I graduate next spring from Rutgers with a BA in math, and am considering trying to get into grad school the following fall. However, I haven't taken too many courses regarding abstract topics (only linear algebra and an analysis class I'll be taking in the fall); I hadn't really considered that graduate schools would be looking for those kinds of classes in particular. Currently most classes with those sorts of topics are filled up, and I have plans to go abroad in the spring, so I'm kind of stuck.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So once I graduate, I'll have a degree that seems no good for finding a job but with classes that seem no good for getting into grad school. My grades are pretty good (3.77 overall, ~3.9 in math), but I have no clue what to do. Is there any chance I could get into an applied math program, or do they also want me to study abstract stuff as well (I can't imagine why they would, but I'm not sure)?

In short: what should I do, or, rather, what can I do?

Thanks in advance.
