    Fall 2019 Statistics Applicant Thread

    Is anyone still waiting to hear from Texas A&M?
  3. Okay I'll definitely look into that. Thanks for the advice!
  4. It's ranked in the top third of national universities in the U.S News and World Report actually (just looked it up). It's just a pretty small private school with an even smaller math department (dept only has one professor with a degree in statistics). I am very worried about my quant score, but I don't have the money to retake it unfortunately.
  5. Hi everyone! I would appreciate any feedback on my profile/school list. Undergrad: Small, private school GPA: 3.9/4.0 Majors: Math, Philosophy Minor: Actuarial Science Type of Student: Domestic, White Female Program: Ph.D. in Statistics GRE: 161(Q), 166(V), 4.5 (AW) Industry Experience: Interned at the Census Bureau as a mathematical statistician trainee. I worked on a demand modeling project and an internal survey. Research Experience: Nothing substantial Awards: Full tuition undergrad scholarship, departmental award for mathematics performance, national honor society scholarship. Letters of Rec: 3 strong letters from professors who know me well. One taught my intro proofs and abstract algebra class, one who taught several of my prob/stat classes, and third from the department chair who also taught one of my statistics classes. Courses: Real analysis, complex variables, graduate-level statistical inference, probability and statistics, statistics for engineers, econometrics, linear algebra, multivariable calc, differential equations, financial mathematics, group theory, ring theory. (A's and A-'s in all of these courses). Schools: UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke, NC State, VA Tech, Texas A&M I'm worried about my lack of research experience and low GRE Q score. My school is small and only has one professor who is focused on probability and statistics. The department is just starting to offer undergraduate research opportunities so I kind of missed out.
