A few questions on Statistics PHD

  1. Jun 18, 2010 #1
    1. Some programs put time to completion at 4-5 years. Is it thus easier to graduate compared to other disciplines?

    2. Is it time inefficient to do an MS stats one place and phd at another? Does this involve more courses than a direct phd after BS?

    3. Is it more common to apply w/ MS or BS? How competitive is admissions?

    4. What's the diff between stats and biostats phds? Is biostat phd like an applied stat program restricted to biology?

    5. Is stats phd less theoretical than applied math phd?
