Either read below or just comment on your opinions of GW/BU, and/or going to school part-time/full-time... Thanks! I'm trying to decide whether to go to GW or BU for international health (global health at GW)... I think I'm leaning towards BU because I feel like they have more International Health classes to choose from, plus they've been around longer than the GW Global Health program. Both are great schools (my opinion) in good locations, so I think its a win-win situation either way. Also, any input on whether going to school part time is a bad idea? I think I may work full-time and go to school part-time in order to offset the costs of going to an expensive school. The reasons I have for doing so include: Gaining more work experience, graduating with less loans, developing stronger relationships with faculty, and basically not rushing through coursework. I also plan on attending the Peace Corps after getting my masters, which means no income for the following 27 months. The negative part about going to school part-time is that it prolongs the time until I actually begin working outside of school. Any thoughts from any other MPH students or potential students?? FYI- I'm 22 with one year of work experience, so I think I'm at the age where I can take my time, regardless of whether I decide to get more education or degrees in future. Anyone agree? Feel free to comment, as I am sure (or at least hope) other people are going through the same type of decisions. Thanks!
