    PhD applicants: Fall 2018

    For the Epi Ph.D., it explicitly states that test scores should be sent to SOPHAS only. I would assume the same applies to your program.

    Yes, you have to keep your LoR's general when you submit to SOPHAS. As for the supplemental application, most schools who are in SOPHAS don't require to submit your LoR's, SoP ... etc. This is obviously redundant and they understand that. You just have to provide some basic information and pay a fee (if required).

    Is SOPHAS worth it?

    Hey all, I am applying in fall 2017 for a PhD program in Epidemiology to a couple of institutions. I am aware that PH schools in the US use (prefer) the centralized application portal, SOPHAS. I am an international applicant attending graduate school in Europe, and applying as an international student requires more time and financial resources, with additional tests such as TOEFL and transcript evaluations via WES (requiring approximately $200). I know some schools have their own internal applications systems for SPH applicants (e.g Berkeley), while others (e,g Rutgers) only accept applications through SOPHAS. And there comes the fees for SOPHAS ($135 for the first school and $50 for every additional applications). :-( So, come September, which one would be the best option to pursue? A SOPHAS application or a direct application to the schools? Is SOPHAS really worth it, considering I am applying to a PhD? Would applying to individual schools be a better option? Any advice immensely appreciated :-)
