MPH decision factors? - UMich, UW, Columbia


Recommended Posts

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).

One potential consideration- if you’re interested in potentially going on to a PhD, UW makes it very easy (simplified application process, 95% acceptance rate, shorter time length).

Oh yeah! I went to their Visit Days and I remember hearing that, but it completely skipped my mind to consider it. Thanks so much!

Have any of the schools offered you any financial aid? Tuition scholarships, etc? As someone who got a scholarship for her MPH and STILL had to take out loans, which I am still paying back, save money where you can! 

Thanks for the advice! Columbia is the only place offering a scholarship, and I've decided to go there :)
