Phd Th.Maths VS Masters Comp. Maths

  1. Apr 26, 2012 #1
    Long story short: I got into a lower ranked school for PhD in Mathematics and a top ranked school for Masters in computational mathematics. My interest is theory and my only reason for applying to computational program was as a backup. What I ultimately want to do is mathematics(analysis) and I am kind of confused what I should do

    (A) Do the masters, take some grad courses and reapply to top schools
    (B) Just do straight PhD Maths which is what I want to do

    I could see pros and cons in both and I was hoping if people who have been in this path could share their wisdom
