Ph.D. programs with discrete mathematics

Main Question or Discussion Point

I've been having trouble finding many pure math Ph.D. programs with active research groups in the general field of discrete mathematics (perhaps due to its interdisciplinary nature). I'm only aware of the top schools in this field (e.g. Carnegie Mellon, Georgia Tech, UCSD, Rutgers); can anyone suggest some middle-to-lower ranked schools with a relatively large presence in discrete math?

If it helps, I am particularly interested in graph theory, as well as connections between combinatorics/graph theory to number theory and topology. My interests are entirely within the domain of pure math; I do not wish to apply to any applied math or computer science programs.

Thank you!

Well, why not go to one of those schools? In particular, georgia tech? But, I think Emory University does a lot of discrete stuff, too.

I would love to go to one of those schools, but it's not like I can go to a top school just because I want to; I have to worry about getting in first! I'll probably end up applying to ~10-12 programs next year, and I want a good variety of schools: some near the top, and others for which I have a better chance of getting into. Thank you for suggesting Emory though; I will definitely check them out.

Sorry for the bump; it's been 3 days without another response. Does anyone have other suggestions?
