    Hey guys...for the aadsas application I know math is considered other science. Would a Statistics class be considered other science or non-science? Thanks.

    This is definitely covered in the applicant's instruction manual for the AADSAS application. It's probably even under "instructions for this section" when you're in the coursework section of the AADSAS app...

    Statistics is "Other Science"...

    It should fall under other science.

    That's how my stat class was categorized last year. :)

    Hmm... you're right. I looked up the instructions on the actual application and in the ~40 page AADSAS App Instructions booklet (PDF file), and STAT isn't listed under "other science", but I remember reading somewhere that statistics is consider "other science".

    "Math" IS listed under "other science" and anyone would be hard pressed to argue that statistics would not be considered a part of "mathematics".

    Hence, I still believe a stat course would be listed under "other science".
