I am stressing over everything right now. Do programs generally contact you if you have missing documents such as LORs, test scores? Or is it all on the online portal so as long as there are no outstanding items then you are good?
I have a few major questions: Should I report the GRE mathematics subject score to schools that don't require it? If so, which ones? And is that score bad enough to exclude some of the top ones like Harvard, Stanford, Chicago or Columbia? I recognize that it might be. Thanks so much for any help/advice you can provide! Type of Student: Undergraduate in final semester Undergrad School: Smallish Canadian School Undergrad Major: Statistics, Minors: mathematics, economics Undergrad GPA: 4.30 out of 4.33 (4.33 in math and statistics) GRE: Q = 168 (94th percentile), V = 159 (83rd percentile), AW = 4 (59th percentile) Math Subject GRE: 77TH PERCENTILE Relevant Undergrad Courses & Grades: (All A+ grades) Intro Analysis I, Intro Analysis II (essentially first 11 chapters of Rudin in these two), Statistical Theory, Stochastic Processes, Applied Time Series, Complex Variables, ODEs, Sample Surveys, Design of Experiments - and currently taking: Abstract Algebra, PDEs, and two ML intro courses Research Experience: 2 Undegraduate Research Awards (equivalent of REUs in the US) with different professors over the last two summers (one in experimental design, the other in uncertainty quantification). No papers, this summer's project might turn into one, but not before the applications are done - I feel like I'm lacking in the ability to actually show research potential. Recommendation Letters: 2 strong letters from professors that know me well and can speak to my mathematical background. One that might not be perfect since he doesn't know me as well (but I've had 2 A+ grades with him and spoken to him on occasion) Applying to: (ALL PHD IN STATISTICS unless otherwise noted) - Tentative list (it's huge I know but I have a little bit of money to throw away): University of Toronto UBC (MSc statistics) NC State Washington Michigan Carnegie Mellon Duke Columbia Chicago Harvard Stanford Berkeley
I am not sure if I should retake the GRE. I am looking into very ambitious Biomedical Sciences programs in the USA. I am looking at Gerstner Sloan Kettering, Mt. Sinai, Duke, and MIT to name a few. I have considerable research experience and a 3.7 GPA, but my GRE scores were mid-range: 161 Verbal, 163 Quant, 4.5 Analytical Writing. For admissions statistics, I am still within the range of scores of admitted students, but a grad student in my lab suggested I should retake the test because he didn't think the scores were good enough to get into the places I was looking at. Please advise.
Hi all! I am applying this fall to a couple of MPP/MPA programs in the USA: Harris, UCLA, Columbia, Ford UMich, LBJ UTexas, but I am a little bit concerned on my GRE performance as I am moving between fields and I have no prior quantitative preparation. I am taking the test in two weeks but I believe my scores will be something like V:150 - Q:140-145 I would like to know if someone has been accepted to a competitive school with low GRE scores? If yes, please share your scores as well as your schools! I appreciate your comments, best regards!
