I can't access the 2018 USnews rankings anymore, but the rankings for Stats and Biostats used to be merged. (If anyone still has access to 2018, please share.) I can't help but wonder if anyone thinks that the merged rankings could have been more useful. For example, Cornell is #13 in Stats, while Duke is #13 in Biostats. But if I recall correctly, Duke was around #35 in the combined 2018 rankings, well below Cornell Stats. Does this imply that the Cornell Stat programs be better career wise? Or do you think that the Stat/Biostat career paths are different enough that the separated lists are better?
Hi everyone, I am lucky to be accepted by JHU AMS(Applied math and statistics) phd and Upitt stat phd program , but am having a hard time deciding which one to choose. My B.S major is mathematics and so I think theoretical stat may be more suitable to me. I contact one professor at Upitt who is really good at stat theory and I think he is a good match for me.So I was planning to go to Upitt until I found the placement is kind of disappointing: many for medicine industry( I am not very interested in).On the other hand, professors at JHU focus mainly on computing stat which I am not sure I can manage, but the placement is attractive: almost everyone is to be a data scientist in IT or finance field. Anyone has any thoughts on these two programs? (especially for AMS@JHU because I can't find its rank at US.News.) Thanks a lot!
I have been accepted to PhD programs for the upcoming Fall at the University of Florida (UF) and the Iowa State University (ISU). -> UF has a small program with younger faculty--most of them are recent graduates from ivy schools--while ISU has one of the largest Statistics department in the US. ->UF is ranked #40 this year and ISU is tied at #20 -> Both places have research that interests me -> UF has a better reputation as a research university in general Please help me decide on picking the school for myself. What factors should I consider before making a decision? Are there any current graduate students or alum from these schools who can give some pros and cons on the schools?
