  1. Hello! I'm currently a rising sophomore with a tentative goal to do graduate studies in Statistics or Data Science. I was wondering what pure/applied math or stats upper division courses you would recommend that would give me a firm foundation? Here is the math course browser: https://www.ucsd.edu/catalog/courses/MATH.html I was thinking about taking one of the Algebra classes with Intro to Numerical Analysis, but I am not sure. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hey I have looked around here a bit but have not seen the answer... It is a long the same lines as those asking about science recs for ASHA. I am looking at what stats class to take and want to take the easiest one to fill the requirement. I am planning on taking my pre-recs at UW Madison and am looking at Psych 210 Statistics for Psychology. Has anyone taken it? Does anyone know if ASHA will accept it? The more obvious choice is 301 Intro to Statistical Methods but the pre-rec for that is having satisfied the Quantative Reasoning A requirement and I am an adult returning student and I have no idea if I have met that requirement....
  3. Hi everyone! I am a junior student and will go to UCL as a exchange student. I want to apply statistics PhD program for 2021 fall. I am posting this to want to know whether I have enough math courses for application. Have taken: Calculus 1-3 Mathematical Analysis Linear algebra 1-2 Probability Mathematical statistics Numerical analysis Real analysis(measure theory) I got all A or A- except for linear algebra so I will retake honorary linear algebra at UCL. Currently taking: Complex analysis Functional Analysis Stochastic process Will take at UCL: Probability (based on measure theory graduate course) Honorary algebra Any suggestions and comments are appreciated. Thanks!
  4. 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 able to start on a Master's degree (albeit forced to) at my university for Math in my Junior/Senior years if I want to be able to continue to take graduate math classes beyond the 2 that my university allows for undergrads. My question is basically this, what Math/CS courses (undergraduate/graduate) do you all recommend I take in order to put myself in a good position for applying to top20 grad schools as a prospective math PhD? In terms of a future career, it'd be interesting to work as a research quant in a WSB.
  5. I want to transfer from Bellevue U. (online) my ample credits (none in psych) into the cheapest 100% online school offering the greatest diversity of undergrad psych programs. I'm just starting to vet... The University of the Cumberland Fort Hays State University The Baptist College of Florida Valdosta State University Argosy University Grand Canyon University Ashford University University of Massachusetts - Amherst Southern New Hampshire University American Public University Capella University Walden University Bellevue Excelsior College Charter Oak State College University of Florida Southern University at New Orleans Delta State University University of North Dak0ta University of Houston-Victoria Central Methodist University New Mexico Highlands University The Chicago School of Professional Psychology at Los Angelos Any guidance? I know that some, above, don't fit a bunch of the criteria I just laid out... - Slobodon
  6. Recent grad here awaiting my degree to post on my transcript so not a full-fledged ASHA member (yet). That said, in the spirit of full disclaimer: Yes, I am hoping to recuperate some of the cost spent on my textbooks... I tried re-selling them on Amazon, but no bites or even nibbles thus far... When did this get so complicated? Anyway, I'm going to try to figure out how to post the links to my individual seller account from Amazon. If anyone wanted to pick them up and pay me in person, I'm currently in the Koreatown area in Los Angeles, CA. If I still have the merchandize, I'd be happy to arrange a meet up at a local Starbucks or what have you... As sad as this sounds, this is my first post here, so I'm going to post this as a test. The info on the books to follow! =)
  7. Hi everyone! I'm a senior SPED-General Curriculum undergrad here in the Carolinas. I'm currently doing my student teaching and unfortunately, I'm starting to realize that it is not something that I want to do. Certainly, I love working with my students with disabilities but I can't see myself long-term doing this profession. I can see with my cooperating teacher how much work she does and the amount of work she takes home (too!); to the point that she gets burned out. Also, even with my county being in the city, the pay is very low (Thanks NC.....). I'm interested in shadowing an SLP since I don't really know what it will be like anyway. On another note, I'm doubting myself if this is only because I'm starting to student teach and do the responsibilities that a SPED teacher does. It frustrates me how I thought I want to be an EC teacher and eventually realize that it isn't something that I want to do long-term. All the help that I can get will be appreciated!
