    Apply to any top 20 school you'd be willing to go to. You'll get in somewhere, probably in the top 10. You don't need a master's program - I would only do the Tripos if it was on a Gates-Cambridge.

    You will probably get shut out from that list of schools, except maybe UT. Still, it's worth applying to any school you'd be willing to go to, and then with stronger math grades over the next year...

    Three to five weeks in winter, a week in spring, five days for Thanksgiving, 3-4 months in summer. You'll have more vacation than you can handle - whether you use it all is another question.

    You should send three, but don't randomize. Send the letters to the schools at which they'll have most effect. E.g. if one of the letter-writers got a PhD at a particular school, or does work in a...

    Apply to the entire top 20, except for ones that are really bad fits or at which you would be unhappy. You'll get into one.

    You're overrating how far a letter from Caplan will take you - he's a brilliant guy and has written some fascinating books, but he's not been involved in standard academic research for a long time....

    You should go (roughly speaking) to the highest ranked school, based on placement rankings, that accepts you, and make receptiveness towards ABM/ quality and quantity of ABM researchers a less...

    It is kind of odd to have two courses, one of which uses Rosenlicht and the other baby Rudin, which are meant to be taken in sequence. They cover the exact same material, except Rudin is deeper,...

    Definitely add Duke , you should add Maryland as well. You will get into top 20, and you might get into top 10. You should think about applying to some finance programs too - you would be a very good...

    Your list is good, but apply to more schools - as many of the 20 or so schools in the top 15 as possible. You're not going to get in everywhere, but you if you apply to the entire top 15, I would...

    Here's some off the top of my head. I add a (+) to mark a school which is better at this field than at its overall ranking, and a (++) to mark a school which is much better at a given field than it's...

    I agree on the pedigree. What I failed to write in my previous post is that depending on how prestigious a place you're coming from, you don't need grad math, grad econ, or any research. A person...
