  1. Hi Geococcyx, Thank you for your response. With respect to research at Berkeley, I garnered the following from their page: "In extremely rare cases, a thesis option may be considered by the MA Chair. Typically, this will be when either the option has been offered to the student at the time of admission, or if the student arrives with substantial progress in research in an area of interest to our faculty." (https://statistics.berkeley.edu/programs/graduate/masters). I was not offered the opportunity to pursue a thesis, however. With respect to everything you mentioned...I agree! Ou
  2. Goals/Interests: Econometrician/Biostatistician, or a Statistician/Data Scientist with domain/research focus in the biotech venture capital industry.
