In addition to regular program requirements, because Data Science has a strong analytic math/statistics emphasis, students interested in this track should indicate their interest as part of their application.
To be accepted to the Data Science area, students should ideally have a GRE quantitative score in the 70th percentile (158) or above. Students without a GRE will be considered if their grades and math background are sufficiently strong.
Applicants must also have sufficient mathematics courses on their transcript, including at a minimum, calculus and probability, and ideally also linear algebra and statistics.
