**College:**Small liberal arts college (unknown to the greater Math world basically)

**Mathematics/Statistics GPA:**3.85

**Cumulative GPA:**3.65

**Course I will have taken before graduation:**

Calculus I – III + Differential Equations

Linear Algebra, Advanced Linear Algebra

Probability and Statistics I + II (For Majors)

Modern Algebra, Advanced Modern Algebra, Intro to Number Theory

Introduction to Analysis I + II

Measure Theory, Functional Analysis (Graduate Analysis)

Combinatorics

**Course I will be lacking**(due to scheduling conflicts): Complex Analysis + Topology

The fact that I will not be able to take Topology/Complex before grad school worries me quite a bit, seeing as how most schools strongly recommend it. Although, maybe with a great deal of scheduling-acrobatics I may be able to squeeze Complex in there.

I hope to score >70%ile on the GRE subject test and can definitely procure 2 strong Math letters and 1 decent Math letter.

My plan was originally to apply to about 4 top-25 Schools, 5 mid-tier (top 25-50) schools, and 2-3 safety schools. Does this breakdown look good? Any comments or critiques about my record? My dream school would probably be either U of Wisc (Madison) of U of IL (Urbana).
