Undergrad: Allen Hatcher's recommendation got me accepted into Cornell (I learned Algebraic Topology through his book in high school, along with some email correspondences). But I majored in Engineering Physics, and did experimental research on gravity. Luckily, Ken Brown took me under his wing and provided weekly meetings to understand Group Cohomology.

Grad: I started my PhD in experimental atomic physics at Berkeley, but quit to do math. I am now a student of Michael Hutchings, wooo!

comment Is the Nijenhuis tensor an obstruction to the existence of non constant pseudo-holomorphic maps?
Ah I am implicitly fixing the target $(M,J_M)$. I speak of generic $(N,J_N)$ which is consistent with your observation.

comment The general Smith homomorphism in bordism
Huh? It's the past tense of pin; it can't be "pun" because that's a noun.
