MrKrabs3 Posted August 21, 2020 Share Posted August 21, 2020 (edited) Undergrad Institution: Big state school (CSU) Major: Economics Minor: MathGPA: 3.835 (Magna Cum Laude, 4.0 if looking at just last 60 units) Type of Student: Domestic White MaleGRE General Test: Taking it in a few weeks, have done very well on practice tests so I believe I can get 165+ Q and 160+ V at the very least - AWA probably 4.0+. Also willing to retake it if necessary. Programs Applying: Statistics PhD (but not necessarily opposed to biostatistics) Research Experience: Nothing unless you count an econometrics capstone project. Only decided to go beyond undergrad within the last semester or so. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Very likely that I will be awarded as the top/outstanding Economics student, however that award seems to not be happening/has been delayed due to the covid situation. Letters of Recommendation: Very strong letter from the calc-based probability and real-analysis professor. Strong (or better) letters from calc-based mathematical stats, proof-based linear algebra, and econometrics professors. I can go into more detail about these professors on request. Math/Statistics Grades: Calc I (B+), Calc II (A+), Calc III/Multivariable (A+), Real Analysis (A+), Linear Algebra (fairly proof-based) (A+), Proofs Class (been told it's akin to a slightly more advanced discrete math class) (A+), Calc-Based Probability (A+), Calc Based Mathematical Statistics (A+), Econometrics (A+), Basic Stats Class (A+)Schools: Any recommendations here can help, but my main goal is to attend a decent UC and UC Irvine specifically is my current target (are programs in the top 30-60 range a reach for me? Should I consider a Master's instead?). Edited August 21, 2020 by MrKrabs3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
