  1. I see what you're saying, it would definitely be advantageous to have analysis on my transcript already. Sadly, I didn't start looking into applying to PhD programs until earlier this year so I didn't have as much time to prepare as I would have liked. Does this still apply? I figured since most of the schools on the list above are outside the top 20 that I would have a decent shot at them, especially since I'll have taken analysis before graduating. Perhaps it would be more reasonable to swap out UT, Ohio State, and FSU with Baylor, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt (or a similarly ranke
  2. Hi everyone, sorry to post again, but I wanted to ask one last time: How realistic is my list of schools, and should I should apply to more safeties? As a brief update to my profile, below are some things that have changed since I first posted my profile: Calc 3 (A), Currently enrolled in Fundamentals of Mathematics (proofs) and a bunch of stat classes. Taking Real Analysis next semester. Been doing research with Bayesian statistics since June, hopefully submitting a publication soon, but probably not before application deadlines. Took GRE and scored 162Q 158V 5.5AWA. Nearly half of
  3. Thanks for the input everyone, that's helpful. I'll take the GRE again. Assuming I score somewhere between at least 163-165, how does my list of schools look? And are there other good Bayesian programs I could target that I haven't included (and that aren't in California)? Either Stat or Biostat.
  4. Just to get some further advice, I finished Calc 3 with an A this summer, and will be taking Fundamentals of Mathematics (proofs) and a few 400-level stat classes this Fall. In January I'll start my Theory of Analysis 1 class (so the grade in that class will not be able to be reported on applications). I retook the GRE, but my Q score is still stuck at 160 (even though I was getting 165+ on practices). Should I retake the GRE, or will my GPA and other criteria be enough to compensate? I'm not exactly a fan of standardized testing but I'll retake it if it'll affect my chances that muc
  5. Thanks, that's helpful. I'm not sure why I did so poorly on the quantitative section of the GRE, so hopefully I'll be able to improve it a decent amount when I take it again in August. Since I will just be starting my Theory of Analysis class by the time applications are due, do you think that will affect my application, or will they basically assume I will perform well based on past performance in other classes? I'm guessing it's something I should probably just address in my SoP's.
  6. Thanks for your reply! That makes sense. However, I will be applying to programs at the same time that I'll be taking my analysis course. Do you think that would be a big deal when it comes to admissions? Also, I have looked into some biostatistics programs but not much. I'll be sure to do some more research on those. Thanks for the suggestions!
  7. I will be a senior this upcoming semester and am trying to finalize where I will apply (and where I have a decent chance of getting accepted) for Stats PhD programs (open possibly to Biostats as well). I'm mostly interested in doing research in bayesian statistics / machine learning, but that could change. Thanks for your input! Undergrad Institution: mid-sized private school (~ top 100 math department) Major(s): Statistics Minor(s): Math GPA: Current 4.0 Type of Student: Domestic male GRE General Test: Q:160 (I'm retaking the GRE in August to hopefully get around the 165+ ran
