  1. Thanks for the reply! I'd love to go to all of those schools for a PHD, but it's not worth being away from my family for five years. Do you think I have a chance of getting into UChicago for a masters?
  2. Hello, I was wondering if someone could give me some odds. Undergrad Institution: Decently large state school, but not much research is done. The school tends to be ranked around 75-100 in the U.S News National School Rankings. Major(s): Math and Stats (not a duel major; one major the combines the two). Co major in analytics. GPA: 3.6 (major: 3.75) Type of Student: Domestic Hispanic Male GRE General Test: Q: 170 (97%) V: 165 (95%) W: 5.0 (93%) GRE Subject Test in Mathematics: 780 (76th percentile) Research Experience: Two different projects. One in statistics and one in economics. Both involved doing regressions. Courses: Math: Calc 2 (A), Calc 3 (A-) Linear Algebra (A), Proofs (A), Diff Eqs (A-), Abs. Algebra (B+), Real Analysis (A), Optimization (A), Probability (A), Regressions (A-), Inferential Statistics (A-), Statistical Programming (B). Taking this year: Statistical Learning, Data Visualization, Bayesian Statistics. I've also taken plenty of programming courses and am proficient in Java, SAS, and R. Letters of Recommendation: 2 from Research Advisors, one from a statistics professor. Programs Applying: PHD: UChicago Northwestern UIC Masters: UChicago Purdue Iowa State Michigan Wisconsin Madison Champagne Concerns: I'm mostly worried about my letters of recommendation. The professors are not very well known. I'm also concerned about my schools low ranking and the fact that I haven't/won't take any grad courses. If you could give feedback, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
