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.

Yes, George Washington University. I asked about the status of my DrPh application global health track and the response I got back was that all doctoral applicants would be notified next week. I didn't ask any follow-up questions about department, etc.

Thank you! Sorry for the clarification question, I previously had a long conversation with someone before we found out we were talking about two different schools. At this point, I just want to know, so this helps considerably.

If this is helpful to anyone, I received a rejection email from GW GH DrPH this morning. I interviewed back in January and thought it went pretty well. 

That's really helpful. Thanks. Looks like they're starting to trickle out. Sorry for the rejection. Do you have another acceptance?

Got my George Washington DrPH Global Health rejection :( . Had a couple of weeks to come to terms with it - as didn't have an interview, so figured I wasn't on the short list. Nice to know the outcome at least....

Only Hopkins to go! Another 3 weeks of waiting then....

I also received a rejection from George Washington global health concentration. Wasn't too surprised since I was never contacted for an interview. Still waiting on Johns Hopkins, Boston University, and Harvard-thinking this is also a no as I have not been offered an interview.

I'm sorry to hear about the GWU rejections. Did anyone who interviewed hear anything back?

It looks like jr_tnd a few posts up had an interview and heard back about their rejection. Wondering if acceptances will take longer since they usually have the funding notifications with them. Also all the rejection notices so far were from global health.

I interviewed with the Health Policy program at the end of January. I hope what you say is the case and an offer and funding are forthcoming!

Health policy may come later as it looks like Health Behavior people haven't heard anything yet either. Their admissions office told me at the beginning of this week that all doctoral applicants would be notified next week.

Yeah the only Health Behavior one I see was no interview. I get that there is a universal acceptance deadline of April 15, but why can't there be a universal notification deadline? And why can't that date be like 2 weeks ago...

New to this forum. Applied to Colorado School of Public Health's Community and Behavioral Health DrPH program. Had an interview 2 weeks ago. Waiting game right now. It's been the longest 2 weeks of my life. 

My understanding is that the decision letters will come out next week.

Besides Emjayco, anyone else applying to this program?

Fingers Crossed. 

Best of luck to all

Hi all,

I've been lurking in the background, enjoying hearing about everyone's acceptances and commiserating with the rejections. I love how supportive everyone has been of each other. Just wanted to provide an update that I received an acceptance to GW's DrPH in Health Behavior program.

Thanks to everyone on this forum! I was also just accepted to GW DrPH, for Global Health - boisdejasmin and lrm72, did you receive any info about scholarships? I'm assuming that no info means I didn't receive anything but I wasn't sure. Thanks!

@lincoln.hawks This waiting game is killing me. They said early March at the latest, but they were hoping this week. I'm hoping this means all my waiting will be done this week. Seems like it is such a small program not too many applied? Or they just don't obsess over access this website?

@Lrm72@boisdejasmin@drph_324 My DrPH Health Behavior acceptance email said the same thing about who to contact about financing but the attached 'official letter' said: "Additionally, I am pleased to inform you that you have been recommended as a candidate for a Graduate Assistantship. Details about the assistantship opportunity will follow in an official letter." Sure would be nice to know what that means...or when the official letter mentioned in my official letter will come :) Congrats all!

@Lrm72 @drph_324 @emjayco @boisdejasmin  congrats on your acceptances! I was admitted to GW's Health Policy program today but no word on funding. ? 

If you dont mind my asking, how does everyone (except @emjayco) plan on financing their degree if they accept the offer? I thought some type of assistance would be offered (at least thats what I got from my interview). I cant fathom taking out any more student loans on top of what I have. Ughh!!

My letter says "we are in the process of identifying funding opportunities for which you might be a good fit. The Program Director will be reaching out to you soon to discuss some possible outcomes". I am a little surprised at this since my interview focused a fair amount on my experience teaching, so I was expecting to get plugged into a TA position first. Guess I'm just going to have to wait and see what they have waiting for me :)
