Computing-II (71/100) Other Information:-Did a 6 months project on 'Random Truncation Modelling of Air Traffic Control Data'. I secured 84/100 in the project. My project supervisor will be my main recommender in my PhD application. Grad Institute 2:- University of Paris Saclay/University of Paris Dauphine/Sorbonne (one among these) Degree:- 2nd year Master's Diploma (called M2 in France) in 'Applied Mathematics' Current GPA:- 14/20 Relevant Courses:- Advanced Learning (11/20), Convex Optimization (12/20), Optimization for ML (12.5/20), Graphical Models (13/20), Statistics for High Dimensions (12/20), Biostatistics (15/20), Applied Bayesian Statistics (15.5/20), Bayesian Nonparametrics & Bayesian ML (16.5/20), Machine Learning for Medical Data (17/20), Seminar on 'Machine Learning for genomics' (19/20) End-of-studies Master's Project:- Currently working with one senior professor on the topic 'Machine Learning Methods for GWAS and subsequent control of False discoveries.' I am not sure if I can get reco from the professor as he rather wants me to continue with him for PhD. Other Information:- Got a very selective fellowship from a French Maths Foundation to study my master's in France. GRE:- Not appeared yet, but practice test reveals around:- 170 Q, 152 V Other LORs:- One assistant professor from my alma mater in Paris who taught me a course. Rest all are from ISI. Possibly in some places I will add one from my undergrad alma mater too. Programs Aiming- Biostatistics:- UNC, UCLA, UMinnesota, Emory, Brown, Boston, UPitt, Penn State Statistics:- NCSU, UT Austin, UC Irvine, Colorado State, Rice Am I competitive enough for the schools I listed? Any specific suggestions or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in anticipation. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
