Hi all! I am feeling extraordinarily lucky as I received acceptance at UNC and Hopkins and I am now trying to sort out which would be the best fit to attend. I am feeling one is a better curriculum/personality fit and the other is a better fit for my life/schedule/finances. Would any current students be willing to talk with me? I think I recall @DrPH2025and @BigTuna saying you're currently in these programs. If you wouldn't mind me sending you a direct message I'd be so appreciative!

I am also getting the sense none of the DrPH programs have financial aid options but wondering if anyone else has insight into that. Or tips on how to have those conversations. Apologies if this is the incorrect thread for this conversation!

Congrats!! That is awesome.

For posterity, at this time UNC doesn't do any financial aid for the DrPH. However, occasionally we get emails for smaller scholarships that can be a nice gift but are small compared to the total cost. The most common form of financial assistance is employer tuition assistance (or none).

 

I'll DM you my email.

Is anyone else on here considering/going to UNC's executive drph? I am heavily leaning that way (hopkins is the other possibility) pending figuring out financing. Would love to talk with anyone else going or considering!

Rutger DrPH applicants— did y’all every get a “application under review” type email? I only got a “application received” email back in Dec. however, I know that I’ve completed all the requirements so I just wanted to check to see what the norm was. Thanks. 

Hi, Did you receive a generic information session email from Rutgers for a whole range of public health programs? Kind of strange to see this come in while we are waiting for decisions. Have you heard anything back from them? Thanks.

Hey all, 

I forgot to update as decision were coming in- things got a little busy. I ended up with 2 rejections, 1 waitlist, and 2 admission offers. I accepted the offer from Hopkins DrPH Health Policy track. I would love to connect with anyone else that's going to be starting this summer : )

Cheers!

Congratulations!! I wound up choosing UNC but I would have been health policy track as well. Would love to talk to another person interested in health policy!

Hi All, I'm planning for DrPH starting next year, Summer 2022. I'm interested in online programs as I plan to work FT. 

JHU concentration "Global Health: Policy and Evaluation" is something I'm keenly interested in. Are there people here who are from JHU DrPH 2021 batch or know anyone from this concentration?

Your help will be appreciated!
