    Fall 2019 Statistics Applicant Thread

    Has anyone heard back from UVA or Wake Forest for their waitlists?
  2. My advice is to apply to both, most importantly apply to masters programs you’d want to go to that will pay you. You’ll kick yourself if you don’t apply for PhDs but if it turns out none of them accept you you’ll kick yourself for not having a good back up plan.

    Help me decide

    I attend a large state university, not exactly known for its prestige but an R1 research university. And I applied to many public universities for PhDs, almost exclusively Big10 schools and then UVA, UMBC, and UMass

    Help me decide

    I have plenty of math and statistics course (theoretical probability and stats, design of experiments, linear algebra, real analysis 1 to name a few) but my GPA isn’t as high as it could be, my math GPA is decent but chem courses from my other major. I also have a lot of research experience in biology

    Help me decide

    Hey guys, I am very much struggling to decide where to attend for next semester, and was hoping an outside point of view could help. I am hoping to earn my PhD in statistics one day, but have only been accepted for Masters programs this cycle. So my goal is to enter a program that will help me for the next time I apply to PhD programs. Here are the programs I am considering currently: Bowling Green State University MS in ASOR Pros: Good funding, may still need loans but a minimal amount. Have been told this is a good route for attending the PhD program at OSU. Cons: Location Through the schools business college, whereas my interests are in applications to scientific research. University of Maryland - Baltimore County MS statistics Pros: Location, in-state Have been told by director that if I show promise they will advance me to the PhD track Research focused university Cons: No funding (although money may be available but not until August) Faculty throughout the college have been hard to keep in touch with, and I have not heard back from anyone after some follow up emails. I am also on waitlists for UVA PhD and Wake Forest MA, I’d say I have an okay shot at wake forest and a very long shot for UVA. What is your guys advice in this situation? I am struggling and any help is very much appreciated!
  6. Hey guys, I applied to UMBC for a PhD but was accepted for an MS as they have a policy to not accept recent undergraduates to their PhD program. I still would very much like to go to this program, especially with how well known UMBC is for their research in all areas. However, I was not offered a first semester assistantship and, as much as I would like to invest the money into this education, I would have to take in a great deal of new loans. That being said, I was told by the program director that many masters students find jobs in other programs and that the program may be able to offer some tuition assistance (although they will not know until about August). I am looking into on campus jobs but I am struggling to find any openings online. Has anyone had experience finding jobs outside of their department? How did you go about doing this, and do you have any general advice? Thank you all so much for your assistance

    Does anyone have any opinion on the Applied Statistics program at bowling green state university? There are other programs I’ve gotten into for a masters but they’re the only one so far to give me a good funding offer

    Has anyone heard from Rutgers since they accepted the first group? At this point I assume rejection, but it seems odd that they haven’t said anything.

    When is it acceptable to email about a waitlist? I was waitlisted to Wake Forest in early March and wasn't sure when I should ask about the chances of making the cut.

    Anyone else hear back from UVA today? I was waitlisted just now and I was wondering about how long the list of accepted students is/ how many of you are planning on declining the offer

    Checked my UMass Application today, I applied for both the PhD and MS there. It no longer lists my application as a PhD application but says "Academic Plan- Statistics MS," Not sure if this means they're close to making decisions Edit: It also lists the plan as on their Newton satellite campus, so their decisions could be interesting this year

    I was accepted to UMBC, however the acceptance letter says MS rather than PhD. Did anyone else apply to this program and get a similar result? I had not been asked to be considered for a masters, so I am unsure if this is a clerical error or not.

    Whoever posted on the results page about UMass sending out PhD admissions already, how do you know this? I was recently asked for my transcripts and am not sure if this is for masters or if there’s still a chance for PhD admissions.
