  1. Thanks for your thoughts. I will surely consider all the factors mentioned. FYI both of the offers I got from McGill and FSU are funded.
  2. Thanks for your reply. Yes I got a full-funded offer from McGill for the PhD program and I also managed supervisors there who work on Bayesian inference. I initially contacted Dr. Moodie but currently she does not have a position for a new student unfortunately. My supervisor at FSU has not been determined yet. In this case, should I only compare these two programs based on the faculty profiles? Again are the biostat programs at FSU and McGill more theoretical or applied? Any suggestion will be very helpful.
  3. Hello everyone, It is a bit late for making decisions but I have been recently admitted in the PhD Biostatistics program at McGill (Canada) and FSU (USA). There are several factors I need to consider before making a decision. I don't have much idea about the FSU biostat program; however, since it is under their Stat department I am assuming this program might be strong. On the other hand the McGill biostat is also good but I don't know how I can compare it with the FSU biostat. My research interests are Bayesian, Causal inference, Longitudinal and Survival analysis. I also have not decide
