<What is Adjusted Gross Income? Is it the income after Schedule A deductions have been taken out or before?>

It is the number on line 31 of your 1040 form. (Line 32 on
the next page is the same, copied from line 31.) This is
before the itemized deductions or standard deduction
is subtracted (line 34), or the exemptions are subtracted (line 36). The line you may be thinking of is line 37: Taxable Income.

So your answer is: before.
