    Yup. Definitely do this. Give each interviewer a short and simple "thank you for your time," and make sure each email is slightly personalized. If something memorable happened during the interview, bring it up. Like for one of mine, my boyfriend's father was his attending. Small world!

    123hardasABC got a reaction from samantha213 in MPH LOW GRE + LOW GPA & ACCEPTED. I DID IT - SO CAN YOU: The tale of the underdog applicant   
    Yup! I got in. I currently attend Mount Sinai, will be finishing this December, and have already applied to PhD programs. I also got in Emory and Boston (supposedly good programs for MPH) but settled for Sinai because it was cheapest (not more terminal degree,gotta save $$). And no, I did not address my GPA in my personal statement.

    Whatever makes you feel better - I can assure you I am not the only person who has gotten a phone call with an acceptance. Regardless, I ended up choosing Harvard.

    During my Masters, I picked up drinking. IPAs make As. But on a serious note, I like to draw, play the piano, play video games, run, rockclimb, and drink.

    I wish MyFitnessPal had a "Stress eating" option where you select "Stress eating" and it just....ignores that day, as if it never happened.

    If MyFitnessPal is listening, y'all gotta partner up with Postmates/Seamless/Grubhub/Delivery.com. Whenever someone hits "Stress eating," you refer them to a food and booze delivery service.
    OOOH! And maybe include a period tracker in MFP so it gives you discount codes during that time of the month.

    I refuse to look at my application material from this cycle but when I was applying for my MPH, I wrote that I attended "UC Berkekeley". It's genuinely shocking I've made it this far academically.

    When I'm stressed, I can't poop. Needless to say, this week has been rough.

    Yikes.... If I were you I'd go buy concealer, like right now in case it bruises and shows. If you can, also pick up some color correcting ones -- green to cancel out redness, yellow/orange for purple and blue.

    Yeah of course, if you want to rotate with them and...well, if you actually plan on attending that school. Otherwise, I would let it go.

    So all of your other interviews have 100% of your interviews with potential POIs? is that what I'm hearing.  so like you have 4-8 POIs at each university and you've managed to get scheduled with all of them? 
    They do their absolute best but things come up.  Umbrella programs most certainly may operate differently than smaller,individual program interviews.  If this is throwing you off of BU then I'd suggest you don't interview with them.  I have said it before, and will now say it again.  Do not go to a school with the intent on working with one specific person.  This often doesn't work out.  Things happen: faculty move, faculty lose funding, faculty take 2 students the year  before you instead of one.  It sets you up for failure.  What you should do at an interview is look at the personality of the students and faculty and general feel to make sure its a good fit for you as a person.  Are you a type A person but everyone around is you super passive?  Probably not going to be a good fit.  Also people rotate through their previous POI and realize they would hate working for them.  Finding a good fit in a lab to be successful is way more about the relationship and personality of your lab and you and a lot less about the research being "interesting" or "your favorite".  We say this every year to grad students and they come in thinking that its all about the research.  Well its not.  So you never know what your potential profs will be like once you work with them.
    Try to be a bit more open-minded and see the bigger picture here.  If you feel that BU has screwed up in this regard: cancel it and move on.
