  1. 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" and also "safety." Type of Student: Domestic White Male Applying to: Pure Mathematics PhD Undergrad Institution: University of Washington (Tacoma Campus) Undergraduate Major: Pure Mathematics Undergraduate GPA(As of now, going into my senior year): 3.71 Overall, 3.58 Math Major GPA Work Experience: I work as a tutor for a well-known tutoring company and applied for a tutoring position through the university. GRE General Test: Not taken yet (July 14 test date) GRE Mathematics: Not taken (took a practice test, got a 440! Yikes! I am studying though, mostly needed a calculus refresher (integration)) Undergraduate Relevant courses: Community College(Freshman/Sophomore): Calc I,II (AP class), Calc III (sequences, series, convergence, basic vector functions) 3.0, Calc 4 (multivariable/vector calculus) 2.7, Differential Equations (2.0, but retaking this fall. I didn't do well in the class at community college but now that I am at university for my junior/senior year I thought I'd retake it), Linear Algebra 2.7 University(Junior/Senior) Prob. and Stat. for Engineers and Scientists 3.0, Math Reasoning (Proof writing class/formal logic) 4.0, Math Seminar (Capstone prep/ how to conduct math research) 4.0, Complex Analysis 4.0, Abstract Algebra I (Group theory with intro to rings/fields) 4.0, Abstract Algebra II(Ring/field theory up to field extensions) 4.0, Readings in Math (Independent study; Advanced Linear Algebra [non-matrix based]) 4.0. To Be Taken This Coming Year: Differential Equations, Geometry (Axiomatic geometry with emphasis on non-Euclidean geometry), Coding Theory (error correcting codes), Real Analysis I, Senior Seminar(Capstone presentation class), Topology, "Math, Power, and Society" (for graduation requirement), and hopefully another independent study on Galois theory. Capstone: Part of our graduation requirements require a capstone project. My advisor and I have decided to try and publish our capstone in an undergraduate journal by the end of summer. We will be working throughout the summer on the group structure of elliptic curves and its connection to RSA encryption. This will be my only research experience, and only at an undergrad level. Other Considerations: At my university (small secondary campus 1 hour drive from main state university campus) I am fortunate to have a great relationship with my professors. We are (for the most part) on first name bases and I feel very comfortable for them to be able to attest to my abilities and potential for graduate studies. Furthermore, my "ace-in-the-hole" (if you could call it that) is one faculty member is rather well known and has a good reputation. She is known mostly for her communications of mathematics, and is the President-Elect of the MAA (She will become official president soon). She has directed me in my linear algebra independent study and has had me as a student for my proof writing class. She is fully able to attest to my abilities, and hopefully she will be well known enough to give aid me in applying to my dream schools. Also, I have two other professors who I believe really know me and my abilities, and can recommend me enthusiastically. I am also a member of the MAA, Spectra the LGBTQ mathematician association, I was inducted to our school's Pi Mu Epsilon honor society chapter, and received department awards for "Best in Class: junior" and "math ambassador" Planning on Applying to: UC Berkeley(dream school), Princeton, Penn State, University of Washington, University of Virginia, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Oregon State University, University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, and anything you might recommend. I am really hoping for schools to learn a lot of algebraic number theory, especially in reference to Elliptic curves or group/field theory (I loved Artin's book on Galois theory). I would appreciate an honest assessment of my chances. Granted, I am still going into my Senior year in undergrad, but I wanted to start prepping now. I will of course dream big, but I would appreciate honest advice on schools I have a shot at, and then safety schools.
  2. 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 totally unrealistic for me to entertain applying to any masters degree program (after this SARS-CoV-2 outbreak is over of course) if I undertake one or both of these options and do well? Thanks for any advice.
