Hello All, Ok so here is a new thread for Fall 2012 MPH applicants and of course I need some encouragement or help. I am currently a senior at one of the UCs and my dream school is UCLA with SDSU next and Loma Linda last (I obviously would like to stay in California) My stats: I am an African-American female (it may make a difference lol) I did my general education at Rutgers University and had a terrible gpa: 2.750 and I am very bad at math and science but got a B in chemistry and the highest math I have completed is Pre-Calc (and barely passed) I will have completed my upper division classes at the UC where I attend and my current gpa is 3.82 (I became serious) I am an Anthro major and my anthro gpa is 3.85 and a psych minor with a gpa of 3.82. I also plan on taking a bio class and a physical science course to help. I have lined up 4 different volunteer opportunities doing research for MPH and psychology and working with Autistic children. Oh and I still have to take the GRE. I want to join the behavioral sciences side of MPH and do not plan on doing epi or environmental. Please be honest do I have a shot at UCLA???
