    XXXXXXphd2021 got a reaction from Kelso123 in How should I structure my essays for dual MSW / MPH programs?   
    Hi I have a MSW/MPH dual degree. I think it depends on the review committee if they are separate and unaware that you are applying for a dual degree then separate them. I think you could try contacting the program admins and they will provide a better idea. These two degrees are indeed interrelated, especially with Covid and the growing awareness of social determinants of health, I don’t think your essays need to be that of a difference for these applications even they are separate

    First, thank you for creating this thread.  I cannot speak to UCBerkeley specifically, but in the past my experience was even for documentation not required it will say "awaiting".  It doesn't mean that your application won't be viewed.  However, if you are concerned reach out to admin.  
    I wasn't applying this cycle but I ended up applying to the University of Alabama.  It is the only school I applied to this cycle.

    Don't lose hope! I am not sure if they have sent out all the interviews yet. From last few years results for some years they even did multiple invite batches end Jan, Feb and March. kinda weird.

    hey ya'll, i've officially accepted my offer from Tulane SBPS after reaching out to Brown's BSHS program director to gain insight on waitlist movement.
    i'm super excited and would love to connect with anyone else who plans to attend Tulane (regardless of department) since I know absolutely no one in NOLA haha

    I wrote the program director with an one-sentence email, a few hours later the decision was rendered on the portal. (I'm not sure if it's because of my email pushing or they're gonna do it anyways.) Applicants do it all the time so no need to overthinking it .

    it would not hurt to ask about your position on the waitlist. I didn't ask for the 'position' for mine, as my target program is small, every student's funding mechanism is different, so I doubt that they have a strict waitlist ranking tbh. But every program is different, if I were waitlisted by some other programs, I might reach out to program director/administrator and ask about positions and how many ppl were taken off from waitlist on average. 
    (I also think info. from gradcafe might be even more helpful as programs usually approach it in a formal way.)

    If they extend the 415 deadline then those on the waitlists would even hear later, this will just become a vicious cycle lol.

    Just got my last decision back (UCLA ID EPI)! 4/4 rejections. Time to start prepping for the next application cycle.. lol
    As much as it stings, I'm allowing myself just 5 minutes to feel down. To those who are in the same boat, as much as we hate to hear it, it's a pretty random process. On paper, I would have a pretty competitive application (20 peer reviewed articles, several first author publications, 5+ years of professional experience, led some workgroups in collab. with CDC, great LORs, decent grades), but alas it all comes down to right time, right place. ?

    There are too many factors weighing in, e.g. other faculty has higher priority this cycle in taking on students, one specific student with similar interests and very strong connections is also applying, etc. etc. etc. If you really want to work with the POIs and do not plan to commit to other programs this cycle, why not? 
    I will def reapply next cycle, if my international status isn't a concern I wish I could even try a third year, because it is really hard for me to find a matched program. But next cycle I'm expanding my selections, I'm waitlisted by my top program this cycle (more like an 'honorable mention' type of waitlist), but I wouldn't even count to get an interview next yr.
