  1. Thank you for your insight, it helps a lot. Do you think an MS at a Big Ten Program is out of reach?
  2. I am currently a 2nd year senior from a Big Ten university, getting a dual-bachelor, and I was wondering what my chances were for getting into a Master's program in the ranks of 25-50, 50-100, and 100-200. I have a 3.0 and expect to have around a 3.07 which isn't great, I know, but I have a 3.8 over my last 50 credits. I still have to take the GRE(which I will be taking within the month). Here are my credentials: Majors: Statistics, Mathematics, and Actuarial Mathematics Minor: Economics Relevant Classes: Calculus Sequence, Differential Equations, Theory of Partial DE, Linear Algebra I & II, Abstract Algebra I, Mathematical Analysis I, Interest Theory, Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics, Biostatistics, Actuarial Math I & II, Financial Mathematics, Programming in Python, Statistical Programming, and some Finance, Accounting & Econ Classes. Computer Work: R, SAS, Python, and minimal MiniTab. Other: Tutoring, including for at-risk children, club and IM member. I have also passed the Probability Exam P/1 for actuaries. I would eventually love to prove myself in a Master's program to hopefully advance to a PhD, however I know I need to get into a decent Master's program first. My GPA is lower, but it was from my earlier college years, during a rough family time, and I feel I can prove a lot more than I have thus far. What are my chances of getting that opportunity?
  3. Hello! Will passing the Actuarial Exam P help your chances of getting accepted into Master's Statistics and Biostatistics programs?
  4. Lets say I get a 3.2-3.3 undergraduate GPA. I then go to a mid-level master's program(30th-60th) and get a 3.6-3.8. With a high GRE score (Q: 760+), can you get into a top 20 PhD program? Essentially, can a good GRE and masters work almost erase your undergraduate work? I am currently a Stats/Econ major, but I am looking at many different options and so I was just looking for generalities. Thanks!
  5. Is Cincinnati or Western Michigan very good? I see both are on the rankings but it had "rank not published". A little closer to home but I'm not sure how well of programs they are.
  6. Eventually I'd like to work my way to Michigan's PhD, so whatever I would have to do to get there I would. I don't really have much job experience, just a normal college job, but I've began talking to admissions there, just to get my foot in the door, and I also have a lot of tutoring and volunteer experience. I do not expect to get into a Phd right away, nor do I want to until I've further proven myself, but would like to get into a decent Masters' Program, work hard, and then hopefully get into a good Phd program. My expected Junior/Senior GPA is 3.8, do you think that would help my admissions into an M.S.? And thanks for the information, I appreciate it! Unfortunately UMich has no information on their GPAs and GREs for some reason.
  7. Hi, I am currently a Statistics and Economics major in my Junior year at an accredited Big Ten university. I am hoping to go into Biostatistics after I graduate, but am having a lot of trouble finding admission statistics. Though obviously none of this is set in stone, this is an approximation of what my GPA's would look like. My Expected GPA's consist of: GPA: 3.298 Statistics GPA: 3.357 Math/Stat GPA: 3.293 Degree GPA: 3.443 College of Natural Science GPA (including Degree GPA): 3.472 Economics GPA: 3.600 GPA of classes excluding Stat, Math, and Econ: 3.115 My Relevent Courses: Biostatistics Calculus I-III Differential Equations Linear Algebra (Proof Emphasis) Algebra Based Statistics I Multivariate Probability Multivariate Statistics Actuarial Mathematics Statistical Computing Econometric I & II Introduction to Programming I am currently looking into going into the University of Michigan for either a M.S. in Biostatistics or a Ph.D in Biostatics, or possibly attending Grand Valley State University first to get an M.S. in Biostatistics and then attempt to get into UMich's Ph.D program. Do I have a good chance of getting into Michigan? I realize there are many variables but any insight would be nice. I don't have any intern experience but I do have volunteer work, tutoring experience, and have passed the Probability Exam P/1 for Actuaries. Any insight is appreciated; average GPA's, GRE's, acceptance rates, ect would be great!
