Hi, I am currently a Statistics and Economics major in my Junior year at an accredited Big Ten university. I am hoping to go into Biostatistics after I graduate, but am having a lot of trouble finding admission statistics. Though obviously none of this is set in stone, this is an approximation of what my GPA's would look like.

My Expected GPA's consist of:

GPA: 3.298

Statistics GPA: 3.357

Math/Stat GPA: 3.293

Degree GPA: 3.443

College of Natural Science GPA (including Degree GPA): 3.472

Economics GPA: 3.600

GPA of classes excluding Stat, Math, and Econ: 3.115

My Relevent Courses:


Calculus I-III

Differential Equations

Linear Algebra (Proof Emphasis)

Algebra Based Statistics I

Multivariate Probability

Multivariate Statistics

Actuarial Mathematics

Statistical Computing

Econometric I & II

Introduction to Programming

I am currently looking into going into the University of Michigan for either a M.S. in Biostatistics or a Ph.D in Biostatics, or possibly attending Grand Valley State University first to get an M.S. in Biostatistics and then attempt to get into UMich's Ph.D program.

Do I have a good chance of getting into Michigan? I realize there are many variables but any insight would be nice. I don't have any intern experience but I do have volunteer work, tutoring experience, and have passed the Probability Exam P/1 for Actuaries. Any insight is appreciated; average GPA's, GRE's, acceptance rates, ect would be great!
