Career - Currently work as a statistician in clinical trials at a top research hospital. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Various math scholarships in undergraduate, Pi Mu Epsilon member Pertinent Activities or Jobs: Undergrad -Led math/stat tutoring department for two years, statistical consultant for a year, TA for Prob Theory and Stat Modeling Letters of Recommendation: 3 profs from my undergrad institution (1 well known, 1 who I did research with, 1 I took several courses with and know they will write a great letter. Math/Statistics Grades: Calc I (A) Honors Calc II (A-) Linear Algebra (A) Real Analysis I (A) Diff Eq. (A) Partial Diff. Eq. (A) Prob Theory (A-) Stat Theory (A) Abstract Algebra I (A-) Data Science I (A) Statistics for Economics (A-) Statistical Modeling (A) Any Miscellaneous Points that Might Help: I'm self-taught in Calc 3/4 and Time Series Analysis I'm interested in applying to biostatistics Ph.D. programs for Fall 2022 to work on clinical trial development/analysis. I currently work as a statistician in clinical trials, after rejecting an offer to study in the MA program in statistics at Columbia. My main concern with my application is that I am self-taught in multivariable calculus. I was hoping to prove my knowledge by pointing to my grades in Partial Differentials and Stat Theory, which both had Calc III as a prerequisite and thoroughly applied the concepts from a traditional undergraduate Calc III course. Is this a good strategy for PhD. admissions, or will I need to pay for a formal course and relearn the content? Also, are the reach schools that I provided too far out of my reach? With no publications, it's hard for me to gauge where I should be applying. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
