Has anyone here gone to a liberal arts college as an undergraduate and then went on to pursue a pure math PhD at Princeton or Stanford (or know someone who has)? In recent years, students from my alma mater (a small liberal arts college) have had trouble getting into the top mathematics PhD programs (with the exception of UChicago). However, I have been very lucky and have gained acceptance to three. I would like advice from someone with a background similar to mine, but I have been unable to find anyone with relevant experiences who graduated after 1980. Thanks for any help.
