    Would anyone accepted to Harvard (SM 80-credits) or Columbia (MPH in Epi or similar) be willing to share their experience/stats?

    I am trying to get a feel for how realistic a shot I have at Harvard after deciding to pursue a Masters

    Might be easier for u to put up your stats as many are still waiting to hear from Harvard and Columbia.

    Undergrad GPA and major, undergrad school name or tier ranking, GRE numbers If you have them, research experience, work experience, other unique attributes .

    And what you want to study.

    GPA: 3.45 from mid-tier school, worked full-time through undergrad

    GRE: Haven't yet taken

    Experience: 3 years as research coordinator

    Research: 1 first authored paper, 2 poster presentations at international conference, hopefully another first authored paper in very reputable journal this summer

    Programs: MS or MPH in Epi, Preferably concentration on Epi of Aging (all research is geriatric health related) Eventually to pursue PhD

    Wish List Schools: Harvard>Columbia>Yale

    I know it is difficult without a GRE score, but what should I be shooting for. Harvard is my top choice.

    I think you have a good shot at harvard. especially for their MS program. They are not all too competitive and there are very few students who do Aging.
