silvib2986 Posted February 28, 2014 Share Posted February 28, 2014 Help! I am trying to decide whether to accept my offer of admission to NYU's Global Institute of Public Health and move across the country, or stay in Texas and accept my offer from the University of North Texas SPH. Both programs are in community health, and honestly, after looking at the course requirements/elective offerings, both programs are really really similar. The only differences I see are that at UNT you have to take the CPH exam as part of the program requirement (which could be a plus, actually) and take another exam as part of the culminating experience, while at NYU you just do an internship.Of course, NYU is much more well known than UNT (although it's not a Columbia or JHU...), which could mean more connections, and better chances for getting a job after graduation because of name recognition, and more chances to do your practicum abroad. And living in NYC would be great (but expensive!) and perhaps offer more chances for internships at organizations in my area of interest (reproductive and women's health). But is that worth the almost 3x price tag (in tuition alone!) as compared to UNT? I am just so scared of getting in that much debt! But also afraid of passing up on a great opportunity just because I am scared of the price.I did recently visit NYU, although because of bad weather/cancelled flights I was not able to attend a class, like I wanted to. I did like it a lot, although maybe not enough to make it my clear top #1 choice. So, If anyone is also considering NYU or have already decided to attend, what made you chose it over your other options? or if you are in a similar situation, any input would be appreciated. That April 15th deadline is getting closer and closer!Thanks and sorry for the loooong message Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
