DrPH Applicants Fall 2018

Recommended Posts

I applied to predominantly PhD programs, but did apply to the DrPH at GWU for Health Behavior (interview went well I think) and the DrPH at the Colorado School of Public Health. Has anyone applied to or heard from that program?

I suppose I answered my own question - Colorado emailed me today regarding an interview next week.

Have you been in touch with anyone at GW since your interview? I was expecting to get some notification to set up 1:1 interviews with professors sometime this week.

No I have not heard from GWU. I was not expecting to hear from them until the end of February, early March as I seem to remember that being the time frame they stated.

I interviewed with GWU DrPH GH last week of Jan. No updates though they did say expect mail in 4 weeks. Also waiting on JHU customized DrPH - the application status has been "sent for review" for several weeks though an admission committee member asked me via email when I was expecting to hear back from my other schools (does that have anything to do with anything?).

Noooooo. I was hoping Global health hadn't started interviews :(. 

Congrats though!

I only applied to the Bloomberg DrPH (June 2018) and haven't heard anything yet other than "Application Sent for Review." Hopefully it doesn't take until March like it looks like it did last year. 

I also applied to Johns Hopkins and just have the same message that application was sent for review.

Same status, though I did have faculty asking me when I'd hear back from some other school they wrote me a reference for...they have no idea I know they are on the admission committee 0_0 (which is why I didn't ask them to write me a SoPHAS reference in the first place).

Any updates from GWU Health Behavior? I’m on my phone traveling so scrolling through the results dear isn’t quite possible right now. 

 

Also, I had my interview with Colorado School of Public Health if anyone else applied or had questions. They expect to let people know late February early March at the latest.

No GW DrPH updates on this site yet. Fingers crossed we hear something soon!

Same for me, no updates from GW's Health Behavior department either. I'm hoping news will come sooner than later.

I emailed Johns Hopkins admissions and was also told decisions would be communicated the middle of March.

Good to know. I'm assuming Health Policy & Management will be around the same time then.

Thanks.

I feel the same way! But also feel disappointed since I haven't been offered any interviews yet which means most of the places I applied to are a no. GW told me through email that all doctoral applicants will be notified next week.

GW as in George Washington University? Did they say all doctoral applicants from all departments, etc.? Oh goodness. Been waiting ages for that if it is accurate.