  8. 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 doing it to reduce your courseload (I'm not, but there's only so many STEM courses you can take in one quarter... ) What are some class recommendations that you have? How few credits is too few?
  9. Hello guys, I am a junior in math department of Top2 University in China. I'm pursuing for a phd in stat next year. I take Topology this semester but I have taken a bit too many courses, so I'm wondering whether it will be harmful to drop it. In our school if I drop it now there will be a 'W' marking the dropping on my report card. I did not bad in mid-term exam, so the main concern is that I don't have so much time for it, since I think I should devote more into research. I really need some suggestions on whether it will have some negative influence. Thanks a lot!

    Required Courses

    I'm an Ontario student going into my 3rd year in hopes of getting in a masters program in molecular biology or food science. This semester I am taking a biochemistry course. With this course there is also a complementary lab course offered that is not required in my program, however, most other programs in my department need to take it. I am unsure if I should take this course as it may be looked for during admissions, although if I didn't need to take it I could use this additional time to volunteer in one of my professor's lab to gain experience. I have looked into the admissions of these programs in my area and the minimum requirement is having a BSc along with the required average and letters of recommendation so It seems like not taking this course wouldn't affect me. Although, even if this course is not required for my Bsc, I feel as if not taking this course will heavily hurt my chances. Should I take this Biochemistry lab or use the time to build my research experience?
  11. I have been admitted to the Masters program at Virgina Tech, Blacksburg Campus. I have completed my undergraduation in electrical engineering. My work experience lies in the automotive industry. My area of focus is in Software and Machine Intelligence or Signals and Systems. I could choose between these two. I intend to study subjects concerning Machine Learning and work towards a thesis in autonomous systems. Since, I do not have any substantial coding experience, just self-taught Python etc., I would like suggestions on choosing the coursework for the graduate program. I plan to have the following courses to satisfy the program requirements - Pattern Recognition Convex Optimization Deep Learning Advanced Machine Learning Probabilistic Graphical Models and Structured Predictions Advanced Topics in Intelligent Systems Theory of Algorithms I plan to learn Data Structures, Java, Python and build up a strong mathematical background in the next three months, before graduate school starts. I also intend to work in a lab, to perform research for my thesis or towards a project. I am afraid that my coursework is quite heavy, though those fears may be unfounded. Any advice on choosing the coursework for a non CS background guy would be appreciated. Any leads on preparing for this courses would also be appreciated! Thanks! ECE5524, Pattern Recognition
  12. I finally accepted an offer (Woo!) and am already preparing to schedule my first semester of courses. In addition to my RA position, I'll be taking three courses my first semester. One is a mandatory pro-seminar so I don't need to worry about that, but I am free to choose the additional two. I am a cultural anthropology student, and in looking at the course catalogue, I see there are quite a few classes that are very relevant to my proposed research that I think would be really interesting to me. I am definitely going to contact my POI for advice on what classes would be best for my first semester, but for current grad students, what types of classes did you schedule for your first semester/year? Would it be better to schedule courses with a somewhat broad focus like "Ethnographic Field Methods" over a course with a much more specific topical focus? Obviously I have quite a few years to take classes, but I want to make smart scheduling decisions for my first year in the program. Let me know what you think!
  13. 1. Anyone have the rankings of the Graduate Schools of Education at the Ivy League Schools? 2. Anyone know if any of them offer graduate courses in education online? Cheers.
