  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!
  3. Dear All, This is my first post on this forum. I have been working in Global Health for past 6 Yrs. and now decided to get my second masters in Public health. The first one I have is in International Business. I got accepted in the PG Certificate, Public Health long distance course at London School of Tropical medicine and Hygiene. My goal is to eventually roll this certificate into an MSc in Public Health. I am looking for recommendations on how to prepare for long distance courses, how many modules are doable per year? Any suggestion and your personal experience stories are much appreciated. Thank you!

LOR from a Epi Professor in Emory Rollin SOPH. Do I have any chance to got fully funded PhD program? Any advice's welcome...

    Hi guys! I'm a fourth year BSc Psychology student with a 3.85/4.0 GPA in my last two years. I have 2 years worth of experience working on a large Epidemiological study, as well as 3 years of experience working as a Manager at a hospital. I received an A+ in all my Statistics courses in my undergrad.

MSc Epidemiology Ottawa- Rejected MPH Epidemiology Toronto- Waitlisted MSc Epidemiology Queen's- No news Anyone hear back from MSc Epi Queen's yet?
  6. I was just admitted to Texas A&M today for their MPH program. I'm still awaiting responses from other schools but has anyone here been in the MPH program there? How did you like? Did it align with your career goals? How is the campus climate? The student to faculty ratio in this program? The job opportunities availible? Proximity to major cities?
