aa777 Posted November 17, 2017 Share Posted November 17, 2017 Hi everyone, I will be applying to PhD programs in Statistics/Applied Math this fall, and am having a hard time in finalizing my choices. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Undergrad Institution: International (Unknown) Major: Physics Minor: Math, Economics Cumulative GPA: 9.1 / 10 Grad Institution: Top 30 Statistics Program (US NEWS) Major: Statistics Cumulative GPA: 3.76 Type of Student: International male Math Courses:Undergraduate: Calculus I (A), Calculus II (Multivariate Calculus) (A), Linear Algebra (A), ODE (A), Prob. and Statistics (A), PDE (A-), Dynamical Systems (A) Graduate: Complex Analysis (A), Linear Algebra (A), Real Analysis (A) GRE: Q 168, V 158, W 4.0 GRE Mathematics Subject Test: 890 Research Experience: Undergraduate Theses on Econophysics (one paper forthcoming; preprint is ready), one conference publication in AIP, masters thesis on modelling stochastic volatility, Summer abroad in Russia (SPbU) (one preprint in the field of portfolio optimization). Awards: Nothing special. Fully funded masters and undergrad education. Recommendations: 2 from professors who taught my courses in math & stats (one is rather well-known, the other is a junior faculty member), 1 from a professor with whom I worked over a summer. Programs I'm Interested In: I made a tentative list but need help finalizing it. I am interested in statistical/math finance so I am looking for departments which have professors working in these fields. STATS PhD: UChicago Penn State Columbia Yale Harvard STATS / APPLIED MATH DEPT Cornell - CAM / STATS (haven't decided which dept. to apply to) U Michigan - AIM / STATS (haven't decided which dept. to apply to) Applied Math Johns Hopkins UIUC Washington NYU Brown CMU UPenn UW Madison Would anyone like to comment on my odds of being accepted to one of these programs? I am concerned about my grad GPA and feel it would be a factor in bringing down my application. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
