    I had a few speed bumps to put it lightly this semester. I worked exceptionally hard on my honors analysis course. It was extremely difficult and while I performed well in the midterm (getting an A) I did worse than the class average in the final. I am not sure of my actual failings but I presume that I can get a copy of my test graded before Analysis II to work out the kinks. I don't believe that B is an accurate testament to my abilities. But hopefully I can showcase that in the second course in the sequence.

    However, looking at the my profile and taking into consideration that I might take graduate micro next year (only if I get an A in analysis II) and still have lots of math and economics to take are any of the schools within reach. I already know that NYU, Stanford, Chicago are out of the picture as they are difficult for everyone.


    I am a junior and previously was a business major before a change.
