Uni: University of Texas at Austin
How /sci/ is it: Very

If you aren't familiar with UT, its a fairly large and well funded university, so there's a ton of top tier research opportunities. It's one of the top state schools in the US, so it's pretty competitive (the science, engineering, and business colleges that is), and I would say it's comparable to an Ivy. Like every uni it has it's fair share of "bullshit studies" degrees, but other than those programs you can expect a fairly rigorous workload.

The weather fucking sucks though, unless you like sweating the moment you step outside during warmer months. All in all, not a bad uni though, a bit expensive if you aren't from Texas though, or even if you aren't from Austin for that matter.

I think employers won't really give a fuck what particular uni you've gone to as long as it's decent and you can do your job.
Every college has a certain stereotype to it's members but there's obviously variety in the people there so it doesn't really matter in that regard. However I'd say Hatfield and University are good because of weekly formals.

Most people don't really go to Newcastle very often at all, that's only if you really like clubbing and all that shit, or a day out. For the most part you're in the 'Durham bubble', and it's pretty comfy.

For physics (especially astronomy), Durham is one of the top in the world, which is what i applied for. Eventually i switched to math cos i detested physics, and yes, the math department isn't great. It's good for humanities and its shit for engineering. Otherwise, any of the top schools except oxbridge is gonna give you just about the same educational experience.

>What college did you stay at? did you like it? which ones would you recommend?
Aidan's. I chose open application since I didn't know anything about colleges. There are two types: Bailey and hill colleges, that is, colleges in the city centre (although they have locations outside) and outside. Durham is overall pretty posh, but the poshest will be at bailey colleges, in particular University college and hatfield, if you're into that. They also have the most funding for everything and a shitload of formals. Otherwise, if you're into sports Collingwood is the one to go to (Hill), and probably the next best Hill college is Aidans. You will NOT get into bailey colleges if you did an open app, since they are so requested. You don't lose anything by trying and you can always switch later if you don't like the "posh experience".

>How often did you travel to Newcastle?
5-6 times at most. No point in going out there, all the fun (and safety) is in durham, and you can't get back to durham on the train at night. It may be worthwhile to go there to a restaurant or movie but no point otherwise.

>Were you originally from a city or a town? How did it feel moving to Durham?
Big city. I liked it since it's so safe, and you always meet people you know randomly on a night out. There's not that many things to do outside of going out / pubs / sports / eating, but I didn't find myself needing it.

I'm doing a PhD at Warwick right now, and 100% I'd tell you that the best experience you're going to have is at a collegiate university. Gives you much more diversity of people that you're going to meet, more chance at participating at casual or fun levels of sport, and make more tight-knit friends. At non-collegiate unis, most of your social interaction is going to be either people from your class or people from any society/sport you're into, and not much out of it, and since you're not living with them day-to-day it's not as great either.

My regrets are not getting into Cambridge, not befriending my classmates, and more relevant to you, not joining a university-level sport till my 3rd year (even if you're a beginner you should look around).

Thank you for your time. I was planning on studying engineering but if its shit at Durham then I may go to Manchester or Bristol instead since they're the only ones who offer PhD programs for the specific course I want to do (AerospaceE) and are apparently really good at it.

I'm a pretty sporty guy, so Collingwood may be best for me. In fact, I live in Leicester I was seriously considering Loughborough Uni since it's only a 25 min drive from my parent's house but I decided to go to uni just for sport isn't the smartest move.

>> No.10267295

>>10267250
The main 3 ways you will meet people is: they live in your corridor, they go to your class, or you do the same sport/society. Most societies have at least one social every week.

They have this weird-ass ritual at socials called "circling" where you sit in a circle and chug some sugary beer-currant mix called "purple". Two people lead the circle, to which there are rules which you drink if you fail. You won't be told the rules, so you will have to learn them by trial and error. I'm not the biggest fan, but perhaps it's because everyone there is an undergrad and I'm a postgrad.

Going out is pretty lame because need to pre-buy a ticket for all events weeks in advance, including to do this circling thing. You should try to buy the all-year pass in freshers week, since you can always resell the ticket later, and it's worth it. Otherwise you'll have to go around trying to get tickets from people, and you won't get into the busiest/best nights. Most of the events are in the students union, which gets a bit monotonous, or in Leamington spa, which is like 40 minutes away by bus, so it's a bit inconvenient, but most people live there outside of first year. However, I find that nights out are still pretty fun.

If you have some more specific question I can try answering. I don't know much about CS at Warwick, but the math department is top in the world, so their intersection must also be pretty good. Also there's tons of companies dumping truckloads of money here.

Don't take too at heart my comment about shit at engineering, but I'd just say it's not at the same tier as the physics department. That said, it won't affect at all the quality of education. In fact, I thought my physics classes were terrible, despite having one of the best departments. The quality of the department is only really important for PhDs anyways. The curricula everywhere are probably all very similar and standard.