  14. I just wanted to say I've been following grad cafe for a while and the comments have been so useful to me throughout my applications. Thank you all so much! I am in a very unique spot with my top program. I am currently enrolled in as a master's student and will be completing my master's degree next semester. I've applied to my school's pharm sci PhD program and had a Skype interview with a few professors I would like to conduct research with last Monday. One of the courses I am tentatively enrolling in is for a course taught by one of the professors I interviewed with. However, I do not need the course to graduate and the addition of the course would require me to pay about $2500 out of pocket. I did not realize the cost until I looked at my tuition bill this morning. What do you suggest I do? - Email my professor explaining the situation and hope that it won't affect a potential acceptance? - Stuck it up and pay the $2500 (which is a huge financial cost to me) - Drop the course and don't mention it to him hoping he did not notice I was enrolled? This is my first time posting, I would appreciate any feedback. Thank you!
  15. I just had a quick question about course selection. I'm going into my second year at a Canadian university. My goal is to ultimately obtain an MSW and become a social worker. However, I was uncertain about what to minor in. I was stuck between legal studies, psychology or sociology. Would any of these be more beneficial than the other? Any advice would be appreciated! Thank you
  16. After researching for places to take pre-requites, I landed on a nice surprise! University of Northern Colorado had a FAQ where they had listed places to potentially complete pre-requisites online. I thought I'd share as I know many of us are looking and it can be a real headache trying to comb through all the information. The FAQ was last updated in 2013 so I'm not sure how valid the information is but at least it gives you a list of potential schools to further look up rather than being on a wild goose chase. ---- ***The list provided below does not constitute a recommendation or endorsement of any of these programs and may not be comprehensive. It is provided for informational purposes only. Eastern New Mexico University http://liberal-arts.enmu.edu/health/cdis/online.shtml Idaho State University http://www.isu.edu/csed/progOpp/opp.shtml Longwood University http://www.longwood.edu/socialworkcsds/SLPonline.htm LaSalle University http://www.lasalle.edu/schools/snhs/pre_slp/ Red Rocks Community College http://www.rrcc.edu/communication/index.html Texas Women’s University http://www.twu.edu/communication-sciences/5950.asp University of Colorado at Boulder University of South Florida http://www.sarasota.usf.edu/academics/CAS/academics/nd_lsh.php University of Wyoming http://uwadmnweb.uwyo.edu/comdis/info.asp?p=12471 Utah State University https://comd.usu.edu/htm/online-education/online-post-bachelors-degree Western Kentucky University http://www.wku.edu/chhs/cms/index.php/pre-slp// Florida State University https://commdisorders.cci.fsu.edu/academic-programs-admissions/graduate-prerequisites-bridge-program/ Again, this list is not comprehensive and if you have experience or know of other schools that offer online courses, feel free to comment below and I'll add it to this list
  17. At my institution, you get a free shot at the prelim when you first arrive (physics PhD program). I have a master's from another institution and, since the prelim reflects one's first-year graduate education, I believe that I might be able to pass it given a summer of dedicated study. If I pass it, I could by-pass typical first-year courses. This is really a non-quandry because I think I will give it a shot, but I wonder whether it would be worth it to take first-year courses with the rest of my peers and really nail down the material once-and-for-all (i.e. take my time instead of rushing). On the flip-side, part of me thinks that taking the same courses over again (albeit from a different institution) is a rather daunting proposition. Any thoughts?
  18. Hello, I'm trying to get a better understanding of what works and doesn't for science grad students in classes about scientific communication; communicating science to the public; scientific visualization; public speaking; and so on. Pretty much any class that teaches no science but, instead, skills of writing/talking about it. Although I'm saying course, I also care about workshops, online correspondences, whatever. If you've taken such a course, can you respond on this thread about it? It would be helpful to discuss what you wanted to get out of it vs. what you got out of it; what kinds of assignments were particularly good/bad; and so on. I'm asking because I recently realized that around my own department, there's tons of distributed knowledge about what the good classes are and what makes them good, but that knowledge is larlgely inaccessible to incoming students and tied to specific classes which change over time anyway. And there's tons of information online about this topic, but not so much about how to seek out effective classes about communicating science. Thanks!
