redevol727 posted a topic in Decisions, DecisionsHello All, I want to keep this relatively short so I'll start by saying that I am currently deciding between UChicago & UMichigan (fully funded PhD), although I just visited UIUC (am still processing the visit but my gut is not as blown away as I was by the first two). UMichigan gave me a full merit fellowship (5 semesters, full funding the rest of my 5 years) that would allow me to avoid TA duties if I so choose. UChicago's stipend is higher and they gave me a small recruitment fellowship after I visited. I came from a small, liberal arts college so I feel like UChicago, as an institution, is more in line with the educational philosophy of my own undergraduate institution; it also has the small-school feel I am used to. Additionally, I feel like it has a higher prestige, as a whole, than UMichigan, which my advisor said might come into play after grad school (though I feel like on the department level, they are very much equals). I also come from NYC so Chicago is much more like home. What's making my choice very difficult is my bias towards UChicago as an institution and the fact that I am being recruited fairly heavily by my favorite professor at UMichigan; the stipends are almost identical when adjusted for cost of living but UMichigan's holds more prestige. Anyway, as a first-generation college student and a student from several underrepresented backgrounds, I thought I'd ask you guys for any advice. Any, and all advice/thoughts would be much appreciated! Please feel free to message me as well!
Who else applied to Michigan's MPP program? It was a last-minute decision for me but I'm actually really excited about this program. Of course, even if I get in, I'm out of state, so the funding situation might be rough. Has anyone heard anything?
Hey everyone! I am wondering which one should I choose. Columbia University is a big name and it locates in NYC. However, I heard the reputation of their Statistics program is not that good in recent years. I really like University of Michigan, it has relatively small class size (about 30) and the school overall has a good reputation. But Quantitative Finance and Risk Management (QFRM) is a new program (opened in 2015) and its location is not as good as Columbia's. The key parameter I am considering is job placement. Thank you for your help!
Hi! I've been recently admitted to the University of Michigan applied masters in statistics program. I would like to know more about the reputation of the program. Are the classes hard/ is the program tough? Is the program worth the money? Do students who graduate from here have a better chance for a statistics PHD in the future? ( Since I know it is a program that focuses on sending students into the industry) Thank you!
