zetacat Posted May 21, 2021 Share Posted May 21, 2021 Hi everyone, I’m currently a graduating math major and I am interested in transitioning into statistics. I’m having trouble figuring out which programs are realistic for me especially given the lack of statistics coursework. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Undergrad Institution: top 10 US news Major(s): Mathematics GPA: 3.88 Type of Student: domestic male GRE: Q: 170 V: 162 W: 4 Subject not taken yet Coursework (completed) Mathematics - undergrad- Honors Calculus 1,2,3 - (A), Linear Algebra(proof-based) - (A), Honors Analysis 1,2,3 - (A), Honors Algebra 1,2,3 - (A) Algebraic Number Theory - (A), Algebraic Geometry -(A), Topology - (A), Algebraic Topology - (A), Representation Theory - (A-), Reading courses - (A) Graduate- Graduate Analysis 1,2,3 - (B+,B+,A), Graduate Geometry 1,2 - (A-,A-), Graduate Algebra 1,2,3 (A-,A,A) Statistics - intro statistics for non-majors - (A), Probability (proof-based) - (A), Graduate Measure-Theoretic Probability (A) Computer Science- Intro computer science 1, 2 - (A-,A) Future coursework Considering taking some additional graduate stat courses as a non-degree student. Research experience Attended some REU’s, but they were not focused on research. Wrote expository papers but they were on topics in algebra. Letters of recommendation Will be asking math professors which I’ve taken courses/reading with. I’m mainly wondering what schools I should be looking at. Given the lack of statistics experience would it be better to apply to a masters program before a phd? I am also wondering how much my graduate analysis grades will hurt me?
