bodaos Posted July 25, 2011 Share Posted July 25, 2011 (edited) I am applying for Operation Research and some statistics programs Below are my profiles, can you help me to take a look and comment on my chances of getting in? I welcome suggestions for other schools as well. My plan is to either get into a phd or to getting into a prestigious master's program. My biggest disadvantage is that I graduate with a 4-year degree in 3 years, so I did not take as many courses as others, the courses below are the courses completed by the end of my sophomore year. I would really appreciate your help, thanks! Undergrad Institution: Carleton College (top 10 liberal arts college) Major(s):Mathematics Minor(s):None GPA in Major: 3.91 Overall GPA:3.82 Length of Degree: I completed a 4 year degree in 3 years.

Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Dean's list for Freshmen year. Starr Scholarship holder Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Calculus Tutor for one year, Grader for courses like (topology, discrete mathematics, caculus), Mathematica lab assistant. Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: In freshmen year, I was ranked 700 in the putnam contest.
