I will be entering my third year of undergrad this fall in the process of earning my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics. My current stats for school such as GPA is 3.74 (no research experience, already taking upper-level undergrad mathematics courses, maybe a few grad courses). However, I am VERY confused about the graduate school, and I hope maybe someone can give me some information/advice/answer some of the questions that I have. I just want to know a few things about graduate school (especially when you go to grad school for Mathematics). I am really interested in maybe getting a Masters of Science of Applied/Financial Mathematics or a PhD in applied mathematics. But I am wondering a few things: 1. What do students DO in graduate school, especially for applied math? 2. What type of research can one do if they were in a Master/PhD program in grad school? 3. How can you tell when a grad school is "good" for you? I am just really confused and I am worried if I can get in to grad school. I have not taken the general OR Math subject GREs.
