  1. @pubhealth7 you can reach out to the school/department just to confirm because you don't wanna be either overdressed or underdressed. Usually, business casual is fine. Remember to wear comfortable shoes!!! That's what I was told.
  2. @MDMS2020 I attended an online info session with Angela and Dr. Stuver. I was told that they accepted 9 people. But only 4-5 ended up matriculating. And since BU no longer requires the GRE, applicants will def. be doubled or even tripled. LOL I thought about applying to Penn State but the location sucks and I couldn't find anybody that has the same research interest(s) as I. So that's why I didn't apply there.
  3. @ehs20app Nice!! Hope your interviews at JHU went well. Yes, I have been waiting for BU. They take FOREVER!!!! Which program at BU did you apply to, if you don't mind me asking? I applied to the BU Epi program. Somebody from the group already heard back from BU's HRS.
  4. Ugh...that suck!!! If that so I don't think they reviewed my updated transcript. Anyway, Blah... @MDMS2020 Oh well, we will just have to wait then.
  5. @MDMS2020 Do you mean the Epi program director, Dr. Stuver or the Admission director, Angela? I sent my transcript to Angela and asked her to add it to my application. But who knows if she did or did not. LOL ... Even though she did, the Epi program people might not look at it... LOL
  6. @MDMS2020 Wait! What? I didn't even know that. Upon receiving all my final grades for this past fall, I updated my transcript in SOPHAS and also requested a copy sent to the Admissions. They didn't say anything and seemed fine. I also sent an updated transcript to other schools I applied to. They accepted it and were also fine.
  7. From earlier posts, a few people who applied to BU's HSR have heard back. Anyone applied to BU's Epi? Has anyone heard from the Epi department? They seem slow and are still reviewing applications?? Ugh...the wait is killing me!!!
  8. @meatbao Sorry to hear that. Hey, it's their lost. Just wait for good news cuz they are coming !!!
  9. @pubhealth7 Good luck on your interviews!!!
  10. @pubhealth7 I applied to the Epi program at BU but haven't heard from them. Do you mind me asking which BU program did you apply to? Thanks!
  11. Thank you @Samy95 Yes, hang in there!! Hey, who knows cuz we might end up going to NYU but different schools. Fingers crossed. @Samy95 who you wanna work with at NYU CGPH? If I remember, applicants need to identify potential mentors when applying? Have you reached out to him/her/them directly? Maybe that would help?!!
  12. Nice! Good luck @hopeful2020PhD I saw the UCSF program and didn't apply cuz it's extremely competitive. Yes, I totally agree. That was why I also applied to some of medical schools. Besides an interview invitation from NYU School of Medicine, I also got another invitation from CWRU School of Medicine.
  13. I wonder if any of you applied to epidemiology/population health/biostatistics programs offered at any school of medicine, or just schools of public health? Some medical schools do offer PhD in these fields.
  14. @Samy95 I also applied to Columbia's soiomedical sciences and haven't heard back from them. Yes, the feeling is awfulllllllllll. Hey, I also applied to NYU, though not to its school of Public Health but to its school of Medicine. The NYU School of Medicine also has PhD programs in epidemiology, population health, and biostats. And I already got an interview invitation.