Hot tip from me: Don't do your undergraduate where you mean to do your postgrad if it's a small city (like durham). You will be extremely eager to leave by your 4th year, and most of your best friends will be gone anyways.

Second hot tip: Don't put as much emphasis on sport, to the point that it might hurt your social life and/or your grades. There are so many people in Durham that put ungodly amounts of their time into it, then completely quit after their final year and feel like they wasted their time. For example, the university rowing team trains 13 times a week, and have to wake up at 5 every day, and I've never heard some say they feel like it was not worth it at all. Don't do it unless you want to pursue olympic level.

Don't get that idea too high up in your head. I graduated top of my class and I still didn't get into either (to be fair, I fucked up the interview). It's still an extremely selective process. To be fair, there's 1-2 positions for what I do since there's barely any funding/interest, while probably tens of positions in engineering, so it's not as bad.

ASU Barrett, Honors College
Well I intend to major in math but still need the associate's. I fucking hate it. They say that ASU is the largest student body in the US (over 75,000) but I find myself constantly surrounded by zombies. Even in the Honors College it is filled with pseudo-intellectuals. Have you ever been turned off by stupidity? It's extremely common here.

Mom and dad want me to go into computer science like a good goy but honestly engineering of any kind is not for me. They tell me I'm going to fail at math despite being homeschooled for most of my life due to having numerous medical conditions. Too bad ASU is good for one job in Arizona and no college looks at your transfer request. It's like I'm living in a blacklist. /sci/ is where I go to desensitize and get away from it all.

what do you like about Stony Brook? I hear the academics/research is good but the quality of dorms and life in general for undergrads sucks because its primarily research focused. Am I right in thinking that's why you feel the way you do?

>>10267217
I know someone doing Aerospace Engineering at Imperial and he does all kinds of cool stuff and even spent a semester at MIT, but he does/did have the second-highest GPA in his major so it might just be him being smart. Still, the ability to spend time at somewhere like MIT is great for connections and research if you can set any up. London IS an expensive shitshow, he complains about it regularly. Just my opinion, but I don't think money should be (within reason) such as huge consideration for the place where you'll be making lifelong friends. Even a small improvement in the quality of people you meet will have a lifelong affect.

Numerical analysis will be shit but thinking about bearing with it as apparently the lecturer is good and it's a really easy course for exams.

Am a brainlet and so I like computer science. My end goal is a an MSCS with a concentration in data-science/machine-learning because I find it facinating, (am already familiarized with basic ml through online courses and reading) and I like money.
Basically what college path is best?

Double CS and Math major, then MS in CS:4.5-5 years

Just BS in CS into a MSCS: 3.5-4 years

Math Major CS minor into MSCS: 3.5-4 years

That's exactly like my mother, always trying to prevent me from doing anything that has the slightest risk. You lose literally nothing by trying, other than some self-respect if you completely fuck up... so what? Fine, don't apply to Cambridge, but any other program is going to pay you at least 14k pounds a year in England without any required teaching duties. Applying is free everywhere but oxbridge. I don't know how it works in mainland Europe but probably similar (except the duties).

Literally just apply. Hard work will take you farther than you think. Don't listen to your complacent parents. Prestige matters, but not that much. What YOU do matters more.

Undergrad is pretty nice for low tuition and chem/petro/mech engineering.

Grad school is saturated with chinks. Profs literally accept random students because they are identical on paper and know the gov't will pay for their tuition regardless.

Berkeley maths is good, but you need to be a real wizard or you'll be left in the dust.

I'm not a math major, but I was at office hours with one of my friends who is. He was schmoozing the professor, trying to get a letter of rec for grad school. This Asian girl walks in, starts talking about algebra, says she's self-studied like 3 textbooks and is taking 2 grad classes next semester. Professor is loving it. My friend shuts up, stops schmoozing, when we leave he just says "if that's my competition, I'm fucked". Probably realized he should have just done CS and become a code monkey, but it's too late now for him to switch, so he's dug himself deep into pure maths. A shame, really. Not everyone is a wizard.

I did take 202a with rieffel this fall, it was fun but a bit of a meme. Problem sets were great though. I don't know about cancer, sounds like someone who either did shit and wasn't prepared or someone who knew everything already. It was a proper topology and measure theory course and it ended at just the right spot.
It was a bit slow though. Sometimes that was warranted, sometimes not. He's an old guy, I cut him some slack. Excited for B.
I dont know about 250a. Seems useful but it was definitely a meme this semester. Heard it was basically all category theory. But I also heard Nadler was just not the best prof for it anyway, so I think it'll be okay next fall if it's someone else. I'll probably be taking it, if it seems okay. I'm in a similar boat, analysis is GOAT and algebra is shit but I also feel like I need to learn more of it before grad school. Gotta get those homology skills on lock.
I would highly recommend attempting 202a and 250a in the fall and maybe picking one to stick with if it's too much, then take the b course of one (if you like it) alongside something else you like. I'm not sure what to recommend there. Plenty of good classes, just pick something you think you'll like. Spectral theory, C* algebras, pdes, alg top, diff manifolds, dyn systems all good classes i've heard. Ideally pick something whose undergrad analogue you've taken.
Or just stick with the B class. Depending on your plans, you might want more though.

