I am going to tell you about an experience that I achieved the meritorious winner, the third level of the award, in the Mathematical Contest in Modeling. It is an annually-held competition that originated in the United States, now attracting thousands of international teams of three undergraduates or postgraduates to participate. Candidates have to analyze the given question, establish a model for it and then write a formal academic paper within 96 hours.
As a student majoring in social science, my specialty lies in the analysis and essay writing. So to win this competition, the first thing I did was to find two teammates from the mathematics department to make up for this shortcoming. Thanks to social media, I easily found the contact details of two straight-A students and asked if they would like to team up with me. This article is from laokoaya website. I had expected it would take some persuasion, but quite to my surprise, they said yes soon after I introduced this competition.
Because of its intense schedule, we had clearly divided the task to maximize our efficiency. On the first day, we together analyzed the problem, decided on its key elements, and came up with our solution. Then they started building the model, and I took a rest to store enough stamina for the later paper writing. In the last 12 hours, we came together again to discuss if there was any place to perfect and did the final revision.
I was so excited to learn that we won the award, not only because it proved that we were better than most other teams around the world, but also because it would be a highlight on my resume, gaining me a sharp edge in the competitive labor market and helping me find a decent job.