  3. 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 wouldn't need to worry about buying a car; hard to efficiently escape the chaos of NYC and take a breather; COVID-19 hot spot; never visited the department because of COVID-19 Duke: Highly ranked for math and applied math; urban area has highest density of PhDs in the USA (presumably easy to network and build a strong professional community); hypothetically speaking the walls are low in the math department and there is tons of collaboration across departments; would maybe have to get a car (particularly if I wanted to venture into nature on my own, which I do) and I *really* do not want to buy a car; campus seems kind of isolated in the sense that being at Duke wouldn't be as much like 'reality' as being at Courant; never visited the department because of COVID-19 Minnesota: Also ranked extremely high like Courant and Duke; alma mater (although my major was in another department) which has its own pros and cons; super strong sense of community among grad students and I already have friends in math grad department; already know who my advisor would be (and he is awesome but I am not sure he is the absolute best fit for me); stipend is relatively low, but I wouldn't need a car; near my mom Boulder: Also ranked very high like Courant/Duke/Minnesota; seem to be some bad vibes between the applied and pure departments (which are distinctly separate - unlike all other programs I am considering); pretty cool research going on the department but not sure if I clicked (albeit over Zoom) with any of the faculty; seems to be a significant lack of community among the grad students since the applied department does not have its own building so students are spread out and in less-than-nice offices; stipend is pretty decent and I wouldn't need a car; I know Boulder (the town) very well and I have *always* wished to move there one day (nature is UNMATCHED), but I never visited the department because of COVID-19; near my dad Utah: Not ranked close as high as Courant/Duke/Minnesota/Boulder; really awesome research going on and multiple advisors who I have clicked with; extremely strong sense of community among grad students (already made friends with some of them via Zoom); very nice facilities (e.g. grad student offices have 20 ft. windows); surrounding nature is beautiful but hard to access unless I went with someone with a car, otherwise I wouldn't need a car; very religious city/state whereas I am queer and Atheist; mediocre stipend but I was awarded a $10k diversity scholarship; never visited the department because of COVID-19 ALL ADVICE GREATLY APPRECIATED, ESP. IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THESE PROGRAMS 😁
  4. 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
  5. 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 more about your research, what did you do in your undergraduate... Suggest me some propriate universities, Professors, the corresponding branch in Mathematics that you've taken or know... Sorry if the question posted somewhere and if it's too general and too much. Thanks a lot. Please help me. : D Mathematics Lover.

  7. 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
  8. 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 to become a professor one day?
  9. 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) Probability (B) Applied Statistical Methods (A) Math Statistics (B) Regression Analysis (A-) Design of Experiments (A-) Intro to Proofs (B+) Real Analysis (B+) Nonlinear Optimization (A) Actuarial Math (A-) Computer Science: Programming for Scientists and Engineers (A) Performance and Data Structures (B+) Statistical Programming (A) Other: Econometrics (A) Economics of Financial Markets (B) Capstone Project in Math (A) GRE General: Q 167 (91%) , V 152 (56%), AW 3.5 (41%) Research Experience: My research was generally focused on the development of computationally efficient and interpretable algorithms for obtaining word embeddings and sentence embeddings. First publication: Springer "Lecture Notes in Computer Science", topic: NLP (word embeddings), first author, conference: CICLing 2019, top 10% of papers Second paper: topic: NLP (sentence embeddings), submitted to AAAI 2020 Research internship in South Korea (UNIST), topic: networks theory In plans: research internship at KAUST 1,5 years experience of working as RA Work Experience: Currently working as a Data Scientist in a Venture company Letters of Recommendation: One from the research advisor (I also took 3 classes from him) One from an academic advisor (He is currently working at the University of Minnesota) One from a professor of Nonlinear Optimization (previously he worked at University of British Columbia) Concerns: This year I was accepted to NYU MS in Data Science and UIUC MS in Statistics, but to the several financial circumstances, I was not able to join any for Fall 2019. That is why I changed my plan, and now I want to apply to the PhD program which could possibly provide the assistantship. I want to continue my research in the field of NLP, but after a search, I realized that most of the professors interested in NLP are working in CS departments (or even in linguistics), but my background is mostly related to Statistics. My dream university is NYU (Courant), but I am not sure about my chances. I will be happy to read your advice and grad schools suggestions. Thank you very much!
  10. 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.
  11. 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!!!!
  12. 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 matter that much in the grand scheme of things. I also think that I am just not absorbing everything fast enough in time for the exams, which isn't surprising considering the amount of information I need to know for the rest of my classes. It's like putting a ton of water into one sink with a drain; the water can only drain out soo fast. So too is it the case with my absorption of knowledge I just don't have enough time. TRIGGER WARNING I have a history of anxiety and suicidal depression that almost forced me to drop out first semester freshman year but I was able to make it through but I'm still only keeping it at bay at this point. Yes, I see a therapist. Every Wednesday. I currently take 5 classes (2 math (a 200 course and 400 course), 1 chem, 1 philosophy, 1 music) and 1 lab for a total of 16 credits this semester (I don't know if thats normal; several of my friends at other schools only take 4 per semester and thats normal) and they are all sucking the life out of me because they are all an impossible amount of work to deal with together. The math and science especially have really hurt my GPA over the last two years; I currently have a 2.698 GPA and I don't foresee it getting any better after this semester, considering this has been my hardest semester in terms of content. I originally had intentions of getting a Ph.D in math because I really wanted to teach and do research, but now, given my difficulties, I'm starting to wonder if that's at all possible. I have music as a backup option and I could just drop math down to a minor, but I'm nervous about closing the door completely on the idea of grad school for math. But also, I could arguably go to grad school for music too, but I'd need to back off the math so that my GPA could raise. I totally think I'm capable of getting a Ph.D in math if I weren't devoting all the rest of my energy into soo many other commitments and classes. I've done really well in my music classes here at BC and would love it if I could teach (again, at the college level) and I sing in a choir that not only gets to travel to Europe every year, but that also performs with the Boston Pops Orchestra every year; I've done things with music I never could have imagined doing before and it makes me happy. So I have several questions: If I drop my math major to a minor, what do grad school prospects look like if I decide I want to get my doctorate in math one day? If I decided to keep the math major with music and assuming my GPA stays in roughly the same range, what are my chances of still getting into a good grad school with a degree from BC (Not looking for Ivy League level or even the tier beneath like BC; just something that's still got a good program for math)? If I keep math but decide I don't want to get a graduate math degree, what are my chances of getting into a decent school for music, again, assuming that my GPA stays roughly the same given the difficulty of math? What the heck can I even do right after college with a music degree and a minor in math?
