  1. Hello! I'm starting to look at Stat/Biostat PhD programs in 2022 since application for 2021 Fall will be closed soon. And I hope for advice as to what schools I should apply and what I can do to enhance my application while I’m in the industry now.

  2. I'm applying to PhD program in stat/biostat this fall. I have two rec let from professors I did research with. I'm deciding for the 3nd one from the following possibilities. I'd appreciate if someone can offer advice. 1. I'm doing thesis with a professor whom I plan to ask the 3rd letter from. My concern is that the thesis is a continuation from my summer research with one of the two profs I will get the letters from. So I don't know if it lacks diversity. 2. A rec let from Real Analysis prof. I'm doing pretty well in class. But I don't plan to apply to programs with Measure Theory
  3. Hi all, I will be second-year master student this upcoming semester and am really willing to pursue my Phd degree in statistics field. (For stat and biostat, I prefer to biostat). But I really do not know if these school I've already chosen is fit me well. I will really appreciate that if you could give me some advice! Thanks for your input!

  4. Hi all, I am currently considering doing a PhD in biostatistics.

  5. Hi all, I have received fully funded (and relatively comparable in $$$) admission offers to the UNC Biostatistics PhD program, Colorado Biostatistics PhD program, and University of Michigan M.S. program. I'm having a tough time discerning differences between the programs and would appreciate comments on the strengths, weaknesses, and possible reasons to favor each program. I'm currently having a hard time deciding between the three, but I will choose to attend one of the listed programs. I don't necessarily have a particular research interest, but I think my end goal is to get an ind
  6. I am an international female student from Palestine. I am interested in pursuing biostatistics PhD for Fall 2020 in USA. I have a high GPA and I'm the top of my class in both bachelor and master studies, but my research/work experience is not very impressive. I am confident that my LORs are very strong. I would really appreciate your thoughts about my chances in acceptance to graduate schools in the US this coming year.

  7. Hey all! I'm looking for advice on where to apply, and an idea of where I'd get into for Fall 2020. I’m looking for schools that also have a PhD program in case I decide to keep going after Master's. I know my grades are not the highest and my GRE isn’t the best either, but I’m hoping I still have a chance. Thanks for your help!

  9. Hello, I'm an international student studying medicine in a country where med schools are typically undergraudate courses like the UK (2 year premed + 4 year med course). Currently, I'm planning to study biostatistics (especially focus on statistical/population genetics) in grad school but I have little information about it since very few people (almost none) apply to biostat from my department. I double majored mathematics at my premed years: GPA around 3.9/4.0, also took some graduate level math courses (graduate real analysis, mathematical algorithms etc), however, the gpa on
  10. Hi all, Hope everything is well for all of you! Congrats for those who got their invitations and offers! I'm not sure if there's anyone in looking at this post and is at the same stage as me: got nothing but only rejection letters (5/9). I applied for 9 PhD programs and haven't heard from Harvard, Princeton, Stanford and UCB, but I see in the cafe that many people have got their invitations, and the interview dates are reasonably close. (One of the disadvatages I have is that I'm an international student, thus we are considered separately because of funding issue.) As a resu

  14. Hello everyone, I'm here asking for my friend who has been troubling for a long time about how to go. Her boyfriend has decided to go Umich, luckily she also has an admission of MS/PhD of the biostatistics program in Umich but without any financial support. She's now struggling about where to go. She also has offer from JHU biostat PhD with full funding. On consideration of her boyfriend, she's now more inclined to Umich. But she still has several questions. If there is anyone could help, she will be grateful. 1. Do any friend here have any suggestions on where to go? 2.
  15. I got into the MS Biostatistics programs at UT SPH, UIC(University of Illinois at Chicago). Unfortunately, both no funding. I need help deciding which one to choose.

  16. Hello! I am very stuck between Michigan and Emory right now. I know Michigan has a better biostatistics program than Emory. But in terms of location, I like Atlanta way better than Ann Arbor. In addition, I think the coursework (and the Qual) at Michigan might also be much harder than Emory. My plan after graduation is to find a job (Pharma/Tech/Consulting), so will there be a huge difference between these two programs? I know PhD students at Emory can find an outside intern job during the summer. I'm not sure if I could do the same at Michigan. Any comments are very welcomed, like
  17. Hi, I am currently selecting courses for my last semester in college and will apply for 2019 fall biostat MS programs. I need some advice on which to choose from 3 courses: Applied Algebra (grad level), Discrete Mathematics, and Categorical Data Analysis (grad level). I am leaning towards taking Applied Algebra since it's more proof-based and I've learned from this forum that math courses carry more weight than stat courses in the process of application. I still would like to know what you guys think about these 3 courses. Thanks in advance for any advice!
  18. I see that some schools have sent out interview requests for programs i applied to. If i didnt get a request yet, does that mean out?
  19. I've narrowed down my final two choices for a PhD beginning Fall '17 to Johns Hopkins University's Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics (School of Engineering) and Brown University's Department of Biostatistics (School of Public Health). I've been accepted at both. I'm interested in applied statistics (I have work experience in data science and an M.S. already), so biostatistics sounds like a natural fit. I'm curious about the reputation of the Brown program. It seems small but mighty! My concern is that by going to Brown, I'm throwing away the opportunity to rub shoulders wit

  21. I am a Biology major / Statistics minor applying to programs in Statistics and Biostatistics. I received (flat) C's in both Cell Biology and Genetics (and the rest of the Bio grades were not all A's lol)...so I've been concerned lately about how admissions committees will view these. I've heard people say you're wasting your time to apply if you have C's in the undergrad courses directly related to your prospective graduate study. I guess what I'm wondering is... Is Biology considered DIRECTLY related to Biostat in this way? From my perspective, I consider these as somewhat irreleva
  22. Hi guys, Not sure if anyone will be kind enough to respond, but here goes. I'm a California resident, and finances do matter since I'll be taking out loans. I got into a few masters programs: 1. UCLA M.S Biostat 2. Emory M.S Biostat 3. University of Michigan M.S Biostat 4. Brown University M.S Biostat Waitlisted for University of Chicago M.S Statistics I don't think I received any financial aid for any of the programs but Brown is offering me about 25% off my tuition which is roughly $51,000. Anybody have any opinions?
  23. I started undergraduate as a Bio Major. I'm set to graduate with my BS in Biology spring of 2013... However, I really enjoy statistics and I enjoyed my Biostat class more than any other I've taken ( I got an A in it)... My GPA is currently 3.4 and rising (I'm recovering from one bad 2.6 semester my freshman year). I have yet to take the GRE, but plan to do so of course. I'd really like to pursue a career in Biostatistics, unfortunately I've only taken Calc I... Next year I plan on taking Calc II and Linear Algebra (Which seem to be the minimum math requirements for most programs). I'm als
  24. 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.
