What to do in between undergrad / grad

Postby jenoh91 » Fri Jun 24, 2016 5:45 pm


I will spare you my life details and just get to the point.

I graduated with a B.S. in math in 2015 and went on to become a math teacher through Teach for America. I wanted to apply to grad school even before TFA. Honestly, the reason why I did TFA was because I thought I would have time to study for GRE + the subject GRE after work since I thought that being a teacher was easy. (well... it's not.)

Long story short, I have one more year of TFA and I was wondering if any of y'all had any advice on how I can go about doing some math research on the side while finishing up TFA. I don't mind if it's not paid. I just really want to do research to help boost my application before I start applying.

Of even if you have any other advice on what I can do to help boost my application.

For your reference, I live in Dallas (not too far from SMU).

ANY advice is welcome! Thanks!

Hi. I actually have a similar experience with you. I graduated with a B.Sc. in math in 2015 from HK and now I'm going to continue my MPhil study starting from this Sept in HK. In the middle time after I graduated, I worked as a part-time RA in my university and got several math tutoring jobs from outside for my daily income. Also I took the both GRE exams to enhance my profile of application although it's not a must in the requirement. One thing is good to do is to find your potential advisors and discuss your research interest with them. Wish this may help you!