Kek, if that was recent there's a good chance I know that girl. I know two fitting the exact description. I would say that berkeley "math wizards" are probably tough competition, but it's also true that that's not the only way to connect with a professor and to succeed in math somewhat.
One of the problems I have with berkeley is the competition mentality people have here. So many people absolutely need to compare themselves to others and treat it like a joke. Just focus on yourself. That's what I do, and I've done pretty well for myself. I don't give a shit how anyone else is doing unless it affects a curve that I'm depending on. It can be easy to get distracted from that, especially in a situation like that, but what does your friend expect? Of course the competition is tough, it's usually just invisible.

i understand that, especially with chicago, often the school can't do anything about a deteriorating neighborhood other than buy it all up (which isn't feasible) or heavily increase its police presence (which is what uchicago did), but it pisses me off when schools like FSU and Duke would rather embrace the surrounding ghetto and pretend it isn't a problem than do something like build physical barriers isolating themselves from the ghetto

even if the university can't do anything about the ghetto directly, they can avoid doing stupid shit like placing GRADUATE STUDENT HOUSING on a street ADJACENT to gangland (i'm looking at you uchicago jesus christ fuck you).

I'm happy you brought this up because I may be applying to UH for grad school and don't really have other options. My GPA and GRE are not too great and I don't have much of any research experience. My reason for applying is because of one particular professor along with his research and because I think he'd be a good advisor. He's also a chink xD but seems very cool.

With that said, Im beginning to understand that grad schools in general are saturated with international students. I'm a fully southern white boy born and raised so does that have any impact in my chances in admission to other better schools? Have the diversity tables turned and top universities are now desperate for white students?

Also, why is it that schools like UH have a strongly foreign graduate school? Are white people just not interested in PhD level research? I'm coming from a CS perspective by the way.

the head of the department, Julian Edwards, is an MIT grad, there are a pair of Bulgarians who were top of their class at UMoscow (Miroslav Yotov is an algebraist and Gueo Garantcharov is a differential geometer) who are both incredible
there are two set theorists from Cal Tech, one of which is George Kafkoulis who is possibly the best professor at the university
and there is a topologist/analyst named Teddy Draghici who is amazing

it's a seriously underrated program for undergraduate mathematics. I went there for undergrad and got accepted to the theoretical CS phd at UChicago, and my gf at the time got accepted to the math phd at UWashington

Can you tell me a bit more about the UoT and UBC ? For a future math and cs graduate?
And also
Does anyone have a opinion on the university of Waterloo ?

I'm a Brazilian finishing my Bsc in applied mathematics at the University of São Paulo, if anyone want some info feel free to ask.

>>10273734
Well, that's why I just want to do a bit of math. Math builds on your understanding of cs. Obviously there are other things in cs that don't need math(mainly design choices) but that doesn't mean you should just be a brainlet and ignore math.

Yeah because of average, about engineering not really a problem most math majors there don't have a problem finding work they usually go do Economics or research and get paid fairly decently.

Currently studying MechE but going to change either to Med school Maths or Physics

Also have a friend in the same degree, heard it was filled with brainlets that couldn't even do Linear Algebra.

If he did math he could have had 300k a year and any job he wanted.

>> No.10275482

What institution you study at means relatively little. Applying yourself matters around 2 orders of magnitude more, and getting your first job matters 3 orders of magnitude more. You will eventually hate your alma mater for being such a waste of your time when you realise you could have done this all yourself if you were not so lazy.

don't listen to this person please, get into the best university you can afford. when you have brainlet narcissists instructing you during crucial periods in your education you will wish you'd tried harder in highschool and/or community college.

t. did not try hard and has dumb teachers

Too bad UBC is full of fags. The math department is also very shitty. Glad I transferred to Mcgill

That is nice anon, seems like you/your parents want you to have a prestigious degree but if you like it then it will just make you hardworking.
Also well im in telecom not CS so its a lot of guys that couldnt enter CS, legit only 2-3 ppl actually care about the degree other than me

>> No.10277073

>>10276171
Parents don't really care as long as it isn't a meme tier degreee and narrowed it down to those three because Engineering just seems too much of a brainless desk job not to be ofensive, being a surgeon seems much more enticing

>Got higher scores than everyone else in the same exams
>Still get called brainlets

Just because they chose not to read slides all day and give everyone the medicine they have in a chart for any given disease doesn't make them brainlets, that's just other specialities trying to cope with being paid half for easier work, atleast they have to keep learning new procedures, everyone else just updates their medicine charts
