  1. Institution - IISER (Indian Institute of Science, Education and Research) CGPA - 9.1/10, will be 9.5/10 by the end Awards - Certificates of academic excellence in various semester Teaching Experience - TA/tutor for Real Analysis, Group Theory, Elementary Differential Geometry Research Experience - Currently working on Geometric Invariant Theory at IISc and Derived Categories at IISER. Master Thesis will be on Kahler Geometry and GIT. Don't know if there will be publications by the end of my thesis. I did one of my summers in Symplectic Geometry at IISERGraduate Courses - A bucketload of them (Enumerative Geometry, Riemannian Geometry, Knot theory, Algebraic Curves, Schemes etc)Given that my thesis advisor did is an alum of Stony Brook, I was looking to apply to Stony Brook/ UT Austin. Basically departments with a stronger focus on mirror symmetry and derived categories. Are there ways I can improve my application? Or am I aiming too high?

  5. Hey... Pursing Phd had been a dream am nurturing since long. I am hoping to pursue PhD in public health from either Johns Hopkins or Harvard. Being an international student, who is supporting herself financially, spending the amount for standardized test like TOEFL and GRE and application for college is a huge financial load. Hence would like to know where my profile stands so that I can make informed decision of going ahead with application process. Education : Bachelors : Bachelors in Dental Sciences( BDS) Masters: Masters in Public health from top university in India for public health GPA : 3 ( though unsure about exact conversion from CGPA) GRE - Yet to take Research experience : Conducted 2 researches ; one in mental health as part of masters thesis and other took up research project during internship ( preparing the manuscript for publishing) Relevant experience: 4 internships over the period of 2 years working at various levels of Health system: urban and rural govt health systems, rural NGO. Currently working as Consultant for ensuring quality of maternal and child health services in Govt hospitals. Would be really grateful for a honest evaluation and areas of profile improvement. Thanks in advance
  6. Hello everyone, I am a senior who will be applying to PhD programs in biostatistics. I have posted here before about statistics, but my list of schools was very different and after looking into biostatistics programs at the suggestion of a couple people here, I found that they actually do research which I find very interesting. Undergraduate Institution: Top 20 among public universities; big, well-known state school; top 20 mathematics department. Majors: Pure mathematics Minor: Computer Science GPA: 3.73/4.0 Major GPA: 3.83/4.0 Type of Student: Domestic Asian Male Courses taken: Math: Calc 3 (A) Intro Linear Algebra (A) Honors Intro to Proofs (B) Mathematical Probability (A) Ordinary Differential Equations (A) Intro Complex Analysis (A) Elementary PDE (B+) Honors Linear Algebra (A) Honors Intro Real Analysis I (A) Honors Abstract Algebra I (C+) Intro Real Analysis II (B+) Mathematical Statistics (A) Graduate Ordinary Differential Equations (A) CS: Intro to CS (A) Data Structures (B) Computer Architecture & Design (B) Algorithms (A) Currently taking: Graduate Real Analysis I (measure theory) (Going very well so far), Graduate Regression Analysis, Topology. Will take in Spring: Graduate Time Series, Independent Study (Geometric Measure Theory), Finite Automata, Graduate Systems Biology. GRE General Test: 164V (94%)/164Q (84%)/4.5 (81%). Concern: Weak Q score. GRE Subject Math: Not taking. Research Experience: 1 semester of exploratory research on the mathematics of cancer dynamics with professor I had for diffeq (ended after a semester since professor left uni, but we had a great connection and many great discussions). 1 mathematical biology REU; will likely result in eventual publication in a biology journal, however this isn't set in stone yet. Will be giving a talk at 2020 Joint Math Meetings on this research. From 2019-2020, working as research assistant with an engineering professor on quantum computing applications to environmental modeling/optimization problems. Working Experience: 3 semesters tutoring Calculus I, II, Intro Linear Algebra, Mathematical Probability (simultaneously). (Will continue this through graduation) 3 semesters grading for Mathematical Probability, Advanced Linear Algebra, Mathematical Statistics (one course for each of the 3 semesters). Letters of Recommendation: One from the exploratory research on cancer dynamics (also was differential equations prof), one from REU advisor, one from measure theory professor who taught me mathematical statistics as well, one from Honors Intro Real Analysis I professor, and one from an instructor who has known me closely for a couple of years. All letters should be strong Applied to the following for PhD in Biostatistics: Harvard JHU Yale Brown Columbia BU UPenn I'd like honest opinions on what you believe are my chances at these schools. My concerns are about the inconsistent grades and low GRE. Thank you so much for taking the time to read! Looking forward to your thoughts.
