Chances are?

Hello all,

I am new to this forum and I was wondering if I could get some opinions.

I am currently a student finishing up my BS in Healthcare Mgmt. I have worked in the healthcare field for 11+ years as a medical secretary. My current GPA is 3.62. I didn't do too well on the GRE <1000 (a little less). Although I am scheduled to take it again. My references come from the Admin. of my facility (a long term ICF-MR facility), a Dr (also one of my instructors), and a personal reference. I am trying to get into the MPH program at ECU studying policy and administration. I did apply at UNC-CH (dreaming). I did find that Des Moines University does not require the GRE.

Does anyone think that I have realistic chances of getting into a MPH program and another factor I am 38 years old.

some universities will not accept students with scores that low nevertheless what the program thinks of your application.

a personal reference is also going to look poorly on your app.

with your age you probably have enough work experience where an MPH would mean very little career wise especially where $$ is concerned.

i have interns with MPHs from top 25 schools and they make an hourly wage some part time.

you want to goto a school where you will at least gain marketable skills and if the school does not filter well e.g., no gre required its probably meaningful and you will not walk away with what you want.
