Logic Posted January 12, 2018 Share Posted January 12, 2018 I recently graduated with a physics degree and plan on applying to PhD's in computational neuroscience. I've only taken four semesters of mathematics (Calc III-IV, Diff Eq I-II) in college so I'm worried that I'm not prepared mathematically. Would taking the GRE Math Subject test help in improving my chances of admission at Computational Neuroscience PhD programs? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

Bayesian1701 Posted January 12, 2018 Share Posted January 12, 2018 Ask in a subforum more similar to Neuroscience (try Psychology), I don't think anyone here would have a definite answer. My guess would be no because the Math GRE isn't even that common for Statistics PhD applicants, and even some Math programs don't require it. Plus the Mathematics GRE subject test has some math outside of calculus and differential equations like abstract algebra and topology which you may not have been exposed to. I would definitely study a lot for the quant section of the general GRE if you want to show that you are mathematically ready. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
