I'm currently a math major (just beginning; minoring in physics) and I've been looking into different grad schools...trying to make sure I'm prepared when it comes time to apply. I'm not sure if I want to go to grad school for math or physics. So, here are my questions: For math, I know one of the schools I'm looking at has a language requirement (translating a math paper from Russian or German). I've heard that in quite a few colleges this requirement may eventually be waived. Does anyone know about that? And is there a language requirement for physics grad school? In applying to grad schools for either of these programs does anyone know how much your undergrad school matters? I'm currently attending the University of Alaska Anchorage (not noted for math or physics, but not bad, either). I can finish my math degree here or transfer to a more well known school in a couple years. Oh, right now I'm looking at UNLV (Vegas), Purdue (Indianapolis), and a couple colleges in Texas. I'm open to others, though, if anyone has recommendations! I don't know if this will matter, but I'm 33 and will obviously not be ready for grad school until I'm 37, as I'm just starting. I currently have a 3.64 GPA. Thank you for the help!
