    Dear guys

    Regarding the Johns Hopkins scholarship for 2nd year masters students, do you have any stats regarding the percent of students who can achieve a GPA>3 in their first year to become eligible for this scholarship? How much difficult is this requirement?

    Thank you!!! I heard back from Emory really fast but really I think the UNC Global Health program is much better! Keep your hopes up! You have been accepted in really great schools so far, Emory will get back soon!

    Congratulations to all who have gotten into these amazing programs, and good luck to those still waiting!

    Also, to those who have gotten into Emory, I encourage you to join the Admitted Students Class of 2021 group on Facebook! :D

    Congratulations! I’m not so familiar w combined PhD programs, BUT I think your stats are solid and you have relevant experience. Hopefully it’ll help you did undergrad at a very well known school of public health as well!

    Congrats! I'm finishing up my MPH at Brown this semester. Lmk if you have any questions.

    This year, Brown SPH made some major changes to admission. The staff, website, etc. are all new. I think they've been very positive changes. Just wanted to say something in case others are looking at past years' stuff about Brown. This year will be different!

    Congrats to you both! What exactly is Brown saying about aid? I haven't heard back yet but I'm interested to know if they're saying "you qualify for aid since you applied before the deadline" or whether they're saying "you have gotten aid, we will let you know how much soon"?

    The past several years, scholarship mention in the acceptance letter meant a 25% tuition reduction merit scholarship for most people. But like I said, things with admissions have changed a bit, so it's possible funding for MPH students has also changed.

    Thank you! The letter said "pleased to tell you that you've been awarded financial support", it goes on to say that the specific program will send further details later on.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Would you be able to tell me a little bit about UofM's facilities? Are the public health buildings nice?

    I wouldn't be worried about applying straight out of undergrad. If you got into both UofM and Emory, I would think you will be fine!

    They are super nice! There are two PH buildings and a few classrooms that the majority of classes are in. I luckily live in the neighborhood nearby so it is only about an 8 minute walk to the buildings from my house. The faculty are incredible and I have nothing but nice things to say about them.

    Yes, I interviewed late December and it was pretty chill, no longer than 20 minutes and at the end they mentioned a decision would come first week of January so I was stressing out a bit before I got the email haha

    Per last year's thread, this upcoming week is when Yale started to release admission decisions - hoping this year the timeline is the same! :xf:

    Hello! Interesting about your Yale video questions assessment. May I ask if your application was marked complete by Yale? Mine was a couple of weeks ago but I have not received the video questions (yet)....

    Hi
    I’m an international medical graduate, and I have applied to this program of UNC, and I’ve not received any email email except automatic ones just after submitting my application and supplemental application. Have you received more emails from them? Our stats are almost similar and I hope both of us be accepted at UNC-Applied Epi If you have any cobcern or toughts to share with me, do not hesitate to message me.

    I applied for health policy and haven’t received one. Based on the responses here I’m starting to think it’s specifically for EPI

    I think this is a language issue. I would be very surprised if Yale, in 2019, sent video Qs through the mail rather than email
