Online degree -> Grad School in the USA

    Online degree --> Grad School in the USA

    Hi,

    I need a plan B, in case I don't get into the universities I applied to. (highly selective) My local university doesn't have an applied math major nor a stats one and they don't allow double majors. I was wondering if I could do an online degree and with that, apply to grad school. Is that realistic? Getting recommendation letters would be tricky but I know a prof in the Maths department, so maybe I could work something out, try get involved with research?

    Cheers
