Masters in Math

A photo of Matthew Matthew
Hey, my eventual goal is to get a masters degree in mathematics, while I know Waterloo Math/Business Administration would best prepare me for this, would a masters in mathematics still be an option if I go to Queens Commerce or UofT Rotman Commerce? My concern with Rotman commerce is that I heard the way UofT marks is that they expect every class to have an average of 66%, and if the class average is higher than that before exams, they make the exam really hard to bring the average down. If that's the case, then I don't really think I'd have the marks for grad school.

Any thoughts?

Your best bet would be to go to Waterloo and take every advanced math course offered, then start doing research as an undergrad. But I mean, it depends on the kind of grad degree you're looking for--pure math? Applied math? Financial math? I would focus your undergrad on figuring this out if you're not sure.

Plenty of people love academia and know they would like to continue in the field. Lots of my classmates know they'd already like to go to grad school before having finished even their first year of undergrad. I know I'd like to go to grad school, but the exact topic of study is still in the air :P
