  1. The only place it is necessary for is Stanford. So generally it makes absolutely no difference whatsoever

    Deadline Predicament - Advice Needed

    Both UCI and Michigan have good reputations. You cant go wrong with either program. I would email the chair of the department at Michigan and tell him you want to visit and go as soon as you can. How much does cold weather bother you?

    Yale vs. Columbia Statistics PhD

    http://www.yalescientific.org/2012/04/the-story-of-science-at-yale-part-ii-sizing-up-science-at-yale/ Over the years I have heard stories of inadequate funding and staffing for some of their STEM programs. Here is a petition by the CS students from a couple of years ago http://www.businessinsider.com/yale-computer-science-petition-2015-3

    Yale vs. Columbia Statistics PhD

    Yale doesn’t have a good reputation in most STEM fields. They are working on improving it. I would go with Columbia especially if you want to go into industry
  5. @moxis I am not a nationalist. Sorry to disappoint you. I am about as Blue as you can get. Sorry to burst your sexist bubble. It is called the #metoo movement. And yes I do believe if the people of the US are paying for a large portion of Stanfords budget then most of the benefits should go to domestic applicants. Your bullying and name calling tactics will not scare or deter me if that was your goal. You were wondering how nationality can be determined. It is called websites and linkedin. You may want to look into those concepts. Best of luck to you.
  6. If the professors are sextist and violate title 9 they are not esteemed and need to be fired immediately . They are disgusting human beings. At least 50 per cent of the students should be domestic because taxpayers are giving huge breaks to Stanford as well as the federal government providing huge amounts of research funding. Also I dont believe that 90 per cent of the best students exist outside of the US or that virtually all of them are male. FYI there is a huge battle going on at UC over this issue http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-uc-audit-admissions-20160328-story.html
  7. When you get federal, state and local tax breaks as well as a large share of your income comes from the federal government at least 50 per cent if not significantly more of your students should be domestic. The percentage shouldnt hover around 10 per cent. When you say they have a "badass biostats group too" is that meant to imply they violate title 9 and Brock Turner is their hero?
  8. Not sure how Stanford could have a 5.0 rating since they do largely theoretical statistics and probability They also have a reputation as being very sexist. Only around 10 per cent of their professors are women. A minisicul amount of their grad students are women and virtually all of their grad PhD students appear to be international. Who are the people doing the ratings?

    I just called UW and talked to the department. They said committee was still meeting and it would be end of January or early February for decisions. They got behind

    @sheldoncopper How would your cousin know that?
  13. What does it take to get into a top 10 program? My GPA is 3.65. MY GRE is in 90th percentile range. I have taken lots of math classes including RA in HS and grad level math classes in college. I have taken a number of grad level stats classes. Is that enough?
