    Assuming your letter writers from your second masters push hard for you (and that the program has a good record of sending phd students to top US programs) you have a reasonable shot in your list. GRE AW score doesnt matter. But your calc and LA grades could hurt your chances, those are even more vital than A+ in RA for first year courses. Just in case I would branch out a bit more.

    Thank you very much! Well my program has a good record sending people to PhD. programs and Professors told me that everything is going to be fine so I should not be worried (I suppose they will push for me haha). According to some of my professors, the undergraduate GPA does not matter if you had a good performance in your graduate studies and you took math courses ... I hope they are right.

    Thank you again!
