Posted:

**Sun Nov 04, 2018 5:27 pm**Hi! I'd really appreciate any comment regarding my admission chances, I am looking for some 'safety' schools to apply to. My profile is:

Me: Indian female

Undergrad Institution: Top research institution in India (BS-MS dual degree)

Major: Mathematics

GPA: 7.5/10.0 (it's a decent GPA from where I'm coming, but there are a lot of C's and C+'s in my core math courses)

Grad Institution: New York University Tandon School of Engineering

Major: Applied Mathematics

GPA: 3.95/4.00 (Major GPA: 4.00/4.00, few courses from NYU Courant)

GRE:

Q:162

V: 162

W: 4.5

GRE Subject Math: 680 (55%ile) - Submitting only when its absolutely needed

Experience:

Research: Infectious disease modeling, population dynamics, thesis in theoretical neuroscience.

Teaching: Tutor for Calculus and Linear Algebra

Recommendation Letters:

1. My thesis advisor/Mentor from India, he's the Dean of the institute.

2. Math prof from NYU Tandon

3. Hoping to get a letter from my thesis advisor at NYU Courant

Other: 1 Publication in a low journal

Research Interests: Mathematical/Computational Biology, Computational neuroscience

Schools that I'm considering:

- New York University (Courant Institute)

- Columbia U (Applied Physics and Applied Math)

- Yale U (Applied Math)

- Michigan U (Math)

- Georgia Tech (Math - Quantitative Biosciences)

- UC Berkeley - San Fransisco joint Bioengineering program

I feel like all of these schools are ambitious. I'd really appreciate if anyone could comment on my chances in these schools, and also suggest me some safety schools.
