  1. This exactly!!!! This might be my second year applying... If anyone ever gets back to me. Even with great fit, it truly is just dumb luck.
  2. Srry!! Meant to quote you!
  3. I emailed one back in may and she got back to me and we had a phone call. Our interests were identical and she was even astonish at the similarities. I reached out again a month ago and she hasn't replied. I just sent another email. Since our last chat, I spoke to students and the program director, to make sure it was a right fit overall. Now I can't get a hold of her. It's the only school I need GREs for and if she's not getting back to me, I don't wanna take my GRE and waste my money. I emailed 3 others and no one has gotten back to me. One of them I've worked on research with about 2-
  4. Has anyone had any luck with initial emails to POIs?
  5. One form for all of them. Make sure you let them know that you'll be applying to multiple programs and not one specific program( you don't want them to mention a specific program).
  6. Have you tried LinkedIn?? They have awesome advice on there. I wouldn't add any non public/ health-care experience prior to mph. Make sure it's all Relevant.
  7. Thanks! Unfortunately I am very very very limited in programs that I can apply to. I have a 7 month old baby, just bought a house right before the pandemic hit, and my husband plans on going back to school for occupational therapy. I live outside of Philadelphia, so programs have to be within 2 hrs driving distance. One of the program coordinators ive been chatting with gave me this piece of advice: One of the most critical components of the PhD application is the applicant "fit" with a faculty member who has a shared research content expertise. I strongly encourage you to research
  8. I see a lot of science (biology/chemistry/physics/etc...) post online of a typical day for a first year phd student, but can't seem to find what it's like for those in public health/social sciences. Does anyone want to share what their first semester/year as a new phd student was or has been like. Of course it will vary depending on the school, but just general idea would be great. Thanks!!
  9. Hey all, i'm thinking of applying this cycle to BH programs. I was just wondering how you are all going about reaching out to faculty during these times. I spoke to a great match back in May, but not sure how to follow-up and reach out again to let her know I'm still interested. what do I say exactly? do I jsut strike up a random convo on how her reseaerch is doing? not sure how to go about this. Any advice? I have an MPH and my background is in diabetes in underserved populations.
  10. We both haven't heard from University of Maryland yet.... Very frustrating. Tried emailing and nothing.

    Cv/resume question

    I will be giving a talk about diabetes on a local radio station, how can I included that in my CV? Should I even include it? FYI: I work on the public health field. I just graduated with my mph and looking to apply to doctoral programs as well.
  12. Yes... Tell me about it. We're both going crazy (we're both waiting to hear from the same program). I emailed once since my interview asking for an update and did not get a reply. If it's a no...just say so, why drag it out. On a different note, how do you guys feel about applying to a new PhD program? It's not necessarily ceph accredited, but from my understanding, when it comes to PhD, it really doesn't matter (specially since my mph is ceph). And this isn't one of those online school or for-profit... A legit University.
  13. Anyone still waiting for a yes, no, wait-list? Still waiting to hear something after my interview March 22. ? it's driving me nuts!!
