  1. Thank you for your help! Did you concentrate in community health or something similar? How was the job market for you? What would hustling entail (coursework, just being persistent, etc.)? Thanks!
  2. I entered my MPH program as a Community Health concentration (or its equivalent). However, now I'm having doubts about sticking with it because I'm afraid that it's not as marketable as other concentrations (ex. Epi/Biostats). I was considering switching into Epi/Biostats, but community health is a little more interesting in me (though I do appreciate aspects of Epi/Biostats). Has anyone else been in a similar situation and can offer some advice?

  4. Thanks so much for all of your help! I finally made a decision and I feel pretty good about it!
  5. How does NYU's Master of Public Health program compare to that of BU's? Also, is New York a better city to study public health or Boston?
  6. What city is better to study public health in, New York or Boston?
  7. How is student life at the Boston University School of Public Health? Do people feel that they are constantly stressed? How is the workload? Do people feel that they have free time to pursue extracurricular activities?
  8. Thanks! By the way, if you don't mind me asking, what school do you go to? I feel like I've seen your username on the forums here.
  9. Thanks! Is there a particular scenario in which where on went to school to get their MPH would matter (not my schools specifically)?
  10. Thanks for your help! Just out of curiosity, does it matter where you get your degree when you first graduate (I saw you said "...but where you got your degree would be irrelevant after 5 years in the field")?
  11. Thanks! Yeah, I'm still exploring, and I'm hoping that the core classes will help me figure out where I want to be in public health. How important is it to do a practicum in the state or city that I want to work? As NYU grows, how do you think it will place? I'm also a little confused about NYU's accreditation. Is it just the program that's accredited, or is it both the school and the program? Is there a difference?
  12. Thanks! Just out of curiosity, what does reputation involve? In other words, does BU being the more reputable program mean that it has a higher quality program? I've lived in New York all my life, so there is a likelihood that I may want to work and live there. However, I'm also open to relocating, especially if it means that I'll have a job. Should I be pigeon-holing myself in one state? Also, do people who attend BU strictly work in Massachusetts or Boston? Also, even though I'm currently interested in community health, I'm also open to changing concentrations. I don't really have a background in the other concentrations, but if I'm interested in the other concentrations, I might switch.
  13. I got into NYU and BU's MPH programs, but I'm having a hard time deciding which school to go to. I'm thinking of pursuing community health, though I may want to switch concentrations once I take the core classes. Does anyone have any tips? Thanks!
  14. Thanks! Did you know what you wanted to do career-wise entering the program (or do you know now), or did you just know where your interests were?
  15. Thanks! If you don't mind me asking, what school/program are you currently attending? Also, how sure were you about the MPH program and your concentration when you went in doing it?
  16. 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?

  19. What school has a better MPH program, George Washington University or Boston University? Also, more specifically, which school has a better Community Health/Global Health program?
