Hi Physicsforum, I'll be graduating next semester (one semester early) with a degree in Pure Math and Statistics (minor in Atmopheric Science). I have good research experience and an internship and can get some good letters of recommendation. However, I'm worried that I don't have enough programming experience to get into top PhD programs in applied math. I am proficient with R, but I'm not applying to Statistics. I know very basic java and C++, but I've never taken a numerical methods class. I want to study PDEs, fluid dynamics, and dynamical systems. Is it okay that I won't have much programming experience? Will schools like Washington, NYU, and UChicago look down on that? Has anyone else gotten into an Applied Math PhD program without much programming experience?
