Hi All!Just wanted to get your two cents on MPH admissions. I'm extremely nervous to apply because I feel as if my numbers are quite weak. I've heard the application process for an MPH is holistic, but I'd like to hear your experiences for those of you have applied. I plan to apply to Environmental Health Sciences programs (specifically IH) and my top choice is UCLA, CUNY, and perhaps U Michigan.Here are my stats:Major/minor: Biology/chemistry with a concentration in Ecology and Evolution from an R1 institution; graduated 2014GPA: a sad, sad, sad 2.989GRE: I take them next week, but according to my practice scores it's ~45th percentile Quant/~65-68th percentile Verbal-I have extensive research. I researched 2.5 years during my undergrad in a behavioral ecology lab which resulted in 2 publications and a poster presentation at my university's honors college. During the two different summers in my undergrad, I did research internships in Costa Rica (via Duke University) and at my university's off campus ecology lab. Both of which I received scholarships for. Currently, I work in a pediatric cancer lab and also have extensive experience in handling large research animals (from mice to monkeys).-I was also a teaching assistant during my undergrad. One semester of ecology and one semester of vertebrae morphology-Whenever I can, I volunteer at Planned Parenthood and the Women's Center. Additionally, I am a member of my local AIHA chapter, whose president kindly offered to be my mentor.LORs from: My current PI, my PI from undergrad, my industrial hygiene mentor, and my advisorPersonal statement is in the works! I will be visiting UCLA's campus to speak with professors and financial aid about the program/research. I'm hoping meeting with some faculty might also help me out. Won't be counting on it too much, but you never know! Any advice is helpful, thank you!
