useful math

Math I liked in college: abstract algebra, combinatorics, topology
Math I didn't like: analysis, statistics

(All of the above most broadly speaking; the exceptions being differential topology, which should go in the 2nd category, and chunks of classical analysis such as measure theory, which should go in the first.)

You could just as easily label those lists "not useful" and "useful", respectively.

Sigh.
