  1. Will you be visiting Iowa State next week? If so I'll see you there! Also, I'll be visiting Purdue next Tuesday so DM me if you want to hear about that! I'm choosing between Iowa State, and Purdue, UIUC (and OSU) so it looks like we have a similar decision to make. I've found from visiting UIUC and OSU that visiting the department and getting a picture of how well I'd fit in means at least as much to me as rankings and reputation. So, I definitely recommend you visit both before deciding. In addition, you'll get a better idea of which faculty are currently doing research that is interesti
  2. Thanks for your advice Bayesian 🙂 After visiting UIUC I think I'm pretty sure I won't be headed to OSU... I really enjoyed the visit and definitely like I'd fit better in Illinois. Now to visit the other two in the next few weeks!
  3. You're right about Nate's poster, Dr. Craigmile does do Spatial research. I'm mainly concerned that Dr. Calder is leaving OSU, as I was even more interested in her research and applications. You make a good point about visualization focused profs, as that's an interest of mine as well. I'll need to dive further into ISU's directory before the visit day. I'm not too concerned about living by a big city, as far as my hobbies go I'm more outdoor oriented 🙂 That being said the music scene in Chicago is pretty good... Thanks for asking some good questions to follow up on!
  4. As of yesterday I've heard back from all of the schools I applied to, and now I'm trying to decide where to go! I'm interested in doing research in Spatio-temporal stats as well as Bayesian stats (seems to be some amount of overlap between the two), so am looking into advisors with experience in those areas. I'm open to other research areas as well, as I'm sure my interests will change as I get more involved in the field. By the rankings Iowa State seems to have an edge over the others, but it seems like the research fit is still most important. I know Mark Kaiser is there, but not entire
  5. Update from my last post - just heard from Purdue. Accepted with half time assistantship, should be an interesting offer. Good luck to anyone still waiting!
  6. Can anyone who applied to Purdue's PhD program speak to the results posted earlier? I haven't heard anything yet from them but things aren't looking too great with the no TA acceptance and the accepted to Masters not PhD deal. @BL250604 I was at that visit as well if you end up wanting some information! A lot of people there (including myself) weren't 100% set on going there since visits are still going on for other schools, but I definitely have a better opinion of the program after visiting.
  7. Rejection from CMU, email said to check website. No surprise after NCSU! Looks like a few others got the email. On the other hand who else will be at OSU this weekend?
  8. Thanks roadrunner! I'll be at the visit day as well, seems like a very interesting program. I just read on CMU's website that there's about 10 people in each entering class, so I'm not too optimistic for my chances but still excited to hear back. Seems like they put out some acceptances around this time last year so hopefully we'll see soon.
  9. Got rejected from NC State earlier... oof. That was my first choice by far so should make for a more interesting few months of deciding where to go ?
  10. Congrats to whoever got accepted to CMU! Has anyone else heard from them today?
  11. Last year today (Friday 26) NC state sent all the waitlists... but since their first round of acceptances was before the app deadline I'm holding out hope
  12. Not yet! Think I remember their first acceptances were Feb 1st last year
  13. I'm interested to hear more about this as well. OP, here are a couple threads where active forum members have mentioned UIUC's reputation (just use crtl + f)
  14. Still waiting on NC state as well! Based on past years seems like there will be another round or two of acceptances before they start waitlisting, good luck to everyone else still waiting!