  7. Hello everyone, I'm currently a senior planning on applying to PhD programs in statistics or any related field (eg. operations research) for Fall 2020. Undergraduate Institution: UCLA Majors: Mathematics, Statistics (Double major) GPA: 4.00/4.00 (cumulative) Type of Student: Domestic Asian Male Relavant Courses: Math: Calculus I, II, III (A+, A+, A+) Linear Algebra (lower & upper level) (A+, A+) Differential Equations (lower level) (A+) Honors Real Analysis I, II, III (A, A+, A+) Honors Complex Analysis (A+) Applied Numerical Methods (A+) Probability Theory (A+) Intro to Financial Math (A+) Statistics: Programming with R (A+) Intro to Mathematical Statistics (A) Linear Models (A) Intro to Data Analysis Regression (A+) Intro to Design and Analysis of Experiment (A+) Intro to Regression and Data Mining (A+) Intro to Computational Statistics with R (A+) Intro to Computation and Optimization (A+) Intro to Monte Carlo Methods (A) Python for Data Analysis (A+) Programming: Intermediate Programming C++ (A+) Java Language and Application (A+) Python for Applications (A+) GRE General: 165V/169Q/Writing unknown. GRE Math Subject: 940 (99%) Research Experience: No formal research experience, but will start a research beginning this fall under an assistant professor in the Stats/Communications department on computer vision A directed research project for two quarters under the guidance of a stats lecturer (more of a project than of research) on the topic of computer vision A Math Directed Reading Program for a quarter under a math PhD student on the topic of linear PDE. Work Experience: Three internships, one in finance, two in actuarial science (one in risk management with a ML project, the other is accounting related) One part-time job as lab assistant tutoring programing in a computer lab. Letters of Recommendation: Have not asked yet, but I am thinking about choosing from the following options: Three math professors that know me well from my Honors Analysis class (one is a tenure who taught me two real analysis classes, one adjunct who taught one real analysis, and one adjunct who taught me complex analysis) where I got A+ in almost all of them One stats lecturer with whom I did a directed research project on computer vision with and whom I took three stats classes (2 A+, 1A) One stats lecturer with whom I took two mathematical statistics classes with (I impressed him by getting ~90 on all the exams when the averages were all ~30) As you can see, the weakness in my profile is the lack of research experience, despite of good GPA, GRE and GRE sub. So I am wondering what level of schools do I have a good chance into? I don't have a school list yet, and would like to seek feedback of the range of schools you recommend (like for example, what is the chance of me getting into phd programs of #10-20 ranking schools or what are the specifics schools that I have a good chance for?) and if there are other programs that fit my background other than statistics (eg. should I apply to operations research or something else?). Thanks for your input!
  8. Hello everyone, I am a rising senior who will be applying to PhD programs in statistics with interest in stochastic processes, time series, high-dimensional statistics, and uncertainty quantification. Not really interested in biostats even though I have a couple of experiences with biomath research. Undergraduate Institution: Top 20 among public universities; big, well-known state school. Majors: Pure mathematics Minor: Computer Science GPA: 3.73/4.0 Major GPA: 3.83/4.0 Type of Student: Domestic Asian Male Courses taken: Math: Calc 3 (A) Intro Linear Algebra (A) Intro to Proofs (B) Mathematical Probability (A) Ordinary Differential Equations (A) Intro Complex Analysis (A) Elementary PDE (B+) Linear Algebra (A) Intro Real Analysis I (A) Abstract Algebra I (C+) Intro Real Analysis II (B+) Mathematical Statistics (A) Graduate Ordinary Differential Equations (A) CS: Intro to CS (A) Data Structures (B) Computer Architecture & Design (B) Algorithm Design & Analysis (A) Courses will take this fall: Graduate Real Analysis I (measure theory), Graduate Regression Analysis, Topology. GRE General Test: 164V/164Q/Writing unknown. GRE Subject Math: Not taking. Research Experience: 1 semester of exploratory research on the mathematics of cancer dynamics with professor I had for diffeq (ended after a semester since professor left uni, but we had a great connection and many great discussions). 1 mathematical biology REU; will likely result in eventual publication in a biology journal, however this isn't set in stone yet. Will be giving a talk at 2020 JMM on this research. From 2019-2020, working as research assistant with an engineering professor on quantum computing applications to environmental modeling/optimization problems. Could result in publication but would be in the spring, not while applying to schools. Working Experience: 3 semesters tutoring Calculus I, II, Intro Linear Algebra, Mathematical Probability (simultaneously). (Will continue this through graduation) 3 semesters grading for Mathematical Probability, Advanced Linear Algebra, Mathematical Statistics (one course for each of the 3 semesters). Letters of Recommendation: One from the exploratory research on cancer dynamics, one from REU advisor, one from either measure theory professor who I've had before for mathematical statistics or engineering professor I'm researching with (will decide soon). Currently considering schools only for PhD in order of ranking according to US News: UMich UPenn UWisconsin-Madison Columbia UNC PennState UCDavis JHU UCLA OSU Rutgers NYU Stern I don't want to apply to more than 10-12 schools. Please let me know what I can cross off right away and what I should consider adding to my list. It may seem like a very ambitious list given my coursework and GRE Q, but that's why I'm posting here; I don't know any better. Thank you for taking the time to read, and I'm looking forward to your input!
  9. Hello. I am looking forward to apply for PhD in behavioural neuroscience for the fall 2018 batch. I have a BA in JPE ( journalism, psychology and English) where I scored 69.43%, and have pursued masters in psychology( MSc Psychology) with a CGPA of 7.14, both from India. I have a master's dissertation which i wrote during my final semester. I worked for a year for an IB school. I am taking the GRE in September mid. I am really confused about several things. I don't really know how strong my profile is. I did find a few universities which aligned with my interests but i want to know whether i have a chance to get into those universities. Some of those universities are Stony brook university, Northeastern university, Arizona state university and Boston university. it would be helpful if you could rate my profile and suggest me a few universities in the US. THANK YOU
