Fall 2012 Operations Research M.S PhD Profile Evaluation


Recommended Posts

I am applying for Operation Research and some statistics programs

Below are my profiles, can you help me to take a look and comment on my chances of getting in? I welcome suggestions for other schools as well. My plan is to either get into a phd or to getting into a prestigious master's program. My biggest disadvantage is that I graduate with a 4-year degree in 3 years, so I did not take as many courses as others, the courses below are the courses completed by the end of my sophomore year.

I would really appreciate your help, thanks!
