  1. Hello, I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. I am finishing up my applications right now and I have seen that many offer an optional section in which you may provide information about yourself and how you contribute to diversity. Diversity and inclusion are important to me and, with everything going on in 2020, I figured I would miss a valuable opportunity by not answering these sections. These tend to be very brief statements (<1000 characters), so I was wondering if anyone would be willing to provide me with any feedback on mine. Thank you! "Through my personal experi
  2. ETS recently announced that it will not hold the September and October administrations of the GRE Math Subject Test, due to the pandemic. Given that many PhD Stat programs recommended/required it in the past, does anyone have an idea about how this might affect admissions and application evaluations for the current cycle? Thanks in advance!
  3. I see, thank you for your responses! As a follow up, if I were to not submit my score - say if I got <75% or just didn't take it - would that have an adverse effect on my application for those programs? Thanks again!
  4. Now that I'm looking more into PhD programs I see that many applications, particularly top 10, "strongly recommend" submitting GRE Math Subject Test scores. Would anyone mind advising me on how taking the exam and getting ~75% - 80% percentile would affect my application for those programs? Similarly, how would not taking the exam affect my application? I haven't even began studying for the exam yet, so I am trying to determine whether it is worth the effort. I'd be very grateful for any advice! Thank you!
  5. Hi, thank you so much for the quick response and encouraging words! I thought the same about what one would gain out of masters programs, but I figured I didn't have enough coursework in statistics to apply. I'll certainly look more into PhD programs in that case, and take your advice on the recommendation letters. I do have a follow up question regarding masters programs. Do you think I am competitive enough to get into a top 10 masters program? If so, would it be worth considering completing a masters at one of those institutions, and then applying to higher ranked PhD programs? Th
  6. Hi, I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe! I plan to apply to graduate statistics programs soon. I'm primarily interested in masters programs, as I don’t feel competitive/competent enough for a PhD. I would love if someone could help me understand where I stand and if my feeling is correct. I also am very nervous about the kinds of schools that are a viable, given my background. I‘d greatly appreciate any advice!
