Awesome. I have yet to have significant time series exposure. I hope to take a class on time series modeling at some point.

Time Series is a tough subject---but I'm sure that you'll be "ahead of the class", Richie. :)

Ah, didn't know you were planning to focus on time series... My thesis research will be with time series data! Maybe we can have some interesting talks about cosinor and spectral analysis and such in the future :D

I am a Ph.D. student in Educational Evaluation and Research. My experience has been in more of an applied sense. I started graduate training in School Psychology many years ago and am now approaching my last semester of classes before exams.

I feel a little behind the curve here as I have been learning about actual statistics for a short time and feel a little nervous about how little I know, especially compared to my student peers on this site!

My wife and I have 3 month old identical twin girls, so it's all I can do to make sure they are taken care of and self-direct my own education to compensate for that which I have not been exposed to in school, so bear with me.

Oh, and my interest is in nonparametric statistics and Monte Carlo methods.

I am home schooling myself in statistics and put in at least 20 hours a week on the books.
I figure that in about 18 to 24 months I will have taught myself enough so that I can get a job and make some money.
I love statistics.

Are you learning any software along with that? (R, SAS, STATA, ...)?

I just finished college, and hoping to get into graduate school. Concerns include finances and missing my own convocation.

I hope that by educating myself in statistics, it would help in my future dabbling in research.

Do sql queries and analyze data. I spent most of my life in various programs. My fourth graduate degree (when all else fail go back to school...).

Don't assume because you know statistics a job is sure. My observation is that jobs for such are not all that common. Knowing software and both sql and excel is central to what data analyst at most organizations do. Very rarely will you have the luxury of having people hand you the data for you to analyze (this was one of most cherished - and wrong- assumptions about data analysis).

You generate your own data in the real world.
