Ok, now that I have applied to six (six!) REU's, I would basically like an objective look at my chances at these programs. Here are the schools I applied to: Tennessee Lafayette Iowa State Mount Holyoke Rutgers Clarkson (SUNY Potsdam) Basically, I'd just like to know the relative competitiveness of these programs (I'm bracing myself for the worst). Here are my basic stats: -Sophomore -Currently in Analysis II and Complex Analysis after having taken Analysis I in the fall -A's in all math classes -I come from a small institution -I wrote a pretty good personal statement (it was interesting, as opposed to dry and choppy, and opposed to only specifically answering the questions they ask) -Letters of Rec from professors who taught me in Analysis and Calc3. (Once again, I brace myself for the worst). Please offer as much criticism as you'd like. Thanks again.
