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 only hoping to do well in Math Subject test to prove myself. How realistic are my chances of a PhD Admit in AMATH? Will my work experience cost me a lot? Anyone else in the same boat?
Undergrad Institution: Top International School Major(s): Mathematics Minor(s): Computer Science GPA: 3.33/4.3 (major GPA: 3.56) Type of Student: International Asian Female GRE General Test: Q: 170 (97%) V: 159 (83%) W: 4.0 (60%) GRE Math Sub: 790(77%) will take again Programs Applying: Applied Math PhD/MS, Statistics MS, OR MS Research Experience: Summer Research @Top3 Applied Math Institute in the US, Undergraduate Supervised Study (Reading Course) at top math school in the US Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Pertinent Activities or Jobs: 4 month internship at a startup company as BI developer Letters of Recommendation: Two from Professors that I have done research/reading with and one that I have taken advanced analysis course with. They are all from very prestigious school in the US. One from home institution. Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: One semester exchange at a top3 public school in the US, got straight A in math&stat classes (3 math, 1 stat). Programs considering: Reach(Throwing money away): NYU Courant, PhD Mathematics UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA,BERKELEY, PhD Statistics California Institute of Technology, PhD Computing and Mathematical Sciences Brown, PhD Applied Math GeorgiaTech, PhD Computational Science and Engineering Umichigan, PhD Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics Match (Would be very very happy if got into any one of these): UCSB, PhD Applied Math UCSD, PhD Applied Math Purdue, PhD Applied Math PennState, PhD Applied Math Upenn, Master in Applied Math and Computational Sciences Stony Brook, PhD in Applied Math CMU, MSIN (Master) Safe(..?): Yale, MS in statistics Harvard, MS in statistics Columbia, MS in statistics/data science Do you think my profile is competitive for the schools on the list? I'm still trying to find more schools that are more of a safety/match given my low GPA. I would like to hear your advice on my school selection!
Hi everyone! I am new here so serious help will be greatly appreciated. I am graduating next year with my Bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics and I was wondering what is the next best step for me to do. I am determined to get into grad school but I've heard that, for applied math, you have the option to either take a master's or go directly to getting a PhD. My ultimate goal is to get a PhD but getting a master's was what I was expecting to get first. Either way, I just wanted to know what most of you suggest I take: master's or directly get into PhD program? Also, what is the best school that offers a great graduate programs on Applied Math? As of right now, I don't have a specific concentration so a general best school will be fine. Thank you in advance, everyone!!! Have a great day!
