    Can confirm. I didn't get an email but the rejection was waiting for me on the site.

    Thanks! I've been on mobile and didn't even see that page. And I did a phone interview with BU in early December and got accepted on January 3rd

    Way to go @AsianSpice that’s awesome! I was wondering what everyone else is doing with their Fall semester grades. Some (biostats) programs, like UNC, explicitly want them; some, like UWash, explicitly don’t want them, but most don’t say either way. If it’s not mentioned are you guys emailing them in or just not bothering?
  6. I agree with Now Postdoc, it's not weird at all. I got one of my recs from a prof I haven't talked to in 3 years.
  7. Thanks y'all! That's really helpful
  8. Undergrad Institution: 4 year state university (Not at all known for biostats or stats) Major(s): Mathematics and Economics Minor(s): Psychology GPA: 3.96 overall, 4.0 Majors Type of Student: Domestic White Male GRE General Test: Q: 169 (97%) V: 168 (98%) W: 4.0 (60%) Math Classes: Calc I: A Calc II: A Calc III: A Diff Eq: A Elementary Lin Algebra: A Lin Algebra: A Applied Stats I: A Time Series Analysis: A Logic & Sets: A Probability Theory*: A Statistical Theory*: A Other Relevant Classes: Intro Biology: A Intro Biology lab: A Intro Psych Honors: A Abnormal Psych: A Intro to Econometrics: A Econometrics*: A Senior Research Honors: A Future Classes: Honors Topics in the American Healthcare Model, Mathematical Analysis*, Multilevel Modeling *grad classes Research Experience: Summer Internship at Health IT Company: worked in public health division doing regressions and data visualization SIBS: Boston University Senior Thesis: Wrote health economics paper with an economics advisor and submitted it to (hopefully) be published as a letter in Health Economics. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Will graduate with University honors, Departmental honors in economics, and award for Most Distinguished Economics Undergraduate. Letters of Recommendation: Very good reference from health economist professor, very good reference from supervisor at Health IT internship, okay reference from well-known Math professor Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Fall of my Junior year I studied abroad at Pantheon-Sorbonne University in Paris in their Masters of Mathematical Finance program. I ended up only taking two classes there, Logic & Sets and Probability Theory, and then an online class from my home university, so I’m not sure if that will help me for going to a prestigious uni or hurt me for taking so few hours. As for programming I’m intermediate in R, Stata, and SAS Programs Applying to: Biostats MS or PhD (Haven’t decided yet) at Johns Hopkins, U Washington, U Michigan, U Minnesota, UNC, Emory, Boston U, and U Texas Health Science Center Do you guys think this is a reasonable list? Except for maybe JHU and U Washington I’m thinking it’s probably reasonable for Masters, although I really have no idea for PhD. Based on other advice I've seen here I know I should probably take more math theory classes. Thanks ahead of time, I really appreciate any feedback you guys may have.
