  4. I am about to be a junior this Fall and currently have a 2.6 GPA right now. I also don't go to a very popular college and it's located in the city. I have low grades and I am thinking about either getting into a masters program for applied statistics or maybe applied math. However, I might have no chance because I got a few C grades in my early math classes and I had to withdraw from Calculus 1 twice. I am also interested in economics and I have a B and B- in the first two economics classes so far. I understand that I screwed up bad but I am thinking about changing my life around. I have a tot

  7. Hi everyone! I posted in Waiting it Out, but thought I would give it a shot here as well I am anxiously awaiting any kind of response from both McMaster and University of Western Ontario regarding admissions to the master of sciences in statistics program. I applied in January, and it is now June and have not heard back from either school. Has anyone heard back? Either an acceptance, wait list or rejection? I am very frustrated at this point and would love to hear other applicants thoughts/journeys for a statistics masters! If anyone was admitted to either program, would you min

  10. Hi, I graduated with a bachelor of technology degree in Electronics from VIT Vellore, India in 2016 and have been working in statistical modelling/predictive analytics related profiles since then. I took various mathematics electives in college and enjoyed learning about different branches, and their applications in industry. I enjoy working on lot of versatile projects but over time, I realized that I am not learning anything in depth. Online courses related to statistics touch topics in a superficial way (no offence) and I would want to study some topics in depth, and pursue
  11. Hello all, April 15 is the deadline to decide where I'll be going for my Master's in Stats! I'm posting here to get a better idea of where I should go. Here are my options: UChicago, Duke, UNC-Chapel Hill, UW-Madison, and ETH Zurich. Worth noting is that UW-Madison is free, although money isn't really a concern for me. As of now, I'd say I'm definitely leaning UChicago based on its prestige and the strength of its master's program. While I'm not that interested at the moment in pursuing a PhD following my Master's, I suppose leaving that door open can't hurt and that there's a lot of good
  12. Thanks for reading this. I will be attending a Top 3 biostat master program next fall, and I want to seek for advice on how to become a competitive applicant for phd program in stat/biostat 2 years later, especially as an international student. FYI, I graduated from a top flagship state university with a major in statistics&computer science. I also have a minor in math but most math course I took are not proof-based and I only took one elementary analysis class (A+ grade). I also have done several research projects but do not have any publications. Specifically, I want to know gi
  13. I have been admitted to the statistics departments at both Harvard and Berkeley. I applied to 24 schools, so I've also been accepted to virtually all of the top 20 stats programs, excluding Stanford. My academic interests are pretty broad, but I'd like my research to be more theoretical and in the realm of probability or machine learning/deep learning, if possible. I'm also not sure if I will try to go into academia or into a research team at Google, Microsoft, Facebook, etc. I am mainly considering these two because Berkeley is so good at ML, but Harvar
  14. I am currently a senior DS at a FAANG company but my passion lies in academia. I have 2 publications, 3.5 GPA from large top 20 public school in Statistics, but my GRE general and subject test dates were cancelled last year due to COVID (I took them over 5 years ago and got 99% in GRE Quant, 85% in GRE Verbal, and 73% on math subject test). I applied to 12 top 30 ranked programs. Perhaps my concerns are premature but so far, I have only been admitted to one lower ranked program. The Berkeley faculty I interviewed with gave me the feedback that my coursework could be stronger (ie. Real An

  16. Hello everyone! My name is Vic (they/them) and I’m attempting to find a statistics and methods workshop to keep myself busy. I understand YouTube has plenty of informative videos but I find that I learn better when I’m interacting with the lecturer and other students in the class. If you have any suggestions please let me know!
  17. Dear all, I am an international applicant (from India) to the PhD program in Statistics/Biostatistics for Fall 2021 session. A little background about me: I completed my undergraduate in 2015, majoring in statistics with minor in mathematics and economics and my masters in statistics in 2017, both with US equivalent GPA of 4.0. Both my undergrad and masters universities are quite reputed (not ISI) and I believe I have decent mathematical preparation. After that, till now I have been working as a biostatistician at a pharmaceutical company. Along with my job, I have been involve
  18. I really need some solid advice on my SOP. I don't really have anyone to review the essay, so it would be a big help. TIA One summer break, as I was sitting in my room watching my country’s election coverage, I realized that the coverage lacked any substantive information. As an avid follower of international politics, I expected the networks to cover information on policy proposals, the future impact of those policies, and most importantly, polling data. However, the information presented was very trivial. This realization inspired me to scour through swathes of data from a wide r
  19. 1. GRE: I got 154V, 165Q, and probably 3.5W 2. I finished enough upper division math classes to graduate and my overall GPA is 3.92.

  22. Hi, I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe! I plan to apply to graduate statistics programs soon. I'm primarily interested in masters programs, as I don’t feel competitive/competent enough for a PhD. I would love if someone could help me understand where I stand and if my feeling is correct. I also am very nervous about the kinds of schools that are a viable, given my background. I‘d greatly appreciate any advice!

  25. Background: Graduated in 2019 with double major in Math and Computer Science and then worked in finance industry for a year. Returning this fall for a masters in the computer science department (at my school most statistics is under computer science) and will focus on some combination of machine learning / inference. My areas of interest in statistics are bayesian inference, causal inference, theoretical machine learning, and theoretical statistics. I am also interested in applications to healthcare. I would like to evaluate my prospects for applying to PhD programs in the fall in Statisti
