I benefit from the regular seminars. It is encouraging to listen good speakers and get a chance to talk with professors outside of classroom. It is valuable to see them asking questions, involving with the seminar talks and observing their methods for grasping a subject. I will be able to write about the cons of the program in future. It should be on the lack of competitiveness.

The pros of this graduate program is that there are classes that are available and if you can TA you can cover the tuition. The cons are that those that teach the masters program really do not want to. The courses are aimed for the phd and consequently very little about application is covered. The foundation courses are highly theoretical but neglect to provide the resources either through text books or discussions to make the home work or the exams successful experiences. Google and Wikipedia are the main teachers in this program. There is low level contempt for needs of applied masters students that some faculty actually vocalize. The department has said that the needs of the undergraduates out weight any revamping that might be done to improve the courses for the masters students.

Graduation Year: 2017

The PhD and Masters programs in Statistics at UW-Madison is a good mix of theory and applications. The school emphasizes building a strong foundation in theoretical mathematical statistics during the initial years and then use the background to apply statistics in different areas of science, engineering, medical sciences, etc. With world class faculty all around the campus, this is one of the best places to get a graduate degree from.
