Greetings everybody, I'm new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself, hence, maybe get some feedback about my graduate school pursuits. I just finished my bachelor's degree in Public Health and luckily I passed the interview for a Master's degree in One Health and Epidemiology at the same time. But the problem is: Now I have to choose which one to attend: 1. PH: Master in Public Health: (1-year course) from SEAOHUN, if I keep my score 3.0 GPA, free 1 year (not include the money to do my thesis) + 1500$ stipend. => I can learn in-depth about economic health or nutrition/occupational health/reproductive health. 2. Epi: if I have scholar: free 2 year-course, even including my thesis (help from a teacher of Massachusetts or my school to publish the thesis) + time to do summer course at University of Massachusetts Medical School => study in favor of academic research. I haven't decided which one to enroll in. I have trouble finding my interest because each course has its advantages. It is triggering to choose between the two. QUESTIONS 1: Have anyone learned PH or Epi program? Could you tell me your own experience? What are the major differences between the 2 coursework? 2: Career path in the future, which one will benefit more? 3: Could you share some insights about PH or Epi? P/s: I am not a native English, therefore, I will have some mistakes in my writing. I am so thankful if anyone could give me some advice. Thank you so much.
Hello everyone, I am new and to tell you a little about myself I'm currently a Junior in my undergrad program at BU. I am a double major between Computer Science (my primary major) and Political Science. I'd like to apply to political science PhD programs, and I'm trying to narrow down on the programs I want to focus on. I am planning on taking my GRE very soon, and I'm currently applying for a research grant with a professor. My overall GPA is a 3.6, though I hope to make that a little higher after this semester. However, my CS GPA (3.4ish) is much lower than my Poli Sci GPA (it's a 4.0). I am primarily interested in Comparative Politics, with a focus on political economy, and tech policy. My primary question is should I expect PhD programs to focus on my overall GPA or will they only really care about my Poli Sci GPA. Based on this which programs do you think I should look at? Also how will grad schools look at my double major in general? Also I expect to have good recommendations from my professors, I keep up with almost all my Poli Sci profs. Should I reach out to them about Grad school and possibly setting me up with professors at other schools, a few of them went to pretty prestigious programs like MIT, and UCB. In other words should I reach out to professors at other schools about applying - i've heard mixed answers so far? Finally, I've spent my last two summers doing a CS internship (before this I did research assistantship at my school), this summer I'm looking for something more policy/research related. I've applied to public policy positions, think tanks, and such. Is there anything else I should look at? What advice would you have for someone in this stage of the process, what should I be focused on now, and what can I do to stand out at this point? Thanks for all your help! Any advice is much appreciated!
