+ - Ask Slashdot: How do I join the math geeks?

Submitted by phrackwulf
phrackwulf (589741) writes "In college I majored in materials science and now support myself as a contract engineer providing various technical services to a wide variety of companies. As I've gotten older, I've found myself more and more attracted to big data analytics and combinatoric and applied math because of the idea of using math to solve real world problems and a lifelong passion for mathematical logic. My question is this, what does someone in their mid thirties do to get admitted to a graduate program in applied mathematics? What undergraduate work should I consider doing first and what types of things would make me more marketable to a school with a highly competitive program?"
