literaryreference Posted March 21, 2014 Share Posted March 21, 2014 As acceptances and rejections for Pure Stat PhD programs start to roll in and I am getting a better picture of what my options will be, I am wondering if anyone has any input on unranked programs. Programs like George Mason, University of Arizona, UVA, Virginia Tech, UCSB, UCR, Temple, GWU, and Pitt are all on places I have applied and which are on my radar. I am unlikely to pursue academia outright, and would prefer to work in industry or government. Is there a major difference in access to opportunity or earnings potential in industry and/or government between attending an unranked/low ranked school vs. attending a top 20-30 school? Among this list, are their any schools that should be avoided outright? I am finding that I am getting more generous funding offers from unranked schools. I would appreciate any input anyone has into the process as I am tying my brain into knots trying to figure out what to do. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
