SDN Members don't see this ad. About the ads. Hi all, I'm a current junior who studied International Relations and was accepted into a BA/MPH program at a top-15 public health school. It is non-binding, and I am interested in deferring and applying to additional programs while working/researching for a year. I have a 3.8 GPA and just received a 163Q and 161V score on the GREs, as well as a lot of work experience (I worked through college) on international and maternal health studies. I've taken an epidemiology class at the School of Public Health here and would like to concentrate in it, but I am concerned that many programs will not admit me due to my lack of science courses since high school. I have a number of statistics and public health courses, but that is all. I'm particularly interested in UNC, JHU, Emory, Columbia, and Harvard, though I'm open to other options. Are any of you current students there or familiar with students at these or other schools who studied epidemiology with a largely social science background? I have another year as an undergrad and could fit in several science and calculus courses if that would make a big difference, but it's a lot of effort when my current program will let me study epidemiology and double-concentrate in another subject with only one additional year and no prereqs. My public health school also offers "Biology of Public Health," Toxicology, and other classes, which would hopefully be biological enough for some of these schools. Please let me know your thoughts! Thanks so much for your help - it means a lot to me!
