2019 Stat phd profile evaluation


Recommended Posts

 I am planning to apply for some statistics PhD programs this fall. Some of the profiles I saw here really terrifies me : (  I am wondering if someone can offer some advice on my program selection.
Undergrad: large state university 
Majors: Econ and Math
GPA: 3.3/4.0 overall, 3.5/4.0 major 
Master: a top 20 private school but not famous for stat
Major: Statistics
GPA: 4.0/4.0
GRE General Test: 170 Q, 150 V 4.0W
GRE Subject Test in Mathematics: None
Research Experience: probably none. (1-year irrelevant research in marketing during undergrad, some class projects and individual projects in machine learning and forecasting).
Research interest: Time series, stochastic, financial mathematics
Internship:  2 internships in financial institutions
Letters of Recommendation: I got four from professors in my current master's program (3 tenure, 1 adjunct). 
I am thinking about Rice, George Washington, Northwestern, JHU(see if I'm lucky) and some more programs which I haven't decided yet. If you have any suggestions or need specific info, please leave a comment. I really appreciate it.
