Describe Baylor in One Word:

Community!

Why Statistics?

I was first introduced to statistics while studying applied mathematics as an undergraduate. During my year off after graduation, I decided that I wanted to pursue statistics further.

Faculty:

All the professors here are highly accomplished, yet they are still friendly and accessible. Also, they really take the time to make sure you understand concepts fully.

Why Baylor?

I briefly enrolled in a master's program at a small local university in Houston in order to take some additional statistics courses and eventually applied to transfer to the program here at Baylor.

Unique Aspects:

I think what's special about Baylor is that it has a very supportive learning environment-- students are willing to help each other out and professors are very accessible.

Baylor Community:

I just like having the opportunity to learn in a supportive and friendly environment. Also, I really like the Baylor campus.

Recommend Program:

Yes! Oprovides a great learning environment along with many great opportunities for the future.

Surprises at Baylor

No. Everything has pretty much gone as I expected.
