Are there any graduate students in the math department in this community? I'm a junior right now, and Brown is my dream school. I'd like to know how competitive admissions are and what, if anything, helped you get in. I have fine grades in math, I'm beginning graduate courses, and I'm really close to a few professors in my department. But that applies to a lot of undergraduates. What sets us apart? I suppose the same could be answered by grad students in any other department.
