jmm00 posted a topic in Architecture and PlanningHi All! I am a recent graduate (c/o 2016) interested in pursuing a Masters and/or PhD in Urban Planning in Fall 2018 (Interested in merging Public Health and Analytics - Using City/Regional data to create healthier spaces) Undergrad Major: Global Health and Environment, 3.39 GPA (3.76 major GPA) GRE: Haven't taken it yet, but I'm a decent test taker and will probably score in the upper 70s or mid/lower 80 percentile) Programs: Columbia GSAPP's MSUP (Urban Analytics), UC Berkeley, I have spent the past few months interning at public health organizations (domestic & internationally) Here are my questions: (1) Do I have a chance at getting into Columbia and/or Berkeley? Are there other graduate programs that focus on data? (2) Considering more competitive applicants with higher marks, is it possible to receive a scholarship or RA-ship funding for a graduate program with my grades? How can I become more competitive? I don't know anyone in real life who is in UP, which is why I'm here. Anything is better than nothing, so please please impart some knowledge! Thank you! **Also please do the poll above to help me be more competitive,
I was admitted to the Boston University Master of Public Health program! Just out of curiosity, are any of you still uncertain about the concentration you've chosen? Do you think you might change your concentration after completing some course work? I'm just wondering if anybody else is in the same situation as I am. Should I be pursuing a Master of Public Health degree if I'm not entirely sure where I want to be in public health? Would it be an issue to enter the program and then explore where I want to be in the program? Is it a common occurrence, or do people usually know what they're doing 100% when they enter the Master of Public Health program?
JohnSGrad95 posted a topic in The April 15th is this week! Freak-out forum.Which school has a better MPH program, George Washington University or Boston University? Specifically which school has better Community Health and Global Health programs? Thanks!
spoitier posted a topic in AnthropologyI am researching graduate programs and am trying to find something that fits my growing interest in the field of humanitarianism, human rights, disaster response, etc. while also addressing my passion for anthropology and global public health. USF has an MA-or-PhD/MPH option combining these things, but I'm having some trouble finding many other universities that offer extensive training and education in all three areas. Another factor making this search a bit difficult for me is my interest in focusing on infectious diseases. Can anyone out there offer any advice in where else I could look? Thanks in advance!!
rpflash100 posted a topic in Public HealthOne of the main reasons that I am pursuing a PhD program is to fill a large research gap (Maternal Mortality and Morbidity in MENAP; mostly Farsi-speaking areas though). But, there's a large gap there because not many people are researching it, which makes finding faculty to talk to, and eventually work with, very difficult. I know to look at faculty that are working in global maternal health, or working around the Middle East, but any other ideas? What about faculty from other disciplines - Nursing/Anthropology/International Policy? Thanks, RP
NYU is my top choice because I was admitted to a dual degree program so in three years I will have an MPH/MPA vs. a two year MPH from the others. The MPA comes from a top 10 management and policy school. I also want to live in NYC sometime and networking opportunity is endless! Tuition at all institutions is in the same range. My dream is to have a foreign service career but I know how competitive it is. I would aspire to a leadership role with International NGOs and government agencies as my fall back. The extra year for the dual degree, as well as NYC cost of living makes NYU by far the most expensive. I didn't get any scholarship to NYU. But it's my favorite. Emory has a great reputation in PH, I got a medium sized scholarship, cost of living in Atlanta is way less than NYU. Washington University is a great school, but their MPH program has only been accredited since 2012. They gave me the biggest award, nearly 50% tuition. Super cheap living costs So, is the three year dual degree worth the extra year of tuition at NYU, plus lack of financial support? Should I be concerned about Wash U's new MPH program being underdeveloped?
