“The size of Baylor's stats department and the genuine interest that the faculty take in the success of their students were the two main aspects that led me to this program.”
“My favorite classes were computational statistics and the two in the Bayes sequence. The professors I took those with, Dr. Kahle and Dr. Stamey, are two of the best I've had at any level.”
“Everyone made me feel like I could achieve the goal of getting a PhD and that I would have an amazing support system while doing it!”
