I was not sure if I should even post this question at this site because it is not directly related to mathematics, but rather, careers in mathematics.
First of all, I have a B.S. in pure math. Currently I'm enrolled in a statistics graduate program. In my spare time I have been rereading my old algebra notes and I have studied analysis out of Royden and Follands book. Would it be possible to transition back into pure maths. I've noticed that it is easy to find individual who have moved to applied math from pure math, but I have not found anyone who has moved from applied math (or statistics) into pure math.
So my question...is it possible to move from a field like statistics back into pure math?
