"The exposure, the rigour, the way of approach we learn here in unparalleled. The Number Theory lectures were world-class, and the problem sets were the heart of the enrichment of the program… I got to meet a lot of people, which I couldn't have without being a Mehta Fellow to PROMYS. I learnt their ways, thought in their shoes, and interacted outside the circle I originally had. The exposure was incredible…Definitely. PROMYS is one of the best things that has happened to me, and I am looking forward to be a part of it as long as I can."
"PROMYS is more than a math experience. It is a way of thinking. Since I joined PROMYS in 2017 as a first year, I have been compelled to think deeply of the world around me, to Re-Think of the world in a new, rigorous ways, one that is helpful and fun at the same time. I also got to know about a 100 people from different parts of the world, and stay with them these 6 weeks and have a great time.
PROMYS is a rare and unique experience, which is both incredibly helpful in life and immensely educating. The fact that it focuses on going deep instead of broad keeps it distinguished from usual math experiences. One learns to dive deep into the subject, to truly understand how we got to where we are headed to, to get to know how to think rather than what to think.
PROMYS has been my keystone for inclination towards pure mathematics, and has affected me more than I could have possibly thought. Not only it has made me want to look deeper into things, but I don't feel satisfied until I am thorough with the working of the concept I am using at a fundamental level, which, as I now believe, is the essence of mathematics."
