Alright so I just graduated in May 2010 with a B.S. in Math, and a minor in Spanish. I am currently deciding what to do with my life, and while I'd love to go to grad school to continue studying math (and continue learning/using it throughout my life), I'm not sure if I'll even be able to get into a grad school, for four reasons. 1. I never really considered grad school until recently, so I have done no mathematical research, or anything related to math outside of coursework. 2. I had never really developed any sort of a relationship with any of my professors, so I'm not sure who I could get a recommendation from. 3. I failed Real Analysis. I was way in over my head when I took it, and it was too late to drop it by the time I realized it. The best I could do was make it pass/fail. 4. 3.12 GPA. I wouldn't say this is horrible, but it's certainly not great. So do I have a chance at getting into any grad school for Pure Math? At this point I'm not trying to get into any big name schools and I'd be happy with anything. After reading these forums for a while and browsing through various grad schools' application requirements, #2 seems to be the big problem. The first 2.5 years of college were spent taking a mixture of Spanish, Music, Math, and Computer Science courses, since I wasn't sure what to major in. In the end I feel I am well rounded and definitely capable of succeeding, I just don't have much to show for it nor anyone to vouch for me. So...I'd like to get into a grad school for Fall 2011, which means applications are due around January 2011. That doesn't leave me much time to anything to help, so as it stands right now do I have a chance? I'd like to know before I spend a ton of money applying to various grad schools. I haven't taken the GRE yet but I plan to soon and I have no doubt I'll do well on both the general and math subject tests. Thanks for any advice!
