Kepa Posted March 8, 2017 Share Posted March 8, 2017 (edited) Hi Guys, another School A or School B question here. This time it's UNC and NC State for a phd in statistics, perhaps the most diametrically opposed (in terms of theory vs applied) of the departments I applied to. As for me, my interests are not very set in stone. I enjoy machine learning and spatial stats, but I'm fairly open to most subjects in stats/probability. And my mind is not made up on industry vs academia, so I would prefer the school that keeps either option open. I would highly appreciate any input on my dilemma. Particularly on the question of which department is considered "more prestigious" as I keep getting ambiguous responses to this question (US news world vs other rankings, statistics vs probability professors, etc) (A&M is also an option, but I would need some major convincing to live in college station) Edited March 8, 2017 by Kepa Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
