P-value and statistics problem?
I have this Homework problem that I have the answer to But when I work the problem I get a different answer. perhaps I am missing a step along the way. Medical tests were conducted to learn about drug resistant tuberculosis. Of 142 cases tested in Bhopal, nine were found to be drug resistant. Of 268 cases tested in Jabalpur, five were found to be drug resistant. Do these data suggest a statistically significant difference between the proportions of drug resistant cases in the two cities? Test the hypothesis at 0.02 level of significance. What is the p value and what is your conclusion? (Ans: 0.0174; Reject H0) How do they get this P-value?
Will I get accepted into Texas A&M college station to major in bio or biomedical sciences with 1,200 on my SAT and a 3.6 GPA out of 5.0, and I have taken 9 AP classes throughout high school?
I understand the doubt you feel. Anything is possible if you have faith. Put your best effort into your essays. Exude passion for the degree and school and have faith the right school will select you for admission. Wherever you go, make the most of it. You will only truly know the answer after the admissions committee sends their decisions.To be more direct to your question…Statistically, Texas A&M college station has an acceptance rate of 67% so you have better odds of getting in than not. Apply to multiple schools and your chances of admission increase even more.
Will I still be able to go to a good college with Bs freshman year?
You are guaranteed to be able to attend UT-Austin if you are a Texan in the top 10% of your high school class. UT doesn't publish GPA data but their test scores are similar to Cal Poly, whose students average 3.88 unweighted (4.0). If you're not a Texan, or not in the top 10% of your graduating class at a Texas high school, you would do well to not only focus on your GPA but also on yourself. What do you have to offer a college other than your grades? You're too young to worry about test scores yet (although I would encourage you to take the PSAT in October as practice for the "real" one junior year). Explore some extracurriculars. Get involved in your community outside of school. Take time to figure out what you want from life.Keep your mind open. Don't spend this four years chasing acceptance at one particular college. It may turn out that UT is not the best fit school for you. You might want to go to SMU or UT-Dallas, or even somewhere outside of Texas. Whatever you decide two years from now, know that you will be a very different person then than you are today, so don't bet everything you have on still wanting the same college experience that you want now.
Is it hard to find a job in Austin, Texas?
I think Glenn is correct. It's not hard to find 'a job', but it may be difficult to find the job you want. There are some really smart people moving to Austin, all of whom are looking for the same thing you are! In addition to the people moving here, there are some really smart people graduating from UT and staying here - they're looking for jobs too. Depending on your age and experience, you may have a leg up on the new grads. I think with persistence, active networking and constantly trying to improve and update your skills, you'll be just fine. Daniel is also correct in saying that Austin's economy is still growing. That growth is generating more business transactions, more businesses and startups and more jobs.
What states have the worst thunderstorms?
ALL states have thunderstorms to some degree. If you don't like thunderstorms then you definitely need to stay away from any state where the moist air fronts from the Gulf of Mexico meets the cold air fronts from Canada - and that is just about anywhere East of the Rocky Mountains! From my experience, the place that has the fewest thunderstorms would be Southern California. Storms do happen on occasion, but nothing like those elsewhere in the country and not as severe. The farther south you go, the fewer storms there are. San Diego, having the least amount of rain in the state, with the exception of the deserts, would be the place to avoid thunderstorms.
What are the best places to study at the The University of Texas at Austin?
The 17 Libraries, Centers, and Museums. I personally enjoy the architecture and life sciences libraries because of their "old-fashioned", Harry-Potter-like feel. Miscellaneous places:Flawn Academic Center - plenty of different studying setups, though it's normally crowded. Robert Lee Moore building - for when I want to use chalkboards, the rooms on the 5,6,7 are normally not locked after hours.Norman Hackerman - it's new (as of now), all of the furnitures are nice and comfortable. The building is closed after 6 unless you have accessed. Welch - the main hallway has plenty of tables and outlets.Gates Dell Complex - UT Computer Science students call this place home. It's restricted to CS students after hours however.
