College selection for Pure and Applied math Phd programs


Recommended Posts

Hi , I'm applying to Phd programs for math - both pure and applied - specifically for differential equations and numerical analysis - ni fall 2015. 


Please advise me as to the choice of colleges, especially for the field of PDE and numerical methods. Also, which program - pure or applied - should I apply to for PDE and numerical methods? It is quite confusing as a lot of the faculty members working in these fields are listed in both sections.


My profile :


Undergrad Institution: International School(among best undergrad institutes within country)
GPA:7.1/10 (Batch average is about 6/10)
Type of Student: International Female

GRE Revised General Test:
Q: 165 
V: 154 
W: 3.0 
GRE Subject Test in Mathematics:
M: 660 (51%) 

TOEFL Score: 109/120

Program Applying: Some Pure Math/Applied Math - Differential Equations and Numerical Analysis

Research Experience: 3 research projects at home university - each about 5 months long,- related to numerical methods and evaluation of differential equations and integro-differential equations and PDEs. 
Presentations for each project done at college. 
One paper submitted to arXiv and submitting to an student journal . Another paper submitted to arXiv.
Upcoming thesis project at NUS in the same field. 
Summer research project with fellowship at a nationally reputed institution.

Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Did all available (about 8-10) grad-level courses - including PDE, Functional Analysis, Numerical Analysis of ODEs
Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: All Recos should be strong and all my recommenders know me from very long projects.

Applying to Where: (Color use here is welcome)
Almost final list:open to suggestion based on possibility
Upper Reach/Dream:
NYU/Texas Austin(Unsure)

University of Minnesota 
Georgia Tech
Texas A&M (Unsure)

University of Southern California
