Fall 2021 Profile Evaluation for Nontraditional Master’s in Statistics Applicant in Mathematics and Statistics Posted March 2 · Edited March 2 by Plexor2 On 2/28/2021 at 12:51 AM, statats said: I am an international student but I've heard that for master's programs, it doesn't matter that much if you are domestic or international so I will just share my experience. I applied last year with pretty similar GRE(V159/Q169/W4.0), GPA(3.3), and course work with you but with Real Analysis and without any research experience (but I doubt this would matter that much for terminal Master's degree). I got admissions from several top 20-30 schools (mainly state universities in midwest) while I was rejected from The Ohio State University. I think OSU only admits a very few master's student and they offer TA positions to some master's students. I think master's admission for UC is quite competitive because of their locations regardless of their rankings. Admissions for master's programs is quite different from Ph.D programs. It highly depends on the size of the program and whether they pay their students and its location. That being said, I think you might have chance at FSU because they don't fund their students (They even sent some non-funding offers to their Ph.D admits last year). I didn't apply to any other schools that you listed, so I can't comment on them.What I can suggest is, go to their websites and see how many master's students they admitted last year. I hope you hear a good news from those schools soon! Thank you for responding. Fortunately, I received an acceptance letter from Mizzou yesterday, so I won't be shut out this application cycle. While filling out the FSU application, undergraduate GPAs are calculated using applicants' GPA during their last 60 semester hours, so I labeled FSU as one of my safer schools. Additionally, I am hoping that choosing to pursue assistantships hasn't hurt my chances at any schools, especially given that I probably won't need those assistantships in the end.
