Biostatistics PhD - Ohio State vs Pittsburgh

Recommended Posts

Now that I've heard from almost everyone (except U Florida), I'd appreciate your opinion on those two programs.

At this point I prefer industry over academia (the teaching part specifically) and this is unlikely to change.


So the rankings say OSU stat is higher than Pitt biostat but that's probably not a good comparison. No ranking for OSU biostat, is it because it's a joint program?

Pitt seems to be bigger than OSU for biostat and have more research collaboration going on, but again because OSU is a joint program I don't really know.

Pitt requires less coursework and less quals.

Climate and cost of living look similar.


Currently I think I prefer OSU because of better funding (for the first year at least) plus I've visited. I was waitlisted for Pitt initially. But I'm having a hard time choosing now... please help.
