Stat PhD:JHU AMS or UPittsburg stat


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am lucky to be accepted by JHU AMS(Applied math and statistics) phd and Upitt stat phd program , but am having a hard time deciding which one to choose.

My B.S major is mathematics and so I think theoretical stat may be more suitable to me. I contact one professor at Upitt who is really good at stat theory and I think he is a good match for me.So I was planning to go to Upitt until I found the placement is kind of disappointing: many for medicine industry( I am not very interested in).On the other hand, professors at JHU focus mainly on computing stat which I am not sure I can manage, but the placement is attractive: almost everyone is to be a data scientist in IT or finance field.

Anyone has any thoughts on these two programs? (especially for AMS@JHU because I can't find its rank at US.News.) Thanks a lot!
