Program Applying: [Applied] Math, some Statistics PhD
Interests: numerical analysis, probability, analysis, statistics; applications to economics and biology
Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Dean's list couple semesters
Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Worked for two years (part time during undergrad now full time in gap year) in biostatistics lab in cancer center at my university, no papers with my name on them, just some code. Will use letter of recommendation from PI for statistics programs, not math.
Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Recommenders are all senior professors, two with year long sequences, got all A's, was vocal in class/office hours
Any Other Info That Shows Up On our App and Might Matter: Pretty famous letter writers
All math courses: calc III: A, linear algebra: A-, intro probability: A, ode: A, analysis I: A, analysis II: A, intro math statistics I/II: A/A, numerical analysis I/II: A-/A, intro real analysis: A-, number theory: A-
(econometrics in econ department: A)
Question for the world: Are my chances better at statistics programs given my courses and work experience? I prefer math and am kicking myself for not taking more pure classes, math REU and working as a grader/tutor in math... Many schools on my list are at math departments at schools without statistics departments.
Applying to Where:
This is currently an enormous list of schools from (usnews) rank 20-100, will update later
