MS Biostatistics Profile Evaluation


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I know it's quite late to post this evaluation. I just want to make sure my decision is appropriate. Could you please give me some advice so I can adjust my application timely.. I think my math background is not really solid.. I am going to take statistical inference and some other math courses next semester. Should I add some other programs that I have a great possibility to be admitted?
