    SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads)
    Heard back from UMinn's Certificate program in Public Health Core Concepts yesterday - it was kind of my back-up plan in case I didn't get into an MPH program. The idea was actually recommended to me multiple times by people within the school. Anyway - denied!

    I'm worried now that UMinn's going to reject me completely. I still have SLU and Drexel acceptances, but UMinn's rejection is going to sting a little bit. I applied to the MCH-Epi program and still haven't heard back. I'm kind of betting it's because I lack part of the year of experience in MCH they require.

    But yeah, rejected from a certificate program, accepted into 2 other MPHs. Are they just not as selective as the certificate program or what? *frustrated*

    Thank you, werd814!

    And congratulations to you, spring6723—it certainly does make for a happy Valentine's Day. Are you already leaning toward one of your two schools, or are you going to be making your decision over the next few weeks?

    Cornell is for sure up there, but I'm waiting to hear back from a couple of schools. Money is definitely a factor so I'll need to investigate that a little more also.

    I'm pretty much 100% for UNC - I pretty much want to accept their offer right now, but I feel like it might be smarter to wait until I know what the money situation is... although I'm still going there even if they don't give me anything!

    I know that last year people heard back from UCLA around this time...so hopefully we should be hearing something soon! I am trying to resist the urge to contact them. :laugh:

    Hey Guys,

    Has anyone heard from the MPH program at JHU recently. it seems to me like they're on kind of recess or something cos many people on this forum haven't posted anything regarding the MPH program and even me too.
    I'll soon make my decision anyways....irrespective of whether I hear from them or not.
    Best wishes y'all

    They said at the beginning of January that they were just starting to review Sc.M apps and it would be closer to the 8 week timeline from when your app. was complete. If you application was completed in November - that's just crazy!

    Yes it is pretty crazy! But I had a friend who applied around the same time last year and she didn't hear back from them until March! She's currently there now, but my top choice was Emory anyways and I got in there so I'm mostly likely going to chose Emory regardless!

    J12345,

    The only reason I'm even worried about Hopkins is the sommer scholar awards which comes out in march. If we don't get a decision now its almost unlikely we'll even get the scholarship.

    Hi All,

    GPA 3.33 International Relations, Hispanic Studies, Econ minor
    GRE v. 650 q. 750
    2 years in MIT lab

    Applied: George Washington, Boston University, Emory, NYU, Columbia, Brown, UMass, Tufts
    Accepted: George Washington (Health Policy), Tufts, Brown (App was complete mid-December but missing a rec until mid-January and I found out yesterday) with 25% of tuition covered by scholarship.
    Waiting on the rest...

    If anyone knows what to expect from the financial aid package for GW if no scholarships were mentioned up front, that would be great!

    Thanks guys!

    Has anyone heard anything from Columbia? I applied to the Health Management track in early November and got confirmation from them in early January. Does anyone know if there is a chance decisions will be released before March?

    I just received notification of acceptance to Hopkins' Full-time MPH. I applied on Nov. 9, and just got the decision. I didn't get an e-mail, but the decision was posted on the application site. Anyone else waiting on them might want to start checking since they've started releasing decisions.

    I also applied to Columbia in early November, I did not receive a confirmation email from them but I have been in contact with them several times and they definitely have my application on file. They said they would release decisions in early March, and when I said that I applied in the "early" deadline, they told me that it does not guarantee that you will receive a decision earlier or not. It is quite frustrating because they are the last school I will hear back from by 2 months!

    I know what you mean - they made it seem as if submitting an app before the early deadline would be somewhat beneficial, but I guess not. Oh well :/

    Bummer, can you let us know what program it was for? Also, did they email you? I'm really hoping for Berkeley but they have always been very discouraging with how many acceptances they actually give out!

    I was also just rejected from Berkeley's MCH program. They sent me an email prompting me to check the online application, and the update was in the Status section.

    I submitted on 11/23, and it was confirmed on 12/14 -- so I heard 2 months exactly from the confirmation.

    I too applied to the management track. I haven't heard of anybody being accepted and I'm told March is when decisions will go out. No way around it. I was just accepted to Cornell so I'm not too hung up on Columbia's delay.

    Hi! It was the MPH. I expressed interest in the Center for Gerontology and they seem to be good about personalizing the acceptance emails. Not only that, but when you RSVP for the Open House they set you up with an interview with a professor. They told me I could score a Research Assistantship if it goes well so don't miss out on that opportunity!

    Results so far (all acceptances are for MCH/Social & Behavioral type programs):

    Applied: George Washington, Emory, Yale, Berkeley, UNC, UCLA, Hopkins, Columbia, SDSU

    Accepted: George Washington, Emory, Yale, Berkeley, UNC

    Rejected: None yet


    Does anyone know which school provides the best MCH training? I hear UNC is the best for MCH, but I could be wrong. I'm already having such a hard time ranking my schools and I still have to hear from 4 more! :confused: Any input would be great. Thanks.
