Isaac Posted February 13, 2009 Share Posted February 13, 2009 I'm a white northeasterner (so no affirmative action) but why am I getting killed here? I have a 3.95 GPA from an excellent liberals arts school, double major in Math & C.S, 600/800/5.0 general GRE, solid recs from math & CS profs, REU experience, some math research, grad math & c.s. classes, manager of the school's helpdesk, and am working on a senior thesis in abstract logic. I'm applying to top tier C.S. PhD progs. I'm don't have any published papers, or long term research per se (besides working on my thesis, an reu and a semester of group research on adv. number theory) but I didn't expect to get killed. Instead it looks like I'm out of the running for at least half of my schools, with the rest TBA soon (but the stats don't bode well). What gives, here?
