    Johns Hopkins Fall 2018

    Hey everyone ! I am planning to go here in the fall. Is anyone else on here planning on going ?
  2. Stuck choosing between my top 3 picks UCSF, UPenn, and Johns Hopkins for a PhD in Cellular/Molecular/Developmental Biology (varies by school/program). From what I've seen, heard, and read, all three schools have amazing programs, I think my decision will more likely come down to quality of life in those three places. San Francisco - I'm from the Bay Area, so family is nearby, easiest move and probably safest of the three cities. BUT expensive af and I don't get the experience of moving to a new place. Philadelphia - Had great interviews with faculty members there, but didn't think the grad students I met were as outgoing or fun. Cheaper than SF for sure, but more expensive than Baltimore. Safer than Baltimore, but still more crime than SF. Baltimore - I really loved the city and students that I met here. In terms of cost-of-living, in Baltimore you get the most for what you pay. However, everyone keeps warning me about the crime rate in the city. Any advice is welcome, especially from current students at any of these schools or students who considered these places.
  3. Young female professional here in late 20's looking to get an MBA after graduating with an MPP this spring. I'll be moving back to the Baltimore D.C. area and was looking for advice on potential (worthwhile) MBA programs. I have great undergrad scores (3.8) and 5 years work experience with prestigious gov. fellowship. I think the MBA will help advance my network and move me into more competitive positions. Would a part-time/evening MBA program such as Hopkins, Smith, Loyola be worth considering? I'm not looking to go back to school full-time. Thanks in advance!
  4. I'm very interested in machine learning and its application to the healthcare/medical field. I am also interested in the Robotics program at Hopkins because of its wide array of machine learning research in the medical field. They research a large number of things like medical imaging, uses machine learning for surgical robots, analyzing EMR data, etc. Does anyone know of other universities that have similar medical focus? The ranking is not important. I am just looking for a little bit of a curriculum overlap here and there. Thank you!

    MPH Admissions

    Hey all, Thank you in advance for the advice. I am asking a question for my girlfriend. She is applying to MPH programs with a low GPA 3.2 and ok gre scores. 152Q and 159V. She has 5 years of international work experience peace corps, ESL teaching, research in health. What are her chances of getting into Harvard, Columbia, Hopkins, or Yale for their MPH programs??? Also, I am having trouble finding a thread for this year's MPH applicant statistics so feel free to post your stats in the comments: GPA 3.2 GRE: 152Q 159V other relevant factors:
  6. Hi, what are the pros and cons of doing a PhD from UNC Chapel Hill (Nutrition) versus Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (Health Policy and Management) [interest is in impact and evaluation of community interventions and policy on nutrition and health outcomes]? I've been accepted to both and funding is not an issue. I'm trying to think in terms of resources on campus, support, cohort size, and job outlook. I don't have an interest in academia after my PhD, just research. Thanks!
  7. I've narrowed down my final two choices for a PhD beginning Fall '17 to Johns Hopkins University's Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics (School of Engineering) and Brown University's Department of Biostatistics (School of Public Health). I've been accepted at both. I'm interested in applied statistics (I have work experience in data science and an M.S. already), so biostatistics sounds like a natural fit. I'm curious about the reputation of the Brown program. It seems small but mighty! My concern is that by going to Brown, I'm throwing away the opportunity to rub shoulders with JHU Biostatistics (they rejected me), but I suspect it's better to like the department you're in rather than the department you're near. I haven't heard much about JHU AMS. Thanks in advance for your $0.02.
  8. How would you rank these four programs for Immunology PhD (or biology more generally) : Duke, UT Southwester, Johns Hopkins, and Scripps?
  9. Hi all, I'm looking for feedback from individuals who graduated with PhDs from or have been accepted into either of these programs in Nutrition or Health Policy. What are things I should consider other than the regular research interests match, faculty match, and funding. What did you like about each of the programs? How do you feel your degree and school have helped with your job search. Thanks!
  10. Stuck choosing between my top 3 picks UCSF, UPenn, and Johns Hopkins for a PhD in Cellular/Molecular/Developmental Biology (varies by school/program). From what I've seen, heard, and read, all three schools have amazing programs, I think my decision will more likely come down to quality of life in those three places. My research interests are super broad so I'm not particularly worried about labs, I'm sure I will find PIs and labs at each program that I will love to work with. San Francisco - I'm from the Bay Area, so family is nearby, easiest move and probably safest of the three cities. BUT expensive af and I don't get the experience of moving to a new place. Philadelphia - Had great interviews with faculty members there, but didn't think the grad students I met were as outgoing or fun. Cheaper than SF for sure, but more expensive than Baltimore. Safer than Baltimore, but still more crime than SF. Baltimore - I really loved the city and students that I met here. In terms of cost-of-living, in Baltimore you get the most for what you pay. However, everyone keeps warning me about the crime rate in the city. Any advice is welcome, especially from current students at any of these schools or students who considered these places.
  11. Hi all, I am a graduating undergraduate senior deciding between master's programs in biostatistics at UNC, Johns Hopkins, and Harvard. I was wondering if anybody had any insight into these programs, because I am having a tough time deciding. My main concerns are difficulty of coursework, "friendliness" of faculty, opportunities open to master's students like research assistantships (since some schools can don't pay much attention to them), opportunities after graduation with a degree from either one, and obviously location. UNC is beautiful, but is living in Baltimore around the School of Public Health as dangerous as everyone says? I really appreciate any help on the topic. Thanks in advance!

