  1. Hi, I just recieved my scores from the revised GRE. 146 verbal, 158 quant, and 4.0 AW. I know the verbal is awful.. I'm going to be applying for an MPH program for epidemiology. I'm really just looking to see if I can get into UMDNJ. I know its not the best public health school, but I live by there and it will save me a lot of money. Do I have any chance with those GRE scores? I have about a 3.3 gpa and some volunteer/work experience. Any help is greatly appreciated!!!
  2. Thank you! I go to school out of state so it would save me (well..my dad) a lot of money if I graduate early
  3. Hi everyone, I'd just like some input on the two options I have. I am currently a second semester junior with a 3.3 GPA on a pre-veterinary track. I have yet to take the GREs but will take them this summer. I plan on applying to graduate school for a masters in public health. I can cram my last classes into this fall semester and graduate early so I can apply to to grad school starting next Spring, or I can have a full last senior year, taking it easy and maybe getting some research in. I know there are a lot of factors in this decision, but I was just wondering if I have a lower chance of getting into grad school due to finishing my degree early with a decent GPA but not much experience???
