  1. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about how the data science/analytics + public policy Masters programs compare with each other and how they're regarded in the policy world (esp. social policy)? I recently got into the Harris MSCAPP (Computational Analysis and Public Policy) program at UChicago and it's my top choice, but I'm also considering applying to some other programs (below). Let me know what you think! Georgetown McCourt - M.S. Data Science for Public Policy CMU - M.S. Public Policy Management: Data Analytics Track UPenn - M.S. Social Policy + Data Analysis

  4. Hi all! I'm a nontraditional applicant coming from a biology and engineering background and wondering if I could get some advice on what schools I should apply to given my background? I'm applying to MS in Data Science and Statistics programs for Fall 2021. My goal is to transition to an industry position in Data Science (or related). I've been pretty strong with the math classes I've taken so far, but I worry that a lack of more stats and proof-based courses puts me at a disadvantage. Ethnicity/Demographic: Male Caucasian (European Background) Undergrad 1: ~95-100 ranked US Universi
  5. Hey all, First and foremost thank you for reading my profile evaluation. I'd love to hear your feedback on my stats, the programs I've selected, my chances of admission, and if there are any programs that you'd suggest I consider given my profile. I am a student with a non-STEM background and I have the bare minimum prerequisite courses to apply to these programs (with good grades thankfully). I am hoping that through my GRE score and LOR/SOP (which I'm still writing) I'll be able to catch the attention of at least one admissions committee, and secure a spot in one of these programs.
  6. I'm new here, so I apologize if I ask too many questions! Basically, I'm currently a senior at NYU and in May I'll be graduating with a B.A. in Math and Psychology. Going into my senior year, I had been planning on applying to several Ph.D. programs in Data Science and Statistics and my career goal was to be a data scientist. However, upon meeting with the professor whose lab I do research in, he stated that it would be very difficult for me to get into any Ph.D. program with only a year of undergraduate research experience. So, I applied to 6 Masters programs and the Ph.D. in Data Science pro
  7. (Please consider scrolling to the bottom for some of my concerns. I suffer from anxiety and I know I'm needlessly stressed, but any pointers are immensely helpful.) Student Type: International Asian (Brown) Female Undergrad: Small university known in academic circles Major: Computer Science (might complete my math minor next sem) GPA: 3.91/4.0 (Major GPA 3.94/4) Relevant Courses: Calc 1, Multivariable Calculus (2&3 combined), Linear Algebra, Probability & Stats, Intro to ML, Advanced ML, independent study (somewhat of a research project, basically assisting a
  8. Hello! I'm currently a rising sophomore with a tentative goal to do graduate studies in Statistics or Data Science. I was wondering what pure/applied math or stats upper division courses you would recommend that would give me a firm foundation? Here is the math course browser: https://www.ucsd.edu/catalog/courses/MATH.html I was thinking about taking one of the Algebra classes with Intro to Numerical Analysis, but I am not sure. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi everyone! First time posting here. I was looking for some feedback on my profile and what kind of universities I should be targeting. I'm not looking for a PhD, want to gain better knowledge of Data Science to improve my career prospects. Looking for universities in both US and UK. Degree: B.E. (Hons.), Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering, BITS Pilani Goa (Tier 1 university in India), CGPA: 7.8/10 GRE General: 336 (Q 170, V 166, AWA 4.5) Had taken the TOEFL in 2018, will need to take it again this year. Score last time around: 112 (W:29 R:29 L:29 S:25) Grades in Relevant cours
  10. Hello everyone! So I've been accepted into both schools online Data Science/Data Analytics Engineering programs. I'm having a difficult time deciding which to pick. My end goal is to move into a PhD program in computational neuroscience/cognitive psychology upon completing the program. I didn't expect to get accepted into UVA so once I got GMU's acceptance I accepted and was registered for my first class so if I decide to switch programs it would be a bit of process. A few points to consider: - UVA's program will leave me with double the out-of-pocket(~14.5k vs 7.3k) cost eve
  11. I can't seem to find much about people applying to data science and analytics masters programs so I thought I'd start one myself. I'm super frustrating with not being able to find information on when decisions will be sent out, so I'm hoping find out if anyone has heard from anywhere. I've applied to: Chicago's MA in Computational Social Science Chicago's Masters in Analytics Georgetown's Masters in Analytics (focus in data science) Northwestern's MS in Analytics LSE Applied Social Data Science and Data Science masters programs I just found out
  12. Hi, I did my engineering in electronics and have 3 years of work-ex as a data scientist. I'm interested in working as a data scientist in a social impact firm upon graduating and I'm quite confused between the mentioned programs. I have received 50% scholarship from both programs at UChicago and none from NYU. Any insights into any of these programs would be greatly appreciated!
