How big are junior and senior level maths courses then?rmg123 wrote:People will often just say they go to a school in the Big Ten since most people are familiar with the term from sports. Basically, its a group of schools, mostly in the midwest that are all in the same sports conference. I think it is pretty common to just refer to these schools as the Big Ten (being a Minnesotan myself), whereas in other conferences it might not be as common to refer to the group. Many of the big ten schools (such as Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Northwestern) are known for having great math programs, both for undergraduates and graduates, but it definitely is true that there it is harder to have strong letters unless you know the professor extremely well.
