  1. There seem to be a lot of threads asking the same thing popping up lately and I figured it might make sense to make an overall guide thread and then those who feel their answers still haven’t been adequately answered can post below for an idea of what their chances are. Here is a brief rundown of factors affecting your likelihood of getting into top-tier and well respected programs. If you fall below par in any one of these factors you can bump it up by being stellar in one of the others. I'll add to this if others point out other things I've left out. School requirements: Your first s
  2. Hi all, I'm a senior undergrad in the US graduating in the spring. I'm applying to PhD programs in statistics for fall 2020. I posted my profile recently and got great feedback, and I was wondering about a few more things: 1. I changed the list of schools I'm applying to, do they seem reasonable? I wanted to apply to more reach schools to give myself a better chance of getting into one, while also applying to enough lower ranked schools to not feel worried about getting into zero schools. 2. If I'm okay with doing

  9. Hi all, I'm a senior undergrad in the US graduating in the spring. I'm applying to PhD programs in statistics/biostatistics for fall 2020. I'm wondering about several things: 1. Are programs in biostats vs statistics significantly different? I think I'm interested in a more theoretical/mathematical training so if biostatistics programs put a lot less emphasis on that then I'm not sure I'd want to attend those programs. 2. Are the schools I'm applying for reasonable? Suggestions on where else to apply would also be great. 3. Will not takin

  11. Hello, everyone! I'm a rising senior thay has just recently made the decision to pursue a MS in biostatistics rather than the original path I've been working at for the past couple years (PhD in Clinical Psychology). Clearly, this is a major shift in my plans so I have been attempting to familiarize myself with the field and what credentials I'll need in order to be admitted into such a program. The underlying question of this post: do I even have a chance of admission for Fall 2019 or I should apply for the following year? Undergraduate Institution: Large Public Universit

  16. I went through the hugely popular 'Am I competitive'? Thread in Government Affairs and was wondering if it made sense to create an overall thread in this forum as well. I only noticed three very specific threads on here (linking the one I found to be slightly more general). Hopefully, I get answers and others who are asking themselves the same/similar questions get on here and find answers as well!

  17. I connected my Facebook to The GradCafe so that I could post things because I'm a little lazy with accounts and stuff. Why does everybody here use nicknames instead of their full names? Does anybody connect their Facebook to this site?
  18. 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. ECE from an unknown institution internationally, but known regionally and undoubtedly one of the best nati
  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

  22. Hi, I know I have a very weak academic profile, but I was wondering if I'd have any chance to get into a Stat PhD program, say top 30-40 ish. I'm currently majoring in Mathematics and Statistics at UChicago. To give you a little explanation about my low GPA, I was not thinking about academia and was mainly looking for a job in Finance until 2nd quarter of my junior year. The job I was seeking for doesn't really care about what kind of courses I take, so I took a lot of junk classes in order to compensate for my low math grades. UChicago by itself is a pretty harsh grader (GPA 3.25/4.

I know my profile is very very VERY weak, I was not aware that I wanted to apply for PhD programs until a few months ago, and I wasn't trying my hardest Freshman, Sophomore year.
