Submitting appLast minute tips to become a more appealing applicant?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make myself more appealing to the admissions committees? I am applying to MPH program but my GRE was a bit low but I do have a decent GPA (3.22) & a valuable research assistant position & internship at a federally qualified health center. I will be submitting on March 1st... Thanks!

@cnkwoc2 I applied to a few MPH programs, just accepted an offer this week. I would just make sure your CV highlights your experience with your internship and your RA-ship. I would also make sure your SOP is tight and really says what you want it to say. If you are applying through SOPHAS, make sure you give yourself enough time for verification and their processes, too. 

I don't know about making yourself appealing. I'm of the school of thought that the best thing you can do is put as much of yourself on paper so that you feel as though you are presenting yourself as fully as you can. Of course, you want it be positive, but also you want to maintain your sense of authenticity and who you are as a scholar.  

Feel free to PM or ask any more questions. I'm happy to chat!
