goldenburrito Posted October 29, 2020 Share Posted October 29, 2020 I'm a recent graduate in Data Science, emphasis in Applied Math from UC Berkeley, looking to apply for master's programs in Applied Math/Computational Math. GPA-3.02 GRE General- 157 Verbal, 166 Quantitative, 4.0 Writing GRE Subject Math-Cancelled due to COVID LORs- All three letters should be fairly strong: 1) Well-known professor I researched with in computational geometry, was heavily involved in several projects. 2) Lecturer in a sound computing course I took. I was quite interested in the course and showed up a lot to office hours. He seemed enthusiastic about writing me a good letter. 3) Computer Science professor I have been working with since summer from my hometown. The project I am working on is the thesis subject for two graduate students and are in the early stages of writing an academic paper. He said he'd be happy to write me a letter. I have some particularly low grades in two courses, Concepts of Probability and upper-division Linear Algebra, but was hoping some of my other experiences could compensate for them. I did well in lower-division math, A's in Calc I & II, but my upper-divs are around a B/B- average, with some lower than that :(. I have a list of about 10 schools: UChicago, UWashington, Columbia, USC, UCSD, UCSB, UMD, UNC-Chapel Hill, Northwestern. I know most of these are reaches, am I aiming too high, or do I have a shot at some of these schools? If not, should I apply to some lower-ranked programs, and which ones?
