    MPH Canada 2018

    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

    MPH Canada Fall 2017

    I couldn't find a thread for students applying for MPH 2017 in Canada. Which universities are you applying to? Are you taking the GRE?

    Benedictine University MPH

    Does anyone have any experience with this school or know much about their reputation. Would you recommend? They are CEPH accredited, but they're a small school so not much information out there....
  4. I have selected Waterloo to pursue my MPH, but this forum is open to anyone who is starting in Waterloo in the Fall 2018! Feel free to join, chat, and ask questions in this forum!
  5. Hey guys! I have to decide by Monday which school I will attend. I know that both programs are great options, I would like to go to the school where in the end my degree is more accredited and I have better job opportunities! If anyone has some insight into either program please let me know

    Portland State University

    I am still waiting to hear back from Portland State University for the fall of 2018. I applied for Health Management and Policy. I have waited roughly a month or so, I sent an email and I received an email stating I would hear by April 15th. Well, UMASS Amherst told me I have until April 15th to accept or decline their acceptance. Portland is my top school, the waiting is making me extremely tired.When should I send another email?Or should I just wait it out? Has anyone heard back from Portland? Has anyone been accepted into UMASS for their MPH?

    Americorps before MPH?

    I am looking into doing Americorps before pursuing an MPH in behavioral/social health. Does anybody have any advice on which program to apply for? VISTA, HealthCorps, Global Health Corps, NCCC Fema Corps, etc....? I am leaning towards HealthCorps but I am afraid it will be too difficult to get into because I don't have much health experience outside of volunteering & research.

    MPH: UCSD vs. NYU

    Hello, I have been accepted into both UCSD's and NYU's Master of Public Health programs, and I have to make a decision by April 15th. These are both new programs (I believe NYU's MPH is in its fourth year and this fall will be the first year for UCSD's MPH), and I'm having difficulties deciding between the two. I'm interested in epidemiological methods, environmental health, and especially climate change impacts on health. I also plan on pursuing a PhD after this MPH, and I am quite interested in UCSD's JDP PhD. Does anyone have any suggestions or have any useful information on either of these programs that could help me out? Thanks in advance--I appreciate it!
  10. Hello Grad Cafe, So I've just been informed I've been offered admission to a DC school to study an online MPH, with an option of becoming a campus student, should I decide later. I'm waiting to hear back from two other programs I've applied for. One is an Ivy league institution, the other is the number one MPH program in the country. All three options are online programs. My question is: Are there any full tuition scholarships/grants for the MPH. The DC school didn't offer me any scholarship whatsoever, hence why I'm still hoping to hear back from the other two school's with something towards tuition. I am a domestic student, due to having dual nationality, and so not considered an international student. I have been researching and saw some scholarships on this site: https://www.publichealthonline.org/scholarships-and-grants/ but I wondered if anyone else may know of any other options for scholarships? Advice, tips, suggestions welcomed.

  12. So, those are the only two schools I got into. University of Maryland SPH, and Milken Institute SPH (GWU). Milken is significantly more expensive (about double UMD) but doable w/ loans if I work part time. I'm fine with both of the actual programs themselves in terms of courses offered, but is either one held in significantly higher regard than the other? Will the school's reputation matter much for an MPH in Biostatistics anyway? I talked to a couple of advisors but didn't get any definite answers.

    MPH or MPP for Health Policy?

    Basically the title. I want to work in health policy, I think in government, and I'm just wondering which will give me the best place to start a career from. I got into the MPH program at George Washington in DC, and the MPP program at CMU with 50% tuition (technically the master of science of healthcare policy and management). is there going to be a career difference between the two? I would imagine an MPH gives you more lateral movement within public health, and the MPP gives you the same in the policy sphere.

    MPH Canada Cycle Fall 2017

    Let's share our experience for the Fall 2017 cycle!
  16. Title says most of it, just trying to gather input on deciding between either the CMU MSPPM or MSHCPM (master of science in public policy or health care policy) programs, (I applied to both), got 50% scholarship there, or the MPH program (health policy track) at George Washington. I want to go into health policy, potentially promotion, and just have no idea if the cost of going to GW is worth the networking opportunities offered there or if the skills gained at CMU will put me in a better place.
  17. Hello, I applied to the MPH program with a concentration of Health Promotion at George Washington University (GWU). I haven't heard back from them and the wait is giving me so much anxiety! Has someone already heard back from GWU? If so, how long did it take for them to review your app and send you a decision via email from the time your application was seen as "complete."
  18. I submitted my application back at the early deadline and it was confirmed that all of my supporting materials and fees had come in a couple of weeks later, but I still haven’t heard anything? I applied to the gerontology concentration and they told me it’d only be about 2 to 3 weeks to hear back about a decision, but my admissions status is still listed as pending. I’ve tried to get in contact with someone to no avail lol. So it’d be nice to hear about how long you had to wait! Also, if you have estimates for how long it took to hear back from Georgia State, that’s good too!

