comment Natural deduction (or similar) as TikZ tree
Check out some of the items here: LaTeX for Logicians. For trees generally of this sort, I recommend tikz-qtree. There are a number of examples here on the site that might be of use: qtree (make sure you choose the "newest" view of the tag's questions).

comment Unsorted citations and floats
Very nice. That seems to work quite well. I messed around with different placements of the float and it seems to work properly.

@MartinSchröder Thanks! I had found the LuaTeX reference document, but I didn't realize this document existed too. It's very helpful.

comment LaTeX Template for Graduate School Essays
As the director of a graduate program I can say that the format of your personal/academic statement is unlikely to have much influence on the admissions process. Focus on the content and why the program you're applying to is a good fit for your research interests, and make sure the prose is error free. Many universities have online applications so your statement may end up being plain unformatted text when it's read.

comment variable-sized “such that” pipe
Not relevant to your question, but (as you can seen in our answers) you really shouldn't use $$ ... $$ for displayed math. See Why is [ .. ] preferable to $$ .. $$
