Undergrad Institution: Grand Valley State University (public school in Michigan) Major(s): Statistics and Pure mathematics Minor(s): None GPA: 3.99/4.00

Type of Student: White male

GRE General Test:
Not planning on taking as many schools that I am looking at no longer accept these scores.

TOEFL Score: N/A

Programs Applying: Statistics and Biostatistics PhD's

Research Experience: One summer research internship in environmental statistics, next fall I am doing combinatoric research with the math department at my school, and the following winter I am hoping to do research into mathematical biology also with the math department. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Math dept scholar, Honors college, Mu Sigma Rho member, and Pi Mu Epsilon member. Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Tutor since the winter of 2022 in both mathematics and statistics and TA for statistics next year.

Letters of Recommendation: Planning on having a letter of recommendation from two math professors, one being my research mentor and the other being a professor I have had for a few classes, and a letter of recommendation from a statistics professor I had for probability and statistical theory. Additionally, I have started a bayesian statistics independent study with this statistics professor.

Math/Statistics Grades: Note: my school does not give out A+'s : Calc 1-3 (A's), Real analysis 1 (A), Linear algebra Intro (A), Linear algebra applications (A), Linear Algebra theory (A-), Probability theory (A), Mathematical Statistics (stats theory) (A), Intro to Proofs (A), Nonparametric statistics (A), 2 courses in statistical computing (R/SAS) (A's), 4 applied statistics courses (A's), and I am going to take diffeq, numerical analysis, mathematical modeling, real analysis 2, and abstract algebra next year (hopefully A's!). Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: I am studying abroad and taking diffeq.

Applying to Where: I still have yet to apply, as I will be a Fall 2025 applicant. However, the schools I am currently looking at for stats and biostats are: UNC, JHU, UW-Madison, UCB, UCSB, UCR, Duke, NCSU, Cornell, University ofNew Hampshire, Michigan, and UConn. I would love to hear feedback on how to refine my application further to increase my chances for these schools or on anything else.
