ehtsuperstar Posted October 6, 2015 Share Posted October 6, 2015 I'm interested in applying to a masters/PhD in biostatistics/statistics. However, I haven't majored in math and I'm not sure if I'd be a competitive applicant because of this. I'm finishing a biology major from a large state school. I have a math minor and have taken the following classes: calc 1-3, differential equations, linear algebra, calculus-level statistics, probability, introduction to computing (in Matlab) and numerical analysis. I also plan to take mathematical statistics and real analysis before I graduate. I have a 3.8 gpa (4.0 in my math classes) and I got a 167Q and 163V on the main GRE. For the past year, I have worked in a statistical neuroscience lab (using Matlab heavily) and I plan to write a thesis before I graduate.What would my chances be if I applied to a biostatistics or statistics masters/PhD program? Also do you know of any schools that offer funding for just a masters (I'm not sure how competitive I would be for a PhD program). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...

cyberwulf Posted October 6, 2015 Share Posted October 6, 2015 I thought this post was going to be a lot more interesting, i.e., you would be trying to get into a graduate program without a formal Bachelors degree!Though it's hard to judge much from top-line numbers, it sounds like you'd at least be "in the discussion" at some solid PhD programs, and would have no trouble being admitted to most Masters programs. You can PM me if you want to provide more details and get a more "personalized" response. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
