the whole MS vs. PhD thang

Hi everybody!

So, I just finished my first year at UW and I'm coming from this program (biostatistics) where the first year is the same for everyone (course load, preliminary exams, etc.) I'm currently a MS student but now could make the case to switch to PhD.

I'm a little weirded out because there are 5 PhD students for every MS student. Why do you think it is? Does a MS from UW even look good or do they expect you to get a PhD there? Does UW just push out a lot of PhDs because it's a research institution?

Don't know if any of you all have advice to weigh in on based on your own experiences :)
