gua111 0 Posted November 14, 2018 Share Posted November 14, 2018 (edited) Undergrad Institution: BerkeleyMajor(s): Math + Computer ScienceGPA: 3.89Type of Student: International Asian Male GRE Revised General Test: 170 + 153 + 4.0 Program Applying: Computational Math Phd Relevant Undergrad Courses & Grades: Intro to Analysis (A+), Numerical Analysis (A+), Linear Algebra (A+), Complex Analysis (A-), Abstract Algebra (A), Combinatorics (A+), some lower division courses, and some computer science courses, A+ or A. Graduate Courses & Grades: Numerical solution to DE A&B (A+, A), Real and functional analysis (A, A-), Numerical Linear algebra (A) Research Experience: Undergraduate research for 2 years, using statistics and math modelling, a paper submitted. Just started my "serious" research about preconditioners in compact DG method with implicit Runge-Kutta, exploring AMG now. But it is research, so no specific direction, just mess around, trying new things and see how they work. No result, but enjoy it very much. (It is really fun! Don't know what to expect every week.) Awards/Honors/Recognitions: None. Probably some GPA related things, but not important. Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Tutor in CC. Grader, lab assistant. Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: 5 graduate classes related to the thing I am interested in: numerical PDE AB, numerical linear algebra, Real & functional analysis. DRP for two semesters, on spectral method, spectral element method, multigrid. Self-studied DG and Evans' PDE, only some notes and codes, no fancy papers. Recommendation letters should be okay. Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: Enjoy numerical PDE (specifically DG) very much! I started my undergraduate as a computer science major, and I switched to math pretty late. Maybe my programming background could be useful? Interested in computer graphics at first (physical simulation specifically), but could not understand PDE, so crazy studying math afterwards. Applying to Where: Dream School (I guess not necessarily the hardest):Rice - CAAM Reach:Brown - Applied math Cornell - CAM UT Austin - ICES Match/Safe:U Washington - Applied mathNorthwestern - engineering sciences and applied mathematicsRensselaer - Mathematics Any advice will be very helpful for me~ Thank you very much!!! ?

Stat Assistant Professor 517 Posted November 14, 2018 Share Posted November 14, 2018 This board seems to have become mainly focused on Statistics and Biostatistics MS/PhD admissions.
