    I think you are a shoe-in for most of your florida schools assuming ECs are good...

    With that said, FL tuition rates are usually pretty good... assuming you aren't picky... I would just apply to all/most of FL schools you are comfortable with, and then apply to big name schools you might like (JHU as you listed, duke, etc.) ... dream a little why not you never know what might happen??

    and of the two, I'd say Gtown has a bad environment in terms of competition and facilities but a great match list/name/training... GW is newer, more DC centralized/good public health program etc. .... both are $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ however...
