Applying for Ph.D. Math or Applied Math
International student, Ukraine, female.
Undergrad Institution: junior year - 20ish in Math globally (US institution), first two years - community college(US)
Double majoring in Math/CompSci
GPA 4.0/4.0, same for college
Some honors classes (hopefully will graduate with honors in math), but none graduate level.
Research experience - currently doing a summer research program, should result in a paper with 3 co-authors (all undergrads too)
Done a literature review in statistics with a pretty general topic.
I am a rising senior, planning to apply this Fall for Ph.D.
I am interested in graph theory, but I haven't done much outside of it, so I might as well become interested in something else.
My questions is:
What can I do to increase my chances of acceptance as of now if:
i. my schedule for the senior year is fixed, there is no way to change or add anything
ii. I'm an international student, so any paid/compensated job outside of my uni requires a working permit, which is unnecessarily hard to get?
