Hi frsp. I am currently in a dilemma and I will have to take a decision as soon as possible. I have 2 offers: MASt in Pure Math at the Uni of Cambridge and MSc in Mathematics at the Uni of Bonn. My area is Theoretical Probability. Where should I go? I have a BSc in Mathematics from the Uni of Sheffield and my aggregate score is 90%. I had read in one of your posts that if the result is stellar then go to Cambridge and if not, then go to Bonn. I know that my result is good but I don't know where it stands. I will need to apply for a PhD in the US in 3 months. I wish to go to Courant or Stanford. Where do you recommend me to go? If you send me your email id, then I can send you my CV if that would be helpful.
HI Abbie had you applied for PhD grants? I've never been invited for an interview. Anyway I gave up already. I know the DAAD scholarship is quiet competitive and the only way to select is through interviews. So I gave up long ago when I never got an invite. Was your interview online?
I don't know if you feel a little bit better some years out - but if you feel ok responding - was this the MFA at the UO? Regardless - if you still check the thread at all how do you feel over five years later?
