  1. Hello everyone, I would like to apply math PhD fro fall 2022. I don't have a traditional background, therefore I would like someone evaluate my profile. Since there's a lot of uncertainty in 2021, much of the information here have their uncertainty as well. However I will update the information when the things are certain. Also any advice is appreciated. Undergraduate institution: East asian university in top 20 of qs ranking Major: Physics GPA: 3.25/4.0(overall) Math course: Calculus(A-), engineer maths(A), multivaraible calculus(B+/A-), Linear algebra (A-), topology(B)
  2. Hello, as I finished my junior year at my new undergrad university (came from average community college), I would like to start preparing and assessing what "level" I should most look into. Everyone has their dream school, and mine is UC Berkeley. Granted, my hopes of being admitted there are slim at best. Nonetheless, I would be remiss if I didn't try and apply. That said, I have some other programs I might have some shot at, even if it's a long shot. I would appreciate an honest look at where I stand, and then maybe some examples of institutions I should consider "reach", "within my reach" a
  3. I had mediocre to poor performance during my undergraduate career due to family/financial issues. As a result, my major GPA in mathematics was around a 2.5 (I do not have to exact number as it is not listed on my transcript) and my cumulative GPA was around a 2.8. Fortunately, my institution offers a certificate program (akin to something like non-degree studies) to essentially re-take graduate level versions of undergraduate courses, but I am wondering if that would be the best course of action as I am also considering the Math GRE subject since my performance was so poor. Is it tot
  4. Need help narrowing down my list for (applied) math PhD programs. Below are my thoughts on each - all advice is super duper welcome 🙃 Courant (CAOS): Arguably the best institution to study mathematics in the world; CAOS program is very small (2-3 new students each year); only one female faculty out of 8 (and she just started last year); think that a PhD from Courant would set me up to do basically whatever I wanted in life career-wise; simultaneously worried it would kick my ass and leave me depressed/with extreme burn out; cost of living is high and housing seems like a nightmare but I w
  5. applied for EPFL math for 15 th of January but wondered anybody else who accepted for PhD in mathematics or other fields thanks in advance
  6. I’m a Vietnamese First-Year Mathematics student who really wants to pursue a PhD in Mathematics. What's needed to be approved for good PhD in Mathematics? (in detail). I know that it must need a IELTS/TOEFL degree, GRE, 3 letters, ... But at which score I will get approval from a graduate school in Top 50 over the world. How can I get that three letter in the best way I could? Give me as many as advices, experiences you have on what I need to do now to be a strong applicant in the future. And if possible, tell me more about your story in pursuing a PhD in Mathematics. Tell me

  8. Has anyone heard from Math Department at Purdue... I have applied for PhD program there for Fall 2020. Haven't heard anything from them yet... Strangely quiet
  9. Do graduate schools look down upon applicants who do not immediately want to pursue a career in academia? If I want to do something in between graduating with my Ph.D. and my academic career, should I leave that out of my personal statement? Specifically, I am seeking admission to a Ph.D. program in mathematics. After getting my Ph.D. I want to enlist in the Navy and become a SEAL. After I leave operational capacity, I want to serve as a mathematics professor at the Naval Academy or the Naval Postgraduate School. Should I include this in my personal statement, or only mention wanting
  10. Hi! I'm a recent graduate planning on applying to PhD programs in statistics or data science for Fall 2020. My research interest lies in the field of Natural Language Processing. Undergraduate Institution: Western-style university in Central Asia (Nazarbayev University) Majors: Mathematics, minor in Economics GPA: 3.57/4.0 (lower in the first year when my major was Chemical Engineering, and higher after I transferred to Math) Type of Student: White Female Relevant Courses: Math & Statistics: Calculus 1, 2, 3 (A, A, A) Linear Algebra (A)
  11. Hi all, I'll be starting next year at a public R1 university with majors in Mathematics and Computer Science (and possibly a minor in Econ) with a number of math credits I earned through dual enrollment during high school (Calc 1, Calc 2, Calc 3, Diff Eq's, Intro to Analysis, and Modern Crypto). I've been reading through my university's course progression, prereq flowchart, etc and quickly realized that I am very much a fish out of water when it comes to selecting courses to take during my undergrad. Based on the little contact I've had with a departmental advisor, I'd be abl
  12. Hi, i am an international student in UCB double majoring in math and physics. I just took my first general GRE test with a verbal:159, and quantitative: 169 and wonder how competitive this score is for a grad school application, either a phd in physics or a master program in math? In other words, do I need to take the test again to boost my verbal score? Thanks!!!!
