whatfuture Posted March 22 Share Posted March 22 Hello, I hope your graduate admissions are going well so far! I have been luckily accepted to Iowa State and Ohio State University for Statistics Ph.D., and I have a hard time deciding between the two. ISU seems to have a long history with many faculties and seems like a better choice if I'm hoping to go for academia. Also, the ranking is a bit higher, although they are pretty similar. However, I am a little worried about life in Ames as it is a very small college town. Although I will spend most of my time studying and researching, five years is a long time. In addition, I am open to going into industry, and I thought that getting intern opportunities and jobs in the future would be more accessible at Columbus. Also, I have been offered a fellowship at Ohio State, so the funding will be much better. As for my research interest, I am currently inclined toward the field of Statistical Learning or Causal Inference. Any advice, from life in both cities to any aspects of both graduate programs, will be really appreciated! Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