    UPenn MPH Program

    Hi all, I'm considering applying to the Penn MPH part-time for Fall 2018. I have a full time job and am not planning on relocating for this degree, so I am only considering Philadelphia schools. Penn obviously has a very prestigious name in general, and in the medical world, even though the program itself seems to be unranked. Does the name matter in this case? Or would it be similar to me going to Temple (only enticing because of the price tag). Or is online even a better option? Another benefit for Penn for me is that they waive the GRE if you had another graduate degree, which I do. Any and all advice is appreciated. Thanks!
  20. Hi, I just received my notification of admission to the Colorado School of Public Health. I applied because I like the location and their MPH program didn't require prior work experience. The school is a collaboration between UC Boulder, UC Denver, and University of Northern Colorado. I'm from Texas, and therefore don't have any idea of what the general perception of the school is. Is it seen as an advantage to have the resources of three separate schools available, or is it not as widely respected as a degree from one specific university (ex. MPH from the University of Texas)? I'm super excited to be admitted and look forward to potentially attending, but I don't want to get myself into a two year program if it's not a well-respected school. Let me know what you think about CSPH! Thanks, Maddie
  21. Hello! I am recently admitted to the mph program at mailman school of public health, and am exploring this program more in depth. I have a few questions that I would like to ask people who have been to this program. I am wondering if anybody who went to Mailman School of Public Health received merit-based scholarship from the program? If yes, what portion does it cover for your tuition? Also, what is the estimated cost of the whole program(including tuition, living expense, etc.). Based on your post-program job experience, would you say it's worth it? Last, what would you say is the greatest advantage for the program? Or disadvantage? Thank you in advance!

    MPH admit query

    I have received admits to Columbia, Boston, NYU, Ohio state and Minnesota for MPH in environmental health. While all schools are among the good ones, I was planning to accept Columbia's offer because of the opportunities it has to offer when it comes to experienced faculty and job opportunities being located in NYC. But again, with ivy comes a minimum $90k student debt. Will the degree be worth it? What are the job prospects if I am interested in toxicology? I'd really appreciate any input or feedback from former/ present MPH grads. Thanks!

    UAB Public Health

    Evening everyone! I was wondering if anyone knows more about the MPH/ Ph.D. program at UAB (the University of Alabama at Birmingham). How are their programs? I applied to UAB for a different grad program, but did my research and found that SOPH offers an MPH in Health Behavior and Ph.D. in Sociology. Any thoughts on the school?
  24. Hello! I was recently admitted to the CGU MPH program with a concentration of health promotion, education, and evaluation. I would love to chat to anybody else accepted to the program or those who are already attending the institution!

    MPH Chances and Advice

    Hey all, I was just looking for some candid feedback regarding my application. I am about to apply for the Environmental Health MPH program at Harvard School of Public Health. I will have almost 5 years of international work experience by the time I would enroll next fall. I worked for the Peace Corps in Africa, taught in Asia and have been doing Agriculture research in Latin America. I graduated from small liberal arts college with a degree in Political Science I received a 3.29 GPA. I took the GRE and got a 161V/ 158M/ 3 AW I know that the writing is egregious but the other two scores should be ok. I do not have a ton of full-time experience doing health-related work. I work in the agriculture sector in Peace Corps and did some health education. I did a lot of nutrition based planning regarding farm preparation. With the exception of teaching my work experience has been tangential to health which makes me somewhat nervous about admissions but I think that I pull together my Ag work nicely with Health in my personal statement. My LORs are very strong and I have advanced proficiency in two foreign languages. What are my chances at admissions for Harvard's MPH program? What do you think that I should do to increase my chances if I would reapply next year? Recap: GPA: 3.29 small lib arts GRE: 161V/158M/3AW 5 years work experience; peace corps (agriculture, Africa), teaching private school (English, Asia), research (agriculture, Latin America) program: Harvard MPH Environmental Health Thank you in advance!
