Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
For the life of me, I dont remember the name of the calculus course that I took in college. There are 4 math courses on my engineering transcripts and about zillion other quantitative subjects like thermodynamics, operational research...blah blah blah.
Of the 4 math courses, the 1st 3 are very originally named as Math 1, Math 2 and Math 3
The other course is "Numerical Methods". I sort of remember doing a bunch of integrals, differential stuff in the NM course and am inclined to put my grades in this course for the "calculus score" question.
Well, its a pure math course. its not economics or anything. Interestingly, wiki lists the following as "areas of study" for NM.
2 Areas of study
2.1 Computing values of functions
2.2 Interpolation, extrapolation and regression
2.3 Solving equations and systems of equations
2.4 Solving eigenvalue or singular value problems
2.6 Evaluating integrals
2.7 Differential equations
I remember doing all of these.
Keep those comments coming. I am trying to get hold of one of my classmates to get hold of a detailed syllabus description.
Is n't the title of the course important?
For example, we use some statistical tools in economics courses. In that case are we eligible to mention economics courses as statistics courses?
Yes, it is. But, the program is still not mature. And I dont have the time to work on an additional essay. If by some miracle, I get in, then I will pursue the E&I after I have a chance to check it out from close.
So you aren't applying to the E&I program? I thought that was an obvious choice for you.
I've only had a cursory look at the MIT essays, and they seem so tough. First, you have to come up with very specific stories for each essay without stepping over other essays, and then you have to ensure that such stories define you enough. Well, the good news is that you have another 2 weeks to refine and then refine some more.
