        1999-2004, Bachelor of Mathematics

        Many universities teach students how to write essays and exams. Waterloo taught me how to problem solve, to apply logic to new situations, to learn new technologies, and to be tenacious. All of those skills have been invaluable in the work place. With the foundation I received at UW, I've been able to work my way up the corporate ladder and had the opportunity to work for amazing companies in Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Silicon Valley.

        I'm so glad i chose Waterloo for my undergrad. There is one of the best AMATH program, and it's getting even better. I saw the degree requires to take more Matlab courses, which is a great way to get prepared for career or grad school. I've received some grad schools offers with nice amounts of funding.
