"Duke provided me many opportunities to attend conferences, network with other statisticians, and prepare me for my professional career. I appreciated the education in statistical thinking I got at Duke."
"Attend lots of conferences. Develop relationships with students in the program and especially with students and other outside of the Statistical Science program and outside of Duke. Think about what you want to do with your degree after graduation WELL BEFORE you graduate. Thinking about and identifying your goals early in your academic career will help you use the tremendous resources of Duke to achieve your goals."
