Thanks Gauss2017. One of my letter writers is in stats (Bayesian). As you said, it'd be nice if I had more people from stats writing for me. The stats classes were larger (thus harder to get a good rec), I took less of them, and I've already graduated so sadly I can't change much about that. Thanks for your input!
Thanks bayessays. Maybe I'm overcompensating for the fact that I felt like I lacked depth in my mentioned 'research interest' last year, and only now I see that it could work against me. Do you think it could hurt carefully expressing the excitement about the possibilities in a very narrow field after showing general interest in a broader field (Bayesian statistics)? Also, will definitely look into his work. Cheers
