    UDub Seattle 2018 PhD admits

    Hey Ishika, I have not yet started looking for housing seriously. Just browsed few resources shared by the institute as part of U501 and by the department. I will mostly be taking an off campus housing since campus housing is on the expensive end with limited utilities. I was first planning to decide/ find potential flatmates and then go on to rigorously search for furnished apartments. What is your approach?

    UDub Seattle 2018 PhD admits

    That is great. Hope to meet you at the University.
  4. Hi Anyone joining the University of Washington in 2018? I am joining the Ph.D. program in statistics.
  5. Thank you for your reply. I am definitely more inclined towards UW myself, however, I still wanted to take opinion here since UT's stat is bayesian heavy (Not to say UW is not, in fact I feel that UW has a more balanced and diverse dept) and I am interested in Bayesian statistics. However, UT is not offering me admission in Stats but in IROM, given that I have limited knowledge of the same, I thought peers here might be able to share an opinion.
  6. Hi, I am in a very perplex situation and need your advice to take a decision: I did my undergrad and graduation in Mathematics and Scientific Computing from a leading Institute in India. Graduated in 2017 and working as an Analyst with a major European investment bank. My current research interests revolve around Bayesian statistics, statistical modeling (time series and regression) and model order selection. I do not have a specific preference between industry and academia post Ph.D. and would like to keep both options open and decide over time At the moment, I have accepts from Ph.D. programs in statistics from UW Seattle, NCSU, and OSU. I am waitlisted at UMich and will probably receive the decision next week (before 15th April). I got rejected from the Statistics Dept. at UT Austin, however a prof from the dept. has been trying to shift and get my application accepted to Information, risk and operations management (IROM) dept at McComb School of Business at UT Austin since most of the Statistics prof. are also associated with this dept. I do not have a lot of idea about the IROM dept at UT, however from initials gaze, it gives a vibe of a business school, rather than Statistics dept. One of my concerns is, whether the dept not being a pure statistics dept, Will this in any way affect my research? Or, the research/ thesis will be totally governed by the professor I am working with? Another concern is, will pursuing a Ph.D. in a non-statistics dept (although still doing statistics work) affect my chances in academia? Given my interests in Bayesian statistics, how would you rate UW Seattle Ph.D. program (pros: highly ranked [US NEWS Ranked 5th in statistics], diverse dept, interdisciplinary research) vs IROM UT Austin (pros: decently ranked in business schools [US news ranked 17th], Strong bayesian heavy statistics dept) vs NCSU (Pros: Highly ranked [US news ranked 10th in Statisitcs], very diverse dept, research triangle advantage)? I have not added OSU because I feel other options are stronger than it. Did not add UMich since I have not yet heard back from them on my waitlist status. But Please feel free to let me now your comments on the same, in case I missed something. All the opinions are welcome and will really appreciate your help. thanks!

    I am on the waitlist for both UW Seattle and UM Ph.D. Statistics. Request people who have better offers to please reject their offer asap so that I get the decision sooner. Thanks! Just one week to go!

    Anybody who received acceptance from NCSU Statistics Ph.D.? Did you get a mail titled NC State Statistics: Placements and Student Life somewhere around March 6th from the department? I am one of the accepted candidates there and apparently, I came to know today from the graduate coordinator that such a mail was circulated. It would be a great help if someone could direct message me the contents of the mail and any presentation that was circulated. If there have been any other updates from the department post the decision mail, please let me know the same. Thanks!

    Advice needed: I have a call scheduled with the Vice Chair of Graduate studies for Statistics department of Ohio State University. I have already received an offer for Ph.D. with Graduate Teaching assistantship and Fubrizol Startup scholarship. I was also nominated for University Fellowship, results of which are still pending. Did anyone receive a request for a similar phone call? If yes, can they advise on what will be the topic of discussion? Is it like an interview for University fellowship? Do I need to prepare something for this? Thanks!

    Yup exact same choices while I wait for few more results. But really not very positive about them. We can definitely discuss this choice in greater detail, since it will be beneficial to both of us.
