actuary Posted May 27, 2013 Share Posted May 27, 2013 Hello everyone, New to the forum here, and I have a few questions about admissions to MS CS programs. First some background. I graduated with bachelors degrees in actuarial science, economics, and statistics (3.8 GPA) 4 years ago and have been working as an actuary since, doing a variety of things, but most recently, predictive modeling (GLMs, Neural Nets, etc). I am now looking to get into a data science-y type role for one of the tech giants. While I have good work experience with modeling and data analysis, I have almost no background in computing apart from 2 programming classes in college. Basically, I am wondering if 1) a MS CS is the right path to help me get to where I want to be and 2) if good MS CS programs will consider my technical background (though non-CS) to be complete enough for admission, or if not 3) if I should instead take some NDO CS classes to bulk up my credentials first? Sorry for the long post, but I'd appreciate any advice anyone can offer! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
