  1. I would like to work as a data scientist and I want to get into data industry with no interest in PhD. I am confused between these two because - 1. Location: Columbia is in new york and thus a better place to be in terms of networking and opportunities while Durham is a small place. 2. Course structure: Duke's structure seems more serious and focused and would serious data companies fancy that as compared to Columbia? 3. Thesis & internship: Duke has a thesis, as well as internship requirement while Columbia doesn't. Does thesis matter to recruiters? Thanks a lot!
  2. Hi, If getting a job in companies like IBM,microsoft, amazon (basically tech) is the end goal of studying a program, which program is better? Thanks!
  3. Columbia and Uwash have started sending out decisions I believe.
  4. Hi there! Can somebody please advice me on the following universities- University of Washington or Duke university or Columbia U for Master's in Statistics ? The parameters to be considered are: 1. Job opportunities upon graduating - 1.1. Are plenty of jobs available? 1.2. Which field do you get into generally after graduating from that particular school- finance,IT,medicine? 2. Class size (Does class size matter?) 3. Workload and opportunities to learn Thanks a lot ! I am so very confused and would really appreciate some advice/opinion. Have a great day
