software company.

Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Read extensively in Philosophy and Logic (more than a philosophy major would read both in breadth and depth). Have good knowledge of topics in Computer Science and Programming.

Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: Although life in Jordan is really hard, I lived a very hard life with many challenges, including financial problems, scarcity of resources, and much more. And it is extremely rare for Jordanian math majors to apply for PhD programs without an MSc degree. So being able to apply for grad programs is, in its own right, an achievement.
