  1. Hi all I just got back my GRE score and it turns out to be lower than I expected ( V146/ Q167/ AW3.0). I submitted my application for MS stat/biostat for Rutgers but I am afraid that I can get rejected because of my low score. I graduated from large public university(top 30 public univ from us news) with stat/econ major. My GPA is 3.6 / 4.0 no related work experience but TA for a math course one strong recom letter (from prof that I TA for) Do I still have some chances of getting admitted for Rutgers ms stat/biostat? please help thank you
  2. Seeking help in deciding between these two programs. I'm coming straight out of undergrad (domestic student) as a stats major with no relevant internship experience (covid) and seeking to break into data science. Both of these programs seem to value their master's students much more than other schools (I've already decided against Columbia), while Duke might have a slight edge here due to the smaller class size. I'm fairly indifferent between the two locations, but I feel like Chicago would have more attractive job/internship opportunities locally, and a similar or better reputation nationwid
  3. So I just received a generic rejection mail from Simon Fraser University Canada. Does this mean that there is a high chance of me being rejected from the universities ranked above it? Schools am planning to apply to (Fall Term 2021): University of British Columbia McGill University Simon Fraser University (Rejected) University of Manitoba University of Guelph McMaster University University of Waterloo Programs: M.Sc. in Statistics PROFILE!

  5. Hi all! I'm a nontraditional applicant coming from a biology and engineering background and wondering if I could get some advice on what schools I should apply to given my background? I'm applying to MS in Data Science and Statistics programs for Fall 2021. My goal is to transition to an industry position in Data Science (or related). I've been pretty strong with the math classes I've taken so far, but I worry that a lack of more stats and proof-based courses puts me at a disadvantage. Ethnicity/Demographic: Male Caucasian (European Background) Undergrad 1: ~95-100 ranked US Universi

  8. Hello all. It's my first time posting here and I apologize if it's not the right forum for such a post. Would anyone here happen to know of the pros & cons of USC's M.S. in Statistics? I mean no offense, but if I may be blunt, some friends have shared that some USC's master programmes are "cash cows". I couldn't find much candid commentary on USC's M.S. in Statistics online and am hoping that stats grad students may be able to weigh in. Subjective opinions are okay Thanks for reading. USC = University of Southern California (in case the acronym USC is overloaded)
  9. Hello and thank you for your time reading this! So I have narrowed my acceptance down to two schools: Madison and Minnesota. I am from Wisconsin originally so I will considered in-state at both schools. I completed my undergrad at Wisconsin and I am currently unsure about continuing on to a PhD later. I am leaning towards getting a job in industry, probably in the health care sector. Additionally, I currently have no loans but by graduation, will only have a few thousand left in the bank. Wisconsin would be my choice as it is fully funded and a better program. But befor
  10. Hey! I'm currently a 4th year undergrad majoring in statistics at UC Berkeley. Right now, my plan is to apply for a master's in statistics or data science within the next 2-4 years, as I'm planning on doing data science work for at least a year before applying. My question, though, has to do with my grades this semester--in particular, due to the coronavirus, my school has given us the option to either take our classes pass/fail or we can request a letter grade. They are pushing hard for us to do pass/fail, but I'm not sure this is the best option for someone like me who hopes to go to grad sc

  12. I received a mail from a faculty member requesting for a Skype interview. Can someone help me out with what kind of questions I am to expect from them? What are the things I need to look up at beforehand? This is the first interview I have received so I would much appreciate if ya'll could drop some tips. Thank you!!!
  13. Recently I got admission from University of Chicago and University of Washington (Seattle), both are statistics master programs. I hope to work in IT companies in my future career, such as FLAG. As far as I know, the stats program in Uchicago tends to be very theroretical, and it asks students to take 9 courses and a thesis in order to graduate, which is a pretty good program for those who want to pursue a Phd program after graduation. And if I want to be a data scientist, a Phd degree is much better than a master degree when seeking for a job. Also,UChicago is well-known for many other
  14. Hi everyone: I recently got accepted to WUSTL AM Statistics program, and I'm struggling to find any discussion about the program. All that I've seen during my searches on this forum and google are some rate my chances threads. I assume it's because of the small size of the class plus the fact that statistics is still part of the Department of Mathematics in WUSTL. Just wondering if anyone can add some information on the lack of information issue. Here's a little bit of my background: graduated with BS in math/econ and statistics, worked in industry for two years as a data analyst (ma
  15. Hey Guys! I know we have a lot of experienced members here who see these kind of posts very often. Can someone please have a look on my following scenario and recommend some programs/schools that seem reasonable for my profile? Please help me out here and feel free to be brutally honest!! Program of Interest: MS Statistics (smth more inclined towards applications especially in data analytics) Undergrad Institution: #218 National University US News & World Report (a US public school) Major: BS Mathematics, Minor: Economics CGPA: 4.00/4.00 (Last 60 hours) Type o
  16. I recently graduated with a BS in a natural science and a minor in stats. I believe I have most of the prereqs needed for Statistics MS programs: I've taken Calc I and II, Linear Algebra, and 4 stats classes. Calc 3 seems like the only major prereq I need to take, though I have seen programs suggest taking courses in calc-based probability and real analysis. I took Calc I about 4 years ago and got a C. I took Calc II three years ago and got a B+. I've barely touched calc since. The options I've considered are: 1) Review Calculus principles for a couple weeks before the semester star
  17. Hi, I'm an ivy grad who majored in Economics & Statistics, 3.7 cumulative GPA, 167 Quant/165 Verbal on GRE. I've been doing strategy for a big tech company the past 2 years and been functioning as the go-to analytics/data science person on the team. Now I want to make a full-on transition to data science (goal is to become a ds at a startup!) and am realizing that I need more training in math and statistics to thoroughly understand the stuff I'm doing. Data Science Masters at Stanford, Harvard, and Columbia are my top choices. I'm also considering Statistics masters as well, since I w
  18. Hi everyone, This May I graduated with a sociology degree. My goal is to become a social science researcher. Because the field of social science research is going toward a quantitative direction, I plan to apply to applied statistics masters program this fall. After masters, I plan to work in the Industry for a few years, and then apply for a social science PhD. (economics, public policy, political science, sociology..).

  19. Based on some searching on here, I tried laying down some estimates for what GRE minimum scores are needed for the various schools that offer a Stats MS program. I was wondering if people could critique this list? Thanks! 159 Q minimum target score for unranked/very low ranked schools 161 Q minimum target score for the lower ranked USNWR schools 164 Q should be sufficient for most ranked schools 165 Q is a minimum target score for almost all of the ranked schools
  20. Hi everyone!! Recently I have been admitted to the Stat MS program at Stanford & U Chicago and am struggling. I will try to advance to PhD after MS, but I don't know which school will offer me a better chance? I heard that Chicago has a good PhD prep and many research opportunities. I am not sure how Stanford is. But Stanford Stat ranks higher than U Chicago... Chicago Pros: - Tuition reduction (25%) - Good preparation for PhD - More research opportunity Cons: - Not as well-known as Stanford - Location is not as good.
