Kayla M Posted December 27, 2016 Share Posted December 27, 2016 Hi there, I'm just trying to get an idea of what kind of graduate schools I have a chance at. I'd really appreciate any feed back. Undergraduate Institution: Penn State Main / Statistics Major, Math major, econ minor GPA: 3.33/4.0 really bad gpa freshman year but I brought it up. kind of went down last semester a little lol. Around 3.5 average for math and stat classes. Math Courses: Calc 1, 2 (A-), Calc 3 (C), Diff EQ (A), Combinatorics (A-), Into Discrete Math (B-), Into Real Analysis (A-), Intro Probability (A), Matrices (B+), Linear Programming (A), Numerical Computations (A) Stat Courses: Into to Statistical Inference (A), Stochastic Modeling (A), ANOVA (A-), Regression (A), Time Series (B), Non Parametric Stat (B), Survey Sampling (A), Intro to Sas (B+), Intermediate & advanced SAS (A-) Type of Student: Domestic asian female with white person name (so I guess I could put do not answer under ethnicity, not sure if it'll look better as a white or asian female) Research Experience: Did an REU where I learned Bayesian stat. Not very much actual research. So I got recommendation letter from one of the professors who is in charge of it. Currently doing research in the psych department where I'm doing data cleaning in R Letters of Recommendations: 1 probably decent from professor I did reserach with over the summer 2nd one probably decent from adviser who i've known for around 3 years. Got a B+ in her matrices class 3rd one from professor who I didn't do much research with. Got an A in his probability class but a B+ in his stochastic modeling class GRE: V: 155 i think 78% Q: 166 i think 90% W: 4.5 probably 80% Schools I'm planning on Applying to: Penn State Cornell Pittsburgh Iowa State Columbia Purdue I'm really trying to find a school that I can get out with a Masters in one year. If anyone else has any idea what schools I would have a chance at, please let me know. I think I have a pretty good chance at Penn State since that's my undergrad institution but I'd really like to know what my chances are at the other ones on the list, particularly Cornell.
