  1. Accepted to Brown for MSc in Biostatistics.Offered 15% scholarship.Most likely,I will attend with the loan.
  2. Just rejected from CMU.Anyone heard from Virginia Tech?
  3. I applied there as well. Haven't heard anything yet. In fact, I haven't heard anything from all the colleges I applied. Is this a real bad situation?
  4. I haven't heard anything from Brown yet. It seems I can safely assume I am rejected.
  5. Did Brown send out its decision to biostat applicants?
  6. Thank you so much for the comprehensive response.Though you pointed me as a strong candidate, I feel the other way and think that I have very low chance for top 50 institutions because of the stiff competition from other international counterparts like Chinese,Korean,Indians. I have mentioned about track record of my institution in another comment.Those results encourage me to apply top schools though I get discouraged sometimes. I will definitely apply to the universities you suggested.Masters programs are costly and out of my budget ,however, I will try to consider them. My research interest area is applied field.Could you suggest some hot applied research areas from the topics I mentioned above in "Research Interests" or know any other you know. Also, what do you think about applying lower ranked but reputed schools like Vandy, Boston U, UT Austin, Northwestern,Rochester,Brown.But going through http://ww2.amstat.org/misc/BiostatsPhD2003-MostRecent.pdf and http://ww2.amstat.org/misc/statsPhD2003-MostRecent.pdf It seems those lower ranked elite schools accepts very few people.
  7. Thanks for the response.definitely I will apply more statistics programs.It would be really great if you could suggest some more universities.
  8. Thank you for the response.Do you have some universities in mind that you encourage me to apply?
  9. Thank you for the reply.My school is nationally unranked as per US news report and falls around (500-600) in Forbes ranking.Regarding track records, for PhD classes starting fall 2018, we had one guy who got admitted to UNC Chapel Hill for biostatistics, however, he had perfect GRE scores and overall incredible profile, another math major got into University of South California for quantitative psychology and so far I know another friend got into Baylor for mathematics but everyone were American. I will take your suggestions and apply broadly.I am pretty worried about my recommendation from statistics professor.He is an international guy and doesn't know stuffs like REU and all.I had to explain him about Putnam competition I participated, but he knows me well.Do you think I must include one stat professor's recommendation?Also, unfortunately all my referees are not well known.I will surely apply my REU institution. What universities would you suggest me?
  10. @cyberwulf @bayessays @jmillar @Stat PhD Now Postdoc @GoPackGo89 @statguy123 @Epi5tat @statphd @StatsG0d @mrsplitter @Gauss2017 @Biostat_Assistant_Prof @statfan You all are prominent people in this forum.Please spare some time to read my profile and drop some suggestions.
  11. Undergraduate Institution: Relatively medium sized state university in South, nationally unranked Major: Mathematics Minor: Statistics and Economics Cumulative GPA: 3.95 Major GPA: 3.92 Student Type: International, South Asian GRE General Test: 164Q, 151V, 3.5AW Classes: Calculus I,II,III (A,A,A),Vector Calculus (A),Differential Equation (A) Linear Algebra (B) Intro to Adv. Maths (A),Real Analysis I,II (A,A), Abstract Algebra I (A) ,Discrete Mathematics (A),Numerical Analysis (A) Graph Theory (A) Introductory Statistics(A),Statistical Computation and Analysis(A), Mathematical Statistics I (A)Experimental Design (A),Regression Analysis (A), Econometrics(A),Independent guided study (B):it was a single credit course In progress: Complex Analysis,Topology (Expected A in both) Courses last semester : Mathematical Statistics II &Abstract Algebra II (will talk about this in SOP) Programming Experience: R, C++,(Took a class for both, have very preliminary knowledge) Research Experience: One summer REU at one of the top 5 (USnews) stat PhD University this summer.Worked on applied math project.Produced a paper and submitted to journal for publication but have not heard anything yet. Worked with an oncologist on a paper about "ROLE OF STATE LEVEL AND NATIONAL LEVEL CANCER DATABASES IN LEUKEMIA RESEARCH".Poster presentation was done in a conference in Hawaii. Apart from those, I have worked on some little math projects with my professors and presented them twice at national conference and thrice in university conference.I am in touch with another oncologist who is working on precision medicine, so if everything goes well, I will start working on a paper with him from coming January. Research Interests: I have figured out fields like Clinical Trials Design and Analysis, Precision Medicine, Imaging,High Dimensional Data Analysis,Statistical genetics, Biostatistics theory,Survival Analysis,Environmental and Spatial Statistics in biostatistics.I don't know in depth about any of these. I want to work on applied field.Please suggest me a good one which is less explored. Also, In statistics I have figured out fields like Bayesian Statistics, Multivariate and Time series Analysis, Robust Statistics, Regression Modeling.Please add some more you know and suggest me an applied research field. Recommendations:First one is from my Math Chair and should be a really good one.Second from my statistics professor, do not know how that is going to be but he knows me really well and I have A in all his classes.Third one is from my research advisor at REU.Hope that would be a pretty good one. Awards/Achievement:Nothing much but Calculus competition Winner,Inducted to Pi Mu epsilon honor society,Math Club President. I am planning to apply 15-20 universities.Please suggest me at least 7/8 for both (statistics and biostatistics)
