tomt99 Posted March 28, 2021 Share Posted March 28, 2021 Student Type: Domestic Asian Student Undergrad: A top US Stats University Major: Math and a Coterminal Masters in Statistics. GPA: 3.91 (4.06 for Masters) Math: Linear Algebra (A+), Multivariable Calc (A-), Differential Equations (A), Topology and Geometry (A), Applied Linear Algebra (A), Measure Theoretic Stochastic Processes (A), Functions of a Real Variable (CR, COVID), Analysis (A), Lebesgue Integration and Fourier Analysis (A), Grad Level Measure Theory (A-), Differential Topology (A), Groups and Rings (A), Galois Theory (A), Complex Analysis (A), Elementary Functional Analysis (A), Discrete Probabilistic Methods (A). Stats: Intro to Stochastic Processes 1 (A), II (CR, COVID), Mathematical Statistics (A), Applied Stats (A+), Linear Models and ANOVA (CR), Data Mining and Analysis (A), AI Principles and Techniques (A-), Deep Learning (A), Bayesian Stats (Phd level, A), Applied Bayesian Stats (Phd level, A), Convex Optimization 1 (Phd Level, A), Convex Optimization 2 (Phd Level, A). For the Math courses, all are undergrad courses unless otherwise indicated. For the stats courses, they are all Masters courses except for the last 4 courses. I started Math a bit late, as I switched to Math from Computer Science the summer before my Junior year (didn't do too hot in computer science though). As a result, I wasn't able to dive as deeply into Math as I would have liked to. Also the school I go to is notorious for grade inflation, so the grades that I get are not of any particular significance. GRE: Will take this qtr. Research: I wrote some final papers for math classes. I also have a first authored paper on COVID mutation in a CDC journal and an honors thesis for math that I did on random graphs. Letters of Recommendation: One from a well-known stats professor. The other two done by assistant professors in Math and Statistics. Two of them were my honors thesis advisors and the other I authored the paper under and worked with her for 2 years on biostats. I wanted to apply to Stats programs. I have no particular research interests quite yet, so I am really open to anything, though I would prefer departments that focus more on theory. As such, I wanted to know which programs (in general) would be realistic for me to get into. I've talked to my advisor but also wanted to get other opinions as well (including on here!) Thanks!
