  1. MPH vs MS and profile review

    Hi guys, I am an international applicant applying for the environmental health science MS/MPH program this year. The unis I've shortlisted are: Columbia Boston University UNC-Chapel Hill NYU USC Ohio State Univ of Minnesota (twin cities) Profile: My undergrad GPA (life sciences) is 3.86 on 4 and I am currently pursuing a post-graduate diploma in clinical research. WES evaluation is still underway and TOEFL iBT is 110. I have one publication and around 5month research experience in computational biology. I have also done an add-on course in medical biotech and interned at a tox lab for 3 months. I have decent LORs from my professors and a research scientist. The low: my GRE score is 313 (155q, 158v). Lack of experience in public health (is it an important factor?) What are my chances with my current status? Could you suggest unis where I have a higher chance of getting in? Should I edit the list? Also, what is the difference between MPH and MS. Which one is preferable for a job in the industry?
  2. I am a recent graduate from a state school with a Bachelors in Health Science. I am planning on applying to graduate school for Masters in Health Management/Health Administration. I took the GRE 2 weeks ago, and my scores were...abysmal. It was 150 in Verbal, 151 in Quant, and a 3.5 in writing. I wanted to take it again before I apply to get a higher score. Unfortunately, there are no more available GRE tests for the month of November in my area, according to the ETS website. I think my experience is good, but my stats are pretty low. I have a 3.4/3.85 cumulative/major GPA. My experience includes: - 4 month health policy internship - 2.5 years in the COPE Health Scholar program - 10 months in COPE Health Scholar Leadership Team (Admin Coordinator) - Jumpstart AmeriCorps Member - English Academic Tutor for over a year - CDC Undergraduate Public Health Scholar - Health Science Honor Society Member -Eta Sigma Gamma - Health Outreach/Data Analysis internship with Michigan Medicine - 5 months Research internship with non-profit (focusing on social determinants of health) - Currently a AmeriCorps Community Health Fellow Some of the school that I am planning on applying to include USC, UMich, UMinn, Boston, UWash, Loma Linda, CSUN, Tulane, Emory, GWU, UCLA (which I might withdraw from now)I have letter of recs from professors from internships...but I'm worried that my stats would be a barrier for me to get accepted to any school. I wanted to take the GRE again, but since there are no sites available for me to take it before the application deadline, I don't know what to do anymore. I just want to be accepted somewhere. I would really appreciate any advice. Thank you!

If you could, please include the following information in your response: GPA: GRE (Verbal/Math/Writing) Applied: Accepted: Rejected: Waitlist: description of relevant work experience and other factors: Thank you!
