Hey, everyone. I will be an NU freshman this fall and I am admitted to the Weinberg as an econ major. I just recently found this MMSS program and I am very interested in it. I was originally thinking about double majoring math or statistics and economics as what I really like is math and statistics. I plan to go for either graduate school for PhD in economics or get an MBA degree. Any info about this program please? In addition, I think I should apply for this for sophomore year not this year. So, how can I prepare for that?
How tough is it to get into?
Here are my stats:
SAT I: 640 V 800 M
SAT II: Math IIC 800 Writing 740 etc. 720 and 790
AP Statistics: 4
AP Calculus BC: score not received yet but expecting at least a 4.

Sorry i totally meant to reply to this a long time ago but i was just too lazy to go to my email and get you the information i have.
Okay, i was interested in this program before until i realized it wasnt quite what i expected. one of my friends goes to northwestern and this is what she sent me about the program in an email:
The closest thing we
have is MMSS (mathematical modeling for the social sciences) which
gets you all ready for business school and consulting and stuff (its a
really small program that my roommate just happens to be in, so here
is the down low on what she said). Everyone in the program double
majors since MMSS is an adjunct major thing. But it is also very
selective and you have to apply to get in. so if you want to do this
thing, here is what you do: first, call the MMSS people and sound VERY
enthusiastic and like you VERY VERY VERY much want to be in the
program. Ask if they will allow someone in the school of
communications into the program and ask if you can still apply. Here
is the link for their website:
She warns that it is after the deadline to apply, but to
call and try anyway because she and a bunch of other people in the
program right now all got in after the deadline. So the deadline is
really more of a "guideline" as to when to turn the application in.
Also, the program is heavily math based - with multivariable calculus
and linear algebra and stuff. SO be prepared for that if you choose to
do it. Don't be scared away though - its really not that bad :-)
Okay so that is what the email says. sorry if its confusing. I hope it gave you some information!!!
