  1. I am preparing to apply to MPH and/or MHA programs for this upcoming Fall 2019 cohort. I have made my list of top schools, but after taking a step back I am worried my list is setting unrealistic expectations for myself. I am not sure how strong of an applicant I am on paper, and I don't want to set myself up for failure. I would really appreciate any advice about the likelihood of getting into my top choices (list below), so I can know if I should reevaluate my list. I graduated with my BS in May of 2018 from a state university in the southeast with a 3.72 GPA. During my time in undergrad I had an internship with a nonprofit public health organization, I was a research assistant in the PH graduate school Health Promotion and Behavior lab, I also worked multiple jobs on and off campus, and held numerous leadership positions in organizations. After graduation I completed a one-year practice administration fellowship in a hospital in the capitol city of the state. After my fellowship I was promoted to a supervisor in a physician practice. I have not taken my GRE yet, but I plan to take a prep class to hopefully get a decent score. I will have 2 years of work experience post undergrad in health care management experience. Here is my current list of schools I am considering (please let me know if you recommend any others) Boston University School of Public Health Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health Emory University Rollins School of Public Health George Washington University Milken Institue School of Public Health Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health University of Michigan- Ann Arbor University of North Carolina Gillings School of Global Public Health Yale School of Public Health
  2. Hi all,I am hoping to apply for an MPH program for Fall 2020, and would like some advice on pros and cons of different Canadian schools/programs. I am hoping to:-Do a project (not thesis) based program-Do an in-person (not online) degree-Focus in Global Health, with a practicum abroadGiven this, it seems that UofA and SFU MPH Global Health programs would be the best fit for me.I am wondering if anyone has insight into pros and cons of these programs, or insight into any other programs that might suit my interests?Thanks!

  4. Hello! I’m a Nursing Home Administrator and am in my decision process of choosing the right masters program for the Fall. UCLA eMPH and CSULB MSHCA-AP both accepted me, however, I’m not sure which school/ program is best for me. I’ve evaluated the course schedule, faculty, alumni, cost, time, and distance. UCLA has always been my dream school due to its prestige. Conversely, choosing UCLA would mean commuting to LA from OC every other week, taking Fridays off for classes, and hopefully crashing the night at an apartment so I don’t have to drive back the following day. CSULB has it’s pros and cons as well- it’s a hybrid program, so I would only need to commute every Saturday and the other half of the program is online. The drive is only about 20 mins to CSULB vs an hour to UCLA. CSULB is also a third of the cost compared to UCLA. So now the question is- which school and program should I choose and that it would be most applicable to my career in working with older adults as a Nursing Home Administrator? All thoughts are appreciated!
  5. Hi all, I’ve been accepted to two online MPH programs — Michigan and Dartmouth — and am having a lot of trouble deciding between the two. Both will cost me about the same. I plan to work full time during the program and use the degree to move up within my current field (management consulting). I understand Michigan has an actual School of Public Health, whereas Dartmouth’s program is housed within the medical school. Does this matter? Which will look better to employers (should I decide to move firms)? Both programs look fascinating but focus on different areas of public health. Dartmouth’s program is hybrid (requires 3 campus visits a year) and has a heavy emphasis on quality improvement, policy, and data analysis. Michigan’s program is completely online and more of a traditional MPH. I have one week to make a decision! Any feedback/input would be greatly appreciated!
  6. Hi- Wanted to start a topic for those accepted to UPitt for this upcoming fall. I was accepted to the PhD in Behavioral And Community Health Sciences. Anyone else accepted and considering this school?
  7. What factors should I consider when choosing which MPH program to attend? Or straight up tell me where you think I should go lol. I would be pursuing MPH in Epidemiology with a global health/social determinants of health concentration. I've narrowed down 3 schools: UMich-AA, University of Washington, and Columbia (Mailman).
