pqstat Posted September 10, 2016 Share Posted September 10, 2016 (edited) Undergrad Institution: Large State University (Only school in state with stat dept.)Major: Statistics Minor: GeneticsGPA: 3.84 Overall; 3.95 major Type of Student: Domestic Asian female Courses/ Background: Calc I (A), Calc II (A-), Calc III (B), Statistical Methods (A), Stat Experimental Design (A), Linear Regression [Honors] (A), Stat Programming (A), Applied Linear Regression [Honors] (A), Mathematical Stats I (A), Mathematical Stats II (A-) In progress: Statistical capstone series (2 semesters) - we are assigned a project from the university consulting department. Planning to take: Intro to proofs and time series analysis GRE scores: 153 Q; 148 V; 3.5 W (Didn't study the first time; planning to retake next month) Research Experience: 1 REU working with wavelets and functional regression with genetic data (currently working on a manuscript); 2 projects at home institution - 1 will be my honors thesis. Both projects are related to genetics.Other related experience: Will present at two research conferences next month and one next spring; completed honors projects for linear algebra class (covered usage of PCA in genetics) and linear regression class. Honors/Awards: University honors program, honors program research assistantship. Letters of Recommendation: -Research PI from REU -Research PI from thesis project -MathStat I professor; I spent a lot of time in his office, so he knows my work ethic. On list to apply to: UW, Rice, Vanderbilt, Emory, UC San Diego, Pittsburgh, Ohio State, UGA, NC State Thinking of adding: UConn, UNC Chapel Hill, UC Berkeley What are your thoughts? Are there any that I should take off or add? I'm into application more than theory, but I want a strong theoretical background. My main interest is in genetics, though I'm also interested in the fields of microbiome and immunology. I'm leaning heavily towards a career in industry, but academia is still an option.