  13. Hi. (Apologies, this is a little lengthy) So, I'm a sophomore at Boston College double majoring in Math and Music. I am having a really hard time deciding whether or not I really should keep the math major. The math classes here at BC are really hard and even though I pass, it's always by the skin of my teeth (C range). Such has been the sake for my science classes too. I am a really bad test taker; I have really bad testing anxiety such that I'm paralyzed with stress beforehand and the stress makes me sick because it compromises my immune system. I have extended time but it doesn't matt
  14. Hi all, I applied to several Masters programs in mathematics. I searched on this site and it seems that many PhD applicants to the same schools have got their decisions. However I haven't received any e-mail, and there is no message left in the applicant system either. I wonder if it is normal for Masters decision to come later than PhD? Or should I contact the department to know the status? Thank you in advance for your advice.
  15. Out of the top Canadian schools and the University of Michigan, where would be a better place in the long run to pursue a pure math PhD?
  16. Let me first start off by saying that I am not doing poorly in linear algebra because I don't understand it, rather there was a misunderstanding with my professor. I had my first linear algebra exam last Wednesday. I was up very late studying for the exam, however, at around 3 am I got super sick (it was something I ate). I was legit puking every 20 minutes, I couldn't make it to my morning exam. I don't have insurance so I didn't see a doctor and get a note. I went to the dean of students, and because of that my professor gave me an offer to replace my zero exam 1 grade with 2/3 of my final e

  20. Hi Everyone! Saw a very informative thread with some active discussion for Fall 17 (link above) so thought I should replicate it for Fall 18. Lets get to know each other better!
  21. Hi All, new here. Facing a dilemma, (and I apologize if this is the wrong section of the forum as I wasn't sure but I figured as it pertained to TAs I would try here). January 30th I was accepted to ASU Math PhD program, with no word on funding. Apparently, according to their website, that is how they do it. They accept people, then a few weeks later they go about offering TAs. It is now February 23rd, and I still have no word on a TA position. I have seen 5 or so people post on here in results that they have been accepted by the department as well, and none of them have heard anything ab
  22. If you receive an acceptance letter into a Ph.D. program (in this case, math), including funding details, from the department chair, is there any chance you will still be denied admission by the graduate school admissions committee? The line in the letter reads: "This offer is contingent on your being accepted for regular admission into the Graduate School." Is that secondary acceptance just a formality, or do the grad schools sometimes override the particular dept/program to which you're applying? Thank you for any and all insights!
  23. Hi everyone, I was accepted into an excellent PhD program in Statistics in 2015 and I completed a full year of the program. At the end of the year, first years take a basic exam which determines their eligibility to continue on in the program. I took the exam and passed at the Master's level, not the PhD level. I was then informed I would have to retake several courses and needless to say I was depressed. I wasn't in the best place in my life during this time anyway and I made a poor decision to leave and search for a career as I had a great resume already from my undergrad in math. Well,
  24. Not sure if this is the right place to post my question, but if there are any biomath/math/bio people hanging around your help would be very appreciated. I am a second-year undergrad at a large state university trying to plan out a course of study that will prepare me well for graduate school for biomathematics. I am considering doing a double-degree in math and biology. I am also involved in undergraduate research. I'm trying to make sure I take all the classes I need, and also that I graduate in a timely manner. I have heard that five years is ok as long as they don't think you're doin
  25. Hi! Starting a new thread just in case. I have a bachelors in ECE from an international university, a Masters from UCSD in Signal and Image Processing and been working in the industry for close to 7-8 years in Video Compression and more recently in 3D Computer Vision. I want to apply for a PhD in AMATH(Applied Math) starting Fall 2019(mostly). I am aware that I need to take the GRE Math Subject Exam and the General GRE as well. I do not have any research papers so far. I did lots of high school math competitive exams(dont think they count anymore). I am onl
