Hi, I want to work in Econ Dev at world bank, UN, ADB and similar organizations. I'm not sure which programs to apply to that will give me the best chances to get to those jobs! Aiming at schools like GWU, IHEID, etc. Graduated: May 2019, want to apply for 2020 or 2021. Type of Undergrad: BSc. in Financial Mathematics from Canadian unranked university Undergrad GPA: CGPA (3.15), GPA last twenty credits (3.67), Math GPA (3.8)Low grades in my early years due to bad health issues. Undergrad Econ Courses: Intro Micro (A), Intro Macro (B+), EnvEcon (A), Money and Banking (B+), going to take Intermediate Macro (in september) and Micro (January) Math Courses: Calc I,II,III (D-, D+, A-), Prob&Stats I,II(A-, A), Ordinary Differential Equations (A-), Partial Differential Equations (A+), Linear Algebra (A-), Applied Linear Algebra (A+), Numerical Analysis (A+), Stochastic Processes (A+), Fin Maths I,II(B+,A+) LORs: Two professors in whose classes I got A+'s. One was my thesis supervisorProgramming: R, Python, SAS, MATLABResearch Experience: Undergrad Thesis in Financial Mathematics (A+)Work experience: Data Analyst Intern at the gov , and analytics/data science role at a top bank in canada (July '19 - July '20)Questions:1. Where can I get into a decent masters in Europe, Canada, US??2. Can I do anything to strengthen my application?
My name is Simeon. For my undergraduate degree I finished with a third class (CGPA = 2.36/5) I hold a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria. In my final year, I carried out an award-winning project in low-cost robotics where a robotic arm was designed using locally sourced materials. An IEEE paper from the project can be found here. Other fields in which I have interests and have made contributions including conference papers and a poster are Strategic Foresight/Future Studies (paper at the ATPS 2012), the African Maker Movement( poster at FAB 10 2014 , paper at ICCIG 2015 ) and Climate Change. I scored 332/340 in GRE and 114/120 in TOEFL last year. I was primarily interested in a multidisciplinary masters like Robotics However it seems my poor grade has prevented me from being admitted for a research Masters. Last year I applied to seven US schools(Michigan, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Worcester, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern and St Louis) but got no admission offer. I am currently open to other Western countries in addition to the US. Is there anything I can do? Do I stand any chance this year?
I will be attending an upcoming seminar where there will be Q & A regarding graduate school admission at OISE building. However, I am anxious to ask someone if they have any personal experience. I know that graduate admission is different for different programs, so I wanted to ask science/math students about their experience. Have you ever experienced rejection/acceptance into UofT graduate program in any of its science/math programs (including programs such as Statistics and Economics) with low CGPA but competitive final two year grades? I started out terribly as a Humanities student, but I am studying really hard to get A's for Math and CSC. I was wondering if my chances will be terribly crippled by my prior academic record, or if I have a fighting chance with high grades in my new programs. I will gratefully read every one of your responses. Thanks. * Also, if you have any similar experience with rejection/acceptance into other graduate schools (US included), I would equally appreciate your response.
