UChicago REU or UMN-Twin Cities REU

Post by PhilipYMY » Fri Feb 23, 2024 11:49 pm

Hi, I just got accepted into the UChicago and UMN Twin Cities REU programs, and it’s too hard to decide. I’m wondering if I can hear your opinions on which program would help my grad school application the most. Any advice will be very appreciated!!! It’ll also be very helpful if someone can share their experiences at one of these programs.

Year: Third year
Institution: Liberal Arts
GPA: 4.0
Major: Mathematics & Physics
Type of Student: international Asian male
Research: one summer project at my home institution, one REU, two projects during semesters, one publication
Coursework: Groups and Graph Limits, Algebraic Topology, Riemannian Geometry, Algebraic
Number Theory, Commutative Algebra, Algebraic Curves, Geometric Group Theory, Measure Theory, Analysis on Manifolds

I don’t have a strong preference for any specialization now. Any area with geometry/topology involved seems interesting.
