    SOPHAS sent out my application on 12/13/2011. Yale has emailed me twice, one to confirm the receiving of my application on 12/16/2011 and the other one on 01/12/2012 to acknowledge that my application was completed. The admission letter was delivered to my email on 01/27/2012, taking around two weeks for them to reach a decision.

    Hey folks,
    May I kindly propose that those of us who will interview with UNC'a AdCom should post questions that they asked. I will post mine as soon as I'm done as well as experiences.
    Thanks!

    I've been watching OPUS like a hawk all day, and I just saw that my To-Do List has been updated with two new Admissions items: Enrollment Decision Form and Enrollment Deposit. However, the Online Decision is still listed as unavailable.

    The same thing happened to EpiWin a couple of pages back, and someone responded that it meant an acceptance. EpiWin, have you received an official notification from Emory? I don't want to let myself get excited unless this is a sure thing.

    I got the online acceptance a week later, seems like the same thing has been happening to a few other people. I'd say it looks like good news!

    So did anyone else apply to the University of Washington's Epi program? They are having visit days the first week of March and I see on the website that you need to register by Feb 10th. I submitted my application back in November and still haven't heard anything yet...

    Which program did you apply to? I applied for MPH in epidemiology. Yale acknowledged my application on 1/4, but I still did not hear back from them. :(

    Hi All,

    I recieved an email four weeks back from BU that admissions would be sending decisions in four weeks. Anyone heard from them??

    Many thanks!

    I received a confirmation email from Yale on November 29. I have yet to hear anything, so I'm assuming it's a "no." :shrug:

    Congratulation!!!! I was accepted at Michigan Epi early this month and now waiting for the Michigan HBHE. I applied both because my background is in Epi and I love behavioral epidemiology and mixed methods (qualitative + quantitative)

    By the way, are you international students? What do you plan to finance your study? My brain is working hard now figure it out

    Finger crossed for our funding =)

    Has anybody heard from the Health Policy department at Yale? I received a completed application email on 1/4, and I'm started to get worried that I haven't heard back yet.

    I applied to Yale's management track myself. They emailed me Jan. 26 to confirm that my file is complete and it looks like it takes them about 2 weeks to reach a decision. I expect to hear back from them next week, have you received a confirmation email?

    Hey. My SOPHAS was mailed out to Yale since 11/9 and I only heard back from them last week. So you never know.

    Thank you!! =) I actually was not interviewed. I applied in the end of November and the only contact I had from them was an email about a week ago asking for an updated transcript. I'm excited--UNC is definitely one of my top choices!

    Oh goodness I'm starting to freak out. Anyone hear from UNC's HBHE? Do you think each MPH department is on it's own schedule or do you think all of MPH is lumped together?

    Update: Today OPUS provided my official acceptance letter, under the Online Decision link. I applied to the Global Health department and the Reproductive Health and Population Studies concentration.

    I had expected my application to be passed along to my second choice, BSHE, so this was a wonderful surprise. So happy to know that, no matter what happens with my other schools, I will be studying public health in the fall!

    I'm not sure if it's for a specific department. i was told that they are sending out decisions for applications that got in before the holidays. I received an email on Jan 9th saying that my application was complete.
    you can call the office and check on your application status.

    When did they send you a confirmation that your file is complete? I received an email from them the 26th and trying to get a feel for when I should expect a decision.

    Sounds like I can expect to hear from them sometime next week. And congratulations by the way, Yale's management track is quite competitive from what I've been able to gather. And hopefully you'll hear from Cornell soon, I'm still a little surprised they haven't gotten back to you, everything has been so quick with my application. Did you wind up sending them an email like I suggested?

    I heard back a couple weeks back, I think the dates I submitted and confirmed are somewhere in this thread. Also Emory finally sent an acceptance email after OPUS updated a week or so back.

    By portal do you mean SOPHAS? I got the acceptance emailed to me, and a physical letter mailed a few days later.

    Hey

    I got an acceptance from UMich for Hospital Epidem and Molecular Epidem MPH. I applied on Jan 10th 2012. I was late in applying. I am an international student. What are planning for scholarship and funding?

    I am still waiting for Columbia, Yale, Emory and Minnesota.
