Fall 2024 Ph.D. Statistics Profile Evaluation


Recommended Posts

Undergrad Institution: Large State School (R1, 100+ Math Ranking)
Major(s): Mathematics
GPA: 4.0
Type of Student: Domestic white male

GRE General Test:
Q:
 170
V: 163
(don't know writing yet)
 
Programs Applying: MS and PhD in Statistics
 
Research Experience: Interdisciplinary research (computer science, polisci, & statistics) under math professor, never published.
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: National Merit Scholarship, Summa Cum Laude
Letters of Recommendation: Strong one from professor I did research (and had courses) with, another strong one from an applied course professor, a good one from proof-based professor. None are well-known

I am already certain about a few programs (MS and PhD) that I am applying to, just looking for a suggested range to target for any additional schools or any other feedback. Definite preference for urban campuses, but not necessary. Thank you!!

Looks like you have great grades, test scores, and depth of mathematical coursework along with some research experience with solid LoR's. I think you would be competitive pretty much everywhere for PhD programs, just depends on what you want (location/research area/etc.). Any ideas what kind of research you want to do, or do you have any geographical preferences?

Thanks for the feedback! I would generally prefer to research topics that are more applied than theoretical, but the type of research is less important to me than a strong culture in the department. Geographically, I care most about the walkability/transit options of the campus and the city it's in. Both coasts and midwest are good for me.
