  1. Hi all! I'm in the process of applying for graduate schools (in both the US and Canada) and was hoping for realistic feedback so that I can manage my expectations. I think I'm a relatively strong applicant but a good reality check can always be helpful! Undergrad Institution: McGill University Undergrad Major: BSc Joint Biology and Mathematics GPA: 3.80 Relevant Courses: Math: Calc I (A), Calc II (A), Calc III (B+), Linear Algebra (A), Analysis I (A-) and II (A), differential equations (A), probability (B+), statistics (with R) (B+), stochastics (S/U'd), linear regress
  2. Hi I am a 3rd year life sciences major, and am hoping to apply to the UofT biostatistics program next year. My grades are decent (high 80 average), I have an okay background in math as I am also a math minor (I have completed all of the math course requirements for the MSC program), and I know python and some R. However, I do not have any relevant work or research experience. With COVID the one internship I had lined up fell through and it has been really tough to find other ones. I was just wondering how relevant relevant work/research experience is for admission for this particular p
  3. Fully funded PhD Rice Statistics program (option to do joint Biostatistics training program with MD Anderson and Baylor College of Medicine) vs MS UPenn Biostatistics. UPenn is my dream school and I just don't want to leave the north east. MS and PhD students at UPenn share the same course work and MS can take qual exam. However, a spot in MS UPenn does not guarantee me an acceptance to PhD. I'm international. Should I follow my heart?
  4. Thanks for reading this. I will be attending a Top 3 biostat master program next fall, and I want to seek for advice on how to become a competitive applicant for phd program in stat/biostat 2 years later, especially as an international student. FYI, I graduated from a top flagship state university with a major in statistics&computer science. I also have a minor in math but most math course I took are not proof-based and I only took one elementary analysis class (A+ grade). I also have done several research projects but do not have any publications. Specifically, I want to know gi
  5. Hi all!! I am seeking suggestions on where to go for the master program. I was admitted by MS in biostatistics in UW-Seattle (Capstone track) and Umichigan, but still cannot make a decision by far and I am now getting worried since 4.15 is approaching. My brief background: double major in genetics and statistics (but I took much more courses in genetics). I applied for MS program in order to get more rigorous theoretical training in mathematics and statistics, and my current thought is to continue in a PhD program after graduation if possible. My current thoughts about two schoo
  6. Hey everyone. I was admitted to Duke's Master of Biostatistics program with a $20k/year scholarship. I would like to know what people think about this program if they have any experience with it. I'm pretty compelled to go from a financial and academic standpoint, with the only better pending offers coming from Michigan, UNC, and UMN. However, I don't know how likely it is for these schools to give funding to MS students. Let me know what you think. Thanks!
  7. Hello, I am an international student applying for Stat and Biostat PhD programs. Today I got an email inviting me to an interview for the Biostat and Bioinfo PhD program at Duke and they are asking if I have some faculty I would like to invite as interviewers. How would you answer this, or, how DID you answer for this?
  8. Hi there! I am hoping to get some advice regarding where I stand as an applicant for a MS in Biostats. I graduated a few years ago with a BA in Biology and Environmental Studies with a 3.52 GPA. Since then, I have been working to meet the prerequisites for graduate programs by taking Intro to Stats (though I did take a Biostats course in college too) and all three Calculus courses. So far, I earned A's in all of them. I will be starting Linear Algebra this semester as well. I have also been working as a lab specialist in the medical field for the past year in hopes that some research expe
  9. Hey guys! I am currently a masters student in Biostatistics and will be applying to Biostatistics PhD programs for Fall 2021 admission. I was wondering if you could help me choose a range of school or give me any adivice about my current list. I would like to apply to programs within top 30 range in both US and Canada, but I am not sure if that is unrealistic or not. I would be appreciated if anyone can give me some helpful advice.

  10. Hey everyone, I would appreciate a rundown of my profile and would love some advice/tips. Thanks. I'm entering from a mostly unrelated field. Undergrad Institution: Large State School Major(s): Criminal Justice/Criminology Minor(s): Mathematics (Post-bacc mostly) GPA: 3.5 (4.0 since start of Junior year) Type of Student: DWM, LGBT but I probably won't be mentioning that in my application.

  11. Major: BS Mathematics and BS International Business 2013 GPA: 3.25 Math classes mostly Bs. Gre Q: 160 - 73rd V: 158 - 80th AW: 4.5 - 81st Experience: I have 7 years analyst work, 2 of them as a statistical analyst using SPSS, and 4 years writing automation scripts and programming with python. I would say my academics are weak, but passing exclusion. I'm hoping my experience can shoulder some weight. Assuming I apply to a broad range of schools, will I be considered?
  12. Hello all! I'm interested in applying for an MS in Biostatistics (Fall 2021) but am having trouble finding admissions data so I was wondering what you all thought about my application profile and how much of a chance I stood at the schools I'm interested in. Here's my profile: Undergrad Institution: The College of William and Mary Undergrad Major: B.S. Self-designed major called Epidemiology & Biostatistics GPA: 3.80 Relevant Courses: Math: Calc I and II, Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, Prob. and Stat. for Scientist, Statistical Data Analysis Biology
  13. Hello. I've been fortunate to be accepted into the master's program in biostatistics at both Brown and at UWashington-Seattle. I was wondering if any of you have any thoughts or experience with these programs. They are both great schools, so I don't the quality of education at either place but I was more curious about the opportunities during/after the program and about the biostatistics communities at these schools. The Washington program costs about $10,000 less and is only a 1.5 years, while Brown is a 2 year program. But I like the fact that Brown is small and the Ivy name is rea
  14. Hello! I got accepted into Columbia and UNC's MS biostatistic programs and I need some help in making my decision! So, as of right now, I'm not really considering pursuing for a PhD after the master program. But I've heard that getting a PhD in biostatistics really gives you advantages in the job market that you kinda have to have a PhD to get a job that pays well (although this applies to all fields I guess), so if anyone knows about this, please help! My main concern is about the schools themselves. For Columbia, I've heard that the MS program is easy and that they give a lo
  15. 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
  16. I am an International student completing Master's in an US institute. I am applying for Ph.D. programs in Biostatistics for Fall 2020. I have a good GPA, industrial and research experience and strong LORs. My main concern is my low GRE score and that I don't have any publications. I will be publishing my Master's thesis but not before I complete the applications. Undergrad Institution: International, one of the top universities, good reputation Major: Statistics GPA: 72% (converted using WES - 3.58 GPA) Grad Institution: Top 100 in USA Degree: MS. Applie
  17. 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!

  19. Hi everyone, I hope you're doing well! So I am a current senior undergrad, applying for PhD programs for Biostatistics for next fall. I was very excited to have been accepted to UNC's Department of Biostatistics, with a full package of 5 years of funding! I wasn't able to get into Michigan's PhD program, but was offered a funded fast-track masters (and I heard that usually any student that wants to move onto the PhD is able to do so). I am leaning toward Michigan because my current interest lies in Statistical Genetics (and I have heard Michigan's statistical genetics program
