  1. Thank you so much for this kind offer! I would love to know: Do most professors prefer you contact them ahead of time, or do they generally want you to apply formally? That's excellent you are submitting your scores. I would be really proud of them if I were you, it shows you are well rounded and strong in all areas!
  2. Seconded, I think your scores are excellent! What is your writing score/percentile?
  3. All of what you put here sounds great and professional. As far as what to say and timing.. it depends on what you want to gain from contacting her. Do you want to see if she is still accepting students given COVID? Or do you just want to let her know you are applying and to look for your application? May is pretty recent (in my opinion at least), so maybe you could wait a month or two, so that way it will be closer to the time you submit your application. It really depends on what you want to gain .. and what questions you have for her. If you have a question about your SOP/Personal statement, perhaps reach out now and ask it. PS... I'm interested in chronic disease/SDOH too - maybe we will end up in same program ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. Hey Epid_2021! It's hard to say where you would likely gain admission given the competitiveness of PhD combined with the COVID funding situation. It may be helpful to look at schools focusing on your main interests - What topics are you interested in? Do you have a current list of schools you're interested in?
  5. FYI - SOPHAS is open today for the 2020-2021 cycle! I started this thread but did not list my credentials, so listing them here. I'm applying to Social/Bx Sci and Community Health Programs. I have an MPH, and have 4 years of post masters experience. I have 9 publications, first authored 5. Undergrad GPA 3.6; Grad school GPA 3.9. I took the GRE, scores are decent but nothing spectacular. Anyone know of any places to apply for external funding? Or is applying for external funding not as common for PhD (e.g., the university funds it fully).
  6. Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic resource!
  7. Thatโ€™s awesome! SBH is the best field, although I may be biased ๐Ÿ™‚
  8. Thought I'd start the thread for prospective doctoral students applying to start in Fall 2021. I'm starting it early so we can discuss and support each other given the added challenges of applying during a pandemic. I'm applying for my PhD in Social & Behavioral Health programs.
