  1. Sorry I'm not really sure as I'm primarily interested in their Statistics program. Definitely ask one of the departments.
  2. @aaaapvawgw they removed that program from the online application. I received an email in October that said: "We have decided to remove that joint program option from the on-line application. Instead, students interested in the joint Ph.D. degree in Statistics and Machine Learning should apply to the PH.D. program that best aligns with their research interests (PH.D. in Statistics or Ph.D. in Machine Learning)." This is also said here: http://www.stat.cmu.edu/phd/statml When did you submit your application?
  3. Specifically for PhD programs in Statistics, is there a consensus on when (if ever) extra letters of reference should be submitted? I have 5 potential letters, and I think they'll each be quite strong. If the schools I'm applying to allow for additional letters, do you think it's a good idea to submit all 5? It feels awkward talking about my research experience with a particular professor in my SOP and then not having a letter of reference from them. On the other hand, I don't want to irritate the committees with so many documents to read through. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
  4. Do you know which schools these might be? I remember reading somewhere that state schools prefer domestic applicants but I can't confirm that.
  5. Thanks for the reply. Yes I've checkout the previous threads and applicants with profiles similar to mine do pretty well. However, these are usually US applicants. Here in Canada, it is much easier to get in to grad school as a Canadian. I assumed that a similar phenomenon might exist in the US. Is this not the case?
  6. Hey, I am a Canadian looking to apply to (Bio)statistics programs for the Fall 2018 term. I think my profile would do pretty well at some Canadian universities, but I have no clue what my chances are at US universities and I don't want to spend too much money on a bunch of schools that will likely reject me. So here's my profile. Please let me know what you (honestly) think. Undergrad Institution: One of the big Math/Statistics schools in Canada (one of U of T, U of Waterloo, UBC) Major(s): Statistics and Math Minor(s): GPA: Cumulative: 3.89/4.0, Major: 3.93/4.0 Type of St
