  1. I'm applying to PhD program in stat/biostat this fall. I have two rec let from professors I did research with. I'm deciding for the 3nd one from the following possibilities. I'd appreciate if someone can offer advice. 1. I'm doing thesis with a professor whom I plan to ask the 3rd letter from. My concern is that the thesis is a continuation from my summer research with one of the two profs I will get the letters from. So I don't know if it lacks diversity. 2. A rec let from Real Analysis prof. I'm doing pretty well in class. But I don't plan to apply to programs with Measure Theory
  2. Hi all, I will be second-year master student this upcoming semester and am really willing to pursue my Phd degree in statistics field. (For stat and biostat, I prefer to biostat). But I really do not know if these school I've already chosen is fit me well. I will really appreciate that if you could give me some advice! Thanks for your input!

  3. Hi! I wonder which Statistics PhD program is better, UIUC Statistics or UT-Austin Statistics and Data Science. UIUC: Pros: 1. Ranking; 2. CS is better; 3. Statistics Department is big and has many research areas. Cons: 1. Location; 2. Weather. UT-Austin: Pros: 1. Location; 2. Many good companies there; 3. Some big names in Bayesian. Cons: 1. Ranking; 2. Too new; 3. Too Bayesian. Thank you so much for your answers and help.

  5. Academically which shall I choose? I heard Buffalo ranks high in Biostat. I have to learn about the professors for now, I think. As of funding, Buffalo offers 20000/year TA and tuition discount(only at the resident rate, sadly), no insurance mentioned VT full funded with waived tuition and 88% insurance. Not know the responsibility for the stipend yet. Thanks!
  6. Hi, I'm going to apply to Statistics master's and PhD program this year, hopefully focusing on machine learning / deep learning. I have several concerns, including 1. changing my field from Economics to Statistics 2. did not take many courses from Statistics department 3. did not major/minor in Mathematics, and for these reasons, I am applying to master's as well, so that I can have a better chance to get into PhD program afterwards. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Undergrad Institution: One of the top 3 in South Korea Major(s): Economics GPA: 3.

  8. I would appreciate any thoughts. The point is, 1) Mac OS vs Windows, which system is better for a student in stat? 2) 8 Gen i5(quad-core) with 8GB Ram is enough to run, say R or python? (In general stat field)

  11. I see that some schools have sent out interview requests for programs i applied to. If i didnt get a request yet, does that mean out?
  12. I've been looking at masters programs in statistics around the mid-Atlantic US region (even as far as Virginia to New Haven). I am looking for programs which will give the most help for getting into a PhD program, such as completing a thesis, having a good ratio of faculty to student in order for individual research and mentoring. Which MA/MS programs in that region are recommended for such a trajectory? I was looking at Columbia's MA program but it doesn't seem to be conducive to my goals - not saying Columbia is bad, but there may be more suitable programs in the region for those like
  13. Hi, This is my first post on the Grad Cafe. I'm encouraged by all of you guys because now I know that I'm not alone in this hectic time of grad applications. I am writing SOPs for MS/MA in statistics and MS data science. I eventually do want to pursue a PhD though I'm not sure which aspect of the mathematical sciences I want to be specialize in. My question is essentially: 1) What roles (software, data engineer, analyst etc)would MS data science graduates have in the industry? (whether government or commercial) 2) Would I easily have enough prior knowledge to pass qua

  15. I am a current undergraduate student majoring in Statistics. I have been interested in careers ranging from sports statistician, to video game data scientist, to biostatistician. I am not looking for a career that is the most paying per se (I would like a salary of somewhere between 60k-80k a year), rather a career that is most fulfilling. I do not seek a programming-focused role, however I do not mind learning programming and utilizing it as a useful tool. I would like to be able to share my knowledge of statistics to help others who may not be knowledgeable of statistics and help them s
  16. I've narrowed down my final two choices for a PhD beginning Fall '17 to Johns Hopkins University's Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics (School of Engineering) and Brown University's Department of Biostatistics (School of Public Health). I've been accepted at both. I'm interested in applied statistics (I have work experience in data science and an M.S. already), so biostatistics sounds like a natural fit. I'm curious about the reputation of the Brown program. It seems small but mighty! My concern is that by going to Brown, I'm throwing away the opportunity to rub shoulders wit
  17. Hi Everyone, After long time decision, I finally decide to go to UCB stat rather than Duke stat. However, this last Friday, I got the AD from NYU DS, which is also my dream program. I am a statistics major and only took 3 cs courses in data structure, python programming and VB. I am not really sure weather my cs background is enough for ds program. I am now an actuarial analyst outside US, and I hope I can work toward modeling in US(especially prefer to work in actuarial firm) after graduate from graduate school. It sounds that NYU locates in better location for
  18. I'm currently deciding between Penn State MAS program and the Cornell MPS program. Both will be a one year program because I did my undergrad at PSU. As a current Penn State undergraduate I'm leaning towards the staying here because I'm familiar with the area, the professors, have a job, research hook ups, ect However, I know Cornell has very good name recognition. My main goal is to go straight into industry. I looked over the post graduate survey for Cornell and was unimpressed with the average salary (70k) seeing as a few months ago I turned down a 63k a year job hoping to get acce
  19. Hi there, I'm just trying to get an idea of what kind of graduate schools I have a chance at. I'd really appreciate any feed back. Undergraduate Institution: Penn State Main / Statistics Major, Math major, econ minor GPA: 3.33/4.0 really bad gpa freshman year but I brought it up. kind of went down last semester a little lol.

  20. Hi, I'm interested in entering a statistics master program in the US. Since I graduated from a not so prestigious foreign university, I'm not considering aiming at top programs in the US. I think that I have better chances applying to middle-rank programs. Plus, I have a limited budget for application fees and I don't want to squander it on unrealistic expectations. My question is: where can I find MSc stat programs ranked by demand? BTW, my long term project is to work for the financial sector. Do you think that I should apply to a PhD program? If so, can you provide
  21. Hi all, Im going to senior next sem and planning to apply for a position in stat graduate program. To be honest I am in complete awe and confusion about school selection since im not sure where would take a pretty empty cv and an ok academic record like mine. I literally have no peer, friend, or senior to ask/discuss about this. It would be very kind of you if you could help me figure this out, and maybe, recommend me some schools?. Here's my profile Undergrad Institution: Asian, top 50 QS ranking Majors: Math (mostly applied, stat, and fin-math track, my school doesn't have a
  22. Hello! Will passing the Actuarial Exam P help your chances of getting accepted into Master's Statistics and Biostatistics programs?
  23. Lets say I get a 3.2-3.3 undergraduate GPA. I then go to a mid-level master's program(30th-60th) and get a 3.6-3.8. With a high GRE score (Q: 760+), can you get into a top 20 PhD program? Essentially, can a good GRE and masters work almost erase your undergraduate work? I am currently a Stats/Econ major, but I am looking at many different options and so I was just looking for generalities. Thanks!
  24. Hi, I am currently a Statistics and Economics major in my Junior year at an accredited Big Ten university. I am hoping to go into Biostatistics after I graduate, but am having a lot of trouble finding admission statistics. Though obviously none of this is set in stone, this is an approximation of what my GPA's would look like. My Expected GPA's consist of: GPA: 3.298 Statistics GPA: 3.357 Math/Stat GPA: 3.293 Degree GPA: 3.443 College of Natural Science GPA (including Degree GPA): 3.472 Economics GPA: 3.600 GPA of classes excluding Stat, Math, and Econ: 3.115 My Relevent Co
