ucsbStats Posted April 10, 2020 Share Posted April 10, 2020 Hi, I'm applying to Statistics masters and PhDs in this fall and I'm wondering how are my chances and how can I improve myself and school selections? Undergrad: UC Santa Barbara Major: Double major in Mathematics and Statistics GPA: 3.95 Student Type: International, South East Asian Math Courses: Calc I II III(A,B,A), Linear Algebra and Differential equations Honors(A), Probability and Statistics I,II,III(B+,A,A), Stochastic Processes I,II(A,A), Regression Analysis(A), Bayesian Statistics (A) , Statistical Data Science(A), Transition to Higher Math(AKA first Mathematical proof based class) (A), Real Analysis I,II (A), Abstract Algebra I(A), graduate level PDE(A), Intro to C++ (A) Will be taking graduate level(Statistical Machine Learning, Time series, Measure theory,) dvanced Linear Algebra in fall. Misc: Classical Mechanics (A), Electromagnetism (A) , Modern Physics (A), Thermal and Statistical Physics (A) GRE General: Q: 168 V: 158 W: 3.5 Math GRE: Not taking Research: - Independent Reading in Graduate level Geometric Group theory under the guidance of a PhD student from Math DRP program, will present a poster at my school by this spring - Ongoing Multivariate regression analysis project under the guidance of my current mentor - Ongoing Statistical Machine Learning project Letters of Recommendation: One from my Real Analysis Instructor, One excellent LOR from my mentor for Multivariate Regression project ,One from my Stochastic Processes Instructor Programs Applying to: Statistics PhD, Masters, Data Science masters Interests: Bayesian Statistics, Stochastic Analysis, Statistical Learning Considering to Apply to: PhD Statistics : UCDavis , UCSB, USC(Operations research), Boston University, UCSD, NYU MS Statistics : UCLA, Stanford, SDSU MS Data Science : USC , HARVARD Are the programs I mentioned above reasonable for an applicant like me? My target schools are all in California as my current girlfriend is in California and I don't want to move to another state unless I have to. I'm worried that being an international student will limit my chances at any of these schools. Any suggestion or criticism is welcomed! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
