  1. Greetings *waves* I'm new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself, and maybe get some feedback about my graduate school pursuits. I am currently enrolled in a public health certificate program, completing the core competencies and would like to transfer these credits into an MPH program. My main concern is the employment outlook, both for supporting myself through grad school, and after completing the degree. So before pursuing public health, I got a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Biology. I was always interested in neuroscience but iffy about the kind of career it would entail (i.e. getting a PhD and taking more biology and chemistry classes when I didn't like half the ones I'd already taken; and biology courses keeping by GPA down). I am from NYC (Queens) and the job market is supersaturated and ultra-competitive. Maybe that goes without saying, but being in the eye of the storm I don't know what it looks like from the outside so maybe that isn't common knowledge. Dramatic relocation is on my agenda. It's been fairly evident that my economic worth here is virtually 0. Bit of a catch-22: I was raised here and want to get out, but need the financial means to do so, which seem to lie elsewhere... After graduating, I looked for research assistant jobs (or something similar in the realm of health/medicine) for upwards of a year. Since graduating the only actual job (as in $$) I've had was at the end of 2015, when I worked on two research projects on a temp assignment. Since spring of 2014, I've interned as an online consultant for a company that specializes in health IT. At the advice of others last summer to find something that will give me credentials beyond a Bachelors, in fitting that to my own career goals I decided an MPH might be a good option. I've always been curious about bioinformatics and enjoyed my stats classes (and I'm not math-phobic). Leaning biostats or epidemiology, and also something mental health-related would be cool. I should mention I have other internships now as well that are more public health-relevant, but still leave me part-time availability (in the event I ever find employment before starting an MPH program..) I will be completing the certificate program this spring, basically it's all the core/general competency coursework for an MPH (part-time@15 credits). For fall of next year, I'm looking at the Colorado School of Public Health. It is my first choice given that I fell in love with Colorado when I went there before, and the job market both in general and for PH, health, and biotech fields in particular seem promising. Supposedly it is not at all saturated either (or so I just read on another forum, though I think that was said 2-3 years ago). Other programs I'm considering are Rutgers, Drexel, SUNY Buffalo, U. Pittsburgh, and U. Michigan. Don't know if that's too many schools to apply to (I know for PhD programs, that's not a large number of prospects). My primary concern aside from getting into CSPH is being able to find work there to support myself. I know housing is getting pricey there, probably not on par with NYC but still. Is it reasonable to expect I will be able to find work more easily there compared to where I am now? Or am I completely screwed if I don't find anything before next fall? As far as academic stats: Undergrad GPA 3.27 (higher in later semesters, mostly Biology classes kept it down as I got a few C's) Grad courses completed so far: 2 A's; Enrolled this semester: biostats and epidemiology core Undergrad mathy/sciencey courses: 1 year of calculus, 1 year of statistics within the psychology dept, 1 semester being upper division, 1 year of chemistry (yes, my school required this amt of "hard science" for a Psych BS), and the biology minor. i.e. minimum requirements met for many MPH-biostats programs. If I have to go back and take linear alegbra, retake calculus so it's more recent, or whatever else before actually starting the Master's, at this point I don't think it's worth it. I mean I do have to eat and pay rent.. 2 professional conference presentations and 3 publication co-authorships w/ the company mentioned above GRE: N/A, will be taking in a few months most likely
  2. Colorado or Boston???

    Hi everyone!!! So, I need advice... Please I have been accepted to 5 schools, waitlisted at 2 and rejected at 2 for M.A/ M.S programs in SLP. I made my decision to attend University of Colorado- Boulder at the end of March and sent in my deposit, however, yesterday I found out I was accepted off of Emerson's waitlist!! Now I have to try to decide between the two schools. Can anyone give me any advice, pros and cons?? Both areas are totally opposite of each other! I visited both schools, Boulder for the open house and Emerson after the interview. I really thought I was set on Boulder, but now with Emerson I am completely torn! Each schools have their pros and cons but with my anxiety I am nervous I will make the wrong decision and that it will "haunt me". I am from NJ so it is a complete change going to Colorado... Boston is also different because I am not used to the city. It's basically between mountains or city life! I, personally, see myself working with the rehabilitation side of things when it comes to after grad school, however, I won't really know until I am in grad school. Also, does anyone know about the process of pulling out my spot at Boulder, if I decide to attend Emerson? Did no think I would have this much of an issue! Any advice is greatly appreciated! And congrats to all who have been accepted!
  3. Wanted to start a Colorado State University- Fort Collins thread. Does anyone know how competitive it is to get into CSU's MSW program? Has anyone been accepted/ rejected?
  4. Just was accepted into both programs. From Colorado and interested in Epidemiology. Wondering if a big name program will make a big difference for jobs even though it comes with a higher price tag. Also, wondering if I would get the same education from Colorado even though its a newer program. Any advice is appreciated! Cheers.
  5. I have narrowed my decision down to the following schools: University of Colorado - Boulder University of Washington - Seattle Iowa State University Georgia Tech Texas A&M Virginia Tech UC - Davis Which program is the overall best decision for an MS degree? Which school looks the best to employers? Which school is the most respected? Which program has the best job prospects? . Thanks!
  6. Hi everyone, Anyone else got admitted to the PhD program? From Southeast Asia.
  7. Hi all, After a dreadful application season, I want to start my searching early and have been reading up on University of Colorado at Denver and Boulder, along with U of New Mexico. I'm interested in the Applied Math graduate program and more specifically into Biomath. Does anyone have any suggestions or comments about these three schools?
