1. ## Profile Eval - PhD Stat

Hi! I'm a rising senior this upcoming semester and planning to apply for Stats PhD programs (possibly Biostats as well). I'm mostly interested in doing research in bayesian statistics / machine learning and survival analysis, but that could change. I'd appreciate any suggestions on reachable schools with my application. I prefer programs in East Coast, especially New England and West Coast. Thanks for your input! Undergrad Institution: top 30 LACs Major(s): Statistics Minor(s): Computer Science GPA: Current 3.83 (might be able to reach 3.86 by the time applying) Type of Student: International female (attending US college) GRE General Test: Q:170 V: 160 W: 5.0 Applying to: Statistics/Biostatistics PhD Research Experience: have done 1-year research in statistical methodology in multivariate analysis; had to wrap up because of covid. Am doing summer research internship (at a well-known cancer hospital) in survival analysis and longitudinal analysis which I plan to turn it into a senior thesis. Letters of Recommendation: One from my current mentor - a scientist at the research center, one from the former prof that I worked with for my previous research; one from my CS prof. I'm thinking of asking another one from the prof I requested to be my thesis supervisor. Math: Multivariable Calc (A), Linear Algebra (A), Discrete - proof based (A), Probability (A), Mathematical Statistics (A) Statistics: Applied Regression/Statistical learning (A), Methods in Data Science (B+), Nonparametric Stat (A), Experimental Design (B+), Exploration of Time Series (1 cred - A) CS: OOP in Java (B), Data Structures (B), Algorithms (A) Planning on taking: Real Analysis, Optimization, Theoretical Math Stat (grad-level) and Machine Learning this fall. Planning on Applying to: I really have no idea what schools are reachable. I originally planned to become an investment banker and switching to research was a big career change to me. Rankings do not matter to me as much as locations and the working environment. I don't plan to take GRE Subject Test. Can you guys give me some recommendations on schools that I might be able to reach given my application and preference. Thanks for your help!

3. ## Fall 2021 Profile Evaluation - Overreaching?

Undergrad Institution: Top 20 Public US School Major(s): Statistics Minor(s): Math GPA: 3.61 Type of Student: Hispanic Domestic Male, in-state Georgia GRE General Test: Q: 160 V: 159 W: Unknown (expecting a 4.5) Applying to: Statistics Masters Research Experience: 1-year research study in time series and forecasting Work Experience: Math/Stats Tutor, Technical Consultant for company providing business intelligence solutions for gas and electric utility companies LOR: One from research advisor, one from department head, one from either advanced math professor or from CEO of current employment Math: Calc I (B), Calc II/III (A-), Linear Algebra (B), Advanced Mathematics (B-), Advanced Calc (C+) concerned with poor performance in math courses Statistics: Mathematical Statistics (A), SAS Data and Stat Analysis (A-), Applied Stats (A), Biostats (B+), Time Series and Forecasting (A), Applied Regression Methods (A-), Statistics in Practice (A) Applying Where: Georgia Tech: MSc Statistics Out of State: Iowa State: MSc Statistics Purdue: MSc Applied Statistics Texas A&M: MSc Statistics Berkeley: MA Statistics Almost exclusively looking at Georgia Tech, and I'm wondering about the likelihood of getting accepted, and whether I should retake the GRE for a higher Quant score to appear more competitive.
4. ## Profile Evaluation - MS Statistics or Computer Science

Hi Everyone! I was wondering if I could get some advice on what tiers of schools I should apply for? I am going to apply for an MS in stats OR CS (Fall 2021). Demographics: Eastern European Undergrad: McGill Major: Joint Honours Mathematics and Economics GPA: 3.72 overall, Math major GPA: 3.73, Econ major GPA: 3.65 Coursework: MATH: Calc 3, Advanced (A,A), Honours Algebra 1, 2, 3, 4 (A,A-,A,B-), Honours Analysis 1,2 (A,A-), Honours ODEs (A), Honours Probability (A-), Honours Nonlinear Dynamics (A), Honours PDEs (B), Honours Statistics (A-). ECON: Honours Econometrics I (A-), Honours Econometrics II (A-) and other Macro/Micro classes CS: Only took one Foundation of Programming class but currently I work in data science. Professional Experience: Working at a top tier consulting firm as an analyst/junior data scientist, mainly doing NLP and participating in building/deploying web apps on Azure/AWS. Doing a lot data cleaning and engineering. This mainly the reason I started considering CS or Applied Computing masters. Letters: I can get a very strong letter from a Senior Data Scientist colleague or form a DS Partner in the firm. Unfortunately, I did not do undergrad research but still can get good recommendation letters from my professors. GRE: Current GRE results V:155 Q:163. Planning to retake it. I am wondering what tiers of schools would be best to apply for? Which schools should I aim for and which should I keep as a plan B? I am mainly look for schools in the US and UK. Thank you very much for your help!

6. ## Keeping my full-time job during my MS Stats program

Is it worthwhile to quit my job to focus fully on my master's degree? My master's is currently unfunded, but I have a decent amount in savings and plan to hopefully work a part-time job to offset any loans I may have to take out. My undergrad was in Psychology, and I made the jump to Statistics and CS and the transition has been difficult, but I love it. My current job is unrelated to my field, but it is flexible and is funding my education, which is a huge incentive to stay. However, balancing both graduate school and full-time work is taking a toll on my mental and physical health. I have started having back problems and neck problems from sitting all day at work and sitting all night working on homework. The lack of free-time has also started triggering panic attacks. I've been seeking treatment for these conditions, but it all boils down to stress triggering these issues. I know if I really buckle down, I can get through the semester, but at what cost? Once I graduate, the types of jobs I can apply for pay a lot more than my current job. I'm feeling stuck because the situation I'm in is one that most would envy, but it's seriously effecting my health. Should I quit and focus on graduate school full-time at the risk of incurring debt, or should I stay at the risk of degrading health? Any advice, personal experiences, etc. would be extremely helpful.

8. ## MS Statistics Math Prerequisites Question

I'm thinking about returning to grad school after an 11 year absence from studying and advanced mathematics. Statistics is the field I am most interested in, and I have the right undergraduate prerequisites (Calc I-III, Linear Algebra, Prob & Stat). However, I'm worried about being rejected because of how long ago my coursework was. I've been in education since that time and haven't really used or reviewed any upper-level mathematics. Ideally, I'd like to get into a mid-tier program. Application deadlines for Fall 2017 are coming up and I'm trying to decide whether or not it makes sense to apply this year and how programs would view a mid-life career-change candidate with my background. My undergrad GPA (in EE) was 3.7 and my GRE scores are good (top 5% verbal and math), but I didn't take the GRE mathematics subject test this year. The programs I'm looking at do not require the subject test. Would I have any chance of being accepted if I applied this year, or should I spend a year reviewing math, take the GRE math test (to demonstrate to programs that I still can remember how to do the upper level stuff) and wait to apply until next year? If I were accepted for 2017, I'd spend the summer reviewing mathematics anyway. Are first year courses in MS stat heavily reliant on advanced calculus, or do programs just want to see that you have ability in math? It seems like some people have gone on to study statistics even after doing some undergraduate degrees in completely unrelated areas. Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.

10. ## Georgia Tech institute decision letter

I received an acceptance letter from GA tech ISYE department, but it says that acceptance is not final until I receive one more letter from the graduate admissions office.Is there a chance of being declined admission by the institute,even after being accepted by the department ,or is it just a step to check the authenticity of the application material.I have a deadline to accept another offer by 23rd and GA Tech is on spring break till 25th.Can I be sure I will receive the other letter?Or am I risking it by letting the other offer go?
