Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm a math major having taken 1st yr physics, programming, lab electronics, and a EE minor of 4-5 courses on signal processing and linear systems (including couple grad courses). I'm also doing medical imaging research w/ the EE dept this summer. I didn't major in EE b/c I've no interest in MOSFETS and digital design (and I get to graduate a year early w/ my current plans).

How disadvantaged am I applying to EE PHD programs (concentrating on signals related stuff) compared to BSEEs, if at all? Thank you :)

As long as you work in theory/computation groups in signal processing and communications, you should be fine. You'll want recommendations from EE professors you've collaborated with. Applied Mathematics will also help.

PS -- Many statistics departments have people working on statistical signal processing, channel estimation, etc.
