  8. Hey guys! So I just had my midterm evaluation where my school supervisor came to observe some of my sessions and then she and my site supervisor came up with a list of strengths and weaknesses. My skills during the session were all rated great but I thought some of the weaknesses were a little ridiculous. For example, one weakness was that I don't ask enough questions. I have explained that this is just who I am as a person and have always been that way. I have never been someone who asks many questions. I learn by observing and then actually doing it myself. When I do have questions thou
  9. Hi, I know I have a very weak academic profile, but I was wondering if I'd have any chance to get into a Stat PhD program, say top 30-40 ish. I'm currently majoring in Mathematics and Statistics at UChicago. To give you a little explanation about my low GPA, I was not thinking about academia and was mainly looking for a job in Finance until 2nd quarter of my junior year. The job I was seeking for doesn't really care about what kind of courses I take, so I took a lot of junk classes in order to compensate for my low math grades. UChicago by itself is a pretty harsh grader (GPA 3.25/4.
  10. I appreciate any feedback! I know my profile is very very VERY weak, I was not aware that I wanted to apply for PhD programs until a few months ago, and I wasn't trying my hardest Freshman, Sophomore year. However, I just want to know if I have a chance getting into ANY PhD program for Statistics or Data Science. I'd prefer schools in the NJ, PA, NY, MD, DE area! Please be honest with me, if I have no chance getting into any PhD programs in any school, I need to know!

  12. I was wondering how important the teaching evaluations you get from undergrads in the sections you TA are to a teaching portfolio. My evals aren't bad, they just aren't good either. In terms of scores on various questions I've been scoring a bit below the department average for all classes. How much do schools care about getting a 4.0/5 on a Likert scale when the average is 4.2/5? What does matter most in terms of teaching portfolios?
  13. Argument Q. Woven baskets characterized by a particular distinctive pattern have previously been found only in the immediate vicinity of the prehistoric village of Palea and therefore were believed to have been made only by the Palean people. Recently, however, archaeologists discovered such a "Palean" basket in Lithos, an ancient village across the Brim River from Palea. The Brim River is very deep and broad, and so the ancient Paleans could have crossed it only by boat, and no Palean boats have been found. Thus it follows that the so-called Palean baskets were not uniquely Palean.
  14. I got my first set of course evaluations back today. This is the first time I've ever taught a course as the instructor of record. The course consisted of me teaching two classes of 30 psych students how to use the statistical software SPSS. I'm not entirely sure how to determine how I faired. For my overall instructor score, I got a 4.61 and a 4.63. There weren't any awful comments or anything like that. At most, there were a few comments about having more grades in the class and making the midterm worth less. However, I don't have much control over how the course runs. Would these score

Also going to graduate
  17. Hi all, This year I am applying for some top universities AeroAstro graduate programs : MIT, Stanford, Caltech, ... but I don't really know if I have a competitive profile. Could you guys tell me what you think? I am currently in third Bachelor year of polytechnic engineering at the Belgian Royal Military Academy. My score average for the last two years is 15/20 (last year 15.7/20) but there's only one guy in the school who's got more than 16/20, so I am very good. I am also formed in military fields : command, management, combat, sports, etc. I skipped three grades in elementar
  18. So I've got kind of a unique situation and posted a very similar question over in the Economics subform, however I am also exploring PhD programs in PoliSci/IR and would like to get similar feedback on those. I'm currently a JD student at Yale Law School but I very much would like to be able to transition into academia at some point, perhaps sooner than later. While I initiated my legal education with a major focus on public policy and government work, I feel like graduate studies in a social science field would be beneficial in a number of ways including allowing me to keep the door open to t
  19. Hey New gradcafe user and prospective MS applicant for an MS in Operations Research / Statistics / Management Science for Fall 2018.

  20. I will be applying for Masters (and possibly some PhDs) in Statistics for Fall of 2018. I was hoping to hear how competitive my profile is at some of my target schools. Stanford (MS) is my dream school, so I'm most interested in feedback there. I'm concerned about whether to retake the GRE, since the average listed score at Stanford is a perfect score (97%).
