Duke Biostatistics Master's Program?

Recommended Posts

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.

Traditionally, UNC/UMich/UMN rarely give funded offers to Masters students (at Michigan, it's only for people who are in the "PhD track"). Duke is definitely a step below those places in terms of prestige, but it's got some good faculty and is located in close proximity to the Research Triangle so is probably a decent bet in terms of landing a good job after you graduate.
