  1. Hi everyone, I'm a recent B.S. graduate in desperate need of advice for biostatistics graduate school; I would liked to apply this fall (2020) to PhD/ MS. I'm considering biostatistics, as opposed to statistics, because I like how it has a substantive topic (e.g. biology, genetics, public health), that I really desired from my undergrad. I liked theory, but I was disappointed without a constant substantive topic of application. I'm open to both PhD and MS, but for PhD I'm hesitant since I am unsure of whether I'll like the bio/public health area, but its the best options for my goal: research
  2. Howdy, I am a rising senior and am planning to apply for PhD and masters programs in Biostatistics for Fall 2021. However, I currently do not know where I stand and whether the schools/programs I have chosen are realistic. I would love to go straight into a PhD program, but I am unsure of if this is feasible and would love feedback! Undergraduate Institution: Top 60 LACs Majors: Biomathematics Minor: Urban and Community Health, Music GPA: 3.80/4.0 Major GPA: 3.76/4.0 Type of Student: Domestic White Male Courses taken: Math: Math Modeling w
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. What do you guys think? The programs are close in terms of ranking. Both offered full fund. I had no connection with a specific professor in both places, because I wanted to keep my options open. I would appreciate your input on this.
  6. Undergrad institution: big U.S. state school with decent math department Majors: Double Degree with BS in Math and BA in Econ GPA: 4.0 / 4.0 (both major and overall) Type of student: International (White male) Courses taken: Math: Basic: Calc I - III (A/A/A), Linear Algebra (A), Ordinary Differential Equations (A) Advanced: Abstract Linear Algebra (A), Abstract Algebra I - II (A/A), Mathematical Analysis I - II (A/A), Numerical Analysis (A), Intro to Partial Differential Equations (A), General Topology (A) Stats: Probability and Statistics (A),
  7. I received offers from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at U of T, Waterloo and Mcgill for their MSc Biostatistics programs. There does not appear to be much information out there on biostatistic programs in Canada. Does anyone have any insight on the pros and cons of these three programs? How are they viewed in the biostatistics field? I am not completely decided on a a PhD yet.
  8. Hello everyone, I am a senior who will be applying to PhD programs in biostatistics. I have posted here before about statistics, but my list of schools was very different and after looking into biostatistics programs at the suggestion of a couple people here, I found that they actually do research which I find very interesting. Undergraduate Institution: Top 20 among public universities; big, well-known state school; top 20 mathematics department. Majors: Pure mathematics Minor: Computer Science GPA: 3.73/4.0 Major GPA: 3.83/4.0 Type of Student: Domestic Asia
  9. 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. Undergrad Institution: TOP 5 Local University Major: Math GPA: 97% Grad Institution: TOP 2 University in Jordan Degree: MS in Math, (Thesis in statist
  10. Hi everybody, I'm currently a senior pursuing biostatistics PhD programs. Now, I'm in a unique situation. I am currently only sixteen years old, and will be by the time I graduate - 17 by Fall 2020. I am part of a program at a university that has allowed me to skip high school (no diploma) and obtain my bachelor's degree right away. I currently don't know whether I should be playing this to my advantage, or if it will be detrimental in my application. Undergraduate Institution: Unranked small private institution Majors: Mathematics, Biochemistry (do
  11. I am very interested in pursuing biostatistics PhD for this coming year (2020). I realize I have a low gpa score but have a strong research record/work experience to compensate. I would really appreciate honest feedback about my chances for graduate school this coming year given that I can get very strong LORs. Undergrad Institution: Top 10 LAC Major: Computer Science and Statistics GPA: 3.56 Student: Domestic POC, female Courses: Intro to Stat Modeling (A-), Intro Computer Science I (B+), Multivariable Calculus (A-), Intermediate Statistics (A-), Intro Computer Scie
  12. Hello! Could you please evaluate my profile? I'm going to apply for fall 2020 MS Biostatistics. I have MPH from Russian University with GPA 3.6 GRE(unofficial scores): Q:160 /V 157 (Should I retake it?) TOEFL 108 Math Background: At the moment of application I will have only Calculus 1,2 (A). I'm going to get Linear Algebra also Research background: I focused primarily in Epidemiology field (worked on spread of resistance bacteria and resistance genes). I have 4 publications, one of them in Genome Announcements journal. What do you think my chanc
  13. Hi all, With schools starting to open up their applications in the next 2-3 months, I've been wondering what schools I should aiming for. I want to get into healthcare using math/stats so most of the programs I was considering are bio-statistics or operations research with a focus on health systems. I have a pretty good academic profile but some concerns I have are that 1) my undergrad has zero prestige; 2) my GRE score seems a little low for the top programs; 3) I have no direct healthcare experience (currently work in unrelated economic research). Below are my stats but I'm not sur
