Hey I'm a mathematics major and I am going to be applying to nuclear and aerospace engineering, astronomy, and physics REU's this summer. Most of the programs ask specifically for physics, chemistry, engineering, and computer science majors but make no mention of math majors. One of the main reasons I decided to do math was because math shows up in every science field, so I thought, "why choose a specific science when I could become a master at the tool which all of them use?" (that and my school does not offer physics or engineering). So will my math major keep me from being accepted into REU's in other fields this summer? I'm honestly not very interested in going and busting my *** at a Math REU in combinatorics or something like that which is pretty much inapplicable to the real world. I got an email from a lady at Penn State and she said they do not "typically" admit math majors, but they will take my application into consideration. She said math majors generally do very well in their N.E. Ph.d program, though.
