xu3cl4 Posted May 29, 2021 Share Posted May 29, 2021 (edited) Type: International asian male Bachelor Institution: McGill University (Canada) Major: double major in honours computer science and statistics GPA: 4.0/4.0 (got A for all the courses taken that are not S/Ued due to the pandemic) Courses taken: Ｍathematics : Honours analysis 1, Honours analysis 2 (topology), abstract algebra 1, Honours algebra 2 (S/U), Honours probability theory, Measure-theoretic probability, Vector calculus, Honours matrix numerical analysis Statistics : Mathematical statistics, Non-parametric statistics, Regression, Generalized linear model CS : Algorithm and data structures, Introduction to computer system (S/U), Programming languages and paradigms, Honours algorithm designs (linear programming, complexity theory, approximation algorithm, etc.), Introduction to data science, Applied machine learning Other courses I will take before my graduation: Mathematics : Honours analysis 4 (functional analysis), Optimization, Stochastic Process CS: Theory of computation, Matrix Computation (equivalent to a graduate numerical analysis course offered by the math department) Master institution: N/A Research experience: Done/Progressing: Summer 2020/2021 on copulas theory (a paper expected to be published, full-time research) Other research that I will do: Fall 2021 on functional data analysis (full-time research), Winter 2022 on deep learning theory (through a cs project course) GRE: I will take them in July LOR: Expecting 1 decent and 2 strong recommendations I currently consider to apply to 6 stats PhD (UC berkeley, U of Washington, Harvard, Cornell, U of Toronto and one more) plus the fast-track master at McGill. I wonder if the idea would be realistic in light of my profile, and If I should apply to more schools for safety. I appreciate any advice in advance !
