U of Florida vs Iowa State PhD program --Please help me decide for the college!! in Mathematics and Statistics Posted March 9, 2020 · Edited March 9, 2020 by sb052 I have been accepted to PhD programs for the upcoming Fall at the University of Florida (UF) and the Iowa State University (ISU). -> UF has a small program with younger faculty--most of them are recent graduates from ivy schools--while ISU has one of the largest Statistics department in the US. ->UF is ranked #40 this year and ISU is tied at #20 -> Both places have research that interests me -> UF has a better reputation as a research university in general Please help me decide on picking the school for myself. What factors should I consider before making a decision? Are there any current graduate students or alum from these schools who can give some pros and cons on the schools?
