Math Preparation-Differential Equations or Topics

ellenwondersellenwonders 2 replies1 threadsRegistered User New Member
If you finished Calculus AB, Calculus BC and Multivarate Calculus (that is Calculus I, II and III) by the end of your junior year in high school (and you received 5's on both AB and BC AP exams) and you wish to be admitted as a Math or Science major, which math course would the top admissions counselors prefer you to take as a senior? Should you choose differential equations or advanced topics in math?

    You have to be more specific. Differential Equations would be great if you're an engineering or physics or economics major or business major. Advanced topics would be great if you're a mathematics major or philosophy major or physics major that leans more toward theory.

    In other words, diff eq has more practical apps and is more calculation. Advanced is more proofs and pure math, with analysis.

    Either one looks great, as they are both advanced classes, so really it's not terribly important which you pick in terms of admissions factor. It would be great if you picked a class you enjoy, so you can possibly add it in to the essay and describe how nifty it was.
