How do you apply?

In order to apply, you will need to prepare a brief personal statement.  (Suggested 2,000 character limit.) This statement can be used to express your educational and/or career goals, how you expect to further them by studying in the AMath/CFRM major, and to address any concerns about your record. The AMath Department actively seeks and welcomes students with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. You may also describe how your personal history (family, educational, cultural, and economic background) has influenced your intellectual development, interests, career plans, and goals. This can include relevant experiences outside the classroom or memorable classroom experiences. Additionally, you will need to submit an unofficial UW transcript.
