Julian Cortes, ALB

Where will you be living next year, and what will you be doing?
New York, NY – I am starting my MSc in Mathematics at NYU Courant. I will be in NY for the next year and half. After that I will apply to PHD programs in Mathematics

What advice do you have for Harvard HES students, now that you have graduated?
Have your goal in mind all the time. My goal has always been to pursue an academic career in mathematics. I took pretty much all the Math classes that HES offered plus 6 graduate level classes at the college through the special student program. The ALB program opened the doors to many great graduate programs that I would have never thought I would be able to attend.

In what ways has your Harvard Extension degree impacted your career?
My career has changed completely. I used to work in advertising, now I am a full time student seeking to enter the world of academia.
