Bioengineering ----> applied math? I'm a biological engineering major, minoring in math. I certainly will be looking at going to graduate school but I'm not yet sure for which field. My goal right now is to keep my options open for both for as long as possible. Lately I have been thinking about trying to double major in math but this may tack an extra year on to my undergrad studies. My school only offers a pure math degree, therefore many of the required courses for the math degree are more proof based. Would the double major be beneficial when it comes to graduate admissions for applied math programs or would it be smarter to just take the more "applied" math classes as electives and forget the double major? Also, is it very common for engineers to get into decent applied math graduate programs? From what I've seen on university websites it seems as if most have backgrounds in math or physics.
