**Undergrad Institution**: UCLA

**Major(s)**: Applied Mathematics (almost Economics and Statistics majors )

**Minor(s)**: None

**GPA**: 3.66 CGPA / 3.13 Pure Math GPA / 3.81 Stats GPA / 3.82 Econ GPA

**Type of Student**: Gay DM

**Math Classes**: Multi Var Calc I (B-), Multi Var Calc II (B+), Intro LA (B+), Intro DE (A-), LA I (B-), RA I (B+), RA II (C; illness affected it, along with courseload and bad priorities ), Systems of DEs (A-), ODEs (C+), Applied Complex Analysis (B), Mathematical Modeling (B+), Varied Mathematics (A+), Discrete Structures (P; illness affected it)

**Stats Classes**: Intro Stats (A), Intro R Programming (A-), Probability Theory (A+), Intro Math Stats (B), Intro Regression (A-), Design of Experiment (A-), Statistical Machine Learning (A+), Statistical Research (A+), Statistical Programming (A), Optimization and Computation Statistics (A)

**Math Classes after Undergrad**: (Harvard Extension, to show I at least have a foundation in the basics): RA/LA I (A), Computational Math for Data Science (A, small overlap with RA II)

**GRE Revised General Test**:

Q: 167 (93%)

V: 162 (90%)

W: 5 (93%)

**GRE Subject Test in Mathematics**: N/A, will take if I don't get in this cycle

**TOEFL Score**: N/A

**Program Applying**: Statistics MS (Terminal, only want programs between 1-2 years in length)

**Research Experience**: None, except Lit Review class (Statistical Research)

**Awards/Honors/Recognitions**: College Honors on Diploma (essentially took a bunch of outside of major honors courses and did well), Phi Beta Kappa

**Pertinent Activities or Jobs**: Some tutoring in undergrad, worked as statistical assistant in public policy postgrad for 6 months

**Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help**: Had a severe, debilitating oral infection numerous times in undergrad = led to a quarter where I Passed/No Passed some lower div math classes and econ classes, a quarter where I withdrew, and contributed to some poor grades at end of undergrad

**Letters**: 1 from Stats Lecturer (good-great), 1 from Senior Stats Lecturer (good-great), 1 from Graduate Vice Chair (good-great, took the Lit Review class with and was his best student lol). Cultivated relationships with each and didn't just visit them asking for a letter lol.

**Applying to Where**:

Stanford

UWashington

UChicago

UCLA

Texas A&M (maybe)

So, got some info from grad cafe. Limited responses says I'd be maybe ok for my choices accept for Stanford, but main problem is Math GPA (obviously ). Maybe the subject test would help a few poor grades if I wait another cycle. But I have no idea.

**Questions**:

1. Apply to more schools outside T10?

2. Any ideas where to find an RA II (mainly metric space topology and functional analysis) online? This is a particularly bad part of a weak math GPA and it's impossible for me to find a department in my area that I can take it at that is flexible

Thanks for looking, and even more thanks for responding
