    PhD applicants: Fall 2018

    Has anyone heard nothing from programs they've applied to?

    DrPH Applicants Fall 2018

    Thank you. Yea, i have 8+ years of working in health care and 2/8 have been as a project coordinator in community health, so it seems as though I'd have to wait a few more years to apply for that program. They were my dream school for years, until I did a campus tour and met with a handful of faculty for their PhD program... I couldn't get a feel of what they wanted, but it sure as heck seemed like it wasn't me. Granted, that was a different department than the Drph, but still. Did you have any contact with that department or any faculty? Have you asked them why you were denied?

    DrPH Applicants Fall 2018

    And @TFPubHealth Do you know if they offer funding for those applying for the spring semester? I'm interested in applying but don't know if I should just wait until next year. Also, anyone applying to usf's drph.... How many years of experience do you have ? Is there funding? Feel feel to PM with any info. Thanks!

    Have you tried reaching out to some of the students at each institution? Or maybe some alumni? What were your reasons for applying to those schools? Based on that, make a pros and cons list. If you're able to, go on campus and try to get a feel for the school. When I started thinking about applying to PhD programs, I really wanted to attend University of South Florida. That was my dream school. I flew to Florida and attended a campus tour and met with a bunch of faculty one on one and at the end of a very exhausting day, I realized I was not a good fit at that school, no matter how hard I tried looking for something. The school is great and all, but I just didn't click with the faculty. That's something to keep in mind. Which one seems to be the one that'll get you to your overall goal.

    Had my interview the 22nd of March. They said I would hear back by the following week. (I would say by March 31). It'll be two weeks tomorrow since my interview and I haven't heard anything :-( Going nuts.

    Had my interview with Maryland this morning and I feel more nervous now than I did before the interview. I think I did pretty darn good. Definitely wasn't a horrible interview and they seemed to be impressed by the questions I asked. They also mentioned in the beginning that they were aware of the number of faculty I met at apha and that they all really liked me and we're excited about how enthusiastic I was about the program. They really liked that about me. Hearing that put me somewhat at ease. There was a confusing moment at the end when one of the faculty mentioned that when I get an email tomorrow i can ask more questions in regards to the program etc... Then another faculty jumped in and said that they will meet Monday (schools on spring break at the moment) with the rest of faulty and that they will go over our interview (seemed as though they weren't or haven't done any other phone interviews) and that they will get back to me next week. I didn't know what to think of that. Did you guys send thank you emails the same day or the next day?

    Thank you!!! Whether or not I get in, I'm just glad they were able to overlook my horrible GRE scores and look at my application as a whole. Quick question for anyone willing to answer, so in the email it said that I will be interwing with him and 2 other faculty . I haven't replied to the email yet cuz I'm way too excited, but would you think it's appropriate to ask for the name of the two other faculty? I was thinking if wording it like so, "To better prepare for my interview, I was wondering if it's possible to know the names of the other two faculty." Anythoughts ?

    I know there have been newer ppl commenting on this thread, so just wondering if any of you know anything regarding University of Maryland's maternal child health program (going the person that posted on results page last month sees this!).

    Thanks for the insight! If I don't get accepted this cycle, I'll most likely apply to the same school but a different department. There are a few faculty I'm in contact with currently, so I have options. Good point. And yea, ive realize that I need to broaden my scope a bit for next cycle (if that's the case).

    Has anyone here applied to a program 2+ times? How did you go about contacting faculty for the second or third round? Did you reach out to different ones?

    That's a great question! I'm interested in this as well. I'm sorry you were rejected from all programs :-( I applied to one school and have not heard anything back yet.
