Goodwillhunting2 Posted July 15, 2018 Share Posted July 15, 2018 (edited) Yes, I’m sure everyone is sick of seeing these posts by now, but I really am in need of some insight for my biostats application. (Would like to go for my PhD) Undergrad institution: Mid sized state university Undergrad GPA: 3.87 (math gpa:3.85, stats gpa: 3.96) Majors: Applied math, statistics GRE: Haven’t taken yetMath/stat courses: Calc 1-3, honors linear algebra, 2 semesters of theoretical 1-variable calculus, numerical analysis, numerical linear algebra, differential equations, vector analysis, mathematical bio, 2 semesters of probability, 2 semesters of math stats, stochastic processes, data science, categorical analysis, stat packages Other relevant courses: bio 1-2, chem 1-2, computational biology, engineering analysis (matlab, bash scripting), physics 1 Letters of Recommendation: 2 from professors I do research with, 1 with professor I know well Research Experience: -i work during the year as a research assistant in my university’s biostats department -REU (computational science, using statistical genetics) -SIBS Teaching Experience: - TA for math department -tutor at math assistance center -mentored high school student and incoming freshmen in the honors college Programming: - R (advanced) -matlab (proficient) -python (profiecient) -sas (beginner) Research Interests: Statistical genetics, comp bio, causal inference Applying: ???? I have heard Michigan and Harvard have very strong statistical genetics programs, but I am thinking those are very much a reach, although it would be amazing to go to one of these schools. I would like to go for my PhD, although if I can find funding I would be willing to do masters before going on to get my PhD. Any insight is appreciated!

cyberwulf Posted July 16, 2018 Share Posted July 16, 2018 From your profile, I think applying to Michigan and other similarly ranked biostat programs is very reasonable. Goodwillhunting2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
