  1. Hi all, I am considering applying to statistics, IEOR, and biostat PhD programs. My interests are more in the methodological side of statistics, so OR and biostat departments may be more appealing to me (leaning towards biostat), but I'm not opposed to more theoretical stats. That said, I wanted to have more insight on what should be my reach, target, and safeties for PhD applications. I would also like to point out some problems in my transcript, and see what you guys may think about it. A bit about my profile: Undergrad: Ivy League (not HYP) Major: BA in Economics (Major GPA ~
  2. Hello, as I finished my junior year at my new undergrad university (came from average community college), I would like to start preparing and assessing what "level" I should most look into. Everyone has their dream school, and mine is UC Berkeley. Granted, my hopes of being admitted there are slim at best. Nonetheless, I would be remiss if I didn't try and apply. That said, I have some other programs I might have some shot at, even if it's a long shot. I would appreciate an honest look at where I stand, and then maybe some examples of institutions I should consider "reach", "within my reach" a

  5. Hello all! I'm interested in applying for an MS in Biostatistics (Fall 2021) but am having trouble finding admissions data so I was wondering what you all thought about my application profile and how much of a chance I stood at the schools I'm interested in.

  9. Hi All, I know this is really last minute but I have been going back and forth on my decision and couldn't really decide. Basically I applied for the applied statistics in education and got accepted by Teachers College (Ed.M. in Measurement and Evaluation), Vanderbilt (M.Ed. in Quantitative Methods), and NYU (MS in Applied Statistics in Social Science Research, A3SR). The program at Columbia seems weird because for the past six years or so there have been only two years when the program got only two students. The other years there were no students who chose this program (including
  10. Hi everyone, I’m having a hard time getting letter of references. I’d like to know if it’s possible I can use a field evaluation (undergrad internship evaluation) substituted for a letter of recommendation? Would the graduate admissions still consider this as a letter of references? Thanks.

  12. Hello everyone, I have been having trouble lately matching my profile with potential MS ECE programs and would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me with shortlisting potential MS programs to apply to. I aim to apply mostly to universities in Canada and Europe, basically anywhere but the US (as I won't be able to take the GRE in time). I am also mainly looking for research/thesis based degrees, and preferably RA/TA funded degrees. My profile: Undergrad: B.Sc.

  18. Hi all, I am looking to do Ph.D. in Two-phase flows (Mechanical Engg.).I would really appreciate any feedback regarding my profile and how I can improve my choices. Major concerns: Based on my interactions with the professors and some of my seniors, I think my profile is decent for Ph.D. application (Please correct me if wrong, all suggestions are welcome) However, I am concerned about my CGPA, GRE (Verbal and AWA marks) and especially TOEFL (especially speaking) I have gone through the universities mentioned in my list (feel free to suggest changes in it) but I have
  19. Hi, everybody. To be honest, I come from a rural community and don´t have the money to apply to several graduate programs. That is why I want help so I can narrow my choices and avoid spending money on application fees for universities I don´t even have a decent chance to get accepted at (I don´t know how my profile compares to average international students). Here is my profile: Major: Two at UNAM in México. One in Physics and other in Mathematics GPA: both 9.5/10 Research experience: Several posters, seminar talks and worked as associated student at various institutes TOE
  20. [Disclaimer: This is somewhat of a repost but I have GRE scores now and a much better idea of the schools to which I would like to apply. I will greatly shorten this post, but my original one can found on my profile (it's the only other post I've made)] My Questions: I'm not sure how realistic these choices are for me, but I'm very interested in the biostatistics programs of Harvard, JHU, UNC - Chapel Hill, and UPenn. For statistics programs, Cornell and Rutgers looked interesting to me. I'm comfortable applying to mostly higher end/reach schools as I will be applying to UVA. I am almost

  23. Hi fellow aspirants, I tried to find a thread or directory pertaining to universities offering evaluation studies program and couldn't find one. I am in early stage of application this year yet I wonder which are better universities in this area. I have found few and it seemed most of the universities focus either on education or Psych evaluation. What I am more interested in is, generic evaluation studies program which is focused more towards training in quantitative and qualitative research methods and universal applicability of such methods (such as in program evaluation, social impact
