Are schools/admissions open today for Presidents Day? (I.e. can I give my email a rest or not?) :rolleyes:

 

Depends on the school. JHU is open for instance but BU is not.

You can always check the academic calendar. It's probably different for every school.

I just sent them an e-mail and got an automatic response. The person who's in charge of the applications is away and will be back one week from now. Not expecting to hear anything from them until so. 

It's been past one week since then...did you hear back from the JHU Mental Health Dept Academic Coordinator on when the results will be sent to students?

Thanks for the heads up, guys! Confirming also that JHU decisions are up on the portal, without any email sent.

Luckily, I was accepted to HBS. Still no information on funding, so I don't know if I'll accept. 

Good luck everybody.

 

Congrats!

Just FYI for others--not for all JHU programs have been updated. Still in limbo on Population, Family, and Reproductive Health: "Application sent for review."

During my interview with Behavioral and Community Health Sciences they stated that they fund their students for at least the first two years. I'm sure the letter will say that's not guaranteed, but she did seem confident students in this program will be funded for at least those years. 

You are right. I was accepted to UPitt's DrPH program -Behavioral and Community Health Sciences . I got my official letter already which generally states that the department has a limited number of GSR positions available each year for doctoral students. The DrPH flow chart shows that funding is explored before the interview is conducted and also a funding follow up once the student accepts the offer.

Did you also discuss it in your interview and have a feel for how much funding is provided?

I didn't discuss it in my interview but i sent an email. The reply i got says that the Department Chair is in the process of making funding decisions.

Information from the website also says that many doctoral students get funded. Fingers crossed.

I know that the Epi track for the Harvard Population Health Sciences PhD will hear back this week. It's the last school I'm waiting to hear back from and I literally cannot think about anything else! Knowing my luck, we won't hear anything until Friday, which means I will be getting very little done at work this week -_________-

Long time lurker, first time poster

Anyone else here waiting on Pitt EHS? It's the only school left at this point that could potentially (pending campus visit to assess fit/feel) replace my current top choice. Even though at this point I'm 90% sure I'll end up at this other program, I just want to be done with this process already!

Looks like the admissions process is winding up?

Yes, I think most programs will respond by early March.

Thanks a lot!

I was wondering if they accept new students without interviews. Their website said: "Is an interview required? No, not unless further info is needed to ascertain the applicant's interest or knowledge level." (https://www.jhsph.edu/departments/mental-health/prospective-students-and-fellows/application-information/)

I honestly have no idea and I was surprised when they reached out as I had read that FAQ as well and wasn't expecting to hear from them. I haven't heard any updates yet so just keeping my fingers crossed...

Does anyone know when Columbia Epi is planning to release decisions?

They told me they hoped to notify people by end of the month.

Guys, I know I'm being super impatient / slowly descending into madness, but I feel like March is crazy late, especially compared to the other disciplines! Give us the news, people!

Yes, I agree. March seems late considering we have to commit in April...

I agree, when I asked during the interview they just said "soon". Hopefully we hear this week or next.

I'm honestly in a strange daze right now. My official acceptance for Harvard's Population Health Sciences program came through a bit ago (Social and Behavioral Sciences concentration). I was not expecting this, at all.

Edit: Accidentally entered it under "Clinical And Population Health Research" on the Results page because there's a strange autocorrect system...

I feel the same way! I was accepted to Harvard PHS-Epi today and I still can't fully believe it.
