any good state schools for undergraduate mathematics?
i'm stupid and poor
Well which state do you live in?
poor is nothing but stupid, that'll keep you out of places.
i live in wa, but i wanted to know if there are any state schools with a good reputation for their mathematics program
"poor is nothing but stupid, that'll keep you out of places."
i live in america
i am probably poorer than you and also live in america, what's your point?
my point was that in america, if you're rich, the world is open to you.
if you're poor, well...no one gives a ****
so...poor will keep you out of places...not being stupid
back to the orignal question
in any state??? you realize going out of your home state will cost just as much as a private school. and no poor will not keep you out of anywhere.
WA is Washington right? The obvious choice would be University of Washington, but I am guessing that you are implying that you are too stupid to go there. What about Washington State University?
yeah, of course i'm thinking of those schools
but i just wanted to know if anyone on this forum knows of any state schools with a good reputation for their mathematics curriculum
Trade school maybe?
you know a trade school with a good reputation for mathematics?
Oh boy.... I said trade school because no school is going to waste their time one someone who calls themselves 'stupid and poor'.
Honestly, if you call yourself 'stupid', do you think a 'good school for math' is going to want to see your application?
university of michigan
university of georgia
many lac's give out scholarships. try them.
You'll probably get a decent undergrad education at most decent state schools. Schools are usually ranked on their individual programs at the graduate level, not so much undergrad. I go to Stony Brook, and we have a pretty good math dept. (#8 in the country for Geometry, last time I checked). Dirt cheap, if you are a NYS resident; still wouldn't be too expensive for you either, but nowhere near as cheap as for an in-stater.
cool man, thanks
I believe ohio state uses spivak for calculus. mathwonk is from UGA, and they also use spivak. the others are good as well. you should also try liberal arts colleges, as they focus primarily on undergraduate education. most give scholarships. smaller number of students + studying with experts = learning more.
Just curious, what did you mean by "stupid?" I know you were probably being modest, but as an out-of-stater, unless you are an amazing student, you could probably save your money and not apply to Berkeley, UCLA, and UMich.
yeah..i'm not incredibly stupid, just kinda spacey...i just me ant that i'm not one of those people who can multiply 5 digit numbers in their heads and such
i'm not not an amazing student, but not a bad one
i just love mathematics and would like to go to a school with a productive mathematical environment...with other students as passionate about the subject as i am
Yeah, that's what I thought. I often call myself stupid as well; hopefully I'm more modest than I am truthful.
Are you looking to stay on the West Coast? If I were you, and had really good grades/test scores/extra-curriculars, I'd try to go to a UC (like Berkeley).
no... i think you are misinterpreting it. he isn't saying poor is nothing but stupid. hes saying poor is nothing, but stupid will keep you out of places. i hope.
poor=stupid? maybe thats why our market hasn't been doing so good
i'm open to moving, doesn't really matter to me
i'd love to go to berkley...i'm going to try to go there for graduate school, i don't think i'll make the cut right now though
Cool. Well out here, I think some strong programs (state) are U of Maryland, Stony Brook, and Rutgers.
yeah, someone just mentioned stony brook ...i'll check that place out
I'm sure mathwonk would fully recommend that one