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
  15. 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 exam grade. ex. if I got an 100 on the final exam, my zero will be replaced with a 66. However, the exam averages in this professors class are in the low 70's, so going off of that I will either end up with a low B or C in the class, and thats assuming I score around 10 points above average for the rest of the exams. I currently have two W's on my transcript-- one in computer science from my second semester (retaking next semester) and one in actuarial science from my third semester (he curved the class so only the top 40% passed, also changed my major so I didn't need the class). I am currently in my fourth semester, so this means that if I drop this course I will have a W on my transcript for the third semester in a row. I think this creates a poor representation of who I am as a student, as it shows that I won't be able to handle a graduate school course load because I keep dropping one course every semester. I want to get into a good graduate school for economics. I am currently double majoring in math and econ. I am a transfer, My first semester at my new school was last semester, where I got a 3.3 GPA. I am trying to get this up by getting straight A's this semester and my last two years. If my GPA still isnt high enough, I would be willing to do an extra semester or two to take extra courses. Now, I do believe that I will get A's in all of my other courses, however, I think getting a 'W' in linear algebra will make this look not as impressive. I'm thinking about staying in the course, getting a B or C, and just retaking it over the summer online. The original grade will still be on my transcript, but it won't count towards my GPA. Would grad schools look past this? What should I do? This is such a terrible situation... :/
  16. How rigorous and reputed is Stevens Institute of Technology for PhD in Financial Engineering?
  17. Undergrad institution: Top university in Turkey Major: Economics GPA: 3.80(2nd place in my cohort) Relevant Courses: Functional Analysis(B+), Real Analysis (A), Measure Theory(A), Topology(A-), Advanced Calculus(B+), Engineering Math I&II(Linear Algebra, Diff. Equations, Complex Analysis)(A-,A-), Probability and Stat(B+), Number Theory(B), Calculus I&II (A,A), Math for Econ(grad and undergrad level)(A,A), Game Theory(A), Advanced Economic Theory(A), Microeconomics Theory(grad level)(A), Econometrics(Regression Analysis)(A), Algorithms and Programming (B+), Intro to Computing(MatLab)(A), General Physics I&II (A, A-) GRE Quantative: 168 GRE Math Subject: 980 Programs Applying: Master in Mathematics or Applied Mathematics in Europe Recommendation Letters: Professors of Real Analysis, Measure Theory and Functional Analysis Coding Experience: Java, Matlab, Python Research Interest: Game Theory, Networks and Graph Theory, Discrete Optimization Applying to: EPFL ETH Zurich Bonn TU Munich Ecole Polytecnique University of Amsterdam Concerns: very very few algebra course not math major taking reference from not grade A course I am currently graduated and enroll in a master in economics program. I am specialized in game theory. I think that having a master degree in math will be better for my Ph.D. studies. I want to be in Europe during my grad life. I would really appreciate any comments/advice on my list of schools and on any other programs I should consider. Am I aiming too high with no safeties? Am I competitive enough for those schools in my list? Is being Econ major really bad sign or a negative point for those programs? Has being enrolled in a master program negative impact on my application profile? Thank you in advance.

    I need help solving my final question on this problem. Question 4. Section E and F. Can anyone give me some direction. Thanks MA 321_Exam 3_Spring 2018 CAROLINE WILCOX.xlsx
  19. 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!
  20. 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 about funding either. So I guess the question I have is, what do I do? I should say that I am going regardless of funding (it happens to be the top school on my list regardless), but the finances obviously makes a huge difference on whether I rack up more debt or can breathe safely. Has anyone had experience with this before? Any thoughts are appreciated. Thank you all so much in advance.
  21. 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!
  22. 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, life happened and I became extremely ill and bed-ridden due to pregnancy (sorry if this is TMI) but since then (summer 2016) I have been a full time mom. I'm now trying to take accountability of some of the decisions I've made in my life and I would really like to go back and get my PhD. I have always loved school and I have come a long way with my mental health/stability since then and feel confident in my decision to go back to grad school. That all being said, do you think that I have a shot in getting into another PhD program given the fact I left a program back in 2016 and have since not worked, not been in school, encountered a "slump" in my life, and just been taking on a mom role the past 2 years? Please offer any advice or general comments if you can. I hope this doesn't come across as too desperate but I would like to know what my chances are given my circumstances.
  23. 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?
  24. 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?
