I've just joined this forum, and I am amazed how much useful information is around here about the GRE math subject test.
I was just wondering if anyone would evaluate my chances of getting into a program in Applied Mathematics at Institutions like:
CMU, NYU; University of Wisconsin, Brown, and University of Washington.
Here's my profile:
Institution: Grinnell College
Overal GPA: 3.58
Major GPA: 3.91
Advanced classes taken: Real, and Complex analysis, Abstract Algebra, Combinatorics, Number Theory, Abstract Algebra, & Topology.
Summer Research ( I studied Iterated Functions Systems (IFS) used to generate fractals)
I've been a math tutor since my sophomore year.
I expect B+ level Recommendations.
I have not taken my GRE's. But I am studying hard for Math Gre Subject Test and expect at least a 60 percentile.
I am also a minority (if that information is necessary)
I also need recommendations of Applied Math graduate schools that I have realistic chances to get into.
Thank you in advance!
I hope that you don't mind with my comments :
Look at your profile, it does not have any special. The only thing I cannot say is letters of recommendation, unless you have very strong letters
, the chances to get into CMU, NYU, Wis, Brown are less than 10%. Word of mouth says that one of the necessary conditions to have your application reviewed in CMU is your GRE math score must be >90%.
My friend who got 92% on GRE subject math applied for CMU but got rejected last year and he is now in Purdue
My suggestion is to apply for more schools, top 30 schools, you will have more chances to get in (If you are American, the chances are higher )
