Applying to grad schools has made me appreciate weekends so much more. Weekends are such a reprieve from emails and grad school worries. Here is to another week of waiting  

Just received an offer for mph from waterloo ??

As excruciating as the pain is, it is still early in the game. It's March, and most decisions go until June. It's good to find healthy ways to process the information but we shouldn't let go just yet.

I’ll be joining you at lakehead via distance! I haven’t seen a Facebook page yet but hopefully one is made soon. I’m anxious to register for classes! Have either of you received emails yet about classes? 

Not yet! But the timetable is set to release this Monday so hopefully we will receive an email soon.

I got an email from SFU yesterday and I was accepted to the MPH program in population health! I was on the waitlist and I definitely didn't think I would get off it so I'm super surprised and excited. They even offered me an entrance scholarship! 

Congrats!

Just got rejected from Lakehead mph epi ? it hurts but I kind of expected it since I don't have any prior epi experience or any recent statistics course. All my previous education/experiences are related to health promotion.

But on a positive note, I am so excited to start Waterloo mph program in August ?

Good luck to those still waiting.

Is anyone else on the waitlist for MPH at Western? 

 

Thank you.

I'm still on the waitlist, and I have yet to hear anything. They said they would get back in June so hopefully this week? I'm trying not to be so anxious :/

Hi all,

new to the forum here and I need help making some tough decisions. Between Queens, McMaster, and Western for MPH, which one is better? My logic is the shorter the program length the better, which would make Western a better option. McMaster is more flexible as it's a mix of online and classroom learning, which allows me to keep a part time job on the side. 

What do you guys think? I would love to see you guys opinion on this.

I do believe McMaster has the best reputation out of the three and a great health sciences and medicine faculty. I am not sure about westerns program but it came down to a similiar situation for me between mcmaster, queens and guelph. I decided to choose McMaster after doing research on how the school ranks globally, the MPH program itself and the practicum opportunities. I didn't really factor the program length so much into my decision so that might mean more to your decision than mine. If you choose McMaster I will maybe see you in the fall, either way good luck with your decision and whatever you choose :)

Thank you Emily, 

I will be rejecting Queens so a spot should open up for those on the waitlist. Now it's between Western and McMaster.

Western has career development within the curriculum so that's something to consider. Basically you'll land a job faster.

Hello everyone,

I am dentist from India and new to this forum . I have some queries regarding admission requirements  particularly for  UBC, Uof T and SFU.

I never had any undergraduate level statistics course. I only had mathematics in my high school which i doubt will be considered for mph. Now my question is if i give general GRE scores, will it be considered equivalent to ug level stats?  If no, can anyone plz suggest me any online credited ug level course available for the same so that i can apply for 2019.

How long they gave the time to accept the offer. I am just curious as I am in the waiting list.

Curious about the same thing!!! 

I want to call the office but they said in the letter "don't ask us about the Waitlist..."

*freakingout*

No, the GRE can't be used as a replacement for undergraduate statistics. I believe UofT requires you take one course (or two courses) that cover a huge range of topics (listed on their website). I recommend looking to see if Athabasca University offers an online stats course. It's an online university so it should, but make sure it covers ALL of the required topics.
