  1. Then they really need to let you know! You need time to figure out moving, any visas or things like that... (Still nothing here, but head of program is off this week.)
  2. Thanks! Nope, I actually live about 20 miles from the school... I hope you hear something back from the e-mail. Are you international?
  3. Yep, extremely frustrating. Especially knowing that the semester is over now... Sorry you haven't heard anything either, KarlFrick.
  4. Well, I just interviewed with them last week (like 4 hours of interviews!), after assuming I'd been rejected (they called the week before--on like April 17--asked if I was still interested and asked when I could come for interview). I was told they'd be meeting yesterday, presumably to decide (was just a regular faculty meeting). So...hope to hear soon? I was rejected from the other place I applied to (Hopkins--they let me know a couple months ago!), so it's not like they have competition. Still...
  5. I responded to you over PM, but thought I'd respond here for others reading. I just got invited to interview today after dead silence for over 4 months. I'm guessing I was unofficially waitlisted? (Unofficially in the sense that they didn't tell me.) I'm guessing that could be the case for other schools, too--If someone didn't give their decision till 4/15, then slots might now be open.
  6. If anyone applied to JHU Population, Family And Reproductive Health, check your portal. Just saw my rejection (after seeing a couple reported in Results). Said an e-mail would be going out in next day or two. Oh well, figured I didn't really have a shot there and would have needed funding to afford it. Pretty sure I'm getting a UMd MCH rejection, too, since someone in Results reported an interview request today that they'd received a month ago. When I talked to head of program in November, he'd said rejections are sent out first, then interviews. So unless they're doing multiple rounds of interviews...maybe they changed the order in which they do things? Oh well, looks like no PhD program for me (only applied to two since want to stay local)
  7. I'm CHES and included it in my resume with the applications. No idea if it would make any difference or not.
  8. Congrats! Just FYI for others--not for all JHU programs have been updated. Still in limbo on Population, Family, and Reproductive Health: "Application sent for review."
  9. Congrats!!! Odd that no e-mail was sent. Mine (Maternal and Child Health) still says Application under Departmental/Program review...It's under a different department though, Family Science.
  10. Yeah...I'm starting to think that, too. They could at least let us know that! Even if it's a group form e-mail...
  11. I keep checking, too! My therapist said the advice he got when he applied for his PhD was to just try to forget you'd even applied. That's much easier said than done! Doesn't help that I've e-mailed the department head for one of the programs last week, and he hasn't gotten back to me... despite having told me when I talked to him a few months ago that interviews would be late Jan./early Feb. and that flat-out rejections would go out pretty early (before interview requests).
  12. Thanks. Was going to apply to GWU but ended up changing my mind (kinda wish I had now!)
  13. Anyone who applied to JHU Population, Family, and Reproductive Health heard anything?
  14. OK, I feel better that you also didn't have anything new in yours--maybe they're still working on the Family Science/Maternal and Child Health department? OK, that's helpful to know. I thought Dr. Roy had said fewer applicants than that...or maybe that total was for both Family Science and Maternal and Child Health, then they pick 2-4 for each program, so 4-8 total out of the 30? I think Dr. King-Marshall said they generally interview 10 for that number of spots--I think both said not getting any news early was a good sign because they send out rejections first. But I worry they're just behind this year? Hope we hear something soon! I started drafting an e-mail to Dr. King-Marshall to check on status, but afraid to send it because I don't want to seem annoying!
  15. Thanks, just went in to check mine and am having difficulty--the problem is, I started an application for the Family Science program (which was not through SOPHAS), then decided to just apply to Maternal and Child Health (which is through SOPHAS). So when I try to access my application on their site, sometimes i end up with the correct one, other times, the wrong one. Had a moment of panic because it said my Recommendations hadn't been submitted, when I knew all 3 had gone through SOPHAS...but apparently, this was for the application that I never completed...Hopefully I can manage to access the real one! Can I ask how yours changed? Hopefully in a positive way!
  16. I hope so! Mine had that, too--well, I only sent them one set of scores, so it just said "GRE received official"--but I'm not sure if it said that before or not. I was hoping we would have heard this week--with Monday being a holiday, I imagine the soonest we'd hear now is Tuesday... Do you have problems logging in to the portal? I can't seem to find a link that works to get to it, so I just have to use the link from my e-mail to reset the password, then request to reset it, then I can get in. Anytime I try to use some other URL to get to it, I receive an error message. If you have a better way, let me know!
  17. That's basically what he told me, too :-) I ended up submitting mine by 11/15 because I think the deadlines listed on SOPHAS conflicted with those on UMd's site, plus I was concerned about how long it would take SOPHAS to verify it (ended up taking only a day!) I hope we hear something soon... Do you remember what he said about interviews? I thought he said something about it being a group thing rather than individual, but maybe that's just part of it?
  18. Mine lists the same date--maybe that's when she passed them all along to the actual department?
  19. Thanks for the update! How did you get the request for interview--e-mail or phone call? And who did it come from? (Just making sure if it's in e-mail it doesn't end up in spam...) Good luck!
  20. Does yours also say "Under Departmental/Program review"? Also very nervous! (I was expecting to have received a rejection by now, honestly!)
  21. I had a similar issue with Hopkins. Apparently, when I took the GREs, I picked "Bloomberg School of Public Health" instead of the Hopkins one that involved SOPHAS--I think because it was SOPHAS Hopkins MPH, and I wasn't applying for an MPH. I told this to the admissions person at Hopkins, and she was able to retrieve my GRE scores from the portal where I had them sent. I hope that makes sense...So maybe let the UCLA rep know where you submitted them and see if they can access them there?
  22. I applied at JHU for their Population, Family, and Reproductive Health program and also haven't heard anything. (Submitted application 12/1).
