SUMMARY

Choosing to study Bioinformatics is a valuable choice and naturally a mandatory first step for students endeavoring to enter a career as a bioinformatics scientist, a bioinformatics engineer, or a bioinformatics analyst. In fact, bioinformatics is an uncommon degree coming in at the 323rd most popular major. Last year, there were 295 bioinformatics degrees conferred. In-state tuition for bioinformatics at private universities is, on average, 2 times more pricey than their public counterparts.

With only 44 colleges having programs for bioinformatics there could be limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you are looking to surround yourself with other bioinformatics students, consider colleges in California which have the most undergraduates admitted to bioinformatics annually. less precisely, the best region to study bioinformatics is in the Mid East region with University of Maryland-Baltimore County, CUNY New York City College of Technology, and University of Pittsburgh-Pittsburgh Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to study bioinformatics is the California Collegiate Athletic Association with California State University-San Bernardino representing the conference. That said, our belief is that the best university for bioinformatics is University of California-San Diego. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The overall best school is not necessarily the 'best' school for you. There might be tons more perspectives to think about when deciding on institution. Stuff like campus amenities, transportation services, and food would definitely alter your feelings on where to go to college. Here at Authority, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which bioinformatics school has the best campus, the answer is Arizona State University-Tempe. If, for example, you are primarily interested in which college has the best campus, then we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more to compare every U.S. major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life&nbspand our selection for the university with the best student life for bioinformatics is University of California-San Diego. Are you curious why? Keep reading to discover more about our top selections. Many of our conclusions might shock you.

If price is a significant factor in your decisions, you might be cautious about Loyola University Chicago. Loyola University Chicago&nbspis the most expensive college for bioinformatics, at least for out of state enrollment. We have a list of the most expensive&nbspcolleges that could put the price tag of Loyola University Chicago&nbspinto perspective. You may also be interested to know that bioinformatics is the 189th most expensive degree in the US, with an average expense of $30,700. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for bioinformatics nationally is Illinois with costs at the main school, Loyola University Chicago, of $44,105. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the country for bioinformatics is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for bioinformatics is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790. In better news, the most affordable university for bioinformatics is Brigham Young University-Provo. Authority's comprehensive list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state students can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $12,700 for a degree in bioinformatics. The price swells dramatically to an average of $31,400 for an out-of-state public-school student. On that note, our pick for the college with the best value for bioinformatics: University of California-San Diego. On this page you can find our comprehensive list of the schools we believe to be the best value&nbspin general. Bear in mind, this list is predicated on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for bioinformatics majors differ widely, but two-years after graduation graduates will often earn around $73,300. There is much variation in earnings potential; highest paid earners can make up to $118,700. Even right out of college, the lowest end jobs within the bioinformatics field make $44,900, which could be worse. The top earning graduates for bioinformatics graduated from University of California-San Diego&nbspand if you want to find the schools with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The prevailing diversity of bioinformatics is near the top, coming within the 90th percentile of all programs. The college with the highest composite diversity for bioinformatics is University of California-San Diego&nbspand here you can find our general list for the colleges with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Bioinformatics is only within the 80th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, in the 89th percentile. Asian collegians make up the largest proportion at 37% of scholars studying bioinformatics. Additionally, 60% of undergraduates pursuing a bioinformatics major are men.

The median rating for bioinformatics professors is 3.8 stars, a rating that is 5% lower than the average score across all majors; this is a subpar ranking. If you want the most popular bioinformatics instructor in the nation, take a look at Alan Holyoak from Brigham Young University-Idaho. It might be a shock, but the best rated bioinformatics professors by student are found at Houston Community College. As we including data beyond just rankings it becomes clear that the college with the overall best professors for bioinformatics is University of California-San Diego. One will find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with some of the best examples of professors nationwide.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for bioinformatics is University of California-San Diego. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have a comprehensive list for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you believe that looking at the education process through a lens primarily derived from superlatives might cause problems. We hope you look at some of our other pages on different topics and explore a few of Authority's background articles on essential things to consider as your college search develops.
