I'm at LLU SPH now and you can petition to get out of going to chapel so it's not a big deal.I was accepted into Loma Linda and I'm not an adventist person. But beware that they make all of their new students, including graduate and medical students, attend chapel once a week for 2 years! Yeah lame. But I know that UT Houston is a good school for public health and medical school. One of the top schools in Texas. If you get in and you are out of state that means you are really impressive!! The SPH is right down in the medical center, easy to get to and plenty of metro buses. And close parking! I work down there and drive, or walk, by it every day!!
