Profile Evaluation, Weak Applicant

Post by tiop » Tue Aug 20, 2019 6:08 am

So I have a weak profile but essentially i discovered a passion for pure math much too late and will be graduating in the spring. My main goal is to get into a funded masters program then consider my phd options after that. I won't have time to study for the mGRE before october so i'm only applying to schools that don't require it. I was wondering if based on my profile this path looks possible. Thanks for any feedback.

Type of Student: Domestic, White Male

City College
Major: Philosophy
GPA: 3.3
Note: Dicked around in my early days wrecking my GPA but had straight A's the last couple semesters.

Undergrad Institution: Small unknown liberal arts university
Major: Mathematics and Computer Science
GPA: 3.9
Classes: All courses should be A's / A-'s with the exception of a B- in Calc I By the time I graduate I will have completed :
Math: Calculus(I, II, III), Applied Differential Equations, Discrete Math, Linear Algebra, Statistics I, Real Analysis I, Abstract Algebra I
CS : Programming(I, II), Databases, Introduction to Data Science, Data Structures, Efficient Algorithms.

Other: Internship in a cs research group, I'm close with my professors and they will likely write me good letters.

Programs Im considering: (All Masters)
UC Davis
UCSC
San Francisco State
CalPoly
University of Colorado Boulder
Colorado State
University of Utah
Western Washington University
University of Vermont
Simon Fraser
University of British Columbia

I don't really feel qualified to evaluate your profile, but here's a program you might be interested in to gain more experience in math:
https://www.ias.edu/pcmi/uss2019

They state, "The USS is open to undergraduate students at all levels, including during the summer just after completing their undergraduate studies."
