University of Rochester Open House for Prospective Graduate Students in Biostatistics

Dear Program Director,

I am writing to bring to your attention an event that might be of interest to students in your undergraduate or Master's program. The Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at the University of Rochester is hosting an Open House for prospective graduate students on Saturday, November 1, 2014. The global demand for professionals and academics with advanced training in the statistical sciences is extremely strong and continues to grow. This event will provide students potentially interested in graduate study in biostatistics and statistics with an opportunity to learn about our programs, to meet with current students, faculty, and program alumni, and to gain some perspective on the many career opportunities this exciting field has to offer.

I would be most grateful if you could please post the attached announcement and inform your colleagues and potentially interested students of this opportunity. For more information, students may contact our Graduate Coordinator, Cheryl Bliss-Clark at URBiostat@bst.rochester.edu <mailto:URBiostat@bst.rochester.edu> or 585-275-6684, or visit our website, http://www.urmc.rochester.edu/biostat/events/prospective-student-open-house/open-house-2014.cfm.

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

COURSE ENROLLMENT
In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
1. Students who selected courses but something went wrong because of: enrollment capacity in a course **a time conflict **an academic enrolment block was applied after course selectiondropping or failing a course after course selection** Please re…
