JosephXX Posted March 12, 2019 Share Posted March 12, 2019 (edited) Hi everyone!! Recently I have been admitted to the Stat MS program at Stanford & U Chicago and am struggling. I will try to advance to PhD after MS, but I don't know which school will offer me a better chance? I heard that Chicago has a good PhD prep and many research opportunities. I am not sure how Stanford is. But Stanford Stat ranks higher than U Chicago... Chicago Pros: - Tuition reduction (25%) - Good preparation for PhD - More research opportunity Cons: - Not as well-known as Stanford - Location is not as good. Stanford University Pros: - 1st in the country - So many well-known professors, a potential for recommendation letters and research opportunities Cons: - Not sure about placements - A lot of MS students, not sure if the professors will be willing to offer research opportunities. - Maybe the PhD prep is not as good as that in Chicago.
