biostat_applicant Posted September 20, 2013 Share Posted September 20, 2013 (edited) Hi everyone, I was hoping you guys could look over my profile and suggest some schools to apply to. School: US, Top 20 department statistics. Should have my MS by the end of this year. I'm in the PhD program, but I'm transferring for personal reasons (trying to move closer to my wife; due to her work, I'm a bit geographically limited in the programs I'm considering). GPA: 3.89. Currently working on a CRAN package. Here are my results from the first year grad classes: Stat Theory I and II (Hogg and Craig / Casella And Berger level): A- Stat Methods I and II: A Introduction to Computing (mini course): A Computational Statistics: A Computational Statistics reading course: Pass Data Structures (undergrad, summer course for fun): A Undergrad: US State School, GPA: 3.93 in math/stat/compsci courses, I transferred schools so I don't quite know the overall GPA. Here's a list of the math courses I took along with grade. Calc II: A Calc III: B Calc IV: A Lin. Alg: A+ ODE: A+ Probability I: A+ Probability II: A+ Numerical Analysis I: A+ Numerical Analysis II: A+ Math Stat: A Real analysis: A Abstract Algebra: A+ Advanced Calc I: A+ Advanced Calc II: B (I got accepted to my current program during this semester and got distracted with getting ready to move etc.) Pattern Recognition (grad, CS): A Graduate Reading course (Advanced linear algebra): pass GRE: About 2 years old, 790 Math, 650 Verbal, 5.5 writing. LOR: Not sure yet. Potential Schools: U Berkeley (Biostat), U Washington (Biostat), UC Davis (Stat), UCLA (Stat). So what do you think my chances are at those schools? I'm interested in computing, machine learning/data mining and bioinformatics. I'm trying to focus on the West Coast, due to my wife's work. She said she's willing to entertain moving to the east coast, but I'd primarily focus on the west coast for now. Unfortunately, many of the UC schools you can only apply to one of their programs, so I can't apply for both stat and biostat. Does anyone know of any major stat/biostat/bioinformatics programs that I've missed on the west coast? Or suggest more schools in general?
