21andstressed Posted November 30, 2021 Share Posted November 30, 2021 (edited) Hello everyone! I'm applying to M.S. in Biostatistics programs in the United States for Fall 2022. I was wondering how strong my profile is to be admitted to these programs. This is my first post on Grad Cafe so I apologize if I'm doing something wrong.

Skills: Proficient in R, use it in a lot in my Stats courses and my current research Letters of Recommendation: One from mathematics professor, one from PI at my research lab, and one from the undergraduate program director for neuroscience at UC. PI's recommendation expected to be strong, the other two will be good at the very least. Schools I'm considering applying to: University of Michigan, Columbia, Brown, UC Davis, University of Minnesota, Case Western, Emory, UMass Amherst, GWU, BU and USC.

cyberwulf Posted December 6, 2021 Share Posted December 6, 2021 I predict you're going to get in everywhere for a Masters. You would likely be competitive for PhD admission at most of the places on your list. 21andstressed 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
