I am guessing that people who got their application to Yale sent for review before the holiday break are receiving their decisions now. I applied before the deadline but my application only got submitted for review the day after their holiday break. I have not received an email today. Maybe next week? Who knows?

For Yale, did you get a separate email saying your app had been sent into review? I applied on 12/15, got the "Application Received by YSPH" email which did say "We have begun the initial process of reviewing your application and will contact you via e-mail if any items are missing." on 12/17, and then the email from the Associate Director of Admissions on 12/21, but nothing else...
I've been wondering this too! I also never received an e-mail about my app being sent for review (applied 12/15), so maybe they just haven't gotten to our batch yet.

Yale received my application 11/30 and sent it for review 12/7 - I haven’t heard back yet! I applied to SBS, so I think it’ll depend on the department.

Mine was sent to review around the same time for SBS. Here's hoping we hear decisions next week 🤞

From the responses, I am beginning to think that most of us who are waiting for decision from Yale are SBS applicants.

I applied to the APMPH - SBS track on 11/29 and got the personalized url email on 11/30. Then got the app recvd email 12/7, app complete email on 12/14. Currently waiting for the decision.

Okay, I am slightly paranoid I applied to JHU wrong...I am wanting to do the full-time MPH... Applied to the "MPH - Full Time for Summer (July) 2021"

Looking to focus on Social & Behavioral Sciences in Public Health or Aging and Public Health but I honestly don't remember choosing a concentration when I applied on SOPHAS. Yikes, help! Thanks all

Bumping this again in case anyone knows!

Does anyone know if Yale competes with other financial aid packages? I received the 20k Horstmann scholarship and I was wondering if they would match a financial aid package offered to me by a different school?

I read a post from last year's thread and someone said they emailed Yale about increasing their financial aid package. The financial aid officer said that they don't usually offer more aid because they actually overcommit (since they assume that some students who are admitted with aid will reject the offer). It can't hurt to ask, though? They seem very open to questions.

Shocked, received an update from Yale that I was awarded the 60k Horstmann Scholarship. Admission was enough!! So, so grateful (and it took almost the full 10 days to receive, so don't lose hope for aid!)

Is anyone else feeling impatient and a bit disheartened? Last I heard from a school was nov 24. I submitted all my apps before nov 15, before some of the people who have already heard from Columbia and Yale...
I applied to the policy programs if that makes any difference. If they already passed my app I wish they would just send a rejection now.

I am sure there are many schools
still reviewing the application. Also, it's just January. You shouldn't lose hope so soon. Hold on tight, who knows you may soon hear from the program you wish to be in!
Good luck!

I just wanted to say I read your profile you posted earlier and you seem very well positioned and passionate, and I am sure you will hear good news soon! I applied to schools at the end of September and am now just hearing back from those that aren't rolling in the traditional sense. Hang in there and believe in yourself!

Echoing all of the responses to this, I applied around the time you did and have only heard from 2 programs. It all depends on the departments and their review processes. You'll probably hear from multiple programs in the next few weeks!

I haven't gotten anything except confirmation emails, and most of mine were in by mid November as well so you aren't alone! Looking at previous forums it looks like Brown did a big release on the 15th the past two years, so hopefully some news tomorrow!

@rtr2020 I wouldn't despair at all. Judging by your profile signature, you have been accepted some of the best schools that many of us on SDN would trade in a heartbeat. You've got into 4 out of the 9 schools that you applied to; that roughly 50% hit.

There are many of us, such as myself, waiting for at least one acceptance (even if it is not the one we want to go to), just to boost our "confidence". For the record, I have applied to 6 schools for different programs (none of them "safe" schools) and not heard from anyone :)

I am not trying to be philosophical, or as Panda would wisely put it - "kung-fuey" or anything but, I strongly believe in- "If it is meant to be, it will happen".

Even if I get admitted to any of the programs that I applied to, I don't know how I am going to come up with the money for this, the stimulus check is not going to last that long!

Is anyone else obsessively checking their emails hoping that Emory will come out this week?!
I was told by the admissions office today that Emory would be releasing the decisions in the next few weeks. Not sure if this week would be it.

They sure did give a very vague answer. I think everyone is excepting the release within the next few weeks already anyway 😩

Yeah for reals, those are good schools you got into already. JHU is already #1 :rolleyes::lol::rofl:

I'll let other people pad your ego, should they deem that's necessary 😬
