Are my math courses sufficient?
Bayequentist replied to sante951's topic in Mathematics and Statistics
Besides classes, GRE General/Subject, it'd be awesome if you can do a REU this coming summer. A good LoR from a research advisor will strengthen your profile a lot.

Best probability textbook for selfstudy?
Bayequentist replied to galois's topic in Mathematics and Statistics
Aside from Mathematical Statistics, a course on Stochastic Processes is also a common followup to Stat 110. Since galois seems to prefer watching lecture videos to reading books, fast.ai has a pretty interesting course on computational linear algebra.

Chance me for MS/MPH Biostatistics programs?
Bayequentist replied to salamiboyz's topic in Mathematics and Statistics
This is a tough one. Your low math grades are not consistent with your high quant GRE score. Do you have a professor that can explain the bad grades for you in his/her letter of recommendation? You are a URM and a female so you may still have a chance for a biostats program ranked 30~50, given your extensive research background, high GRE scores, and good LoRs. 11 replies

Am I prepared for graduate math/cs research?
Bayequentist replied to Logic's topic in Mathematics and Statistics
Your background is indeed enough for admission to Computational Science programs. You should head over to the Biology forum if you wanna ask about comp. neuro. programs! Most people on this forum only know about math/stats/biostats. 
Am I prepared for graduate math/cs research?
Bayequentist replied to Logic's topic in Mathematics and Statistics
For Applied Math PhD, you'll need undergraduate Real Analysis. For CS PhD, you'll need coursework on Data Structures and Algorithms (at least), and maybe Theory of Computation. Though your mileage may vary, almost all competitive PhD applicants I know have the abovementioned coursework in their transcript. 
Best probability textbook for selfstudy?
Bayequentist replied to galois's topic in Mathematics and Statistics
Schaums has 2 sections: Solved Problems and Supplementary Problems. In Solved Problems, the solution is shown right after the problem statement. In Supplementary Problems, they only provide the answers to the problems without showing you how to solve them. I'd imagine you'd be able to find a lot of solutions to the Supplementary Problems online, but don't quote me on that:P

Best probability textbook for selfstudy?
Bayequentist replied to galois's topic in Mathematics and Statistics
For Calculus: Schaum's Outline of Calculus is a classic book that has more than a thousand practice problems in it. The 5th edition is better than the 6th edition. For Probability, Joe Blitzstein's class is awesome  I watched all the lectures and did most of the homework problems, so I can attest to the high quality of his course. If you still want a probability textbook, the standard recommendation would be A First Course in Probability by Ross. Though personally I've found Jaynes' Probability Theory: The Logic Of Science to be a much more enjoyable read. Jaynes is not strictly an introductory textbook, but if you've taken Real Analysis before then you should have no problem reading it, as he develops everything from the ground up.

We're seeing mass rejections from top schools lol. Makes me nervous.
