    An international student, receive two admissions. My family can afford at most $50000 (for tuition and living expenses). So please compare/describe the admissions in these two aspects:
    (1) The difficulty of finding financial supports (TA/RA/Fellowships) after enrollment (during the next 4-5 years in the program).
    (2) The job opportunity after graduation.


    Choice 1 (Tuition: $15000 per YEAR):
    Admission (currently without financial supports, but pending) into the PhD Program in Nutritional Science @ Rutgers University (New Brunswick).


    Choice 2 (Tuition: $15000 per TERM, more expensive than choice 1):
    First, admission (without financial supports) into the MPH program in Epidemiology @ School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh.
    Then, after the first two terms, reapply to the DrPH/PhD Program in Epidemiology at the same school (and do my best to receive the financial supports).
