  2. Thank you all for such detailed answers! I will take into consideration a lot of the tips here. I already feel much more confident from reading all your helpful explanations. @cmykrgb Time is crucial I am definitely going to work on that. Great tips! @Vince Kotchian GRE Prep I'm going to invest in the Manhattan book, I only have the ETS and Kaplan now. Thanks for your response! @Ibycus Thanks for sharing your reddit post, that helped a lot!
  3. Hi everyone, As a math major looking to get into a quantitative-heavy graduate program (engineering/computational finance/statistics/computer science), I am determined to get a [near] perfect quantitative reasoning score on the GRE. I would be happy with a 165-167 and absolutely thrilled with a 168-170. My question is: how exactly does one achieve these scores? I am still early in my GRE experience, but it seems to me no matter how much GRE math you know, there is usually at least one or two of the 40 (or 50) questions I have to guess on or stumps me with time. Additionally, there a
  4. Hey everyone, I am a senior graduating from a top public state university in New York. I am a BS Mathematical Sciences student with a minor in Education. I am wondering if my chances of applying to an engineering graduate program will be affected (for the better or worse) since I didn't study engineering in my undergrad. However, I have taken all required math courses an engineer must take, like linear algebra, differential equations, and calc 1-3. On the downside, I have never taken specific engineering courses, or physics/chemistry. Any feedback or insight is appreciated. P.
  5. Hey FIschie22, Thank you for your response. I definitely want to apply to a masters degree, not a PhD. Yes, unfortunately I never had a chance to do relevant research or have field experience. But I'm hoping with a strong personal statement I'll be able to convince the grad schools of my transition. By the way, will being a math major hurt or favor my chances in entering an MS/MA engineering program? Thanks for your help!
  6. Hi everyone, Thanks for taking the time to read my post. I'm wondering how I stack up against other applicants to an engineering grad school program. Current programs I'm looking at include petroleum engineering masters at Penn State or University of Texas at Austin (or other relevant schools in Texas). Other engineering programs I am looking to consider, such as nuclear engineering, but I am unsure of what schools to apply to yet. I am a senior graduating from a top public state university in New York with a 3.3 GPA. I am studying BS Mathematical Sciences with a minor in Edu
