Some statistics: Undergrad: A current senior in top 50 public uni, double major on Biochemistry and International Relations Overall GPA: 3.1 Biochem GPA: 2.49 International Relations: 3.74 with departmental honor Research experience : 3, all related to international relations/political science Relevant Prerequisite: Calculus 1-3(3.0-3.2), STATS: Element of the statistical methods( the title of the class), currently learning python on Coursera. Plan to take linear algebra and matrix in my last year. Recently, I decided to pursue a master's degree in Data Science/Applied statistics/ Information systems. I am currently taking a stat class, which I found really interesting, which prompted me to switch my field of study. That being said, I did some researches and am now greatly discouraged and not sure if I should do this, especially after some programs said they will review the coursework in science to evaluate the applicant's potential (especially if the applicant do not have a degree in a similar field). I am now really worried about my Biochem grade being a drag. Is there any way to offset the negative impact of that? Provided that I do not have much space for taking more than 4 related mathematical/programming classes in my last year being a double major. I am also thinking of getting a master first in computational social science as a stepping stone and then dig more into the statistical program for the second master, which however will be time-consuming and a financial burden. Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you!
Is is really that much important the reputation of the university? I have been accepted to the MALS Dartmouth, Queen's MA in Political Legal Philosophy, St. Andrews MLitt in Legal and Constitutional Studies and Sherbrooke University for the Master of Laws (LLM). So far, the advices I have received are really to go with the prestigious school - Dartmouth, Queen's St. Andrews and to not keep Sherbrooke University. However, I do believe there is a value in their degree -- LLM. It is normally quite impossible to enter in that degree without a prior law degree so I have to say that despite their lower reputation, I felt it was quite attractive to have this chance to study law at the graduate level. More particularly, if I had the chance to pursue a doctorate in law, I believe this program would be my only chance to pursue legal research or teach law later on.
