Just out of curiousity, are you looking to do some stochastic analysis in mathematical finance?

Thanks!


Haha yeah more or less! Where did you apply, if you don't mind my asking?



I'm applying for Chicago/Columbia/Toronto stats and CMU/Michigan math.
I'm really fidgeting as it seems Chicago stats and CMU math are already giving offers out.
By the way, I'm just an undergraduate student!

Good luck to you bro!

Undergrad Institution: Medium state school, not known for a strong math department
Major(s): Mathematics
Minor(s): Chemistry
GPA: 3.7
Type of Student: Domestic White Female

GRE Revised General Test:
Q: 167 (91%)
V: 163 (93%)

Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Haven't taken many math courses. Although some classes were mixed with grad students, none were listed as a grad class on my transcript.
Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: Changed my major halfway through, so I don't have a strong math background. One of my letter writers ended up being unable to write me a letter, so one letter is coming from my employer instead of a faculty member. I graduated high school incredibly young and also graduated college early. That could either help (it's kinda cool) or hurt me (I look unprepared).

Applying to Where: (Color use here is welcome)
University of Michigan
University of Wisconsin-Madison - Rejected 2/18
Northwestern - Rejected 2/9

Purdue - Accepted with TA offer 1/28
Notre Dame - Accepted with TA offer 2/6
Michigan State University
University of Oregon - Accepted with TA offer 2/4 - Declined 2/8
University of Pittsburgh
Ohio State - Waitlisted 2/20

I did not send a third letter of recommendation to Ohio State, although I did send one to every other school except Northwestern.

M: Yikes let's not talk about that


Program Applying: Math or Applied Math-- very interested in Math Biology and math modeling in general

Research Experience: REU in Statistical Genetics in Summer 2018; gave one conference poster presentation about it, but we didn't get published... Also did some research with a prof at my undergraduate institution that is leading up to submitting for publication; gave a talk about it plus 2 poster presentations
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Got a full-ride for my senior year (scholarship criteria was academic excellence as a woman in STEM)
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Grader and Tutor/TA for the Math Dept.
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: One of my recommenders is world-renowned and probably wrote a decent letter about me; I also helped found my university's chapter of AWM last year

Applying to Where:
University of California-Davis - Applied Mathematics / Admitted on 1/25 / Waiting for email with decision about funding (they said it would arrive by 2/08 probably)
University of Colorado-Boulder -Applied Mathematics / Admitted on 2/06 / Waiting for funding info to make a decision (they said by early March at the latest they would let me know about it)
University of Utah - Mathematics
University of Nebraska-Lincoln - Mathematics / Admitted on 2/11 with $16k TAship + remission
University of Hawaii-Manoa - Mathematics
Texas A&M - Mathematics / Admitted on 1/25 with $16.8k TAship + remission/ Declined 2/06
Texas Tech - Mathematics / Admitted on 1/29 with $16.6k TAship + remission / Declined 2/06
Baylor - Mathematics / Admitted on 1/18 with TAship $24k + $8k additional scholarship / Declined 2/06

Undergrad Institution: University of Arkansas Little Rock
Major(s): Mathematics
Minor(s): Physics
GPA: 4.0
Type of Student: Nontraditional Domestic White Male

GRE Revised General Test:
Q: 169 (96%)
V: 170 (99%)
W: 4.0 (59%)
GRE Subject Test in Mathematics:
M: 650 (48%)

Program Applying: Pure Math (declared interest in logic at applicable schools)

Research Experience: 600+ hours with semiconductor research group (undergraduate), 800 hours with NASA Langley Formal Methods group (2 NIFS internships), one NASA Technical Memorandum published, coauthor of a NASA formal mathematics library, numerous presentations and smaller projects

Awards/Honors/Recognitions: NSF GRFP 2018, Outstanding Graduating Senior, Outstanding Achievement by an Undergraduate, Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Assistant (Physics)

Pertinent Activities or Jobs: 4 semesters leading supplementary instruction for Physics 1 & 2 and Modern Physics (as an undergraduate), instructor of record for 6 math classes (as MS student)

Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: I began reaching out to faculty and recent graduates at schools in 2015 and have maintained a few relationships. Visited my POI at Indiana in Fall 2017 and attended his course (and others) for NASSLLI 18 at CMU. Recommendation letters from my MS math advisor, a mentor in my school's computer science dept, a mentor at NASA, and a former NASA mentor now at Amazon. I will graduate with an MS in Applied Mathematics from my undergrad school in May, with a 4.0 grad GPA. I have passed my comprehensive exams in Linear Algebra, Ordinary Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, and Mathematical Statistics. When I entered my MS program two years ago I was also granted entrance into our PhD program in Computational Science/Applied Mathematics.

Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: I have tried to be transparent with the schools I applied to that there are family medical and financial concerns (even with my fellowship) that could limit my ability to pursue a PhD out of state.

Applying to Where: In no particular order
University of Arkansas - Mathematics (my other in-state option): 2/6 Accepted; 2/8 $14.6k support offer (possibility to be increased to $26.6k pending decision on UA fellowship)
Notre Dame - Mathematics (indicated preference for logic): 2/6 Informal offer, $25k support; 2/7 Invitation to visit; 2/11 official offer
Indiana University - Mathematics (SOP specifically indicated my desire to study under the director of the logic program): Pending

I want to post my info with a bit of context. I started back to school in 2012 at a tiny community college. I had to work as a maintenance man to get free classes and slowly built myself up from there. I've read these acceptance postings for years and I've often felt discouraged (I really need an +70% on the subject exam to get into a good school?? I'm doomed...). For readers applying for grad school in the future -- don't freak like I did. Just keep working hard and doing interesting things.

You should think carefully before declining Wisconsin, everyone I know would agree that it's a better school than UIUC.

It seems like they want to do combinatorics or something related to discrete math, which UIUC is way better for. Also, who cares about rank! It's all about whether you're a good fit for the program and the offer they give you :)

TOEFL Score: NA

Program Applying: Applied Math PhD / Math PhD (some are in applied math department and some in math department)

Research Experience: Two research projects in senior year (right now), one in math and one in physics. The math one is about applying braid groups to maypole dances, and the physics one is about the experimental realization of coupled logistic maps. I am going for math honors. Nothing has been published yet, but the plan is to present at APS March meeting and publish the paper with my professor before graduation... Hope this could be achieved...