  13. Hi everyone, I'm confused between two programs - 1. MS in Data Science at NYU CDS (No aid, $80k tuition for 2 years) 2. MS in Computational Analysis and Public Policy at the University of Chicago. ($40k aid, $60k tuition for 2 years) As an international student with background in data science in the tech industry, I'm keen on working as a data scientist in social impact firms. Understandably such jobs are rare in the US and I'm concerned about the financial aspects of repaying the loan. The NYU degree will help me land a well-paying job after graduation using which I can p
  14. Hi everyone, I am an international student accepted to these two programs for Fall 2020. I am struggling to decide which one to go. 1. Georgetown's MS in Data Science and Analytics program (no financial aid, $70k total for 1.5 years) 2. UChicago's MA in Computational Social Science program (interdisciplinary focus) (2/3 financial aid, $40k total after aid for 2 years). My goal after graduation is to find a data scientist position in consulting/tech industry. I plan to work for a few years in the U.S. first, and then apply to PhD in social science (business, public po
  15. I received offers of admission from UChicago Harris (MSCAPP) and CMU Heinz (MSPPM: DA track), and I'm certain that there are others out there facing the same choice. For what it's worth, Heinz has offered more funding than Harris (once again, I doubt that I'm the only one in this situation). I'm not even sure how to weigh the pros and cons of the two programs. To people who are currently in one of the programs, how do you feel about it? And to those trying to decide between the two options (or held offers from both places in previous years), what factors did you consider?
  16. I am admitted to the master of data science program at Harvard and MIIS at CMU. I am trying to decide between the two programs. Harvard's brand name is really attractive, but I don't know if a master is considered an alumnus. And also CMU is number 1 in CS field. I went to Umich for undergraduate and I majored in computer science. My current career goal is to become an SDE or data scientist after graduating from grad school. But I didn't completely rule out the possibility of getting a Ph.D. I would really appreciate any advice!
  17. Just wanna start a post for Columbia Data Science 2019 fall applicants. Has anyone heard back yet? Or what is your process?
  18. I'm interested in applying to Stats and Data Science MS programs. The USNWR and AMSTAT top schools list is helpful (for stats), but I'd like to see a larger list. I've come across some interesting programs just by looking up x school (not on the best ranked lists) and looking up programs they're offering. Does anyone know of any resources that post a list of all data science programs and/or statistics programs in the United States? This resource from CSU East Bay is kinda what I'm looking for, but it's dated. Looking up data science programs is trickier-- no USNWR or AMSTAT lists,
  19. Hi all, I'm deciding between Columbia's Masters of Science in Business Analytics and University of Michigan's Masters of Science in Data Science program. Since they are in different industries, I'm very conflicted. I got waitlisted from NYU and UW Data Science, got accepted to Cornell's MPS in Applied Statistics (Data Science), ORIE at Cornell Tech, and Georgetown Analytics. Still waiting from Brown, PENN, LSE Data Science. Economics major and Statistics minor at a top 3 liberal arts college, with some cs background. I think my end goal is working as a data scientist at a consulting/fina
  20. Hi, I'm an ivy grad who majored in Economics & Statistics, 3.7 cumulative GPA, 167 Quant/165 Verbal on GRE. I've been doing strategy for a big tech company the past 2 years and been functioning as the go-to analytics/data science person on the team. Now I want to make a full-on transition to data science (goal is to become a ds at a startup!) and am realizing that I need more training in math and statistics to thoroughly understand the stuff I'm doing. Data Science Masters at Stanford, Harvard, and Columbia are my top choices. I'm also considering Statistics masters as well, since I w
  21. Hi everyone I've worked as an analyst for 3 years and am fascinated by the application of statistics and related sophisticated algorithms by tech firms to drive business value. I want to deepen my knowledge base of the same via higher education. While researching programs, it appears to me that Analytics and Data science programs are sort of general purpose and don't go quite deep into the subject matter. Due to this I've been considering Statistics / Operations Research / Management Sci MS programs. Thoughts?
  22. Hi! I'm a recent graduate planning on applying to PhD programs in statistics or data science for Fall 2020. My research interest lies in the field of Natural Language Processing.
