Use the template prescribed in this forum. Most people are deterred when they see a huge wall of text.
Type of Undergrad: State school, it's in the top 100. Not amazing but not terrible
Undergrad GPA: At least a 3.5, possibly a 3.6 (have another semester to go)
Type of Graduate: n/a
SoP: working on it
GRE: Haven't taken yet but expecting >167
Courses: Applied Linear Algebra (A), Linear Algebra (A), Elementary Differential Equations (A), Partial Differential Equations (A), Probability (A), Calc 1 (B), Calc 2 (C) (biggest concern), Multivariable Calc (B), Intermediate Micro (A), Econometrics (A), Intermediate Macro (B), Basic Stats (A)
Have yet to take Real Analysis but will either in the summer or fall
LOR: working on these, nothing definite so far
Research: none, reached out to a bunch of professors but they either weren't interested or didn't take undergrad assistants. Hoping to get an RA job during my gap year
As you can see, my math background is pretty solid aside from my poor performance in calc. I was depressed during this time and my GPA as a whole suffered during this time. Given this was confined to one year, how badly will it hurt my chances?
I'm not trying to get into Harvard or Princeton, a PhD from a place like NC State or Clemson would be more than fine. Provided a get a good GRE score, would I be competitive for places like that?
