    I am very interested in DrPH programs because my career goals involve more community based public health work. I have heard however that applying to a DrPH program basically means you will get little to no consideration for financial aid as opposed to PhD students. Does anyone have experience with this or know if it's true?

      This is true. I have the same dilemma. I applied to JH, UNC, and the Uniformed Services University. I'm limited to the schools that I can apply to due to my current employment with the government. I prefer to go to JH and UNC but because of the lack of funding I expanded my options. USU is a good school and it doesn't charge any tuition.
