Being an international student
Hello, everyone. I am new to this website and I posted my profile because I honestly had no idea where to start in looking for schools to apply for. I basically listed most of the schools on the US News top 40 list for statistics (minus biostat programs).
I would really appreciate any sort of feedback, especially regarding school range. Also, any recommendations for schools that I failed to mention above would be extremely appreciated as well!
I read from other posts that the standards for international students are much higher than for domestic students, so it was harder for me to get an idea of where I stand.
Thank you in advance!
