Has anybody got an admit to the MS in Computer Science program at Columbia University for the Fall session despite submitting the application after the 2nd priority deadline(during the rolling period)? If yes, can you please mention some details about your profile? Also when did you apply and when did you receive the admit? I am planning to apply after 2nd priority deadline (somewhere around 1st week of March) but am really worried that my application might not be reviewed at all. Can someone please help?
TL;DR - What are my chances of getting into a top statistics graduate program (either masters or doctorate) with excellent marks but little research experience? I am a student at a Canadian university ranked 151-200 in mathematics and statistics (on QS at least). My major is statistics. My GPA is a 4.30 out of a possible 4.33, and I have A+ grades in every math and stats course I have ever taken, obviously these include: calc I-III, intro algebra (theoretical version), ODEs, intro complex analysis, real analysis I and II, regression, time series, probability theory, multivariate stats. If I maintain my current GPA I am likely going to graduate inside the top three people in my graduating class (top GPA in grads this summer was 4.29). I graduate next year, but only have one semester of research experience and no publications. I am curious, for the sake of my ambitions and time + application money's sake, how likely am I to get into a top school such as Stanford/Harvard/Princeton, etc. for statistics or mathematics? I imagine mathematics (or CS) requires more of a research background than the stats does (this is coming from the advisor at my university and my research supervisor for the one semester I have). I appreciate any advice you guys can give. Thanks!
