I am currently an undergraduate majoring in Applied Math, and I am finishing my junior year so I figure that I better start looking at graduate schools.

Right now, I am working towards my B.S. in Applied math, but over the past year, many of the subjects in theoretical math have interest me more than subjects in applied math. So, am I still able to attend Graduate School in Pure Math rather than Applied Math?

Secondly, I haven't taken the GREs (General or subject) yet. Hopefully I will be able to take the General GRE this summer. When are the Math GREs offered? The General GREs are offered very often right? How far in advanced should I take the GREs if I plan on applying for Grad school for Fall 2011? Also, how much do the GREs generally cost to take? (If someone has a link to a site to help prepare for the GREs, please post it)

Next question, do I have to decide on the precise material that I would like to end up studying prior to grad school? I know what interests me, but I don't know what I would want to study.

Do People generally pursue their masters, and than PhD in graduate school? My professor gave me the impression that most people that want a PhD go straight for a PhD. I've always assumed that they had to pursue their masters and then PhD.

Generally, when are the deadlines for applying for graduate school, and what materials are needed for the application.

How do I know what Graduate Schools to apply to? Should I just talk with my adviser?

Thanks in advanced
