Nontraditional Applicants for Biostatistics or Statistics FALL 2024

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I am posting this to get opinion on how competitive I will be for PhD in Biostatistics/Statistics program. I would greatly appreciate if you can help me getting ideas on the school range I should apply. Below is my profile.

  • Undergraduate: Animal Science (3.88 out of 4.0 GPA) - Asia
  • Master: Nutrition (working in animal nutrition field) (3.72 out of 4.00 GPA) - Big 10 School

I took all the prerequisites + STAT classes while I was in my master program. Following are the details:

  1. Math Dept: Calc 1 (A), Calc 2 (A), Linear Algebra (A-), Calc 3 (B), Proof Writing (B-), Real Analysis (B)
  2. Stat Dept: Data Science - Freshmen level (A), Stat and Prob 1 (A-), Modelling I (A-), Modelling II (A-), Stat Programming in R (A), Advanced Data Analysis in SAS (B), Bioinformatics - Grad level (A+)
  3. Misc:  Applied Stat Method - Agriculture Department (A), Intro to Epidemiology (A)

I took those classes in about 1.5 years. At the moment, I am more heavily leaning to Biostatistics programs as I really want to use my biological knowledge. However, I am also wondering if I also should apply to Statistics programs cause some of them have Biostatistics option/focus once enrolled.
