Major: Engineering Department (This Major's Salary over time)
I am a Grad student with dual undergraduate degrees, including one in Engineering. I have job experience related to teaching, engineering, product development, and statistics. Heck, I have worked at Johns Hopkins and Virginia Tech!

I have to say wholeheartedly that the Volgeneau School of Engineering at GMU has TRIED to concoct a challenging graduate Statistics program—and has FAILED MISERABLY! The professors are unhelpful to an extreme. In my honest opinion, I have had only two of six professors there, who should EVER be allowed in a classroom. The vast majority are a detriment to society, much less to a learning environment.

Students in my program, for the most part, agree that we have all spent huge sums of money to be disheartened and made to feel stupid at every opportunity. The vast majority of us are talented and hard-working, with strong mathematical and engineering backgrounds, and should be easy to teach. The fact that the vast majority of us ALSO can spend 15 weeks in a class, and have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what we might have learned—is a huge red flag.

Avoid this MS in Statistics program AT ALL COSTS!

questionI'm looking into the M.S. in stats program right now. Could you let me know a little more about your experience with the program and why it was so negative?
