rsk88 Posted December 11, 2016 Share Posted December 11, 2016 (edited) Hey everyone. My stats are below. Undergrad Institution: Large State School (non-prestigious)Program: BS Physics, BS Math (graduated 2013)GPA: 3.56 Grad Institution: Large State School (non-prestigious) Program: MS Applied Math (graduate 2017)GPA: 3.80 Type of Student: Domestic White Male Upper Level Courses: engineering statistics, probability, real analysis 1 and 2, complex variables, linear algebra, ODEs, PDEs, linear programming, topology, abstract algebra, numerical methods, discrete math, number theory, mechanics 1 and 2, electromagnetism 1 and 2, thermodynamics, math methods for physics 1 and 2, quantum mechanics, experimental physics 1 and 2 Graduate Level Courses: complex analysis, measure theory, probability theory, data analysis, numerical linear algebra, differential topology, algebraic topology, fourier analysis, wavelets, differential equations, abstract algebra, applied math GRE: 160Q, 160V, 4.5W Research Experience: Undergrad research in computational physics, mostly (non-statistical) data analysis (no paper...yet) Research Interests: Bayesian methods, decision theory, time series, big data, stochastic processes and probability models, applications to AI/robotics Awards/Honors/Recognitions: dean's list, honors college (i.e. nothing special) Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Instructor of record for multivariable calculus, business calculus, precalculus. TA for calculus 1 and 2. Letters of Recommendation: -Two stats professors I took graduate stats courses with -One math professor I took graduate classes with Plan to apply to (Phd Programs Only): Schools primarily along the east coast I won't pretend that I'm a good candidate for a top 10 school, but I'm wondering if you all could help me get a good idea of the range of schools I have a decent shot at rankings wise. I would say rankings 30 or worse based on comparing just my undergrad record, but my grad school record complicates things, especially since a stats professor I spoke with a couple weeks ago said I shouldn't rule out "good" schools...whatever that meant. Thanks. Edited December 11, 2016 by rsk88 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
