Hey all, I got an admit from NU MSiA today. I'm v excited cause I only applied to NU and UChicago. Still waiting for UChicago Stats atm.  

Really the duration of the program! NYU's program is 2-years which fit my needs better. My undergrad wasn't in STEM and I wanted the opportunity to really immerse myself in the curriculum and feel lik

Thought I should chime in with my results, although I'm def not in the same league as you guys haha. Got into UT Austin's Business Analytics, CMU's MISM in the Business Intelligence and Data Analytics

Has anybody received an acceptance from Georgia Tech (Analytics)? I've seen a waitlist and a couple rejections posted on gradcafe and reddit...

Their admissions dashboard seems to confirm that 27 people have been admitted.

Update: Rejected from Carnegie Mellon MS Computer Science.

Anyone hear back from NYU MS Data Science / Northwestern MsiA?

I received an interview invite for NU MSiA and based on the schedule, interviews happened last week and will go on throughout this week.

Well if that's the case, and considering I haven't heard anything from then, it appears I'm shit out of luck. That being said, I'm wishing you the best KMickey! I hope your interview goes great :D

Hey, sorry but I'm actually not too sure. I believe it should be with the organizer/ the one who sent you the confirmation email. Also good luck on your interview. I talked to past students and they said it's not formal. Just mainly talking about soft skills. Good luck!

Hi all, contemplating on my decision right now and would love to hear some thoughts from others in the same boat. I'm leaning towards Stanford out of my top 3 admits. What do people think of Stanford's program vs Columbia or MIT MBAn?

Rejected

Harvard MS in Data Science 

Yale MS in Data Science 

UC Berkeley MA in Statistics

Admitted

1. Stanford MS in Stats: Data Science

2. Columbia Engineering MS in Data Science

3. MIT Masters in Business Analytics

4. NYU MS in Data Science 

5. Carnegie Mellon MS in Statistical Practice 

Waiting to Hear Back 

UCLA MS in Statistics - has anybody received a rejection or admit??

Nothing heard yet either from UCLA. But if I were you I would choose Stanford without a second thought. They are ranked 1 for a reason.

@diplodocus_ I have some similar admits! Also got into Stanford/MIT/Columbia, and rejected from Harvard (lol).

 

My impression is that Stanford's program is the most selective and probably the best for Silicon Valley tech. Personally, I'm also heavily considering MIT's MBAn because I prefer the east coast. I think the MBAn has a couple of other nice features that stand out, such as the 1) tight-knit cohort/sense of community and 2) great professional support. MIT's program also seems more applied than Stanford's program, if you have any preference on how theoretical v. applied the curriculum is. Another difference between these two schools that stands out is the length-- I do like that Stanford's program is a couple quarters longer and accommodates a summer internship.

Columbia is a great school for undergrad, but I have the impression that its Master's programs have very large cohorts, so there doesn't seem to be the same sense of community at the grad level. I also heard from a Columbia alum that the DSI classes are mostly night classes to help accommodate part-time students, if that affects your decision at all. On the other hand, if you want to be in NYC and develop a network there, Columbia should be fantastic for that.

Curious to hear your thoughts on Stanford/MIT/Columbia as well!
