General Vs. Dedicated Department

Recommended Posts

I am still trying to decide between attending Stony Brook University and UCONN for Applied Mathematics. Stony Brook offered me a 1 year TAship in which future funding is contingent upon academic success (mainly joining a research group) and UCONN offered me 5 years guaranteed funding starting with TAship. UCONNs guaranteed funding and the location (I live in CT) seems like a tempting offer, but they do not have a dedicated Applied Math department, whereas Stony Brook does. Does this often make a big difference? Is Stony Brook a bigger name than UCONN when looking for a job in academia in the future? Thanks for any advice/help!
