I'm a math major, and I did not do so well on the Math subject GRE. I'm applying to stats programs so it isn't a total wash, but it might be good to know, if anyone has some insight, which schools stand out as not emphasizing the GRE subject test and which do. I know that Stanford seems to (boasting an average 83%ile on the subject test), but are there other places I should avoid? Do most stats programs view the Math subject test as a nice bonus, but generally tangential to a solid application?

If it helps, my main interest is in nonparametric and semi-parametric Bayesian data analysis and statistical learning. I'm also interested in non-parametric modelling of point processes and applications of this to computational neuroscience.

Here is a list of schools I'm interested in for statistics:

Ohio State

CMU Statistics/machine learning (where I really want to go, but likely have no chance- will apply either way)

U Michigan Ann arbor

Cornell

UC Davis

UCLA

Texas A&M

Penn State

NC State