  8. Did anyone apply to USF’s MPH or plan to go? Also, anyone already attending their MPH? I am looking for outside advice from others about the program. Any helpful info would be great. Thank you!
  9. Hello Friends, As this academic year is coming to a close, and MPH applications will be opening in just 6ish (months depending on where you're applying to of course!), I thought a thread for us to discuss, share our thoughts, feelings, fears, and the trials and tribulations of MPH applications would be helpful. I also find it helpful to know who's applying where I'm excited to start this journey and I'm hoping we all see acceptance letters/emails in under a year! Schools/programs I plan to apply to: UBC MPH UBC MSc in PPH (still need to start looking for a supervisor, how soon is too soon?) SFU MPH
  10. I am trying to decide between the following programs: Emory MPH, Boston University MPH, University of Michigan at Ann Arbor MPH, and Duke MsGH. I have been accepted into all four and need to make a decision soon! I am ultimately deciding between Emory and Duke, but I do not want to completely eliminate BU or Michigan yet. I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is a significant difference in the way a MPH or a MsGH (Masters of Global Health) is viewed in the job market or in academia. I am coming straight out of my undergrad and I ultimately want to continue my education after grad school (either get a PhD or possibly MD). I am interested in infectious diseases and outbreak preparedness. I was also hoping someone could tell me some general pros/cons of these programs or of their own experience. I am from North Carolina, so I know what life is like in Durham and at Duke, but I have never been to Ann Arbor and I have only spent a short amount of time in Boston and Atlanta.

  12. Hey everyone. I applied to the following MPH programs: University of Alberta, University of Saskatchewan, Lakehead and SFU. I've heard back from Saskatchewan so far (yay!) I have a BSc in Global Health. My goal is to work in Health Promotion. I'd like to have temporary placements in different parts of the world (esp. Latin America), but my permanent goal is to work in Northern Canada (I'm from ON, but I currently live in NWT). Could you share some thoughts on these different programs? UofA: specialization on Health Promotion. Saskatchewan: seems great, doesn't focus specifically on Health Promotion but I like the variety of courses (everything from Environmental PH to PH policy...). Lakehead: specialization on Indigenous and Northern Health. SFU: to be honest I don't know much about it. I applied because friends from BC highly recommended it ("It's the Harvard of the West Coast!") ---- Also, could someone clarify this from Saskatchewan: "The School of Public Health has reviewed your application and has recommended you for admission to the College of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (CGPS), which is the formal granting body for admissions. Once you accept your seat to the program, we send your information to CGPS for final review. From there, if they believe the student is a suitable candidate, they will send an official letter of acceptance via email and the student will be required to officially accept their seat via an online portal (PAWS). Admission may be revoked if students do not meet the criteria that CGPS has laid out in the official letter of acceptance. The deadline to accept your seat is March 1, 2019. " How does that work? If I choose Saskatchewan, I'm scared to accept their offer, reject others, and then have their offer revoked and be left with no programs.
  13. Hello I'm from India and I completed my MBBS n I want to do mph in canada .. Is it good option?? After mph in Canada what are the placements???
  14. I've recently been admitting to GWU and Colorado School of Public Health for Global Environmental Health. I'm receiving my BS in Environmental Science with a concentration in Public Health. I have had 2 years of undergraduate research in a lab. I'd just like to get some thoughts and opinions on what each school is like and which would be a better option? Thank you!
  15. Hi, Has anyone or their mother heard back from UC Berkeley's MPH Program? I applied under Health and Social Behavior, still waiting, and I'm wondering if I have anyone in the same boat with me.
  16. So I was accepted into 5 MPH programs but plan to eventually get a PhD. Would it be bad to ask each school if there's the possibility of applying while completing the MPH and if the credits would transfer?
  17. Has anyone else applied for the fall 2019 admissions at the School of public health, University of Alberta? Any progress on the applications? Any feedbacks you've heard from them or got any decisions yet?
  18. 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.