  14. Hello, everyone! I'm a rising senior thay has just recently made the decision to pursue a MS in biostatistics rather than the original path I've been working at for the past couple years (PhD in Clinical Psychology). Clearly, this is a major shift in my plans so I have been attempting to familiarize myself with the field and what credentials I'll need in order to be admitted into such a program. The underlying question of this post: do I even have a chance of admission for Fall 2019 or I should apply for the following year? Undergraduate Institution: Large Public Universit
  15. Hello everyone, I transferred from one mediocre college in China to Cornell last year and switched my major from Biology into Statistics. I am now a rising senior and not sure about if my profile is strong enough to apply for PhD/MA programs in Biostatistics and /or Statistics in 2020 fall. I didn't know before math capacity is one of the most important factors to be considered in application so the math courses I took was very limited. My advisor gave me some positive feedback and encouraged me to apply for some statistics PhD programs but I am still worried about my background. Und
  16. Undergrad Institution: Private liberal arts university in Texas Major(s): Biology GPA: 3.37 Type of Student: Domestic, URM, Female GRE General Test: Have not taken yet Programs Applying: Masters in Statistics or Biostatistics Research Experience: Led my own research study on vertebrate reproductive physiology, never published but data collected has been used on several published papers. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: 3 grants awarded from three different academic societies, presented at 11 conferences (2 awards), published in an undergraduate research journal (JSOUR
  17. I will be applying to master's programs (NOT PhD) this upcoming cycle, and I would like to study/research causal inference. I've noticed that this topic seems to be more commonly found in biostatistics departments than a "plain" statistics department. However, I'm not that interested in working with biomedical/genomic/cancer data. It's certainly not a deal breaker, but I do not want to silo myself to only those problems. So, is it still worth applying to biostatistics programs even though I'm more interested in the statistics/math than health/life sciences? Or should i stay away from them
  18. Hi! I was wondering if there was anyone who completed or is currently attending Northwestern in the MS Biostatistics program? I am leaning towards attending this school but also can't really find any information from students about the program. I hope to work in pharma after graduation or something similar to that - I was just worried since the classes seem to point more towards clinical research. thank you!
  19. Hello guys, I was fortunate to receive offers from Johns Hopkins PhD in Biostatistics and Columbia PhD in Statistics. May I have some sincere opinions on school choices? At this stage, I'm open to both industry and academia opportunities, maybe leaning towards academia. Regarding research interests, again I'm open. My slight concern is that biostatistics may be a bit narrow to land a job? I'm really not sure about this. Thank you very much!
  20. Hi everyone, I have applied to the following schools. 1) OSU (PhD Biostat) 2) MSU (Ph.D. Stat) 3) Kentucky (Ph.D. Stat) 4) Dallas (Ph.D. Stat) How many of you heard back from these schools about funding? Thank You.
  21. Hi everyone! I have been admitted to the Biostat MS program at Hopkins and Yale. My goal is to pursue a PhD in Biostat after MS and eventually go into industry. I don't have a strong math background (took calculus, linear algebra, numerical analysis, prob, stats, and a few applied stats courses in undergrad) so I hope to take a few math courses during MS. I'm leaning towards JHU for many reasons (tier1 in biostat of course), but Yale is such a prestigious school (despite its lower rank in biostat) that I'd like to hear your thoughts about its biostat program. These are
  22. I've been accepted to UTHealth for a PhD in biostatistics and UMD for PhD in mathematical statistics. Does anyone have any experience with or knowledge about these 2 programs that could push me one way or another? Thank you so much!
  23. Hi, Thought I'd start this topic for 2018 fall applicants specifically for Public Health. I realise there is a general one for all applicants, but thought it might be useful to have one for just a Public Health field (in the most broad sense). I apologise if this post is redundant. I just wanted comments on whether my choice of universities were too strong. Although these were the only programmes which matched my interests. Feel free to comment/share your experience so far. Undergrad Institution: Imperial College London, UK (Top for science in UK)Major(s): Biom
  24. Hello All ! I'm an international student who just finished a Master's degree in Biostatistics. I was admitted to the UNC Chapel Hill Biostats program and am waiting to hear about financial aiding. According to posts here from previous years, I have noticed that some students did not hear back about the funding even until late March. I was wondering if this is the case, and also if you know any previous students or accepted students who declined have been offered their funding at some point before accepting the offer. I am so glad and thankful to be admitted, but for
  25. I just got an email from Johns Hopkins asking when I am available for a phone interview. Has anyone done this interview yet? What kinds of questions do they ask? What should I do to prepare? Interview's make me nervous so any input would be greatly appreciated.
