VMM2712 Posted May 13, 2019 Share Posted May 13, 2019 (edited) Undergrad Institution: Private liberal arts university in TexasMajor(s): BiologyGPA: 3.37 Type of Student: Domestic, URM, FemaleGRE 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 (JSOURCE). Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Worked in a hospital pathology lab for 3 years after graduation because I thought I wanted to be a physician (hated it) and am now working in accounting and business. Do some light analysis using Power BI and excel for company. Letters of Recommendation: Going to ask my former Statistics prof who is also the dean of department, my former research adviser and one of the pathologists I worked with at hospital. Math/Statistics Grades: Calculus (B) Stats (B+). Plan on taking remaining pre-reqs. Have already signed up for Calc II and intro to programming. Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: Do a lot of volunteering. Am teaching my self to code leading up to applying. Concerns!- I am new to this field and want to know if I am a good candidate (since my GPA is not awesome) before I totally invest myself in taking all the remaining math prerequisites I need to apply. I have not idea where to find good applicant acceptance stats and have no idea what schools would be a good fit for me. Also, will taking the following courses be sufficient to apply (Calc II, Calc III, linear algebra and intro to programming)? I took a lot of chemistry and physics in college so I think I have a good math foundation. If I transition into working as a business analyst will this be helpful/ look good on application?
