Hello, I'm an undergraduate who's going to be a senior this coming fall. I'm currently triple majoring in Mathematics/Engineering Physics/Biological Engineering. I'm also looking to enter graduate school in applied mathematics. My schedule for this last year all fits together quite well, except that a required course for the Biological Engineering major conflicts with Topology. I'm now debating dropping the Biological Engineering major just to take Topology. My Question is: How important is Topology for someone looking at applied math graduate schools? I'm aiming for high level graduate programs, and am wondering if not having topology on my transcript will be a major setback in applied math, i.e. it would be better to drop the third major. Just so everyone knows, here is the total list of math & related classes that I'll have when I graduate: Real Analysis I&II Linear Algebra & Abstract Algebra (Both upper level) Graduate Real Analysis Complex Analysis Numerical Analysis I&II Differential Geometry Nonlinear Dynamics/Chaos Mathematical Physics I&II Note I'm studying topology on my own currently, So I will hopefully be prepared for Diff. Geometry when I take it. Also, while I haven't take a PDE course formally, I am currently doing a PDE heavy REU that I hope will make up for it. Also, dropping the Biological Engineering major at this point will only make enough room for one more math class in addition to topology. Thanks in advance for any opinions, and if anyone else has other advice they'd like to give about my situation I'd be glad to hear it.
