I am currently a high school sophomore and am pretty good in mathematics and I have a great passion for it. I'm considering studying pure mathematics in college and probably study until I get a Ph.D. in mathematics. I'm just wondering, what kinds of jobs out there are available for math phds? And I'm hearing that the salaries can reach up to a six-digit figure dollars a year!!! Is there any truth to that statement? umm I also want to know which universities here in the U.S. (preferably California) are good mathematics schools...I already dreamed enough of going to MIT (Mass.) but I highly doubt that I would be able to get in.
