(required) Select your Areas of Interest. Which research area best fits your current interests? See https://math.wisc.edu/research/ for list of research areas available. If your interests are broad or they fit into more than one caucus or you are still undecided please select “broad interests”. If you already have specific interests you will be able to indicate those interests in the next question. No commitment to these areas is implied.

What type of undergraduate institution did you attend? This is meant to give us an idea of what kinds of math classes/opportunities were available to you. Please answer this question to the best of your ability. If you feel that your institution does not fit into any of these categories or you attended multiple types of institutions for your undergraduate degree or you are unsure of which option to choose then use the “other” option to explain.
Please select all that apply.
- foreign institution
- private research focused university (USA)
- private teaching focused university (USA)
- public flagship state institution (USA)
- public smaller state institution (USA)
- liberal arts college (USA)
- community college (USA)
- Other: (fill in the blank)
Did your university offer any graduate courses?
(required) Show Coursework: So that we can better evaluate your quantitative training, please list all the math courses you have taken. Include the textbook(s) used, course number, course title, brief course description, and your grade for the class. If you have taken graduate courses please indicate which courses are undergraduate and which are graduate courses.
If you have taken courses outside of math that have high math content and are relevant to your research interests, you may include them as well. A sample file can be found above.
Put this in a list or table format and upload your document as a pdf. (This is an important part of the application).
