    More stats/math VS LORS

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi

    I will apply phd next year and need some advice for my course selection.

    Basically, I am facing two paths,
    1. Take econ elective course which require me to write a master thesis. I expect to be able to build good relationship with the professor and get a good LOR from him.

    2. Take stochasic process and machine learning course.

    FYI, I majored math in undergrad and courses I have are cal1, 2, 3, linear algebra, differential equation, analysis, real analysis, probability, intro stats, theoretical stats, non linear dynamics, abstact algebra, numerial analysis. (Mostly A/A- but B+ in diffequ and B in cal I)

    Under this circumstances, should I need to take machine and stochastic analysis? I am aiming TOP 5-10.

    Do the master's thesis. Not a close call.

    I would greatly taper my expectations if I were you since you said your GPA was 3.76 and got rejected from Toronto and Oxford before. But I agree with Startz
