Dear my fellow aspiring school of public health students. I am sure the question of school's merits have been asked a million times and i have found your advises to be constructive for the most part. Here is the dilemma: I just got an email today from Johns Hopkins telling me that i have been accepted to their epidemiology of infectious disease program. Also i am considering Yale's Epidemiology of Microbial disease as i have been accepted to their department. Both of the schools and programs are wonderful. I love infectious diseases and i think both schools will offer me the education. I am also using MPH as an auxillary degree as my passion is MD (medicine)---which i will pursue right after school of public health (2yrs masters). So, I have to make some painful decision in the coming week and i need your sincere input. Yale pretty much gave me loans with few grants. Hopkins did not specify Financial aid. I will greately appreciate your feedbacks and good luck to you all as you embark on your endavors!