  19. I got accepted to UGA, UIC, University of Michigan and University of Texas Houston all for Epidemiology. I am having troubles deciding which one to choose. Tuition will be cheaper for me at UIC as I am from Chicago. However will I be able to find a good internship in Chicago? UGA is a pretty good program and Georgia the CDC isn't too far. University of Michigan is a great program but I really want to be in a big city for graduate school. Also are there good internship opportunities in Ann abor? Any comments
  20. Hey guys, I am PR in Canada and I have completed my medical degree from Pakistan. I graduated in 2016. I have two years of work experience in hospital and community health setup, 2 years of experience working in NGO, and I am currently volunteering in Long term care center in Ontario. My cGPA is 3.3 and my last two years as well as last 20 credits GPA is 3.18. I am planning to apply at Guelph/McMaster/Lakehead/Saskatchewan universities. I know my grades aren't competitive but I am trying to improve my work experience. I am also planning to take statistics course in June. Can you guys please share your experiences of you went through similar circumstances? How did you guys improve your profile? What suggestions can you give me to improve my profile? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks
  21. Has anyone heard anything from Upenn, Johns Hopkins or any other East Coast universities for decision in Masters in public health? I saw a couple people already got interview emails from Johns Hopkins but nothing about others.
  22. Hi guys, I'm just gonna give this a shot even though I have no idea if I'll get helpful responses. Just a bit of background. I am a 22 y/o recent college grad who applied for the MPH program and got into the Boston University School of Public Health with a merit scholarship of about ~20k for this Fall 2019. However, because of some compelling circumstances, I am also currently in the middle of a job search (I had to resign from my previous job). I applied for an MPH with an intention of studying Mental Health Policy. However, I also got a job offer at a pharmaceutical company. I am deciding whether or not I should accept the job offer. If so, I'd have to defer my acceptance to BU until next semester or next year. If I defer, my merit scholarship will be reconsidered. I am torn about what to do. The pharma job will give me more experience in the adult world and entering the workforce (I just graduated and have little work experience) before I go to graduate school. However, it does not align or tailor to my interests or field I want to go into with the MPH. Should I postpone my education and risk losing my scholarship to gain real world experience and save up a little more money? Or should I forego this opportunity and continue to waitress and do customer service jobs until Fall when I can start the program at BU? I really don't see an obvious answer as to what is the smart thing to do and I need all the advice I can get!!!! thanks
  23. Hey guys! I saw lots of MPH forums but not one specific for epidemiology. As far as I know UofT is the only Ontario epi program that's an MPH rather than MSc, so I thought I'd make us our own discussion. I'm a fourth year Biomedical Science undergrad from University of Guelph, applying for epi programs next year. I included the schools & statuses below. My stats are a 2 year GPA of about ~3.71, experience in academic epidemiology (undergraduate thesis in population medicine), work experience in public health epi (position was health data analyst), and good reference letters (coordinator of Guelph's MPH program and a medical officer of health). However, I haven't been published yet and haven't presented at any major conferences, which I'm worried about. Toronto's MPH (epi stream) is my top choice, but judging from last year's forums I'm not expecting to hear until late april or early may, which sucks Any other epi applicants in here?? I'm getting antsy waiting to hear back. Good luck everyone! Toronto MPH Epidemiology: Under Review Western MSc Epidemiology and Biostatistics: had interview on Feb 29th, still waiting to hear back but I'm not optimistic (they wanted me to have OGS funding...) Ottawa MSc Epidemiology: Under Review Guelph MSc Epidemiology: my prof has agreed to work with me again
  24. Should I use the professional transcript entry option if I have one undergraduate transcript, or should I just manually enter in my grades? The professional transcript entry option is $65 for three transcripts, and I only have one to enter.
  25. Hi everyone, Has anyone applied for the UC Berkeley online MPH for the spring semester? If so, what were your GRE scores/GPA and have you heard back yet? Thanks!
