- I am a computer science graduate (July, 2009).
- I have huge passion and attitude towards mathematics and it is the field that I want to study and continue in it.
- I am considering doing a master (postgraduate study, generally) in applied mathematics, abroad.
- I have a very weak chance to be accepted in any master program, due to:
- - I have bad GPA (I had reasons for this, however, it is still a HUGE problem)
- During my undergraduate study, I did take few mathematics courses. Therefore, I do not have the minimum credit hours required by postgraduate mathematics programs.
- I want to take the GRE Math Sub on this April 2010. (Although it is not required for master admission, but mainly to prove that I am good)
I really need advice here!
- Can the GRE math boost my GPA and make me be accepted? (indeed I am not targeting top ranking universities for my master)
- Although I want math and very much in love with it, I do not have decent knowledge in it at all! So the question is: can I within five months be prepared enough to get decent score in the exam?
- - anyone can help/suggest a study plan!
- Any other advice/thought(s) is really highly appreciated.
- What could I do to improve my situation?
- Is there any program(s) or scholarship(s) you could recommend for me? even certain recommended universities.
I apologize for this long post, but I am just confused and need advice. (you don't have to answer all my questions to reply on me! )
Thanks a lot!
