I finished my bachelors a 2-3 years back in mathematics and working a pretty good job in New York in the tech industry, but I am having trouble deciding what to do next! My options are either continue down this route and become a product manager, go more heavily into software engineering through a bootcamp, or grab an MBA. I've always had interests in math/cs, applied physics, and neuroscience and would love to go to grad school to study these full-time with passionate students and teachers, but I have limited research experience (the result of being too focused on business in college), and wouldn't know how to get references. So far I've been trying the following approaches: 1) Self-study math, physics, cs as much as I can 2) email professors to do research in my spare time 3) do projects in my spare time to focus interest (building web apps, etc.) Eventually I'll take the GRE (did well on the GMAT, but I don't think any MS/PhD program takes that) and start applying next year. Am I taking the right approach? Would taking a job be better?
