  3. I am from Chicago and I have attended UIC undergrad. I know that it is possible to complete an MPH in about a year if you take a heavy full time course load. I heard that the program is not that competitive, so GRE scores are average. Stipends are generally not given unless you do a graduate fellowship, but if you apply for a grad degree in Biology, you can get around 3 grand a month and tuition paid. Hope this helps!

    I'm in a 2 year chemistry M.S. program. The stipend is $1400 a month and tuition. I didn't take the GRE but my undergrad was from the same institution (different department though). I applied in December of last year and was accepted in March for fall 2002. Course loads are three formal classes a term first year as well as teaching responsibilities. Second year is 1 course a term and research. The remaining credit hours both years are filled with blanket hours (or thesis hours).

    thanks to your great advice. I am in the process of searching for the right MS programs. Are there any 1 year MS program that you have known of? Please share if you know one.

    Hmmmm.....I don't personally know of any 1 year programs, although I'm sure there are some. I don't know how you would fit everything in though, unless you don't do a thesis masters but instead only pursue a project masters. A friend of mine completed a M.S. in analytical chemistry in a year and one term. He opted for the project masters (doing his project during the summer) and took four to five chemistry classes a term during the school year........I think he was insane!
