Information about applying to graduate programs in mathematics

Abstract: One goal of the mathematical community is to increase the number of students who study mathematics at all levels. However, applying to graduate school in mathematics can seem like a daunting task for many students. In this presentation I will discuss basic information about the application process and provide helpful suggestions and tips for students considering graduate school in the mathematical sciences. There will be plenty of time to discuss questions from students.
