I'm in the same boat as you-- deciding between UW and Berkeley (and Columbia) for epidemiology (current interest HIV/AIDS, but that may well change with exposure to a wider range of topics).Is anyone here know enough to compare UC Berkeley to UWashington for infectious disease epidemiology? I'm be curious to what people have to say.
They consider you for this along with your application. I did not even know they had something like this until I got offered the same thing.How did u get your tuition waived, if you don't mind me asking? That's such a blessing for you and a stipend on top of that doing an MPH. Did I need to apply to a specific program in order to get the opportunity to have my tuition waived? Congratulations!

It is not separate. I think you just have to find a professor that has an open project or that is expecting funding in the next few months. Then, it is more likely you will be able to take advantage of this.Is this the same thing as getting an RA position? I know that if you can get "hired" by a professor as an RA, UW waives the tuition and pays a stipend. I met with several professors on visit day to discuss positions, but none of them had any openings.
Or is this "tuition waver" somehow separate from an RA-ship and simply based on merit/need?
