shahrukhatik Posted November 14, 2016 Share Posted November 14, 2016 (edited) I'm looking to apply for Masters or PhD programs in Statistics / Data Science and wondering if you guys could give me a profile evaluation and potentially some advise. Stats: Undergraduate: Small state school graduate with a double major in Economics and Data Science. 2 Minors in statistics and mathematics. GPA 3:89Math coursework includes -> Calc I-III, Linear Alg, Differential Equations, Game Theory Statistics coursework includes -> Regression, Multivariate analysis, Statistical Consulting, Design of Survey's etc (And then 50 credits worth of economics classes) Skills developed: R, SAS, Python, Java, Tableau Honors: I was a distinguished graduate(1 person from my entire program) and graduated with magna cum laude. GRE: 153 Q , 148 V - I am terrible at standardized tests, and I cant simply afford to give it again. Research Experience: 2 econometric papers that I worked on over a year under economics faculty. LOR: I'm sure all 3 of them will be great Letter of Intent: I have decent writing skills, so I think I can pull off a decent SOP. Industry Experience: I've worked as a Sales Analytics Intern for a fortune 100 company. I've also worked as a academic tutor for 2 years and as a voluntary statistical consultant for 6 months. Programs I'm Applying To: Statistics (MS): UMASS Amherst Boston University Data Science (MS): Worceister Polytechnic Institute Statistics (PhD): University of Nebraska - Lincoln University of Iowa Questions: What do you guys think are my chances of getting into these schools. I have a low GRE score and I really can't do anything about it. Should I talk about my low GRE score in my statement of purpose or should I just avoid it all together? Any other thoughts on universities I should look into while I still have a window of application time?
