  1. 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 (mainly writing machine learning analysis code. unsupervised, supervised, classification, nlp, etc.) After working in industry for a while I really feel that I want to do more advanced-level work. Anyways here are some info that I've been able to gather about the program: 1. 7 faculty, 13 phds, 10 masters students in total (part of the Math Department) 2. Required courses: 5, including: a series of two classes (two series to choose from, one 400 level on mathematical statistics and one 500+level that's more proof based. 400 series might be taught by postgrad lecturers; 500+ by faculty) one out of two classes (one 400 level and one 500+ level on linear models. I couldn't find any meaningful difference in course description. Both taught by faculty) two 400 level classes on bayesian and statistical computation. Both taught by faculty. 3. Optional thesis 4. Two year program assumed by a line that says 'two semesters (or 18 units)' in the description and the program requires 36 units to graduate. I do have three concerns for the program: 1. It seems like this program is a 'cash cow' since it says no financial support. Does this necessarily imply lower quality for and attention given to masters students? 2. Even though there's a full phd outcome page, there is no mentioning of masters outcome. 3. Some classes (including required) are 400 level. Does this necessarily mean they are undergraduate level courses, or just being 400 due to administrative reasons? Some supporting info: the phd program also requires the two 400 level classes on bayesian and statistical computation. Does anyone have any thoughts on the program? Or is there anything that can be inferred about the program based on the info that I found? Would really appreciate any help.
  2. Hi all, I am posting this question to anyone who might have applied to anthropology program at Washu/Wustl. Have you had interview with them? If yes, when and how many times. I have not heard anything yet and at this moment I cannot wait anymore. I have seen four updates in the result page stating interviews with faculty members. Thank you so much.
  3. Hi I'm an international student and I recently got into a master's program for NYU and WUSTL. I know at a first glance NYU seems much more superior, but I have a few issues that bugs me. One is obviously the money. WUSTL offered a full tuition remission for one year ( not sure about my 2nd year, they didn't say anything in the letter about extending the offer to my second year) NYU offered about 20k off from tuition for one year. They did say this offer is contingent in my second year, so I need to hold a good academic standing in my first year. It's also obvious that NYC is notorious for expensive rents and other fees. I know NYU is one of the top universities in relation to film, and NYC itself is full of resources and opportunities for film-related work, but the money is a bit of a worry for me. Also, although I've lived my life in a big city for +15 years, I don't think I'm such a city person based on past experiences, so I'm worried whether I'll be able to get used to the environment. I really don't need the extra stress. All this seems to aim at going to WUSTL, but my other problem is that I haven't really decided for certain whether I want to get into PhD after my master's for now, since I ultimately aim to work as a film programmer rather than teaching academically. If I was certain about getting into PhD, I probably would choose go to WUSTL, since I have another chance of applying for PhDs in the future. But since I may just finish my studies with a Master's degree, it just increases my uncertainty about going to WUSTL Master's Program. I did also get into UCLA and UT Austin Master's as well, but they didn't offer any funding or tuition remission, so I'm only considering NYU and WUSTL right now. I've been stressing over this for days, but I just can't make up my mind. Any advice would be really helpful.
  4. Any WUSTL applicants waiting for a decision? I thought it'd be fun to make a thread seeing as there was none! Post here if you get any info from the school!
  5. Did anyone else get a phone call from Washington University in St. Louis before they finished submitting the application? I did. I've had schools in the past call me after I'd been accepted, but never before I'd even submitted the application. My advisor thinks it's a good sign, but poking around this forum someone said they get a very "sales" vibe to WUSTL admissions, and I could see how that could be the case.
  6. Hi everyone! I'm new to Gradcafe, and this is my first time to create a topic here! I'm applying to MA program in art history, and my long-term goal is to get a PhD in art history. I am very fortunate to be accepted to the MA programs of UMass-Amherst and Washington University in St. Louis, both with funding. I like both programs for their intimate atmosphere because of the small graduate student body, and both programs have professors that I would love to work with. I feel it very hard to make a choice between the two. I wonder if anyone could provide me with more information about the two programs? How well are their graduates placed to PhD programs and museums/galleries?
  7. Hey all, I recently got accepted into UT Austin, University of Notre Dame, WUSTL and UCRiverside for a PhD in Chemical Engineering. All offers have similar funding and all the programs are pretty great, especially UT Austin and Notre Dame. I want to continue in academia so I want to make a good decision about my university. Any advice? Thanks!
  8. Trying to decide between two great offers from Washington University in St. Louis/Sam Fox School of Art, and UNC-Chapel Hill. I'm going for a Masters of Fine Arts, with an emphasis on college teaching preparation. WUSTL/Sam Fox sounds like a great school, and I'm pretty excited about being in St. Louis. The class size is medium, and they are offering me a very nice package. The school is very conceptual and independently driven, which is what I'm looking for in a program. UNC-Chapel Hill has offered me a bit better of a deal (although, the tuition for UNC is lower than WUSTL, so they can afford it in a way.) The program is also very conceptual and independently driven, but they only take very few students each year, making their class size very small and intimate. I'm a little worried about this-- I feel like too small a size might mean that everyone influences each other in each incoming class, and everyone's work might develop similarly. I know it's not totally possible, but I'm still a little worried about it. So, My advice is, - Medium Sized program, or Very Tiny program? -St. Louis or Chapel Hill? -Really Good Offer or Great offer? Thank you!
  9. Hi guys, I got a few problems with the GPA calculation requirement by WUSTL. They sent me a calculation sheet with the method. After I converted my scores based on 100-scale to 4-scale, some of them cannot be put into the categories provided by the sheet (e.g. should GPA like 2.5 be put into 2.3 or 2.7?) Maybe I should just ignore the sheet and calculate a weighted GPA? Another question is that I also have transcripts from Australian universities. They use different grading system there, something like Distinction, Credit, Pass etc. Although they also put a 100-scale based score on my transcript, it looks significantly lower. Because the pass score is 50 instead of 60. How am I going to deal with these differences ?
