Fall 2019 Statistics Applicant Thread

Recommended Posts

I've received an email from the Texas A&M Statistics Department nominating me for a university-based diversity fellowship and encouraging me to apply. But nothing was said about whether I am admitted or not. Does anybody know what this means in terms of my admission to the university?

It's probably not great of me to be tagging a busy grad student in here, but I recall that @Bayesian1701 got that diversity fellowship last year, so maybe she can help you.

I would think that means that you're admitted, but it certainly would be great if you could get $$$ while not attending! In all seriousness, this probably means you're in, but a school told me I would get a fellowship last year and then told me I wouldn't be able to attend after the visit day, so I would never count anything 100%, but you should be good.

Ok thanks for the info, everyone! Hopefully we'll hear more from A&M (and other schools!) soon.

I submitted my application on December 14th, so definitely wayyyy before the deadline. I also read on their stats dept website that admissions are rolling, so maybe they haven't gotten to your app yet

Thanks guys for the help! Also, I won an award at JMM last week, and was asked to sit on a panel regarding my research. Is it worthwhile to send an update to the schools I applied to? If so, do I just send it to the staff there and ask for them to pass it along, or to the grad coordinator? Thanks!

Maybe they are rejecting all of us ? I feel like there won't be that much time for interviews now.

Also, I see some UW Applied Math acceptances; I know this is a Stats thread, but did anyone else hear back from them? I'm curious if they mentioned anything about applicant pool, timeline, etc., in their accept/reject notices.

I checked UW yesterday and my application status is still submitted. I'd imagine probably next week they would start sending out notices since their deadline was Dec 3rd.

Thanks, @MathStat and @ducky500! For anyone wondering, I did email Texas A&M about my admissions. They confirmed that I am accepted and that I will receive TA/RA funding even if I'm not awarded the fellowship. 

I haven't heard anything yet about the Stats Ph.D. at UW and Duke. My application statuses are still just "submitted".

I was referring to UW Applied Math. Their deadline is actually 1/15 and they already have some accept/rejects out. Quite a turn around time! But yes, all my applications to them (Applied Math PhD, Statistics PhD, Math MS) still read as status submitted.

Congratulations for receiving good news, orchidnora and ducky500. Did anyone hear anything about Duke Statistics?

I just asked some Duke faculty and he told me they just finalized the application process yesterday and haven't sent out the interviews yet. So don't worry guys!

Huh, interesting wording. Do you know what he meant? Presumably the "application process" is already finalized, given the age of the program. Maybe they are making some changes to admissions this year?

Sorry for the confusion. He said something is finalized (I forget the exact words he used). He means they haven't sent out any letters yet. So don't worry!

Oh, sorry for misreading. That is a really quick turn around!

It seems like some admission decisions for Columbia’s MS Biostatistics program came out today. I got the email this morning, and I was accepted. Congrats to everyone else who got in!
