I'm applying to CHS at UIC and am also a bit nervous about the acceptance rate. It's been tough getting in touch with program staff and of course there's no polite way to inquire about the low acceptance rate! Does anyone have any feedback on the quality of the CHS program (Comm. Health Sciences) there?

I'm applying to UIC CHS track too. Those acceptance rates scared the bejeezus out of me. And I had specifically avoided picking any of the top 10 schools to apply to bc I had figured, "what's the point" I wanna hear what it's like at UIC too...

I am currently an MPH-EPI student at UIC. I got accepted in to UIC with decent GRE scores and I had a year of work experience in clinical research. The EPI department is decent at UIC. From what I have heard from friends in other departments, the HPA department at UIC has some of the best professors (a combination of JD/MD/DrPH and PHD).