    MPH - harvard vs. hopkins vs. columbia

    Hi everyone, I'm an international medical graduate. I have applied to MPH programs in the US, and was very fortunate to receive admittance offers by several great schools. I'm currently debating between Harvard, Hopkins and Columbia. Of note, I'll be re-locating with my partner. He has a great professional opportunity in Boston, can find reasonable options in NYC, and has few to no relevant options in Baltimore/D.C... which, of course, works in Harvard's favor for me. I would love to hear thoughts of any one currently applying/attending any of these schools, or any public health professionals/alumni. I do realize all three are great options, but my obsessive nature does not allow me to make any large decision before gathering as much information as I possibly can.. :-) Thanks for your help, good luck on your decision-making process! :-)
  13. I'm hoping for information on UK vs US programs. I've been very lucky with my acceptances for a Master's in Statistics. My options are: Duke Johns Hopkins Brown (Biostat) St Andrews Boston University Tulane They are all two year programs except St Andrews which is one year. I can't ignore the pros of a 1-year program: only 1 year of tuition and starting working a year sooner. My problem is that I don't know how U.S. employers (consulting, finance, data analytics are my interests) view a master's from St Andrews. The school seems fairly highly regarded in the UK from what I can find on rankings, etc., but I don't know if a 1-year master's from a UK university will carry any weight with future potential employers here in the states. Any insight anyone has on this would be greatly appreciated! Also, should I even consider Tulane given my other options? Thanks!

  15. I was accepted to both the JHU MS Finance and BC MSF programs but am unsure of which would provide me with more opportunities. In the future I want to work in the field of healthcare, as a business analyst or analyst of something (I do like numbers), but I am unsure which school would be better. At first I thought Hopkins, but then I noticed that the Carey school is lacking accreditation from the AACSB. And then I realized that a high number of the applicants BC offered admission to accepted. Yet, I cannot find statistics for other schools online? Any thoughts from current students, alums, or those affiliated in some way with either program?

    Why So Few Johns Hopkins Signatures?

    Hi, I'm interested to know why I see so few posts about Hopkins on the grad cafe? I want to apply there next year but it seems odd they have such a small presence here. Many signatures and posts for biomedical PhDs include the other big names (Stanford, Harvard, Yale, WUSTL, UW, Michigan Ann Arbor, UPenn, Rockefeller, MIT, UCSF etc.) but Hopkins seems sparsely represented. This is feeding my paranoia from the "rankings" available online: The "rankings" are also confusing, especially when trying to compare between NRC and US News which is to be expected. However, the differences are sometime staggering. Am I missing something relevant for my application decisions? Where do you think true "rank" lies? US News says top 10 (even top 5) across the board but NRC says "mid-tier" mostly (seems wrong to me though). I've already spoken with many people and done research on these ranking schemes so I understand variability and subjectivity are inherent to the process. What worries me is that the NRC weighs the program more than US News, which focuses only on outputs/stats/publications etc. Could it be that Hopkins is Top 5 overall quality of research but mid-tier in terms of programs/student life etc? Thanks for your advice! US News 2016 Immunology/Infectious Disease = #1 Cell Biology = #3 Molecular Biology = #3 NRC Immunology = 25-68 of 78 Microbiology/Immunology = 22-62 of 78 Cell Biology = 10-57 of 122 *Their Cellular and Molecular Medicine program is 2-17 or 122 however* Molecular Biology = 36-108 of 157 or 7-33 of 65 depending upon program
