dino88 Posted February 15, 2009 Share Posted February 15, 2009 Hi, I'm kind of a newbie to statistics and come from a different discipline. I've googled the net, but didn't come up with much. So, can someone please explain the following to me: 1) If you applied to a Statistics PhD program and got accepted to an MS/PhD, is that the same thing as getting accepted to a PhD? Pros? Cons? 2) Rankings. I am a bit confused as to what Stats PhD programs are top 10 or top 20 versus top 50 or 100. I suppose this would affect your placement in the end. Can anyone be so kind as to list some schools that are not listed on the U.S. News and World Report for the Math:Statistics (http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandr ... statistics)? For example, where do these Ivy League schools fit in that are not on that list? (the ones missing are Yale, Cornell, UPenn...I didn't even know Princeton had a Stats Dept. - I searched their site) Or places like CMU or even international schools like Oxford? I don't really care about rankings, but I'd hate to walk into a program that was way out there. 3) Is there a distinction between Bayesian and Classical? 4) What is the typical size of an incoming PhD Stats class? Any thoughts about that? Thank you. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
